The above coordinates will take you to a grave marker, not the cache. This cache will expose you to a site deep with West Seneca history. Welcome to Lower Ebenezer Cemetery, home of the graves of many Ebenezer Society members. To get the coordinates to the actual cache you will have to visit a tombstone and locate some numbers. Use the coordinates to take you to the corner of the cemetery. Of the two tombstones in that area, use the one that will be on your left side.

* G = This fellow was born on what date? G equals the second digit of the date.
* E = The year this guy was born in was a long time ago. E equals the second digit of his birth year.
* O = This guy died in the year ____. Add 5 to the last digit of the year he died in to get "O"
* C = Add two to the first digit of the day that this guy died to get "C".

Ohhh HB, you didn't just go old school on us did you?!?
As with most of our HB math today we just sort of threw stuff together, and decided to drive around until we were inspired to cache hunt. Haha. This one actually has been one I've wanted to do since it came out because I really like the background on it. So since we were in the area today, this one happily came upon my radar screen - so with Chicky the math guru (and Gregg the TB as her calculation-checking ward) we arrived at the first stage and commenced with the mathematical portion of our journey.

After a few different calculations, and a bout or two of what we fear Urkel was suffering from, we headed out to the final. Happily we arrived in an area that confirmed our math was close - so we followed the area to our zero. Unfortunately our arrow didn't give us any indication that there'd be a moat crossing. Only momentarily discouraged, Gregg the TB and I found negotiable crossing points (not because they were appropriate, just because in the end that's where we crossed...haha), and quickly upon arrival Gregg the TB made the find (which led me to exclaim the opening sentence of this cache log ).

Happily we signed the log and rehid the cache. Then back to moat crossing we went - only this time with the aid of the Chicky Bridge Making Co. They weren't the sturdiest of bridges, but they did make the re-cross a weebit more entertaining for those watching at home. Thanks HB for a great history lesson, and for getting me to a couple wonderful areas.

This is a great cache, HB. I had to try it three times though! Don't know what I did the first two times, but I came up with the same WRONG calculation both times. Finally, I read the logs, and everyone mentioning an obstacle which I never encountered with my calcs, told me to try one more time, CAREFULLY. Then I found the cache no problem. Don't remember what I traded, TFTC.
