I found it! 24 Jun 2012    Cross-Trainer  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

Ohhh I love experiments. I hope electrodes and shock collars are part of the plans for this experiment. Never thought I would make it to Navicache again without Urkel dragging me in but here I am.

I found it! 30 Oct 2011    Peak-A-Boo  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Woohoo! What Szuchie said suits me just fine. Great to see that Navicache lives on in Western NY. I had almost forgot my passwords to this site since its been so long since my last visit. Luckily Szuchie had his caching ears up and alerted me to thiss new placement.

Note 12 Jun 2010    P-Mans FLT 2  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

Wait a cotton picking minute! Does this mean you'll be raffling off two custom walking sticks. one for geocaching.com finders and one for navicache loggers?

I like that it doubles our chances but it might be years before ten logs get entered here.

As noted on another site, Szuchie and I were up early this morning and walking this section of the FLT in search of this fine multi. We moved along quickly and had the cache in hand before most other cachers were even beginning to wake up nd signed in at about 6 10 am.

Thanks for placing it.

I found it! 19 Jan 2010    Szuchie's Sense of Serenity...  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

All alone at the end of the of the evening
And Navicache has posted brand new
I was thinking 'bout a cacher who might have
hid one and I never knew
You know I've always been a plager
(spent my life running 'round)
And it's so hard to change
(Can't seem to settle down)
But the micros I've seen lately
Keep on turning out and burning out
And turning out real lame

So put me on a highway
And show me a can
And hide me an ammo one more time
You can spend all your time hiding caches
You can spend all your day logging more
If your cache fell to pieces tomorrow
Would you still drink wine?

And when you're looking for your micro
(Nobody seems to care)
And you can't find leg four
(Can't find it anywhere)
When there's nothing to look under
Still you're coming back, you're running back
for more

So put me in a forestry
And show me a sign
And take me to the final one more time

Take me to the final
Let me sign the logbook
Take me to the final one more time

I've recently noted that most of Szuchie's placements bear names that seem to rip off Eagles song titles in one way or another. For example this one comes directly from the chorus of peaceful easy feeling I think. Canadian music my ass! So I thought what was good for the goose would be swell for the gander (not that I know what a gander is other than there seems to be a mountian of them in TWU's neighborhood.

Oops time for work or perhaps a little rusty bench near a bee box caching. More to come.

Cache is gone but I can't remember how to archive it on Navicache!!

I found it! 16 Feb 2009    Together Forever  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

Alright I guess I'm just a sucker for the old Navicache site. I'm pretty certain that there will be limited viewing of this log as I am beginning to think there are about 6 people routinely visiting here that reside in the Western Hemisphere. Heck I'm not even going to bother with the spell check. So here's my log for the other 5.

We had visited this area before when Freddie's cache was active so had a pretty good idea of what to expect. After gathering the information required we waded into the adjacent woodlot sidestepping deer droppings on our way to the cache. Gps jumpiness caused us to take a circuitous route toward the cache similar to the swirl of a tolet bowl in the southern hemisphere. Eventually we were able to locate it, sign in and head back out.

Thanks for placing it.

Note 26 Jul 2008    The Great Letterbox Caper  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

So it all starts on a Friday night when with no real purpose I press the Navicache Icon on my favorites screen after noting disappointedly that there were no new intelligent posts to read on NYGO , again! Imagine my surprise to see a brand new cache published on this side of the Atlantic Ocean. Just as I was about to teach myself to read German to decipher those crazy clues here comes a brand new one right smack dab in the middle of our stomping grounds by that most eminent of cache placers, Szuchie. (your pointy hat is in the mail) Well we loaded the information required into the GPS, packed our pack and laid out the clothes most likely to be turned into rags after the hunt and quickly jumped into bed to get a good nightís rest cursing the no night caching icon all the while.

Somewhere about 5 we set out toward Holland and luckily timed our arrival to the moment the GPSr switched from night time to daylight mode and the hunt was on. We struggled a bit in the beginning not quite sure of the size of the nuance of nature (Can you get our nuance Supersized?) we were looking for but eventually succeeded and began navigating ala Szuchie style which is a bit more confusing than the metric system but doable as long as you donít confuse your kilos with your klingons. As always Szuchie took us on a complete tour of this piece of forestry showing us sights we would have never ventured to see on our own. Each stop offered a bit of a physical challenge to get to or a mental challenge to find upon arrival and about 2 hours later we were approaching the end of our quest when we were fortunate to spot the true Queen of this piece of forestry, Chickie, strolling down the lane despite Szuchieís attempts to block our view. After a short detour to visit with Chickie, Szuchie reminded me of what we were suppose to be doing in the woods and it was back to the hunt as they waited patiently practicing their elephant calls (they sounded pretty real to me you should go to the zoo to try them out) a few hundred yards away. After a bit of pacing back and forth as a quartet of another sort stood watch, we were able to locate the final piece of this adventure and sign in an empty log.

After reuniting with Chickie we were happy to learn that we were going to be rewarded for our efforts with the best FTF prize we have ever received, breakfast with Chickie at the Zider Zee. (Unimaginably better then grubbing down with a cavewomen and her hairy beasts, and Iím not talking about mammoths here) Off course the small print on the prize award sheet included some babble about Szuchie coming to chaperone so as to not piss off the lawyers we agreed to this unfortunate technicality. It wasnít all bad though because Szuchie, recognizing 3ís a crowd, invited his friend, Big Buck, to join us at the table which made for a lovely meal.

And I know this is one of those rambling logs that seem to have no purpose or direction so before I close let me officially say that this is another of the fine offerings we have come to expect from Szuchie. I for one appreciate his efforts to keep us amused and outdoors in areas we are unlikely to know exist. Thanks, took Szuchie String left zilch!

Finally in a big ahah moment the light is now shining in the bulb over my head! When I first spotted Szuchie in the woods he looked different to me and I couldnít put my finger on why he did. I commented that he looked marvelous this morning. He thought it may have been because of his new body lotion was giving off a healthy glow but I donítí think so. Now that Iím home it has hit me like a ton of bricks! He didnít have his visor on today and this is the first time I have seen him without it. Healthy skin my ass, it was those flowing blonde locks that caught my eye this morning!

I found it! 26 Mar 2008    Chocolate Covered Jelly Beans  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Somehow the recovery of this cache desreves a long winded story detailing the its appearance in neighborhood near home only to vanish soon afterward then reappear in a different area a bit furhther from home but change names fagain before a log could be entered. Frankly I was there and really don't know for sure what the heck happened but am happy to say it stayed put long enough for me to get this log entered. We spotted this one published on Navicache last night and decided to stay inside out of the rain for the night. We didn't have time to run out first thing this morning but when we found ourselve near the zero while travelling between here and there mid-morning we coudn't help but take a quick peak as we motored by. Thankfully we had a pair of boots and a loaner hiking stick in the truck because the terrain wasn't quite suitable for sneakers just yet and we like to keep our hiking staFFS jelly bean free. Coords were pretty much on the money and we were able to locate this cache container again after a short search.

Once again thanks for placing one close to home. Trails in the area might lead to a little further exploration.

I found it! 24 Mar 2008    It's the end of the line (the other side)  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Alright you betcha I was confused but when aren't I? After completing another Dragfire cache last night I spotted this posting when attemtping to log the other. After scouting the area which was very close to home I decided to wait til morning. Locating the cache was much easier than entering this log as I found the posting had mysteriously dissapeared overnight. Tracing a link back I found that it has been retired well before even getting started.

Hmmmmm Very Interesting!

Note I have just been updated by the owner via private message and now know the deal. Hopefully this one will be revived soon.

I found it! 23 Mar 2008    Welcome to Bowmansville  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found it. Compete log on GC.com

I found it! 14 Dec 2007    One for the Crew  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I "spotted" this one early Friday morning and even though we thought we should jet south to Sardinia immediately a planned day of pre Christas shopping and other chores prevented us from even thinking about diverting any further south than the McKinley Mall. So off we were right on course of our preplanned mundane ativity filled day all the while thinking there was a cache out there with our name on it just waiting for us to come find it. While grabbing some winter storm watch provisions at Tops I spotted a rack full of gift cards from several area businesses and light bulb went off. Gift Cards for everyone and I just cut my errands in half. Of course with plenty of newly found free time available to us we were soon plotting a course south.

We arrived at the park to find an unblemished blanket of snow and we were soon dusting off a few relics to begin the quest. I'm embarrassed to admit leg two, despite spot on coords took me 20 minutes to find. After realizing I myself had pulled the wool over my own eyes and a furious rounnd of one legged butt flaggelation it was of to stage three four and the final without additional duress. Well except for the part where I was questioned as to whether I was a bear walking in the woods due to my inclination to crawl between legs and a new black arctic carhart jacket I was sporting. Assured that I wasn't this kindred soul insisted on giving me diretions to places I wasn't going after I told him I ws taking a walk toward Earls. Eventualy he gave up his resue efforts and gave me an oppurtunity to sign in, grab a reem of Szuchie String and high tail it back north to finish my chores before Mrs. C got home and gave me piece of her Christmas spirit.

Thanks to Szuchie and Chickie for placing this great multi as I couldn't have done it better myself!

I found it! 21 Nov 2007    FATHERS DAY 04  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

Eight years after making the find here while hiking the FLT spur in LSP I was alerted via an odd series of events that despite having logged into the physical cache I never logged the find on the Navicache website.

Today, 11/28/15, I have decided to take corrective action by posting this log. I honestly don't remember the particulars of the find but I do recall a series of hikes made with friends on the east side of the Genesee caching along the way and have received confirmation that my signature is in the log.

I couldn 15 Sept 2007    HB's Walking Tour of Delaware Park!  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Bam and I made an early morning attempt here and came up short. Well I did anyway. Bam made out a little better meeeting a couple of cuties with ribbons in the hair on the walk.

I found it! 15 Sept 2007    HB's Walking Tour of Delaware Park!  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

After confirmaing our calculations with MR HB himself while finalizing a delivery of ammo cans we took a other ride out to walk in Delaware Park. This time we located it in a snap in a place we think we may have checked out once or twice this morning. Amazing what a clear head and a little sunlight will do to help out your caching abilities. We did enjoy both walks and finally have come up close and personal with some of the sights we have been driving by for so long. Thanks for geting us to slow down for a while by placing the cache here.

Note 08 Aug 2007    The Cache Logger's Companion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

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

I found it! 07 Aug 2007    The Cache Logger's Companion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

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

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

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

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

I found it! 31 Dec 2006    Eternal Flame Falls  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 3 )

While planning a trip to Chestnut Ridge to get some air on a fine 45 degree New Year's Eve I inadvertantly flipped over to the Navicache site for the first time in a month or two and was surprised to see some new listings locally. It seems this sight hasn't been quite as popular since the arrival of NYCacher at the other website. We're glad we made the return visit as this listing fit right into our plans of things to do today as one of Woody's pals had never made the trip to the falls and this would give us an oppurtunity to show them off.

The hike down to the falls was actually easier then finding a parking spot today as the area was the place to visit for many today. While hiking toward our goal we spotted cachers unfamiliar to us working on one of the Eternal Falls caches and struck up a conversation with them learning they were visiting from Kileen Texas and had recently returned there from Germany. (Yes TWU they were Army all the way.) After making plans to meet back at the parking coords to exchange geocoins we continued on our way. Despite the traffic problems above we foung the area near the falls empty except for us. The flames were burning strongly behind the falls and after taking the required photos the boys did a little more exploring on their own.

Thanks for bringing us back Urk as some places are certainly worth revisiting. And as as far as this sight all I can say is "we won't quit on you Navicache."

I found it! 11 Sept 2006    Frogs, Lizards, Flies, and Beetles.  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found it..........TFTH ------------------------ Allright then here's the real log. Saw this one posted this morning before heading out to work and thought we would could rendevoux with a sunrise in Darien. We beat the sun by a few minutes and located the cache quickly despite poor lighting because of the dead nutz-spot on- dam near perfect- on the money coords posted by that master of the GPsr HuckleBuckle. Our Gpsr read 3 feet when the cache was spotted and only had o use the backlight on the GPSr to insure no animate objects we in hiding with the cache. Sign in and ran taking and leaving nothing. Thanks (bye the way does this log make up for all the ones we posted questioning your coord averaging skills?)

PS thanks for not archiving this one on this site..... ever

I found it! 25 Jul 2006    Frank Lloyd Wright Series Final: Boathouse  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

We we knew we wouldn't have a chance at the FTF here after Rayman posted his note regarding releasing the final info on Monday when I was scheduled for a double shift but there was no way we were not going to finish what we started. We headed out today after retrieving all the clues from McDonald's wrappers and gas station receipts which had bben waded up in the golvebox for a while and headed to the river. The final cache was retreved in short order and we swapped some light sticks for the multi tool which wasn't exactly a fair trade on our part but our cache bag was on e today. We'll have to get back when we reload. Took the Sppoky TB which I think we'll be able to move toward it's goal. Thanks for your efforts on the series Rayman. We know they can be difficult to set up and maintain. We enjoyed visting the sites and will visit Graycliff soon cache or no cache.

I almost forgot to mention one of the highlights of this tour for us when meeting the Searching Seniors a energetic elderly couple just starting out on their caching adventures.

I found it! 31 May 2006    Frank Lloyd Wright Series #5: Blue Sky Mausoleum  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Took a ride to Forest Lawn this morning and thankfully found the gates open a little earlier than the posted 8:00AM. After a short visit at Blue Sky we retrieved the information neccessary to complete the cache and sign the log at 7:45 AM. Thanks again for the tour.

Another visit to A F.L. Wright home thanks to the tour given by Rayman. we're pretty sure we didn't slow down lon enough to disturb the neighbors. When we reached Delaware Park we found channel 4 setting up for a live eye with the zero in the background. Thankfully the calculated coords were great an we were able to bet in and out quickly. Thanks Again.

I found it! 26 Apr 2006    Frank Lloyd Wright Series #3: Heath House  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

We needed to get back to Deleware Park to retrieve the clue from number one that someone misplaced. This new one gave us the incentive to get out there. It provided another view of a FLW home that we were unaware of. It was also nice to run into the Senior Searchers while in pursuit of the final. Sorry about the boost Edna, I gotta be more careful where I put my hands. Sharing the FTF honors at 11:30AM. Come on TWU do you need any more clues?

I found it! 09 Apr 2006    Winter All Year Round  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Woody and I were doing a little cache maintainence this evening and decided that since we were on Seneca St (although we were closer to East Aurora than Buffalo) anyway we would take a ride up route 16 to see what was going on up by the Caz. After a short hike to the zero I put Woody to work and stayed clear. He came up with the cache but he had to work for it. He came up with the find in about 15 minutes and we signed in at 8:00pm and headed for the showers. Thanks to both of you. We're are suprised you were able to keep it a secret in a car full of cachers.

I found it! 06 Apr 2006    R.T.  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

A quick grab this evening at about 8:30 PM. Had to go it alone this time as Woody was already showered and getting ready for bed. I'm still trying to figure out if I can count this as another cache in Lancaster or if this is an Elma find. It's almost to close to call. Thanks Huckle

I found it! 23 Mar 2006    Tillman Road No. 3 (Navicache only hide!!)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

I found it! 21 Mar 2006    Confundus  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

Somehow my fat fingers have deleted a lengthy log entry three times in a row so now you only get the Reader's Digest version. Saw this one last night, checked on it this morning, worked the puzzle out at work and then grabbed Woody and Vmphunter for a run after dinner. Our solution placed us five feet from the cache and we were surprised no log entries when we checked the log. Traded a marker set and sticky hands for a deck of cards and the Pillsbury Dough Boy and claimed FTF at 6:35 PM almost 20 hours after posting. That's an eternity even on this site lately.

Our bigest mistake of the day was passing the suggested parking area and bushwhacking in from a closer spot on the road. Suffice to say we walked out the long way.

Thanks for your creativity. These puzzle caches keep it interesting.

The deleted cache was way longer and tons funnier.

I found it! 16 Mar 2006    Good Things  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

While in the neighborhood for what seemed like the 50th trip trying to solve the nearby mystery Woody, Vmphunter and I decided to take a little side trip to hunt this one. We certainly encountered plenty of wildlife on the way in and out but for us the good things will always be the milkshakes we share on the way home. Thanks for your efforts.

I found it! 05 Mar 2006    Welcome to Depew!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Well we were just about to nod off watching the Academy Awards when someone decided to check out Navicache for new ones. Minutes later Woody, Vmphunter and I were out the door heading to the east thinking there was a FTF berry to pick in the garden of Depew. Little did we know there were others lurking in the garden today and we had to settle for being number 2 3 and 4.

Thanks for adding to the Lancaster Cache Population. I think this makes 32 in the town.

I found it! 01 Mar 2006    McNaughton Field  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1 )

We returned to the park today to resume our search for this cache after being unsuccessful after it originally appeared on this site. Certainly the previous logs helped us locate this diamond in the rough and now we can take it off our list of things to do! Thanks and there is plenty of room on the new log sheet.

I found it! 24 Feb 2006    4 8 15 16 23 42  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

It's not often we are sitting around the computer waiting for new caches to appear in the middle of the day with our work and school schedules. Today was a bit different as we were both home and just about to begin one of Woody's school projects. Prior to searching for other 6th graders reports to plagurize on google I asked him to check the Geocaching .com site one more time for new ones. Well wouldn't you know there sits a big fat Huckle Buckle Mystery Cache just about 3 miles from home. That project was just going to have to wait.
The hardest part for us to figure out the correct coords was determining HB's favorite TV show as we were unfamilair with this particular show. At first we thought it may be either Yugioh, Monday Night Raw, Fear Factor or The Amazing Race which happen to be our favorites. One of the questions helped us figure it out though and once we figured that out we raced to google the answers to the questions which provided the true coords. Minutes later we were out the door and heading to Stiglmeier. Once in the park I gave Woody a minute to put his shoes and socks on and we headed into the Woods to find this cache passing a small herd of deer who seemed to have survived the latest round of bait and shoot. The calculated coords took us to elevan feet of the cache and as often as we have ribbed Huckle on his errant coords I would have to say these are on the money! Woody spotted the ammo can from about 30 feet out and we claimed the FTF at about 10:30 AM.

We grabbed a magnetic button and left a bionicles toy and flashlight behind. Heck we also left our favorite pencil in the cache for the next to log.

I will say I am pleased that we had the foresight to mark the parking area prior to heading in to the woods as we could have easily become DISORIENTATED and not been able to find our way out. we may have even gon ASTRAY and turned up MISSING. Perhaps we would have never been FOUND. You just never know.

Thanks to Huckle for giving us the oppurtunity to have some fun today.

I found it! 23 Feb 2006    Second Choice  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Well we woke up early on our day off having to use the facilities after a couple of fellow cachers failed to consume their fair share of the 7th to find prize at Wandering through Lancasterís mystery final last night causing us to take in too much fluid before hitting the hay last night. Of course there was no way we would be able to get back to sleep. Our first thought was to watch a little TV but we have already seen the Girlís Gone Wild infomercial about 914 times (like a moth to the flame!) so we went to the laptop and checked the new postings on the available caching sites.

Seeing this one posted got us a little excited but frankly a FTF run to Lockport wasnít in our plans today and we ignored the opportunity to claim a FTF for about six minutes until the bug became fully awake and led us out the door.

We left Lancaster with clear skies and balmy 33 degree temps. Upon arriving at the parking cords we found slightly different weather conditions with fog as thick as pea soup. All right it wasnít that thick maybe more like minestrone. Well not exactly Minestrone either because there werenít any chunks of fog. I guess chicken broth most accurately describes the thickness. Anyway we headed into the fog about 6:00AM, use the clue to our advantage (hey who wants to bushwhack in chicken broth?) and found the well stocked ammo can claiming the FTF at 6:20AM.

We traded a flashlight and bionicles toy for a Frito Lay note pad and key chain. We also left behind a TB that we will have to log on the other site. Our cords had us at about 20 feet off our zero but that shouldnít prevent anyone from recovering this one. We also added a little bit more cover to the cache as we found it to be a little overexposed. We hope the owners donít mind.

Finally congratulations to the owners for placing the first ďrealĒ cache. Weíll be looking forward to seeing more.

I couldn 29 Jan 2006    McNaughton Field  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1 )

After seeing TWU"s DNF we thought we wouldtake a quick ride over to check things out. We were so sure that Urkel would have found it with good coords that we didn't even start at the zero but just wandered the park searching likely spots wihout success. We checked the zero before we left without success and then returned home to find that General MacUrkel had returned and conquered this one. We'll have to give this one another shot soon.

I found it! 21 Jan 2006    JEOPARDY!!!! ***NAVICACHE ONLY****  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

After getting home after a double shift we spotted HuckleBuckle's newest on this site. It wasn't long before we were searching the internet for the questions to the Jeapordy answers thinking we would make an early moring attempt on this one. After learning the caches approxiamate location we decided just to head out tonight rather than wait til morning as the cache was only a couple of miles away. After ariving at our calculated zero in the middle of a cut corn field we began doubting Huckle's coords and simply began searching randomly at likely nearby areas. This method proved to be ineffective and we gave up after about 45 minutes when the rain started. We were already composing our DNF log on the walk back to the truck questioning the coords. Prior to leaving the area we recalculated the questions to Alex Huckle's answers and the SIMPLE math required to learn the coords. It was then discovered that a 2 digit error was made in a simple subtraction problem (heck we weren't even required to carry the one!) and we came up with a new set of coords taking us in a different direction. Things were looking up and we recovered the cache in minutes on the second attempt a scant 20 feet from our zero this time around. Given the cover in the area 20 feet is going to be as good as it gets.

So in the end we take back all the things we said about Huckle in the privacy of the corn stubble last night after the first futile search and now wish to praise him for his skillful placement of this cache. We thought the Jeapordy theme was cool and appreciate his efforts to keep us entertained. We traded a button for our pen as the cache was without one and then headed for home.

With minimal oppurtunities to get out and cache this week Woody and I took a quick run out to Losson to catch up on some new placements. we made a quick find here and seeing that TWU had logged moments before us made a mad dash into the park hoping to catch up to him. Like others we will have to get going and create a stamp. Thanks.

Thanks Mick.

I found it! 27 Nov 2005    The History of Sienkiewicz  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

We spotted this one late Saturday night and thought twice about heading right out. We decided it best to make an early moring run for it. Sunday morning we headed out before work and made quick work of it. I think Huckle's footprints were still visible in the snow. the coords placed us close enough that we truly didn't need to rely and any additional help. FTF 5:30Am 11-27-05. Thanks Huckle.

Once again, Thanks Huckle as this little jog in the park increased our apetite for turkey. This was a nice little twist that wasn't too difficult to solve and the coords were good enough to get us to the cache.

I found it! 30 Oct 2005    Cheektowaga Town Park  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

After a long day motocrossing and caching near Jamestown Woodie and I showered up and got intoour PJ's after dinner. We started working on our logs for the day and reading some e mail when one of us decided to check this site. Not long after that we were walking in the dark in Cheektowaga. Woodie doesn't have an account here yet which allows me to log the FTF at 8:35PM tonight but the truth is he huckled me on both parts. We are also very happy to report that Hucklebuckle is getting better with the coords as we found the final to be only 70 feet from our zero. Heck that beats 0.2 mi any day. Here's some help, go to your zero and then take 25 paces to the west. Thanks for the placement.

I found it! 21 Oct 2005    The Season Series:AUTUMN  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Yeah right only in the daylight, that's a good on ha ha ha ha ha, this coming from someone who climbed a fence into gated pet cemetery at midnight to claim a FTF. I was tempted to not log it until the sun was up as late logs of FTF's seems to becoming a trend but it's not our style. Perhaps we'll save someone some gas money. Vmphunters and the CC headed out seconds after seeing the post. After cheking the bathtub at apt # 3546 in the adjacent complex where the posted coords took us we just randomly searched the woods until recovering the cache 0.2 miles (man those must have been some clouds) away at a heading of 309 degrees. I guess I could post the actual coords but then it wouldn't be an adventure for the next to find. Grabbed one of the bugs and left the other.

I found it! 26 Sept 2005    Throw Me a Line  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Well there is a story to tell here I just don't know if I have any energy left to tell it. I saw this one listed this morning but could not get an early jump on it due to prior commitments. I did manage to stop by the area on the way home from a shopping trip on Transit Road. While there about noon time I snooped around the area of stage one without much success until Mrs. Cayuga shouted from the van to check the #$%^&*???. I told her how crazy that was as no one would hide anything there and then went and checked and found it. Before I had the oppurtunity to even think about stage two Mrs. Cayuga enticed me back into the van by sweetly saying the words that warm my heart, seperation, divorce, alimony, child support... and off we went to the next stop on the honeydew trail.
Afetr finally completing my chores I was able to slip away about 4:00PM and return to the escarpment. As I plodded around the next stage I found some likely spots only to be dissapointed. Oh did I fail to mention the passing thunderstorms? I was surprised when I heard someone call out "Are you geocaching?" and turned suddenly to see Skeeterbait himself standing behind me with a funny grin on his face. We discussed the coords and decided that an something was amiss and although he didn't tell me anything more about the cache he did assist by idicating the approximate area of his zero which happened to be an area I had already searched. I was finally able to locate it about 25 minutes later focusing on the new zero. Skeeter left me and headed home after that and I headed to the next stage.

I think Skeeter left thinking that there was no way I was going to find stage 3 after watching me butcher the hunt at 2. Ha Ha Ha he didn't anticipate the luck of the Cayuga and after becoming distacted by a possible find which wasn't a find after all I was able to locate the clue and get moving as darkness fell upon the escarpment. I don't want to say too much about the rest of the hunt but I believe a straight line from 3 to 4 is not the best option, quickest maybe but certainly not the safest. It's a good thing this park closes at dusk play it safe abide by the rules.

I'll finish by saying I was standing near the final in the dark, sweaty, boots full of water, the real mosquitos nibbling on my neck and just plain tuckered out with the biggest damn smile I ever had after finding a cache. Took the TB tags as my reward and headed home to dry of and rinse off. Thanks Skeeter, good to see you got it posted here so quickly

All right our first FTF on Navicache. Vmphunters and I headed out today after school and arrived in Wheatfield about 4:00PM. We worked our way through the stages slowly and surely and for the most part the coords were dead on allowing us to focus our search at the zero and avoid nearby potential hiding spots. All stages are creative fun hides but our favorite will remain the final, go find it and find out why. I imagine this took more than a minute to set up and test and we really appreciate TWU's efforts here. Others should come visit prior to placing there own just to get a feel for a quality hide utilizing the available space. Thanks, We had a blast.

Great coords and cache description made this one a pretty easy find in the dark. FTF 5:15AM 9-7-05

I found it! 19 Jul 2005    Swift Running Water  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

A great to to bike along the river. Muggles will present the greatest challange to cachers attempting to complete this cache as they seem to be everywhere along the riverwalk attempting to escape this summer's heat. We worked around them and had a great time completing this one.

I found it! 08 Jul 2005    Now Playing At a Cache Near You...  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I found it! 30 Jun 2005    ERIE'S END  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Completed this cache on an early morning hike with minimal difficulty. We certainly enjoyed the hike on a balmy summer morning and picked up a bunch of fishing tips on the way out to stage one.

I found it! 23 Jun 2005    Historical Tour of West Seneca  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

As Paul Harvey says "Here's the rest of the story" After logging the DNF earlier I reported the results of my algebra to HuckleBuckle and asked him to determine if I have made a math error as I don't really believe he wants me to go where the coords are taking me and there is certainly room for error deciphering 5 clues to come up with the final coords. After receiving his reassurance that I can still do basic math I decided to take another run after this one. I did enjoy the history lesson although I have visited many of these sites living nearby in Lancaster. I did do one thing different this time though and that was taking one eyed Woodie with me. Woodie just got out of the hospital after taking a paint ball in the eye over the weekend and is now officially wearing the pirate's patch that we often leave behind at caches we have found. Anyway back to the story, We head back over to Burchfield and find it loaded with muggles. Fortunatley they thinned out when we reached our zero. I tried shooting azimuths and taking measurements in an atempt to narrow down the search as I still didn't believe in our zero. Woodie walked off somewhere and as I prepared for the final assault. As I started counting paces to my next search quadrant Old one eye Woodie calls over and queeries "Why are you going that way the cache is over here and then held it up form me to see. Anyway I get the last laugh as Woodie hasn't saved enough dough to become a premium member he is unable to log this as A Woodies Roundup FTF. Score one for Cayuga Crew but I couldn't have done it without him.
By the way the place where he found it was 85 feet from my zero a bearing of 026 degrees true. See it pays to read to the end of the story.

Thanks to HuckleBuckle for setting this one up. It really is a nice tour of Northwestern West Seneca and all clues can be gathered in about 30 minutes by car.

I found it! 18 Jun 2005    That Wacky Palindrome Cache  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Snuck in this morning in the early light of dawn and wondered "Was it a rat I saw" under the bridge? When I scanned the probable locations of the hide i had visions of a another Rocky Road. I confess I went right to the clue which might be too good. A more patient cacher should probally make an attempt on this one without the clue as the coords are great and had me down to 10 feet. Hooray for HuckleBuckle! FTF 5:50 AM 6-15-05.

I found it! 18 Jun 2005    Woodchip Trail Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Went out to check this one today with Woodie's Roundup on the way to the Riverwalk. As others have logged coords were tough in the foilage but after a while they settled a bit and had us within 25 feet of stage one. After locating that one Woodie took off on a dead run for the final and spotted the likely spot from about 50 feet out. We found the caceh to be full of quality trade items and traded a flashlight, whoopie cushion and key chain for the fm radio and carbiner.
I have to admit that I was here once before and missed stage one shortly after the cache was listed. I thought for sure I posted a DNF then but I don't see it in the existing logs. It's not like us to miss posting our failures as we are just as proud of them as we are our finds.

I found it! 17 Jun 2005    Milestone Multi  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2.5 )

Okay, we donít get it, hereís a brand new multi laden with trade articles and TBís just begging to be found in a park frequented by most WNY geocachers and yet minimal attention is given to it. On top of it all it commemorates Mickís 3ooth find, heck I bet he was expecting a parade of cachers attempting to locate his cache. I canít believe itís been out there for a week with only one logged attempt. Well thatís just wrong. Fortunately this afternoonís rain came in time to cancel baseball and free us up for a little caching. We headed out and deciphered the clues to stage two from the bug free confines of the truck and then headed into the bush. The mosquitoes escorted us into the area of the stage 2 coords. We were fortunate to locate stage 2 relatively quickly and continued our quest to complete this cache before dark. Everything went along smoothly until we approached the final cache and found ourselves walking in circles aimlessly swatting skeeters looking for a sign. Well all I can say is we heard our sign before seeing it and stopped dead in our tracks to recover the cache. Imagine our pleasure to find a brand spanking new package of insect repellant as a trade item in the cache. There was no stinking way we were passing that one up. We swapped a few other items and TBís and took off running for the next cache. All coords were right on we wouldnít have found it otherwise. Congratulations on 300 Mick and I got to say this was way more fun than that Sweating Micro. Keep it up. FTF 6-17-05 7:50PM

I found it! 15 Jun 2005    That Wacky Palindrome Cache  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

I found it! 04 Jun 2005    Pilecki Pond AKA Willow Ridge part deux  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

we had a few hours to kill on a chore/baseball/birthday party saturday and decided to try and log that webcam cache along with a few others in the area. We started out all together in the SWHS parking lot as suggested, carefully crossed Sweethome Rd and then decided it would be every cacher for himself when we hit the bikepath. Woodie and one of his Roundup brothers who has recently be ordered to to walk the Cayuga Plank due to his disloyalty to the Crew nce again teamed up and left me watching their butts disappear over the 990 horizon. My only hope is that they leave bread crumbs so I can follow them. I'm not sure they even stopped for stage one. They did wait for meat stage two (probably because I was carrying the snack pack) and feigned not be able to find it without my help. After I did find it I learned they had already loaded the coords into the GPSr and heard them laughing as they road away. Once again I was able to catch them at the final as they had finished looting all the good stuff. If I remember correctly they took a couple of carabiners and a where's george dollar. We left a pirate eye patch, maze game, antenna topper and something else that I can't remember because I have celebrated a little with some ice tea and grog since we got home. Yes I'm done driving and cachine for the night. Well we had fun and we've been to one of those spots that you see as you speed past on the highway and wonder how you get there. All in all a pretty good way to spend a couple of hours in the middle of a busy day. Thanks Urkel will be looking for more. Next up is the night cache if we can find enough skeeter repellant.

I found it! 24 May 2005    Chac's Revenge  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 2 )

Well Woodie got off the school bus and saw me logging the morning finds. He got a little irked that I left him behind in school again. He discussed what he learned and who's lunch money he extorted an he mentioned something about the ancient blank culture. Well the bells went off and I challanged him to solve the riddle promising if he did we'd pack up (yeah right like we ever unpack) and head out. I also mentioned that I'd like to try that other nearby multiplicity. So you know the rest, he figured it out, yelled out the door to round up some neighborhood crew members, and off we went. As the others have reported solving the puzzle may be the most dificult part of this one. We parked nearby and Woodie put his nose to the ground and went to work coming up with the cache in minutes. Woodie and another crew member claimed some booty, I think a carabiner and Mick's last dollar and we left behind a flashlight and a hot wheels car. Thanks for the variation as it is the spice of geocaching life.

I found it! 24 May 2005    Spawn of Multiplicity # 5  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Well we've been thinking about keeping up with multiplicity placements and have collected all but #6 to date. Amazingly nothing eventful happened to us on this cache. We parked, we hiked, we found the cache. I'm sure Woodie grabbed something, I think it was a string of beads and thik we left behind a rubber bracelet and flashlight. Thanks

I found it! 20 May 2005    Under The Sea...  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Okay I have to be a little frank. I found the first stage coords to have us hunting about 80 feet away from our zero. We located stage one only after enlarging our search grid much further than we normally would. We had a similar experience at Birchfield 3 which caused us to expand our search I marked the following coords for stage 1 N42 53.137 W078 43.924. These coords were confirmed by a fellow cacher who said that he put in an multi hour search at the site prior to moving on to another cache. Stage 2 and 3 coords are okay and Woodie was able to take off on his own to finish ahead of us. I don't want to be too negative as in the end we enjoyed the cache and crossing paths with fellow cachers however I think it's a bit unreasonable to hide micro in a featureless woodlot without assuring the accuracy of the coords.

Allright I'll admit that I ran into Mick a day earlier at another cache site but I did not ask him for any clues to the I-90 cache. I'm not sayng he didn't give me any I'm just saying I didn't ask. Well armed with a few vague hints (Mick can you hold the laser pointer steady on the cache please?) I was finally able to locate this cache after a true total of about 8 attempts. I dreamt about it twice too but didn't know if I should log the dreams. I'm not to say aything more other than I am certainly impressed by the abilities of those able to find it without having seen this type of container before or hints from Mick.

Okay I guess we're in. Took Woodie out today for a little afterwork caching and decided to give this navicache thing a try after finding the link from the Railroad History Caches. This was a nice hide that we had more trouble replacing due to a group of muggles moving through the area after we found it. We took the Velo even though we're not sure what it does and left A magnifying glass, dice, a magnetic key holder.

Well the rain stopped and we were in the neighborhood. No solo attempt this time the whole crew was on board along with Woodies roundup. The mandate was issued "No Slurpies until we find this thing." It took all of 15 seconds to locate stage 2. I have a theory why I could not find it earlier that I will keep private. Then a quick jaunt over to the final which was muggle free due to the weather. We turned Woodie loose and he came up with the find in a couple minutes. Okay I guess it's not a FTF but I guess it qualifies as a FTFAIHBPOG (First To Find After It Has Been Posted On Geochacing.com) We couldn't have done it without Woodie anyway.

A fairly tough hide from Mick was made a bit easier knowing the genetic make up of the multiplicty children FTF @ 2:40PM 4-13-05. I almost forgot to mention the pleasure of caching with company even when it's unexpected. Thanks Dru.

I found it! 29 Mar 2005    Darien Diversion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

It seems the crew has mutinied and formed their own group. I have become the driver for Woodies Roundup but I still get to log a find right. A 1/2 hike on dry trails was just what we needed today. Rumor has it Woodies Roundup has located the rabitt TB and is in possession of it.

I found it! 20 Mar 2005    Sweatin' Micro  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found it, logged in and left. Not the most scenic of places.

I found it! 10 Mar 2005    My Cache Get's No Respect!  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

This was our third visit to the site and we were about to quit due to a stiff cold wind but after giving it another 5 minutes we came upon the cache. Now we can drive by here and not have the urge to stop and look. Took the dinosaur and left a milion bucks and dice. Ziplock was ripped so we replaced it. There was no damage or moisture inside. No travel bug was found in cache

I found it! 09 Mar 2005    Amherst State Park Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Our first stop on a tour of Ellicot Creek Caches today. Dirctions to the foot bridge allowed us to save some gas and get this one and Glen Falls aquaview from same parking area, Thank You very much. Took bunny and mini cards, left a milion bucks and a pair of dice.

I found it! 09 Mar 2005    Glen Falls Aquaview  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

A tough find in the snow. There were fresh tracks a day or two old near the cache but no recent log entries. 2nd of four finds today on the banks of Ellicott Creek. Took elephant anf Keys to the Shitty TB. How could we resist. Left a million bucks and a pair of dice. Hiked in from Amherst State Park using the foot bridge over the creek? The log book was a little damp so we placed it into a new ziplock.

I found it! 06 Mar 2005    Amherst's Amazing Talking Toilet  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Talking toilet and golden spikes.
Another FUN find for the Cayuga Crew.
Found with minimal difficulty. Toilet is still talking. We did note that the log was damp as ziplock was split on a corner. Placed log in a new smaller ziplock. Took the golden spike. The youngest crew member can't resist them. Bushwhachked out to the bridge as the walking trails were iced over and provided poor footing

I found it! 06 Mar 2005    Hot Wheels  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

Our first find of the day. Batteries were running low on the GPS and had us bouncing around a bit. The shortest of us found it about 30 feet from our ground zero. Who new Amherst was this big? Took a hot wheels left a new one along with a million bucks and some dice. Upon review this was the toughest of 5 finds today. Note that the waste recepticle is missing from the suggested parking area but the main gates are open and the lot is plowed.
