Description   EN   

You are looking for a small camoed Tupperware container the BIT and stash sheet are inside that.

This BIT cache will take you to,the Holland Land Office and Museum. During the first half of the 19th Century, the Holland Land Office Company used this historic landmark building. The Big Tree Treaty of 1797 between representatives of Declaration of Independence signer, Robert Morris and the Seneca Indians opened Western New York for settlement. Shortly after, the Holland Land Company purchased the land from Mr. Morris. The 3 1/2 million-acre purchase then became known as the Holland Purchase. Please visit the link below for the museum web site there is a lot of great information there

Crud. Only physcial OCNA attempt of the day, and I couldn't find it, even after asking the owner for a hint via text, which he provided relatively quickly. I had a GeoKrety I picked up in Maryland, which came from Germany to drop, but it wasn't going to happen. Oh well, thanks anyways. Not saying it's missing, I was definitely running late to pick up my kid from Darien Lake in the rain.

Woo hoo!  FTF baby! Our first FTF on an OCUS cache! Never logged a BIT cache before, either! Good thing we had a snowbrush in the truck still or we would've never been able to have reached it! Phew!  Hopefully, retrieval will be easier for the next finder.  TFTC!!
