I figured it was about time to take a little meander and check out this cache as I hate seeing things go unfound (esp. if things are missing!). So with G$ at my side to keep my company we headed out into the wild unknown. Had a great time hiking these beautiful woods as I always do and am even more happy to see that all legs are in good shape - even the final. It was really well hidden by the debris that helped cover it up over the last year-plus. Glad to say though it is still there - and of course should anyone want some help before seeking out this multi please let me know. While I want to provide a fun challenge, my true goal is to provide everyone with an enjoyable old school hike through great woods. That's what it's all about! This cache is one of my favorites and I’m guiddy to announce that is good to go for another year!

Now this is a multicache that was done right. Szuchie, you never fail to deliver when you put out a multi in a large forest. I decided to give this one a try after working until about 11:00am this morning. The day was perfect, It was a little overcast and much cooler than recent days and after a nice drive over to the parking coordinates, I then found the trail head and proceeded to to make my way to the first leg. Wow! what incredible scenery along the way to, and at the first leg. After a quick search I was able to come up with the first leg and then I knew what I was looking for (Hopefully). Off I went to the second leg and when I arrived I was treated to some more amazing scenery and another quick find. Now it got really fun as I made the short trips to the location of the next legs and then finally, the final. I won't divulge much more here about the cache because I will leave that to the next finders. This cache couldn't have been more fun to do, and the real bonus to this cache is the incredible forest it is located in. I found that if you stick to the trail most of the way it definitely cuts down on the bushwhacking. If you need to bushwhack the forest is easy to walk in and very open, without any heavy undergrowth. It is so nice to be in a forest that has not been a victim of the chainsaw, and this is a rare condition in any Erie County forests. I give 2 thumbs up on this cache Szuchie, great job! Thanks for the fun! -Paleoman52-

After trouble with the third leg, Mrs. Nogg and I returned to finish this one off. What an awesome place. This was such a well thought out cache. Thanks Szuchie!

The problem with Navicache is that it doesn't let you post very many pictures with your log so here's anothe log just to post another photo.

Today's work day went a little long... then we got distracted after the dogs had their dinner... then we got motivated to find this cache (or stage 1)... then we realized the time: 7:37pm. Hmmmm...

Well, at least we could find the parking coords and the trailhead (and maybe check out more, if light permits). After arriving and some quick calculations of how much daylight we had left, we decided (chickened-out) that it was best to start this hunt another day.

This DEFINITELY looks like a hunt we're gonna love. Looking forward - totalnrg.

When I first noticed this new placement by Szuchie on Navicache this morning is was without my specs and I got all excited because I was certain it was titled “The Case Luggers Companion” and I thought for sure this would be a multi concluding at Consumer’s Beverage Center or Brewer’s Retail. I loaded up, ripped the cache page form the computer and sprinted south knowing the FTF prize had to be a least a case of Milwaukee’s Best or other premium lager. It wasn’t until I arrived at the parking coords and re-examined the cache page with my vision corrected that I realized my blunder and all the time I was thinking if I bring a case Szuchie will be my companion. Dang. Well not wanting just to waste the fuel required to get her I decided to give this Cache Logger’s Companion a go. Hopefully it will all work out..

I was greeted at the parking coords by a fawn just about sunrise this morning and if that isn’t always a sign of good things to come I don’t know what is. Shortly thereafter I began my Szuchie guided tour of this piece of county forestry at leg one of the journey. I arrived in time to be welcomed by the bullfrogs in force that were soon joined by a small flock of blue jays in warning all other living creatures of my presence. The sun was just cresting over the tree line and the fog just lingered on the pond long enough to make it a special moment and as Szuchie suggested I lingered a bit to absorb the sights sounds and smells of the area. I don’t exactly remember at which point I first noticed the pines giving way to a spectacular hardwood forest but I was stunned by it none the less. I know it may sound a little hokey but I do love trees and I don’t want to say I’m proud of cheating on my favorites, the Northern Red Oaks, but it wasn’t long before I was hugging several Cherry and Maple tree attempting to estimate their circumference and guess their age and height. There was a moment when the quest for the cache wasn’t even relevant any longer. Simply moving from tree to tree as each seemed bigger and taller than the last was reason enough to be here this morning. While meditating between legs resting comfortably against the proudest Sugar Maple I ever have met a flock of turkeys moved quietly past not noticing this intruder until passing within a few feet of me and it was at that moment I realized I simply wasn’t in a county woodlot any longer but rather somehow had entered a Cathedral of Nature. All at once I felt very fortunate to be allowed entry here and came to realize my insignificance in the universe of nature. What a great feeling. Eventually I continued on the search for the cache that led me here and was gifted with visits to many more scenic and special areas. I spent moments at each one taking a few photos here or hunting for newts there. I knew that I simply didn’t want to race from leg to leg and miss any of the highlights of the tour. Eventually it all came to an end though and we accomplished what we set out this morning to do and felt a tinge of disappointment knowing that the guided tour was concluded. Looking on the bright side however there was a bit of a hike back to the parking coords; perhaps if we bushwhacked out we could find things Szuchie doesn’t even know about.

To those of you that stayed with us for the entire log all I can say is please go attempt this one and find out what caching should be all about.

Thanks Szuchie, finally I have one of your multi’s completed and by the way we grabbed the pink utility rope and left behind a bunch of school supplies, markers and stuff.

May I ask where the parking and trailhead coords are? It would have saved me some bushwacking... hahaha!

What an awesome place. Snickers and I headed out for this one at about 5pm realizing that we only had a few hours before we needed to be home. After bushwacking through the forest we came up with leg 1 with ease. Leg 2 found me but sliding as I still have not learned "Don't always believe the GPS until it settles down". We did come up with leg 2 with a short search and headed deeper into the forest in search of leg 3. After about 15 minutes of searching we came up empty. Unfortunatly we needed to head home for dinner. We'll be back

Thanks Szuchie for showing us this marvelous place!
