Description   EN   

This 3 stage cache will take you on a walk in a Unique area of State Land in Akron NY. There are 3 marked trails. A Blue Trail,Yellow Trail and Red Trail. Each waypoint will be about 100 to 140ft off the trail so no serious bushwhacking will be necessary. You will need to use all 3 trails to complete your quest. The Akron area is notorious for its jumpy satellite reception. I averaged each waypoint over 300 times just be patient and let your compass settle down at each spot. I hope you will find this an enjoyable and challenging walk. First 2 stages are small/micro final is a genuine 50 caliber ammo box with a few trade items and choice of 2 new fishing lures for the FTF.

1 29 March 2013 Recommendation Mr.Yuck Found it

Wow, I never logged a DNF, eh? Well, at least the cache owner knows, I called him the day I DNF'd it! It was in November sometime, shortly after his maintenance visit. I actually found the first two legs, but couldn't find an ammo box in a snowstorm with 2-3 inches of snow on the ground, can you believe that? So I was out in Akron with Barbershop Dru for our mostly annual Good Friday outing, and I convinced her to stop at the unique area for me to cross this off the list. I also needed a micro in the woods there, although she already had that one. We actually stumbled on the back way in to the Preserve at the top of the Escarpment, a parking area I had no idea existed. Found in only about 5 minutes on site, and she actually found the location before I did! Wow, it's jam packed full of good stuff, but I had nothing to trade today. Thanks for placing this excellent cache on our website, which I can now say that I'm an admin, which I wasn't when I started the cache. Laughing I talked a long-time cacher into giving OCNA a try at an event last week, and this is the first one I'm sending him to, if he'll be out this way. TFTC.

Well, I made this a trully unique cache find....I let Mr. Yuck do all the leg work...then I spotted the cache!  Seemed only fair don't ya know?

This is a really nice view from the path of this escarpment...certainly worthy of an Earth Cache!  Do they have those in Open Caching US?

Anyway, since we were out in this area for our annual Good Friday cache pilgrimage, it only seemed right to let Mr. Yuck look for this one again.  There was still a little snow nearby, but not the 3 feet like the first time he was here...LOL.  Funny.

So, thanks for the OC, not sure how many I have found now.....must be a statisic somewhere????

A beautiful day to do some maintenance and some froggy caching. Much to my surprise leg 1 was dislodged and chewed up a bit, its still serviceable but will need replacing. I had a replacement for leg 2 but it was not needed. It too had been dislodged but by a fallen tree.  Leg 3 is as I thought it would be nice and dry and in great shape. Enjoy your walk!

Iset out on a wonderfully warm December Sunday with this cache as my final destination. To my surprise, there were two cars in the parking area, but no sign of them on the trails. Interesting to note that the sign for this DEC area is missing so I couldn't even check in on foursquare. Wink

The walk to the first leg was pretty short, and in no time I spotted the nicely hidden first stage. Further on down the trail, I also had no troubles with the second leg. By this time it was getting pretty late and darkness was coming on pretty soon, so I kind of cheated a little and didn't take a trail to the final. After looking around a minute or so, I spotted something suspicious which turned out to be the hide spot.

This is how a multi should be done. Excellent on all aspects. Well done sir! TFTC and the nice hike.

I have been meaning to get out here and make the find on this one.  Today was the day.  At leg one I looked where I thought it should be only to find it laying on the ground nearby.  I put it back where I originally looked rather than throwing it on the ground.  I am sure the racoons will play with it tonight, making my efforts in vain but I'm good with that.  Leg two had traditional Akron coords.  I missed it when I looked there the first time and then proceeded to a target that fit the hint.  No dice.  I returned to the first target and made the find.  On the way to leg 3, I took some time to search for the frog cache near by.  Initially I struck out there so I kept climbing and headed for this zero.  After a brief search, I had the can in hand.  Retracing my steps eventually resulted in a find of the other cache I was looking for. This is a cool little forest.  I enjoyed the solitude after riding the gauntlet earlier in the day.  TFTC.
