I've visited Mt Albion many times over the years. I have some ancestors buried here, so I stopped to see them after finishing my caching business. Thanks!

Hello, CC, so nice to hear from you! As webmaster, I surf the latest logs on this site several times a week. Contrary to popular belief, we are not dead, and are very happy with the traffic on this site. In the warmer months, there are well over 100 unique visitors a day. The standard view on Google Analytics is the last 30 days, and without fail, we have visitors from all 50 States every month; including like North Dakota and Vermont and shit. We also have, on an average in warmer months, 60 people a week that join. A day doesn't go by that someone doesn't create an account here. Even though Geocaching itself peaked on Google trends in 2011, and new cache placements are down everywhere in the world three years in a row now, we're not going anywhere. Especially since we have a new Canadian Web hosting company that charges us less than $200 a year, 1/3 of what we used to pay.

Sorry, I didn't make a 60 mile round trip to Orleans County, which I'm rarely in, to find this cache. Which sounds awesome, I get to climb that tower again? One of these days.

I started the morning cleaning up a pile of e mails I had never filed or deleted from my swollen in-box when I spotted a month old notice announcing the publication of this cache on the Opencaching site way back on May 16th. I’ll be honest and say I kind of wanted to hit the delete button but relented and hit the link to the cache page to reread the description one more time. I guess that’s all it took as I decided to take a minor detour while passing through Orleans County this afternoon. I’ve visited the location before and remember logging the benchmark a decade ago but planned to make the climb one more time to verify to dates on the geodisk. Unfortunately there were a few families at the monument who didn’t appear to be in any hurry to leave and rather than barge through the group outing I relied on the hint to get the info I required. I took the longer than expected walk to the zero and began the search. There were numerous places to hide a decon container in the general area but the coords were good enough to eliminate many of them and I was eventually able to make the find. I guess I’ll skip the sarcastic comments feigning surprise when I found a virgin log more than a month after publication but really one would think a opencacher fervent enough to make his wheels a moving cache via the magical application of a sticker would have rolled the pride of the opencaching fleet a bit east to hunt for this new cache. I know I’ve suggested that Opencaching if not dead is certainly in need of life support but I do appreciate the efforts of Sabrefan to provide resuscitation by dropping in a new cache every once in a while. So to him I say thanks for placing a real cache out there for me to find. To the rest of you who claim unwavering allegiance to the site but fail to support others who share your passion I say PFFFFFFFFTTTT!
