I found it! 12 Jun 2010    P-Mans FLT 2  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

I was up early or so I thought I was, and out of the house by 6:15am. Apparently not early enough to beat these seasoned cachers tho. This is a well done multi and I really enjoyed the journey through the woods. Thanks for the nice cache in this branch of the finger lakes trail my wife and I adopted.

I found it! 15 Apr 2010    My Walking Stick  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 1 )

I am the first one to see Snowman's stick! And Szuchie could have been first but he was too busy with his own stick or something and didn't keep his date with Snowman, too bad. That is a fine stick snowman, thanks for the first to find prize, I will treasure it. I was also informed that I am still Snowman's Hero now that Szuchie stood him up. This is a cool cache and you did a great job with the cache. Keep the cool caches coming Snowman, I'm enjoying them.

Note 12 Apr 2010    My Walking Stick  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 1 )

Hey Snowman I have seen your walking stick. Can I see it again? Hey I'm getting a little concerned about this new affectionate relationship you are developing with my boy Szuchie. I'm very picky about who I let him hangout with, so don't lead him on and then break his heart because there will be Paleo consequences coming your way, LOL

I found it! 20 Jan 2010    Szuchie's Sense of Serenity...  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

This was the cache I’ve been waiting for, for so long. Its been a long time since I had the privilege of finding a new Szuchie cache, and even longer since I’ve had such a fun multi to do with a nice long walk in the woods thrown in to the mix. When I saw this post yesterday I knew I had to find time to go there and see what Szuchie had come up with. I also knew I would not be disappointed. It just so happened that Butterflyguy was in a caching mood this morning and gave me a call to see if I would like to join him when he got to my area and pick up some new caches that had recently posted. I had planned on going out anyway but caching with Butterflyguy sounded like more fun, so he met with me and we grabbed a couple of caches around Warsaw and then headed to the high hills of Wyoming County. These hills really are high, I read 1950 feet above sea level at the top of one hill while doing this cache.
So anyway we soon arrived in the area of the parking coordinates and I’m here to tell you that winter is in full force here, lots of snow in the woods and the roads where completely covered with snow and ice, just like the middle of January should be. We noticed the nice trail that went into the forest and made our way to the first area, letterbox style. The directions were good and we located what we needed at the first location, now it was off to the second leg. Along the way we could hear the swishing sounds of a large wind turbine as we neared the second leg and eventually we could see the turbine very well. The second leg blended in very well and after a 10 minute search we found it and got the information we needed from it.
The walk to the final was definitely the icing on the cake with this cache. We traveled on a really nicely groomed path through many wooded landscapes, from pines to hardwoods and mixed forests. We agreed that we didn’t want the journey to end and the only disappointment we had was when the cache was over and we had to leave. We spotted an interesting area which we though held the final and as we drew near we found the very well hidden cache and signed the logbook. We saw that Cayuga Crew had been here before us and we were saddened to see that his Aunt Tillie died again and he had to take time off from work because of it. We were happy for him though that he had time to fit this cache into his day.
Butterflyguy and I took a long slow walk back to his vehicle and looked for some moth cocoons along the way. Butterflyguy had spotted one on the way into the forest and grabbed it before we headed out. Szuchie, this cache is a masterpiece and releasing it in the winter months is brilliant because the forest is so quiet and tranquil this time of year. The hike was easy and very enjoyable and all the finds were challenging but quite findable. This cache is very appropriately named and it is not only Szuchie’s Serenity but serenity for every cacher who ventures here and does this cache. I hope to see more caches here from you in the future, Thanks for the great day in the Wyoming County forest.

Note 19 Jan 2010    Szuchie's Sense of Serenity...  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

I have this one loaded and ready to go. Maybe Wednesday or Thursday I will go for it. Looks like a nice hike, more to follow,

I found it! 17 Oct 2009    Letchworth Fall Gathering VIII  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I have looked forward to this event since I first saw it posted. I got there early and had a great breakfast with Brogan and Szuchie and then slowly the crowd began to arrive. Lots of great food all around and I had my share of it. The raffle was really fun and then the highlight of my day was going to find the three event caches that I didn't place with EZrider and Easygoer. We were the only ones that went and found the Wolf Creek cache and what a cache it was. We all got to take a NYGO coin and to see an awesome view that not many get the chance to see. Thanks to all the others that worked so hard to put this great event on. I look very forward to next year!

I found it! 28 Jul 2009    DANGER!!! A New Hive of Killer Bees  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

This was such a perfect summer evening that I just didn't want to sit home and waste it, so I mentioned to Mrs. P-Man that we could try and find that tough bee that had everyone stumped so far. It sounded like a good idea to her and off we went. When we arrived at the first location I wanted to check, Howie buzzed by on his motorcycle and spun around and told us that he had not planned on doing this tonight but now he couldn't resist the temptation. So I found another bee that was blind and then I saw that there was another close by so we all went for that one, which proved to be the toughest one yet. We all looked and looked and after a lengthy search by all of us I spotted something and Howie and I made the grab, WooHoo!, this was the hard one that had stumped everyone so far, so we got the info we needed and headed out to the rest of the adventure. As Howie and Jan said before me I won't reveal any more info here because that would spoil all the fun for the next searchers. It was a true team effort for Howie and Jan, Zoggy, Mrs. P-Man and I, which each one of the team had a hand in getting from one place to another. This cache is worth every frustrating minute it may take you to do it, because the reward at the end is really worth it all. The icing on the cake was to stop at Killerb's house and share our adventures with him. This cache is a true masterpiece of ingenious planning, hiding, and taking you to interesting and beautiful places. Thanks killerb for putting this cache out and for giving us all such a fun caching adventure, -Paleoman-

Note 27 Jul 2009    DANGER!!! A New Hive of Killer Bees  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

I got started on this fun challenge this evening and after locating the first stage I decided to try finding the nearest bee, it just so happened that Howie and Jan were also there searching. After a spell I decided to contact the head bee and tell him that the bee had flown away. I searched a little more and made the huckle after expanding my search area, soon after this Howie and then Jan spotted the elusive little bee. Now it was back to our vehicles and as we arrived there the head bee himself pulled in after spending the day painting his porch. We all had a nice chat and I shared my theories as to the identities of some secret people involved with our game. Howie and Jan headed out to find more bees and KB and I chatted a little more before I left for home with plans to return with Mrs. P-Man and seek out the remaining bees. Thanks KB for the fun challenge, it has been a while since I have had the pleasure of doing one of your new caches and the wait has been definitely been worth it. -Paleoman-

Note 11 May 2009    Letchworth Fall Gathering VIII  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I can't wait to see everyone again, this should be a great time as usual. Mrs. P-Man and I will be there, lord willing! -Paleoman-

I found it! 17 Apr 2008    Down but not out  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

This was my sixth find of the day and it was one of the best locations I had seen all day. I had just completed "Weather or Not" and I was really looking forward to see where I would go next in this forest. The day couldn't have been more perfect for caching, the temps were in the 70's and the sky was bright blue with no breeze. Also there were really no bugs or vegetation to deal with, (I dealt with all the prickers at the last cache). As I hiked to the cache I kept my eyes open for any shed deer antlers but was unable to spot any. This was a nice down hill hike and the forest was so open and the leaves were dry and very crunchy. I got really lucky on this find, which by the way was very well hidden, as I was making my way to ground zero I found the cache and didn't have to use the hint. This was an awesome cache placement and another classic hide by a charter member. You charter members really know how to pick a great spots and how to really hide a cache. I signed the log book and checked out the swag, but I didn't make any trades. I hid this back into its spot and I concealed it really well so the next cacher may have to search a bit to find this one. Thanks for the great adventures you proved with your two "Old School" caches! I really enjoyed my day here. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 17 Apr 2008    Weather or not (TEMPORARILY DISABLED)  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

I have been wanting to try this cache since I first saw it listed. It just so happened that I was in the area today doing some other caches and I had the paperwork with me so I thought I would give it a try. This is really a removed area and the kind I like the most. On my way to the good weather parking on this 70+ degree day I encountered a lot of snow along the road and was really surprised to see it with the temps so warm for the last few days. I finally arrived at the parking area and I was glad for two things, #1 I had a four wheel drive truck, and #2 the road was pretty dry and just rutted up from the winter. I then started hiking down the road until I came to the blow down area, WOW!!! this is an amazing spot, mother Nature has so much power, everything was totally leveled. I found a decent path to the first area and found the coordinates right away. That was a very cool tag, I liked the engraving of the tornado on it. I punched in the next coordinates and saw where I had to go and I can tell you this, I am so glad I did this cache this time of year and not a couple of months from now, the pricker bushes are terrible and I have a few scratches to testify to this fact.I finally arrived at the second waypoint and I went into search mode, I used the clue to help me pin this one down and after a brief search and a few more pricker scratches I found the 30 cal container. This was also another amazing place and the tornado flattened most of this area too. I couldn't imagine what it would have been like to have been here when that tornado struck. I was so excited to have found these 2 legs and now I was off to the final. I liked where the final coords were taking me because at least here I was out of the blow down area and the ever present grabbing pricker bushes. The woods were open and calm and wild life was skittering around everywhere. I found the fallen tree and paced off the distance and found the cache in the first place I searched. It was very well hidden and I was so surprised at the size of this ammo can. I signed the log and traded a dollar for a scratch off ticket and then just sat there for a while taking in my surroundings. This is one of the best Old school caches I have done in quite some time and I believe that this is a classic hide. I checked my GPS and I saw that the "Down but not out" cache was not too awfully far away so I re-hid the cache and slowly trekked my way to the next cache. Thanks so much for keeping this Oldie but a Goodie going, it is really worth all the effort and scratches I received to get to the final. Great job! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 25 Feb 2008    Always #47 - Batavia N.Y.  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

This type of cache always drives me crazy and I always have to look harder to find them. This cache was no exception. After a longer than should have been search, I finally spotted this very well hidden and camouflaged container. That was just half the battle, I then had to try to get the logbook out, once I finally did this I was able to sign the log and hide it back in place. Thanks Mick for the fun cache to find, I actually enjoyed it! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 12 Jan 2008    One for the Crew  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

The thing I like about Navicaching is the quality of the caches I have done so far, this cache was no exception to this. I had just finished checking in at work for the morning and I had a few hours available to me before returning to check in again at work so I thought I would give this multi a try. As I drove from my work site to the site of the first leg the road conditions changed many times from dry to wet then slushy to completely snow covered and very icy back to just wet roads with no snow. The joy of living in Wyoming County! Anyway I soon arrived at my destination and found the park completely empty of muggles and the gate was wide open so I drove in as close as I could get and began solving the first part of this well thought out cache. The first leg was very easy and that is the last time I had it that easy because the next stage took me to an impressive area with a great view and I searched here for quite awhile before I saw the very clever coordinates (great job!). then it was off to the 3 rd leg. As I walked the distance to this leg I was pondering what I might find at this leg as I was really surprised and had never seen what I found at the second leg before. When I arrived at this leg I found something I couldn't quite figure out and then looked around in some good hiding spots before I was about ready to give up. I decided to try a lifeline and after an unsuccessful call to the cache owner I tried to call the last finder to see if I was on the right track. After a nice chat with him and really not much information to give away the location of the 3rd leg, I went back to searching. One more time I wish I had remembered to bring my glasses along with me because I found this leg in a spot I had looked at when I first arrived. This was another well done hide and I was so thrilled to have come up with it, There is so much more I would like to say about this leg but it would give away the location to the next searcher. Now I was halfway through this challenge and heading for the 4th leg. I enjoyed my hike to this place and I was glad to see this area once again as it had been quite awhile since my last visit there. I made this one much harder that it had to be and once again I blame that on the fact that I had left my glasses in the truck. Finally I was now off to the final and I made quick work of this. I happily signed the log and made sure that it was very well hidden before I left. This was a fabulously well thought out and laid out multi.

I found it! 01 Nov 2007    Casino Kodak  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

This was my last of 6 finds I made this afternoon. The hardest part of the cache was finding a good place to park. This is a very busy highway and finally I just pulled off the road far enough to let traffic by. I found the cache right away and signed the logbook. Thanks for the cache and dash, -Paleoman52-

I found it! 25 Oct 2007    INSPIRATION POINT GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

This cache has been on my to-do list for quite awhile and I was near this area today and I had my mountain bike in the back of my truck with me so I thought I would give this cache a try. It has been a while since I had done a Rocky cache and today was a day made for this type of caching experience. I arrived at the parking area and there was a State Trooper pulling radar duty sitting there, I proceeded to unload my bike and I made sure that I had my permit in my pocket before I started my journey. The trooper kept a watchful eye on me and then decided to leave the area so this was a good sign that I wouldn't have any trouble doing this cache. The road leading back to the cache was in really good shape and I made the 2 mile trip in about 12 minutes. Along the way I passed a couple paddling a canoe along the shoreline. It was such a beautiful Fall day and I was really enjoying the trip to this cache. I arrived at the end of the road and I made the trek into the small woods between me and the shoreline. I couldn't believe how low the water was and how far out the water was from the shoreline, it definitely has been a dry summer. I went into search mode and I didn't find the cache right away, I became a little concerned that maybe the cache had been muggled because there was a crude lean-to erected nearby. I decided to take another reading with my GPS and this time it led me to a more promising spot. I located the cache after a quick search of the area and it was very well hidden since the newest coating of leaves had covered it. Rocky you never cease to amaze me at the beautiful places you can find to place a cache. This place was so peaceful, removed, and inspirational. I signed the logbook and left a geocoin in the cache to lure others to find this place. Right after I re-hid the cache the couple in the canoe paddled by me and waved. Thanks again for the memorable caching experience that you provided with this cache. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 15 Oct 2007    Inspired By KillerB  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

I saw this post first thing this morning and knew I had to get there to be a part of any cache that is dedicated to KB. My first good news that I had today when I arrived at work was that I was promoted to boss so I decided to give everyone at the plant the day off and I though I should go caching to celebrate (after all I've only worked at this job for 33 1/2 years). After a 2 hour drive I finally arrived, (man the traffic was backed up) and I went into search mode. I pretty much exhausted every area I could think of to look when I had to answer natures call so I secretly hid off to the side, as I was answering natures call, well lets just say that something got uncovered (Sorry for future finders). I proceeded to "dry" off the first container with an old pair of underwear I found lying close by and I got the information I needed to proceed to the next stage. Believe it or not this stage was 100 times more difficult than the first one and once again I got lucky when I found it. I will spare you the details of how I found it but you can use your imagination. Lets just say I should have never had that vanilla Latte before I started looking for this cache. I was able to finish this cache in about 3 hours and that was only because I got lucky finding a couple of the legs. I signed the logbooks and didn't make any trades because I didn't have anything with me that came even close to what was in the cache. This is probably the very best cache I have ever done and I would say it is a fitting tribute to Killerb. Heck this was way better than anything Killerb has ever come up with. If I was KB I would be so honored to have a cache of this caliber dedicated to me, To quote Wayne form Wayne's World, "I am not Worthy". I can only say that maybe the difficulty and terrain rating should be raised a little to warn other cachers about what they are getting into. Gotta go I think that Latte has kicked in again, -Paleoman52-

I found it! 13 Oct 2007    Letchworth Fall Gathering VI  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

This event was everything I imagined it would be. The weather turned out much better than was predicted and I had a great time caching today with Butterflyguy and Ladybug. As soon as I pulled into the parking lot I met up with the Wicked Redheads and enjoyed visiting with them before I soon ran into Butterflyguy and Ladybug. We decided to do the event caches so we spent the rest of the morning doing the event cache and then the cache with 8 eggs to find, (we ended up finding all eight eggs). After this we made a beeline back to the event to enter our finds into the raffle. I was lucky this year and ended up winning a raffle prize (an awesome pin on compass). Many Thanks to Gamma kit and the gang for all the hard work they put into putting on this event. There was so much food and wonderful comraderie amongst all the cachers and the day flew by way too fast. I am already looking forward to next years gathering. A special congratulations to the Wicked Redheads for being the lucky winner of the antler handled stone knife I donated to the raffle. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 04 Oct 2007    Blair Witch  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I have been wanting to find this cache since I started caching a little over a year ago. I love these old school hides. I decided to only work a couple of hours this morning because today was an exceptionally beautiful day for this late in the year, and I didn't want to waste it at work. I arrived early at the parking/trailhead area and there was a lot of dew on the grass so I wore my mud boots. I became concerned about halfway to the cache because so far my journey was downhill all the way which meant I would be making a continuous uphill climb on the way out. I found the well hidden cache after a quick search and I signed the logbook. I didn't see anything I wanted to trade for so I sealed the ammo can back up and hid it back into place. I noticed that the wilderness experience cache was not too far away so I decided to keep going and head to this one. Thanks for the cache and for bringing me to this beautiful area. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 04 Sept 2007    Yggdrasil  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 4.5 )

This is a beautiful place with some awesome huge, old trees! Szuchie and I will share the first to find on this one. I hope that you don't mind but we made your cache even more fun and "challenging", maybe you should check on it and read our log entries. The coords were off but not enough for us 2 cache finding veterans. I shot some coords while I was at the site but I will not post them unless you beg us to, LOL! Thanks Huck for the fun cache. -Paleoman52-

Note 03 Sept 2007    big tree picnic log  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 4 )

I searched for this one today to see what the status of the cache is and I can definitely say that there is no log at the posted coordinates or anywhere nearby. This area is prone to high water when the dam is backed up and I found what I believe may have been the original log about .4 mile to the North on the North side of the Hogsback. Apparently the log has floated loose sometime in the past and has ended up here. This cache should be disabled or replaced. I recommend replacing it nearby because this is such a beautiful area to hike into. I'll be watching to see if this cache will get going again. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 28 Aug 2007    FATHERS DAY 04  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

I was checking for caches in my area and noticed that this one was available and hadn't had any logs recorded in a few years. So I decided to see if it was still there. I called up my geo-bud Bluestone and asked him if he would like to go along on the quest and we made plans to meet at 4:30pm. When I arrived Bluestone was already there and was checking out a really cool spot for a cache hide. I love this side of the park and I hadn't been down this trail in about a year. It was very dry in the woods due to our lack of much rainfall this summer. As our GPS's counted down a very likely spot for a good cache hide began to appear. I decided to check the high side and Bluestone went around the bottom. Before I could even get around to the lower side I heard a huckle-buckle come from BS. As I got closer to where he was I could see the ammo box right out in the open. I grabbed it from its hiding place and was very surprised to see that all was well with the cache, seeing that it was so exposed. I opened it up and was met with a decent amount of some nice trade goods. BS and I both made some trades and then we checked out the log book. There were a couple of recent signatures in there that appeared to be from non cachers, that just happened to discover the cache. We both signed the log and then I hid the cache back REALLY well for the next finder. I can tell you this much, it does not show now and it will require an effort to retrieve it. After hiding the cache we left to do a little more exploring of the area and tried to find the location of another nearby cache. Thanks for keeping this cache going and for bringing me to a place I had never visited before. Nice Cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 09 Aug 2007    The Cache Logger's Companion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

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-

I found it! 04 Aug 2007    Farm Kids: Doing It Right the First Time!  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

What a special time it was meeting with such a wonderful group of people at this cache bright and early this morning. I had to go to work first but then I made the trip over to the cache parking spot to find the area full of people. I arrived at about 7:20am and the first person I saw was J-Dog. She had gone to her car to get a huge plate full of chocolate Chip cookies that she made to trade to me for one of my arrowhead necklaces. Thanks J-Dog these cookies were awesome and I ate way too many of them this morning. After our trade I exited my truck and made my way over to the crowd of people standing around Killerb and I was so happy to see TazD, Frogize, Harv, Butterflyguy and Mrs. Butterflyguy, Caterp1llar, and of course Killerb. After quite a long time of chatting and catching up on all the geo-gossip we headed into the field and towards the woods where the first leg was hidden. As we approached the woods it became quite obvious that someone had been very busy in anticipation of Killerbs visit this morning. We we greeted by a sign and as we approached the cache area, there were many more intriguing signs posted about plus a roped off area for Killerb to search in. This was so funny and we all enjoyed watching KB run around the area reading all the signs. After many photos and Bo finding a special cache that was hidden for him right next to KB's stump, KB informed us that he had found this leg and leg #2 during his last visit and now it was my turn to see if I could find leg #2. I began my search in a couple of areas I had previously searched and had to endure several little stings from Killerb as I searched, (Man does this guy ever run out of venom?). After entertaining everyone with my confusion as to where the 2nd leg was hidden I finally spotted the very clever hide for this leg. Wow Jen, you amazed me even more with all the work you put into this leg, excellent job! Finally we could all go to the final and I tried to sneak up ahead while Killerb was busy talking. Once he spotted me he caught up to me in a hurry because I let him and didn't let me get to far ahead of him, after all he was on his 500th cache find and he didn't want me to Huckle him like he did to me on my 500th,(What a guy!). I decided to stay high and KB stayed low and as I was checking out a particular potential cache area, KB shouted "Huckle Buckle". Even though I had my hands on the cache spot I decided to let KB make the find and I took second because I am a super nice guy and respectful of my ELDERS. I also felt that KB definitely paid his dues on this cache after making numerous trips just to find the first leg. The cache was loaded with great trade goods and some TB's and I signed the log after KB and then Caterp1llar signed the log after she realized that she forgot to sign it the evening that she , her Dad, and Taz got FTF. J-Dog, I can't remember when I have enjoyed a cache as much as I enjoyed this one. It was so much fun reading and sending notes on the cache page and then I really enjoyed my 2 trips here to complete the cache. Your level of creativity on this cache has definitely raised the bar for future cache hides. Thanks for all the work that you did on this cache and for making your family farm available for us to explore and to find the magic that you found as a child growing up there. -Paleoman52-
Now I have to go and eat another chocolate chip cookie before my son eats them all.

I found it! 31 Jul 2007    Where It's At!! (Two Turntables and a Microphone!)  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Before I left for home from work today, I thought I would check to see if anyone had claimed this cache yet, nope still no takers so I thought I would give it a shot. On my way to the cache I happened to be passing by the home of the Red General, (BrianofJava) and I noticed the smallest member of the clan moseying around the front yard. So I decided to say “Hi” and see if Dad wanted to go along on this adventure. Luke told me that he was getting a minibike and that his older brothers were not, so he was pretty happy about this. About then the Red General appeared and I told him of my plans and asked him if he would like to go along and he said he was in. Off we went to Marilla. Now we had other plans and goals to accomplish along the way and BOJ managed to find 3 caches that I already had found. This tied him with Wobblestock for finds. Great joy was felt by BOJ in this feat. Now we were off to find “Boots Treasure” and “Where its at”.

After a quick find at the site of “Boots treasure”, we then made the short trip to Huckle Buckle’s newest cache. When we arrived there were no other vehicles around and the traffic was almost nonexistent. BOJ and I spent way too much time finding this leg and were almost ready to give up when following a lead BOJ gave me, I found the first leg. This gave us new hope and energy to complete the cache. The coordinates lead us to a quick find at the second leg but the way we interpreted the coordinates created some confusion, so more time than was needed again for us to figure out just where we should look for the final. We even went back to check the coordinates again at the 2nd leg and we discovered that maybe what we thought was a 9 was actually a 4. So back into the woods we went again, this time we meet another family of cachers. It was so nice to visit with this family. They had already taken a look in the area we were headed to so we played around with the numbers a little and headed off to look elsewhere. This didn’t produce any results so we went back to the original area we had intended to look in and I found the cache after a brief search. I excitedly opened the log book to see if anyone had been there before me, and YES! I was First to Find! BOJ signed the log right after I did and he hid it back to be soon found by the other family. This was a fun and challenging cache Huck, Thanks for all the entertainment this cache provided, and Congratulations to BrianofJava for surpassing Wobblestock in total cache finds! –Paleoman52-

I found it! 13 Jul 2007    Mystery Mountain Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

This was our 3rd J-Dog and Mama cass find this morning. We were working on "Clyde and Flora's cache when we decided to locate this one. This is quite a hill! I spotted this one first and then Bo had his nose right on it. Killerb also made the find right away. I loved the view from this location and I can't imagine what it must have been like for you to have grown up around here and had all this beautiful property to explore. We met the new landowner who was busy working on restoring the barn and we enjoyed our chat with him before we headed off to find the caches on his property. Thanks for another fun caching adventure. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 13 Jul 2007    Clyde and Flora's Cache  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

Killerb's log pretty well sums up my experience at this cache. It was amazing to think that Bo played such a valuable roll in helping KB and I complete this cache. I just hope that KB gives Bo an extra cookie or two for all his efforts this morning. This dog is definitely KB's secret weapon when it comes to caching. Now back to the adventure. It is true that I had my hand on the cache leg and didn't even realize it, and then I couldn't exactly remember where I had placed my hand. KB really enjoyed watching me fail miserably at this first leg and without his help and my glasses I would be recording a big fat DNF here instead of a smiley face. Now the second leg search is something I will remember for all my caching days. KB and I put a huge effort into trying to find this one and both of our GPS's took us to different places with the same set of coordinates punched into them. It was during this search that Bo was right next to me with something really cool in his mouth so I proceeded to take it from him, and he didn't want to give it up very bad. I showed this to KB and then I found the coordinates after KB told me to look it over really good. We were thrilled to have gotten these coordinates but at the same time confused as to where this leg originally was placed, so we made a guess and positioned it where it was safe. Jen you may have to check on this spot and let us know where you originally had it. Now it was off to the final. We found the location right away and Bo and I spotted where it was but couldn't figure out how to get at it. KB and I worked furiously at retrieving this until it finally came loose and we had it in our hands. During the retrieval process I ended up loosing my GPS and had to look for that after finding the cache. I put the cache in a place that it was not in originally because we were not able to get it back to where you had it, Sorry there was an equipment failure. This was a memorable adventure doing this cache and a fitting end to a great morning of J-Dog and Mama Cass cache hides. Thanks ladies for all the great fun that KB, Bo, and I had today. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 13 Jul 2007    Fall Off the Map  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Today I was caching with Killerb and we visited this cache first thing this morning to take care of some unfinished business from the past. The woods were cool, calm, and serene when we entered them and we made our way to the first waypoint right away. We already knew where this was so we entered the coordinates for the second leg and and headed out to see if we could finally find that elusive leg. We probably didn't look 5 minutes before I spotted it and then Killerb saw it right away too. Now we could finally go for the final and after a short walk we were in the final area. This took a little longer but I caught it at the right angle and told KB I had it. He and Bo wandered over and Bo made the find next followed by KB. Bo was right on today and had his nose on more than one cache. Actually Bo found a leg at another cache that no matter how hard we looked we couldn't find it, but he did, and that is another story. J-Dog and Mama cass this was a fun multi to do and very well laid out. Thanks for the great start to our caching day. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 13 Jul 2007    The Big Ditch  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 4 )

Killerb and I had planned on doing this cache last of 4 this morning but as I neared this spot I just couldn't pass by without at least stopping and trying. I was a bit concerned about this cache seeing that it was a 4-4. We entered the Big ditch and I was looking in one likely area when out of the depths of the forest I heard the words, "Huckle Buckle" and KB had spotted the first leg. It took me a while but I eventually located this one too. Then it was off to the final. I guess I would have to give most of the credit for the find on this one to KB, although both of us were convinced it was hidden were we found it. This was a fun one to retrieve and I was very impressed with the ingenous hide that this final was. Finally we got our hands on the cache and both signed the logbook. I traded a dollar bill for the Yurtles button,(they have the coolest buttons). This cache was a special find for me because it marked my 500th find since I have started geocaching a little over a year ago. Thanks J-Dog and Mama Cass this was a great challenge. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 09 Jul 2007    Ants In My Cache!  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Huck, I know where that Brogan guy is, he was doing your cache this morning and getting a first to find to boot. I arrived at this cache at about 8:30am and I really wasn't expecting a FTF that late in the morning but I wanted to check out any new cache that had bugs in it. So after a quick search I located the well hidden little container and as I opened it I was greeted by a huge ant. Once I got past this monster I grabbed the log book to see the name Brogan at the top of the page. I was a little surprised because I thought that he was in caching retirement or something. So I signed below his name and I didn't remove the ant, I think that he has a good home in there. I like the huge coin keychain but I ended up leaving everything in there. Thanks for the new cache Huck and for showing me another nice little quiet spot to check out. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 30 Jun 2007    A Geocachical Oddity  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I can finally get this one off my DNF list. I tried this last year and felt a little nervous hanging around the confluence point, so I gave up at that time. Today I was coming down this road from the opposite direction and I remembered reading others logs about finding a spot that looked like a good place to hide a cache. So with this thought in mind I kept my eye out for a good hiding place as I approached the first leg. Sure enough I spotted a perfect place to hide a cache and stopped my truck to check it out. I couldn't believe I had found it. I signed the log and put the cache back into its hiding place. I did check out the confluence point again on my way by. Very cool location! Thanks for the interesting and educational cache. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 28 Jun 2007    Beauty and Dispair  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Mrs. Paleoman and I decided to do a little caching today so I thought I would revisit this cache and find it in its new location. Sandy had never seen the Shaker colony before so we did the whole cache again from start to finish. Wow! you really moved that final loction! I was able to find this after a quick search and I have to say that you really know how to hide a cache and make it blend in with its surroundings. I signd the logbook and left a couple of coupons for Geritol for you, I don't need these yet and after reading about your adventures with Bluestone when you did my Headwaters cache it sounded like you could have used a little extra dose of Geritol after you returned to the Bo-mobile. I recognised that final area from doing another cache a little over a year ago that wasn't too far from here. I'm glad to see that you are keeping this classic cache going. After all this is your first hide isn't it? I enjoyed sharing this one with Sandy, Thanks for the fun and I know that you are probably mad at me for not stopping by when I was in your area, but I had caches to find and not much time to spare. I'll be seeing you soon. -Paleoman52-

Note 15 Jun 2007    FawCow'ee Challenge  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 4.5 )

RoadKill, don't pay any attention to the gibberish that Killerb writes about this experience he still had sour grapes in his mouth after I huckled him on 4 out of 6 caches we visited that day. As far as the Bear experience that he will weave a tale of falsehoods about, all I can say is when I saw the Bear my Paleoman survival instincts kicked in and the said to me that hanging around a bear in the woods with cubs is not a good idea so get out of there before you end up as bear poop. I would also like to add that our direction of travel while hiking to this cache was at all times up for grabs and anyone of us could have led the way. I chose to take the most direct route, which wasn't as bad as the "Geritol junkie" said it was. If you want to hear the "Real" story of how this whole adventure went, Bluestone and I would be more than glad to tell it to you. Thanks again for all the fun we had with this cache and for sharing another unique and out of the way place with us. -Paleoman-

I found it! 12 Jun 2007    FawCow'ee Challenge  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 4.5 )

Now this is what I'm talking about! This was a fabulous caching adventure and it was made even more fun by going on this adventure with Bluestone, Butterflyguy, and Killerb. Once we found the parking spot and carefully followed the directions about not using anyones driveways, we found the trail by the road and began our walk down to the creek. On the way we discovered one of the most ingeniously designed mountain climbing vehicles made from the remains of an old Ford modelA. We spent quite a little time checking this out and then it was on to the creek. The water was low so boots were not needed for this part. We arrived at the first waypoint and decided to bushwhack our way until we found a trail or road to follow, (which never really happened until we were almost at the cache site). Once there we wondered if the cache still existed since it has been almost 4 years since this was last visited. After a quick search I huckled the group and then sat back and enjoyed watching the others try to locate the cache. Finally after the last cacher made the find, I opened the container to find a very well preserved cache. Everything looked as good as new. (These ammo are amazing). This was such a beautiful place to rest and take in the scenery and we spent quite a while doing just that. Thanks so much Roadkill for keeping this cache in play and for finding these unique and far removed places. This is a caching adventure I will always remember. -Paleoman-

I found it! 11 Jun 2007    Indian Miracle Spring  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 4 )

Our caching team of Bluestone, Killerb, Butterflyguy, and myself came here to find this cache after completing FawCow'ee Challenge by Roadkill just up the road. When we arrived along the road we noticed a fellow parked just below were we parked and then we made our way to the cache. This was a nice bushwhack to this historic site and Butterflyguy made the quick find. We all signed the logbook and hid this back to the way we found it. Finally we arrived back at the road and the fellow was still there and was walking in our direction. As he got closer he asked if we found it and we all replied that we had, and come to find out this was the owner of the cache. We enjoyed our visit with him and he told us of a beautiful waterfall that was just down the road so we all agreed that we wanted to see that too. After finding the trail down to the water fall we were all amazed at the beauty of this area and then the fun began and this is where I began to wonder if Killerb had a death wish or something. You see what happened next was a first for many of us. The cache owners dog began barking furiously a little ways off from where we were standing and I jokingly said said, yeh! , you scare that bear away! and guess what?, he was barking at a bear and the bear was running in our direction, I made tracks as fast as I could in the opposite direction and as well as many of our group did, but Killerb went in the direction of the bear trying to get some good photos, (This is insane!) Anyway we found out why the bear was coming back and that was because she was a momma bear and had 2 cubs up a tree that the dog was standing next to. Finally the dog left and the cubs came down the tree and momma bear and the cubs headed out. Phew! I was glad to finally get back in my truck and head out of there. This was a wonderful memorable experience and Thank you so much bakwoods for the nice cache and for showing us outsiders around. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 10 Jun 2007    P-man's Super Sweet Bug Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

This morning when I awoke I had one thing on my mind, (other than to get into the bathroom before Scottishgal610 does), and that was to make the trip to find the cache that was dedicated to me. I waited until Mrs. Paleoman and Scottishgal610 woke up and suggested taking a ride to find the cache and then have breakfast at Earl's. This idea was received with much enthusiasm and seeing that today was Scottishgal's Birthday it seemed like a fun way to celebrate it. The morning couldn't have been more perfect and before we knew it, we arrived on the scene of the cache. After making a trip into the area that the cache wasn't hidden in, I followed Scottishgal as she lead the way to the cache. Along the road I saw some strange scibblings in the dirt, which read -P-Man-, so I knew we must be close. Then scottishgal made the find and signed the logbook. She then handed it to me and I checked out the stash and decide to leave one of my earlier arrowheads I had made for the next finder. I totally love the location for this cache, great job Huck. Thanks for the honor of naming this on my behalf and thanks for the perfect start to a great day. Now it was off to Earl's and that is a whole other story better left for another time. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 26 Apr 2007    The Hairy Women of Klipnocky  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I found my way back to this far removed area. I didn't see any "Hairy Women" and I really didn't want to see any, so I was not too disappointed. I've been wanting to get over here since this was published and today I decided to drive a few back roads. I traded a toy car for a key holder. Thanks for the cache Huck. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Apr 2007    Mendon Ponds #2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I found this one right after finding Mendon Ponds 1 and Bathing with the Devil. I was surprised by a very friendly deer as I made my way to the cache, I was able to get within 10 feet of her and we both just stood there looking at each other wondering what each other was thinking. I found the cache very well hidden and I traded one of my bottle opener keychains for a wine stopper. Thanks for the cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Apr 2007    Bathing with the Devil Earthcache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

I found this cache on my way to the Mendon ponds cache. I will submit my photo as soon as my wife downloads it from her camera. This is such a neat area. I spent some extra here taking in the sites. Thanks! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Apr 2007    Mendon Ponds Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I found it! 23 Apr 2007    Cacher's Cache Can  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I found this one after making the find at the Keychain cache. I enjoyed the walk to this location and I was able to find the cache right away because it was fully exposed. Must have been the work of some industrious rodents. I didn't make any trades and I signed the logbook. Thanks for the cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 20 Apr 2007    Guess Who-Oak Openings  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

I've been wanting to do this one for quite awhile and today i was in the area so I thought I would go for it. This was my last of 16 finds I made today. The opening was really cool I need to read more about this. Thanks for the cache, I didn't make any trades and signed the log. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 11 Apr 2007    Second time's a charm??  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I wasn't too sure where to park as I approached the area for this one seeing that I'm not familiar with the area, so I parked along the road and realized soon that there was a better access to this one. Anyway I was surprised to see the ammo box just sitting out in the open and not hidden in any way. I was also shocked that it appeared not to have been muggled so after signing the logbook I made sure that it was hidden a little better before I left. Thanks for showing me a little hidden place off the beaten path near this village. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Mar 2007    Highpoint  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

This was a really nice walk in the woods. The only problem I encountered was lots of snow in places still in the forest. I bushwhacked most of the way to this one and found it after a quick search. The coords were good and the cache is in great shape. It is so fun to do older caches such as this one is. I traded a dollar bill for a little lizard. Thanks for the great cache in such a scenic place. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 01 Mar 2007    Frogs, Lizards, Flies, and Beetles.  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Huck, Thanks for bringing me to this spot! I had always wondered just where it was that Dr. Sievers was laid to rest because he was the famous author who interviewed Mary Jemison (white women captive) just a mile and a half from my house at a place called Whaley's Tavern just outside of Castile. I have read his book a couple of times and Letchworth Park, 3 miles from my house is the final resting place of Mary Jemison.
I was in the area today doing Skeeterbait2's new cache and I thought I would grab this on my way back to work. I love old cemetaries and the cache hide was good. I signed the log and grabbed a little lizard to accompany me in my truck. Thanks again! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 27 Jan 2007    Over Hill, Over Dale...  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

I found this nice hide right after locating the Christmacahe. This was a perfect day to hike to this one. It looked like someone else was ahead of me earlier in the day on snowshoes but they didn't go all the way to this cache. This was a very good hide and everything was in good shape. I cammoed the cache a little better than I found it. I didn't take or leave anything and I signed the log. The view from this location is spectacular. I plan on making a return trip in the spring to see the area once everything starts growing again. Thanks for the good walk to this one, I was really needing to get out of the house and get over my cabin fever. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 07 Jan 2007    Klipnocky State Forest Geocache  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 3 )

I've been wanting to do this cache for quite some time, due to how much I really like previous Rocky caches I've done. I wanted to make sure that deer season was over and that the woods would be empty of hunters. Today was another beautiful warm, sunny day, and there was still no snow on the ground so it looked like the perfect opportunity to go after this one. I noticed that it had been quite a while since the last visit was made and couldn't understand why. So off I went into parts unknown to me and before long was was arriving at a place to park and to start my journey. My first obstacle to overcome was to get across the creek, this was no easy task because we've had so much rain lately and the creek was really swollen. I finally found a log I could walk across and once on the other side I realized that I had quite a hill to climb ahead of me. This was an endless, slippery climb, but once I was finally at the top I was rewarded with a beautiful view of the forest. I was getting a little concerned as I started in the direction my GPS was taking me because there had been a lot of logging going on in here and I was hoping that the tree that hid the cache would not be cut down. I checked a tree and there was no cache, so I let my GPS settle and it steered me about 25 feet away and this tree did have the cache hiding in it. It was partially exposed but in really good shape. I was thrilled that it was there! I opened the can immediately and couldn't believe how stuffed full the cache was. I traded a blue bandanna for a belt buckle and then signed the log book. I stashed the can back to its hiding place and then cammoed it really good. The next finder will have a little more challenge to find this than I did. Rocky, this was another great caching adventure you took me on and I thank you for it. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 04 Jan 2007    I Heard it on the Grapevine  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

It was such a beautiful, warm, sunny day for this time of year. I wanted to get back here and try to finish up the caches I didn't do a few days ago so this one was first on my list. I arrived at the park about 11:30am and I could tell that other people were enjoying the park by the numerous vehicles parked near the lodge. I pretty well knew where I had to go so once I was within about 400ft, I found the best deer trail I could locate that was heading off in the direction I wanted to go, and bushwhacked my way to the cache area. I found the cache immediately and signed the log book. This was a really nice spot and I took my time here and explored the area on my way out. I took nothing and left nothing in the cache. Thanks for the nice cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 30 Dec 2006    Deer Crossing  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

This was one of the best hides in the park. It took me a couple of minutes to locate this one due to snow cover on the ground. I took nothing from the cache box and I signed the logbook. Thanks for the nice cache! This area is so interesting and I enjoyed exploring it. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 30 Dec 2006    Ripple  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

This was a fun and easy multi to do. My wife and I spent the morning caching at the park and we both agreed that we liked this one alot. The architecture near the creek was really cool and I was surprised at how much water was flowing today. I found the cache a little exposed so I made sure that I hid it well after I signed the logbook. I didn't take or leave anything but plan on making a return trip here in the spring. Thanks for the cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 30 Dec 2006    Gypsum Mine II  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

My wife and I decided to search for a few caches in this Park today because it was a place neither of us had been before. This was our first of 6 finds we were to make. The weather was fine when we arrived but before we left the park 3 1/2 hours later about an inch of snow had fallen. We located the cache right away and I was so surprised to find a deer antler in there that I had put in another cache back in May of this year, so I reclaimed it for a future cache. In trade I left a couple of carabineers. I also found a POW*MIA coin in the cache box. This coin wasn't listed so I will try to get it registered. Thanks for for a great caching experience in a beautiful well maintained park. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Dec 2006    Trout Fishing (without the Trout)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I had a good time finding this cache today with Killerb and Bo. It was a little muddy walking along the farm path because of recent logging activity, so we decided to walk across the field on the way back. This was a very tranquil place back by the creek. We all looked around for a while before I finally spotted this one, Good Hide! There is a lot of logging going on which makes this a little more challenging for getting around in that area. The cache was full of TBs and geocoins so I decided to grab a couple to move along. I left nothing because the cache was quite full. Thanks for showing us such a nice place on the farm. And many "Thanks" to Fred Sahrle for allowing caches to be placed on his land. Happy holidays to you and your family. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Dec 2006    Matchbox Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

I had the pleasure today to be caching with Killerb and Bo. After our miserable failure trying to locate the second leg of "Fall off the Map" we thought that maybe we could come up with this one. This was a well put together multi and very fun to do. That second leg was quite a first for us and very clever. I couldn't believe how stuffed the cache was with matchbox cars. I didn't have any to trade so I left nothing. Thanks for the fun multi, it was what we needed after being stumped on your previous cache. A really good cache for families to do! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 21 Dec 2006    Emery's Escape  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

This was my first of four caches I located today in Emery Park. That was a clever third micro, and the first of its kind I have found. I enjoyed the whole layout of this cache and when I got to the final I looked around for a while before I was able to come up with this one. Nice hide! I took a small pin and I left a travel bug. Thanks for the fun cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 21 Dec 2006    Emery Easy Out  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

A very nice multicache. I enjoyed the way this one was put together. I took a small deck of cards and I left a couple of carabineers. Thanks for the cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 18 Dec 2006    Peacefull Woods  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

This was a fun and challenging multi. Both parts were very well hid. I did this one with Family Finders, and it took both of us a good effort to locate the micro and then the final. I took nothing from the cache and I signed the log. Thanks for the fun and well layed out cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 09 Dec 2006    Patch's cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I really had fun figuring this cache out today. I had just completed the Civil War Memories cache in Geneseo and I thought I would try to find this one while I was in the area. The first leg had me going in circles for a while until I finally found it, very clever! Then it was off to the final and once again another very clever and well thought out hide. For a first hide I have to compliment you on a great start at hiding caches, this was not only fun but challenging. I also loved the location of this cache, these are my favorite places to visit and this place was very interesting. I didn't have any patches with me so I didn't take or leave anything in the cache. If I do get an interesting patch or two I will be sure to drop them off here and let you know that they are in the cache. I signed the log and took time to put this back the way I think you intended it to be. Great job! Once Killerb gets back here from Florida in a few days, he and I will try some of your other caches near Dansville. Thanks -Paleoman52-

I found it! 10 Nov 2006    Along the Roots of Big Bend  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

I wanted to wait and log this one in as my 200th find. This has to be one of the best caches that this my home area has ever seen. I was fortunate to be able to do this one with Cracker. We spent the better part of an afternoon finding all five legs to this cache. Each leg was special and different from the others and the "views"! How does anyone describe such breathtaking scenery? I have lived my whole life next to Letchworth State park and I have never seen scenery better than the scenery I was exposed to on this caching experience. If I had done only one cache in my life I would have wanted it to be this one. The beaver dams are endless and the evidence of their work is very prevelant in some areas that we visited. Cracker thank you for the best caching experience a person could ask for, I will remember this one as long as I live. Great Cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 10 Nov 2006    Welcome to Strykersville  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

My first find of 15 that I found today. After reading the logs I figured out where to park not to draw too much attention to myself. I found it right away and quickly signed the log. Thanks for the micro! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 06 Nov 2006    Along Oatka Trail  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I really enjoyed the short hike back to this hide. The creek was really moving along pretty fast today. Nice hide in a great location. The only thing that spoiled this experience was some really loud gunshots coming from the other side of the creek. Apparantly some guys were sighting in their rifles at a shooting range over there. Once I located the cache I signed the log and left a "where's George" dollar and a gold colored bottle opener. Thanks for the nice cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 01 Nov 2006    MOTHER OF ROCKY  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

This is one of my favorite things to do, Find a Rocky Cache in a removed, beautiful area. This was a classic example of why I like doing your caches Rocky. I went to work today and caching really wasn't on my mind when I got there. Things changed quickly once the sun came up and the day was turning out to be a beautiful early November day. The weather was cool, calm, and sunny. Another plus was that it was the middle of the week and usually not too many muggles are around where you decide to locate a cache. I asked my boss about getting the rest of the day off and he said he already knew that I would be asking because I was scanning the cache pages and printing out some cache sheets. I left work and made it to the cache parking location by noon. I was surprised when I arrived at the parking area to find another vehicle parked there. It turned out to be a DEC vehicle so I wasn't concerned that another cacher was ahead of me. Off in the distance I could hear a chainsaw running but that seemed to be off in another direction. Now the fun begins, I started my hike down through the woods and as I traveled down I saw many little ravines and I wasn't sure if I should cross them or stay on the path I was on. I eventually arrived at the creek and it was flowing nicely due to all the rain we've had lately. I was thinking to myself at this point that this is such a typical place for a good Rocky hide and I was not to be disappointed. This is why I really like Rocky caches, you see a removed area and are treated to a nice hike through an area that you probably would have never been to if not for seeking a cache. The coordinates took me right to the cache and I have to admit that this was a nice hide, it blended in really well with the surroundings. I anxiously opened the cache and retrieved a wooden coin and a lottery ticket that I decided to scratch off once I returned to my truck. In trade I left a nice Bandanna and I signed the logbook. I took my time hiking back to my truck and enjoyed the forest on this late fall day. Once back to the truck I decided to check and see if this was a lucky lottery ticket. I scratched off the top row and was quite surprised when 3 $10,000 amounts appeared, I knew that this was to good to be true so I turned over the card and realized that I was duped! Good One, you got me. I really wasn't a loser though because this caching experience was worth more than the imaginary prize on the lottery ticket, if I had won I would have spent the money and it would be all gone, but by doing this cache I have something that can't be spent or taken away, I have memories of a wonderful walk to a beautiful area on a perfect fall day. Thanks for everything Rocky, and before I forget it was truly a pleasure meeting you in person at the Friday the 13th gathering. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 18 Oct 2006    SNAKES...IN A CACHE!  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I was in the area this morning chasing after the Tree-mendous series and had to stop and check this one out. Snakes are definitely an interesting cache theme. I wouldn't be surprised if there were some live snakes in that cache area, Haha. I found this after a quick search, Thanks, I took a snake and left a small frizbee in trade. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 14 Oct 2006    Letchworth Fall Gathering V  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

So many thanks go to Blackwatch Clan GammaKitt for a wonderful event. It was so nice to see so many cachers all in one place. I will definitely be sure to make it to this event again next year. I dropped off a travel bug here to go to Germany. Thanks Again, -Paleoman52-

I found it! 10 Oct 2006    Sea Life  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

I was on my way to Arcade and thought I would give this one a try. I was succesful after about a 10 minute search and I signed the log book. I took a crayfish to ride around in my truck with me. Nice hide and thanks for placing the cache! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 10 Oct 2006    Stony Brook State Park Geocache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 3 )

This was my first find of the day, and it was in a really neat location. I enjoyed the hike up to this one with my wife Sandy and a foreign exchange student (Pete) from Thailand. i spotted it right away and then i made Pete find it. It was his first ever find. The .7 mile hike was so enjoyable, we saw all the waterfalls and enjoyed the canyon so much. I took a money clip and left a Bandanna in exchange. I also left Timothy Tuatara the TB from New Zealand. After we left here we ran into 2 other cachers from around the Jamestown area. This is a really beautiful park. Thanks Rocky for putting a cache here and getting all of us to come here and enjoy this beautiful place. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 07 Oct 2006    The LCS Geocache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

I really enjoyed the walk up the hill in the woods. That is such an old forest and those huge Maples are awesome. I located the cache right away once I found my way to the hiding spot and I signed the log. I didn't take or leave anything. My only problem I had was my timing was off a little and I got caught right in the middle of the LCS Homecoming parade, so I pulled off to the side of the road and I enjoyed the parade. I was happy to see such good community spirit as the whole village seemed to turn out to watch this parade, and the kids were having a great time. Oh to be that young again! Thanks for the great experience! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 25 Sept 2006    GPS-O (Letchworth State Park)  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 4.5 )

I live close by and I have been wanting to try this for awhile. So today was a cool sunny day, just perfect for hiking in Letchworth park. I went to work until 10:00am and asked my boss if I could get the rest of the day off and he said "no problem have a good time". He knew what I was up to and that I had caching on my mind, so it was better to let me go instead of moping around at work all day. I arrived at Letchworth in about 15 minutes and I decided to try and get as many of these waypoints as I could. I was successful in locating 22 of the 24 waypoints. I would have got them all but I blew out my knee and could barely make it back to my truck. Man it is tough getting older! Now for the waypoints I found. I located Control #17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38. I will email you the numbers with the corresponding letters. I really enjoyed this experience and I already knew where most of these were as I do a lot of hiking in Letchworth and crosscountry skiing every winter. Thanks for the fun day. -Paleoman52-

I made it back to the Park on 9/27/06 and I was able to locate Control #39, and #40. I have now found them all. No problem today with the bad knee, it was a beautiful day for hiking. I saw lots of Deer, and the leaves are really starting to change into their Fall colors.I used my GPS for locating all these waypoints.

I found it! 23 Sept 2006    ISLAND OASIS TOUR  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Szuchie and I stopped here on our way home from caching near Rochester. This is a beautiful little island and everything is so well cared for. I enjoyed reading all the information here. We successfully located the cache, nice job, and Thanks! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 17 Sept 2006    The Sullivan Clinton Trail  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

OK Bruce, I decided to give this one another try and this time I brought some secret weapons along to help locate the 3rd leg. Szuchie and Chickey decided to try this one with me and I am proud to say that this was a successful team effort. After arriving at the location of the second leg, we went right to work trying to find the clue to the 3rd leg. It was Szuchie who made the find and elation was felt by all. Off to the 3rd leg, this was a nice enjoyable stroll and Chickey and I discovered the clue at this location. Very clever and very KB like. Now with the coordinates for the final hide we scurried off to make this one official and to get this darn thing off my DNF list. The GPS led us to an area we were certain contained the final and Szuchie went in one way and I went in another, it wasn't long before I spotted it and Szuchie was on the verge also of making the find. Joy was shared by all of us at completing this cache and even more we enjoyed the wonderful walk back to our vehicles. As we signed the log book Szuchie found a pin in the logbook bag that had a picture of KillerB on it so he claimed that as a good luck piece that will help him finish all the KillerB caches. I took nothing from the box but I did take back some precious memories of an extraordinary place. Thank you so much Bruce for providing these wonderful caches and showing all of us some of the most spectacular scenery western New York State has to offer. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 17 Sept 2006    SAND POINT GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Rocky, This has to be one of the most beautiful places on the lake. After finding this one and signing the log book, Szuchie, Chicky and I just hung out for a while taking in the scenery. Thanks for showing me this place I really enjoyed it, nice little cache hide too. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 05 Sept 2006    Treestump  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

Great cache! I had a little extra time during my lunch hour so I shot over to find this cache and to see if I could possibly be the honored FTF. I found the parking spot and then entered the cache coordinates. I spotted the way in to the forest right away. Once my GPS said that I had arrived, I didn't see what I thought I would be looking for, so I expanded my search and there it was, in a place that I wouldn't have expected it to be. Nice hide! You had me going in circles for a little while. Anyway I opened the cache and found the log book and I slowly opened it to see who had beaten me to it, Yes! nobody had beaten me too it so I got to claim FTF on this cache, Awesome! HB Thanks for the fun cache to find, it was a good time and when you get the chance and you are in Castile be sure to do my caches! I left the dog tag travel bug in there to move it along. -Paleoman-

I found it! 03 Aug 2006    Old Cattaraugus (Used To Be A) Micro  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

I made a detour on my way home from work today (about 20 miles) to check out this spot. It sounded interesting so after looking at the map and punching in the coordinates I made my way down to Genesee Rd. Naturally I went in the wrong way and had to turn around and find where the road was located on the other side of the creek. Once there, my GPS pointed me right to the well concealed hide and I signed the log and then placed the micro back. I added a little extra cammo just to make it more challenging for the next cacher. This is really a beautiful spot and looks like a great place to cast a line or two. Thanks for getting me here. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 03 Aug 2006    The Gray Fox  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I figured out the coordinates for this one while I was at work on my lunch hour. This was a fun cache to do and I wasn't positive that I got one of the numbers correct so I had a back up set of coordinates figured out in case I was getting no where with the ones I entered in the GPS. I headed to Arcade after work and first I pulled into a lot on the wrong side, seeing my error I drove to the right lot and made quick work of this one. Nice hide and very inconspicuous. I had no muggles to contend with as everyone had left work and the lot was almost empty. I understand that the world famous, often imitated, but never duplicated Szuchie lives nearby but I didn't see him and I wasn't sure which house was his. I was hoping to surprise him with a Paleoman52 in person visit but I guess that this will have to wait for another time. Thanks for the fun hide -Paleoman52-

I found it! 30 Jul 2006    PollyWogg Holler  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

I took my wife here today with me because we wanted to take a Sunday drive and I said "Let's go see Pollywogg Holler". So off we went for a nice Sunday afternoon drive. This wasn't hard to find and as we got closer I was amazed at how many cars were parked along the road. This is such a removed area and you don't see much for a couple of miles and then there are all these cars. I parked a ways past the little parking lot and picked up a trail that went off to the left, this one seemed to take me away from the cache so I told Sandy that we should back track and take a trail we saw as we entered the area. Off in the distance we could hear music and really good music at that. Rounding a bend in the woods we ran onto a fellow doing something of which we were not sure of , (Maybe relieving himself), and when we approached he greeted us and we asked about the music. I was surprised to find out that practically every Sunday afternoon, music is performed and for a small cover fee you could eat some pizza and have some pop and listen to the music. This place is Killer!, I definitely will be back sometime in the Fall to take in more of this place and experience a Sunday afternoon, Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I, or should I say my wife, located the cache and I TNLN and signed the log. Thanks Brogan, once again you have led me to another interesting and beautiful place here in Western new York State. - Paleoman52-

I found it! 26 Jul 2006    Bullhead Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Scottishgal610 and I decided to see what this cache was all about, and I am so glad we did. This has to be one of the best kept secrets in all of Western new York State. I totally loved the hike down to the bog and the woods were very old and primitive looking. This is a place where you really want to spend more time after you have located the cache. I am sure that I will return to this place again someday. Thanks for the nice hide. I TNLN and signed the logbook. - Paleoman52-

I found it! 24 Jul 2006    Darien Diversion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I was out caching with Killerb today and we thought we would do a couple of caches in this area. This Park is absolutely beautiful and I was surprised how many campers were enjoying it for a Monday. We had a very nice walk to the cache hide. It was partially exposed so after signing the log and making a couple of trades, we hid the container a little better to make it more challenging for the next cacher. Nice hide spot and Thanks for the fun. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 04 Jul 2006    SONYEA STATE FOREST GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3.5 )

This cache has a reputation for being a milestone for many cachers and for me it was my 75th find (Yeah!) I have been thinking about doing this one for quite sometime and even laid in bed at night and pondered about it. After reading all the logs I wasn't sure if I was up for the challenge or not but I just had to try. It was a perfect day to go for this one, seeing that it was the 4th of July and I was home from work. I finally mustered the courage to just go for it and off I went into parts unknown to me. Actually though I was in this area a couple times before, when I went after "Brought Back to life and "In a Pigs Eye", So I kind of knew a little about what I was in for. I decided not to take the shortest route in because after reading the logs this didn't appear to be the best way in and so I ended up making a 0.6 mile bushwacking trip through the forest. This really wasn't so bad and the GPS seemed to count down quickly, then I came to a point where I had to make a decision and it was either to stay up on high ground or walk the creek bed, I chose the creek and when My GPS said I had only about 49 feet to go I stood there looking at a cliff face and realized that I either had to try to climb this shale wall or find a better and easier way up, so down the creek I journeyed until I found an area where I could scale the wall a little easier and up, up up, I went. Once on top I was fascinated with the beautiful view and I noticed that I didn't have far to go to get to the cache. This was a really good hide and after a brief search I stumbled upon the cache. It was camoed really well and if you weren't looking for a cache you never would have found this spot. Rocky, you are the Man! Thanks for a fun adventure into this forest. I took nothing from the cache but I left one of my hand knapped flint blades in the cache as a reward to the next brave soul to make this journey. I signed the log and hid the cache really well. Fortunately I entered my start coordinates before I entered the woods or I would probably still be in there walking in circles trying to find my way out. Thanks for # 75, it was a memorable one! -Paleoman52-

I found it! 29 Jun 2006    Beauty and Dispair  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

This was my last stop today and I must say it was the best stop. I am always thrilled to learn any local history I can find and this was no exception. So much is preserved here and worth the time to take a look around. The coordinates for the final hide were right on and it took me only about 5 minutes to locate the cache once I made the math adjustments that you gave. Really nice hide, I hope that you keep this one going as I am sure that many people will enjoy this one. Thanks for bringing me to this place. I took the lighter and I left a nice polished piece of Flintridge flint and a glass bead. -Paleoman52-

I found it! 23 Jun 2006    Beaver Dam  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

I had a few minutes to spare and this was a place I had wanted to visit for quite some time. Once again I was taken to a road I had never traveled before. It was good that I had a truck because the road was a little rough at times but any vehicle could travel it if they take their time. Once I arrived on site I was totally amazed at the beaver pond, this thing is huge! Found the cache after about a 5 minute search. I took nothing but left a nice polished piece of flintridge stone. I signed the log and concealed the cache really good. Thanks for the nice hide. - Paleoman52

I found it! 12 Jun 2006    DRIVING PARK GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I decided to give this one another try after a quick unsuccessful try about a week ago. It wasn't as hard to find this time though because the weeds had been knocked down and the path kind of led me to the cache. TNLN and signed the log. - Paleoman52

I found it! 11 Jun 2006    Beaver Meadow  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I took my family along to find this one. We really enjoyed the forest, it was so old and open and the cache was easy for us all to find. We let my wife locate this cache after we found the suspected location. Thanks for the nice hide - Paleoman52

I found it! 11 Jun 2006    Beaver Meadows #2  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

After my family and I found Beaver Meadows one we walked across the road and picked up the trail to find this one. It was a really enjoyable walk and I wish I hadn't decoded the clue because it really made it much easier. It certainly is beautiful back there and I plan on returning to take the trail for the whole length sometime. Thanks - Paleoman52

I found it! 08 Jun 2006    PAPER MILL PARK GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

One more beautiful location that I didn't know existed. Nice little park. signed log book - Paleoman52

I found it! 28 May 2006    The Old Dirt Road  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

Nice walk this morning my only concern was that I saw a lot of poison ivy along the pathway, tried to avoid it and found the cache after a brief search. Nice area, Thanks for the fun!

I found it! 26 May 2006    Wyoming County Forest #1  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

I enjoyed this long hike back to the cache, it was a rainy overcast morning and I had to get a cache or two today. This hide was a first for me and very ingenious. Took the flashlight and left a really nice aqua colored antique bottle. Signed the log and put cache container back to its original position. Great fun - Paleoman52

I found it! 24 May 2006    Brought back to life  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

Scottishgal610 and I found this one together after a long hike through the woods. It was such a beautiful place in the woods were we recovered the cache. We rested awhile at the cache site to take in our surroundings before making the long hike back out to my truck. I took the Honey soap and left a really nice aqua colored antique bottle. We both signed the log. The camera needs replacing as it is used up. - Paleoman52

I found it! 22 May 2006    Along The Finger Lakes Trail  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3.5 )

This was a really nice walk but beware for the first half of the walk there was a lot of poison ivy growing along the path. If you keep on the path, you shouldn't make contact with this itchy plant. Nice hide, it took me a few minutes to find the cache. Left a Deer antler and took a ruler. - Paleoman52

I found it! 18 May 2006    Silver Lake Rail Road Trail  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I was on my way home for lunch and I thought I would give this one a try. I read that my friend ecody had found this the day before so I couldn't let him one up me. As I arrived there was a light rain in the air so I made a beeline to the coordinates. Found it in less than 5 minutes and was glad I did as the rain was beginning to pick up a bit. I took the lighter and left a dollar because the cache is pretty full and there was not much room in it for what I had in my backpack.I logged in my visit and made tracks for my truck. Very nice hide and lots of fun searching for this one. - Paleoman52

I found it! 17 May 2006    Dishmill Creek Micro  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

I took my wife along for her first time to look for a geocache. This was a beautiful walk and I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a challenging hike. Located the cache right away and I signed the log, also I removed the geo coin that I found in the cache. I took nothing else but left one of my hand chipped arrowheads that I made out of Onondaga chert. This piece is a beauty and a good reward for the next finder. This was a good hide and I was lucky that I found it as quickly as I did. - Paleoman52

I found it! 14 May 2006    Brogan's Topo Lesson  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

As I write this not I am still breathing hard and sweating. This was one that truly made me work for it, but it was worth it. I have always loved a challenge and this has taken challenge to a new level. I got to the area and then my GPS went bonkers it said look over here then look over there, no luck so I finally shut it off and did a survey of the area. That didn't produce any results so I resorted to a trick I have come to use quite often. I found and opening in the forest and then just set my GPS on a log and walked away from it for about 5 minutes. I rush up to it and noticed the direction the arrow is pointing, the distance to the target, and the accuracy. This worked just fine and I found the cache in less than 5 minutes. Took the 4 quarters I found to buy a bottle of water once I got out of there and left a small deer antler in the cache. - Paleoman52

I found it! 13 May 2006    1856 Mule Path  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

This is such an interesting area. I took time on the way out to read all the informative signs. The last time I visited this site was I believe around 1982, a lot has changed. I took the watch for fastening to my backpack and also I removed the glass paper weight. I left a deer antler, a few band-aides, and a dollar in exchange. - Paleoman52

I found it! 12 May 2006    End of 18  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

This was lots of fun and the views of the canyon were unsurpassed. It was a long but enjoyable walk, I saw two garter snakes on my way to the cash. I left an old bottle and a deer antler, and took a cell phone case and a miniature hammer. - Paleoman52

I found it! 12 May 2006    HOGS BACK VISTAS  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I have been wanting to take this hike for a while. Nice spot for a cache hide. Took the key ring clip and left a deer antler. Tried to conceal cahe a little better to keep muggles from tampering with it. - Paleoman52

I found it! 12 May 2006    What's the Point  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

I enjoyed the challenge of this cache. When you reach the point were you have to change the coordinates, the view is breathtaking of the canyon. I left the guitar travel bug and retrieved the "I hope I win" travel bug. Took nothing, but left a small Deer antler - Paleoman52

I found it! 11 May 2006    Gibsonville Doublet  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 2.5 )

Road Kill, your parents must have hid your Christmas presents really well when you were a kid, because you must have had some training at hiding caches. This was a place I have never been before in Letchworth Park. I believe I will return to it again someday with family. Thanks for taking me to another beautiful place. I removed the travel bug and I left a nice little deer antler for the next lucky cacher. - Paleoman52

I found it! 11 May 2006    1779 Memorial Tree  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

This has always been a favorite place of mine. It was fun to find a cache hidden here, you have to wonder what other secrets are hidden here in last 300 years. Took the E cable and left a nice little deer antler. - Paleoman52

I found it! 09 May 2006    Verda's Log  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2.5 )

Roadkill, This was a beautiful setting and a very nice walk. It was my third find of the day and I went right to it. I removed the mountain man drinking cup and the susie B. I replaced these items with a nice little deer antler and an old cobalt blue antique bottle. I love finding your caches, lets find some time to do a little chipping, OK? - Paleoman52

I found it! 09 May 2006    West Meets East  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

I located the area but had a tough time figuring out the hide, good job of concealing it Ted. Left a nice little four point deer antler for the next lucky cacher. Paleoman52

This was a challenge and once I figured out the second set of coordinates, it was a challenge to maintain a signal due to heavy tree cover. Good hide and my son was with me when I finally located the cache. This was his first geocache and he claimed the prize. Things were a little damp but not bad. Funny thing about this cash was that I walked within thirty feet of it earlier in the day when my wife and I went for an afternoon walk. - Paleoman52

Nice location for a cache hide. Enjoyed the walk to the location, this is a favorite place of mine to go hiking. Never realized that a cache was nearby. Not a hard find, but as it beginner it was just what I needed to give me confidence. Let a small deer antler in the cache. Paleoman52

Roadkill, I know you! Your cache was an awesome setting. I recommend everyone to find this cache and take in the unique view of Upper Falls. This is one of my favorite areas in Letchworth Park. The cache was well hidden and it was a thrill to find. Seeing that you are a flintknapper, I left a couple of band aides in the cache for you, I have the Geocoin and I plan on moving it to my next cache recovery. let's get together with Tom P. sometime and do a little chipping, OK?
Thanks for the good search i really enjoyed it. Paleoman52
