Note 08 Oct 2002    Letchworth Fall Cachers' Gathering  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I had a fantastic time, and decided to stay over Sunday and complete a few more caches. Thanks to the organizers for creating this wonderful event, and everyone who participated and pitched in to make it special. My legs are still sore from all that climbing.

Final cache count:
-2 successful "Dash for the Cache"
-8 successful standard caches
* What's the Point
* Mossy Pine
* Letchworth Fall Geocache special (I lost the paper so don't know what it's real name is)
* West Meet's East
* End of 18
* Tea Table Trudge
* Huff & Puff
* Busy as a Beaver
-1 unsuccessful attempt at "Low & Behold", I gave up after 90 minutes of searching through the underbrush.

I will post entries in the individual on-line logs over the next few days.

I couldn 06 Oct 2002    Low & Behold (Read Warning)  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

My only miss of my trip, I found 8 others in 2 days and 2 of the "dash for the cache" event caches. I searched around for about 1.5 hours in the underbrush looking for the cache without luck. The location my CPS was pointing to was a bit (30') downstream from the lookout. I heard some voices and went over to find the lookout with 2 men with fishing rods admiring the view (they had been fishing elsewhere nearby). Even though I was unsuccessful in finding the cache, the view was worth the effort. After continuing searching around for quite a while I decided to call it quits and went on to find 2 more nearby caches before the end of the day.

I found it! 06 Oct 2002    End of 18  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

A nice walk for my first cache of the day. I was staying at the campground and as this was nearby I decided to let my tent dry out while I took a walk. Found the cache easily, and continued down to the end of the trail before heading back to camp.

I found it! 06 Oct 2002    Busy as a Beaver  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

There has to be a better way into this cache. My last of the day, and last one before heading home to Richmond Hill, Ontario. It was getting late in the day so I just decided to continue on as I was determined to find this one. As I got close I realised I would have to cross the water or find another longer way in, and did so over the beaver dam (one shoe got soaked). I just plowed through the tall brush, and ended up with several scrapes on the arms and legs and over 200 small prickly burrs that I had to remove from T-shirt, shorts, and skin.

The cache itself was easy to spot, and I quickly filled in the log entry and headed back on my way before it got too dark. I wanted to find a better way back, but I did want to get back to the same road I had entered by as my car was about a mile away. I was able to go around the water and find a better way back although it was about 1/2 mile longer. Next time I visit I will look to enter from the other side.

I found it! 05 Oct 2002    West Meets East  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

Excellent walk in to this cache, saw 25 deer on the way in (about 10 in the car and the rest while on foot) and heard another on the way out (too dark to see). I also saw a fox heading back to camp. I tackled this one a little too late at night and arrived at the cache as it was getting very dark and without a flashlight. I wasn't about to stick around and search in the dark, but with a quick look around I was able to guess it's location. Took a picture, and signed the log book by the backlight of my GPS; hopefully it is readable.

Note 05 Oct 2002    Brogan's Topo Lesson  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

I headed directly into the woods from the paking spot, and found out the the cache was on the other side of the ravine and would have to head back to cross it. I was with another group (this was the weekend of the geocachers picnic), and they noted that the Mossy Pine cache was nearby so we searched for and found it before heading over for this one.

I arrived at the location for this cache, and Gandalf also arrived but had been there searching earlier in the day. He thought he knew where it should be (based on an additional clue) and searched about 50-60' from the location my GPS indicated and found it quickly. We were signing the log book as another group was heading down the hill.

I found it! 05 Oct 2002    What's the Point  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

I only had the coordinates for the 1'st part of this multi-part cache and no instructions. When I couldn't find the cache I gave and went on to find my "dash for the cache" cache. While searching for my cache, another group came by and stumbled on this one (they were searching for the same one as I). We all signed the log book and went on to find our original goal.

Note 03 Oct 2002    Letchworth Fall Cachers' Gathering  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

My daughter and I decided last night that we will attend. We are travelling from Richmond Hill, Ontario (Just north of Toronto).

I see that Catsup, Mustard & Relish are needed, I will bring.

We will probably be camping, but if anyone knows a good B&B that is close by I would appreciate hearing about it.

It looks like I missed the deadline for the Dam tour, let me know if there is still room.
