Description   EN   

Why are they there? To protect you, I would imagine. From what, I have no clue.

This is a pleasant walk along the Tonawanda Creek Bike Trail in Amherst (paved). If you are lucky enough to get the VIP parking (only holds like 2 cars), this is less than .50 miles round trip. From the "Nice New parking lot", probably under a mile, round trip.

Two leg multi-cache. *PLEASE MAKE SURE THE FIRST LEG ISN'T EXPOSED TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC BEFORE LEAVING*. You'll see what I mean after you find it. The final is a small camo-taped lock-n-lock, well concealed, in a target rich environment. But being a two-trip cache placement, I'm convinced the coordinates are highly accurate. You should only have to bushwack about 100 feet to the final, don't be that guy, and do it earlier. An early April placement, but I'd imagine this 100 feet is rather intense in the summer. Have fun, Opencachers.

1 13 July 2012 DudleyGrunt Found it

3403.  My second stop running around WNY, today.  I even got to be a VIP, too.  Only spotted one muggle using the trail and he wasn't an issue.

Took a little bit to get to the proper GZ, but once I felt I was in the right place, I made the find without trouble.

Was listening to the latest Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast on the lost settlement of Roanoake.  I almost felt I was trying to make MY way around virgin territory.

Left one of my wooden nickels.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

1 21 January 2012 team scrunchy Found it

Ringo and I figured it was about time to crash this party so we are logging our first OCUS find. Found in the afternoon and was much colder out than our morning walk. Have trouble with this web site so had to look up the cache on the smart phone and enter the coordinates by hand. Now I'm having trouble with this log. We started from the fire station and after a short distance saw a spot I thought would be a good place for a cache. Turns out somebody else had the same thought. So ends our first OCUS encounter. Maybe if I can figure out this web site we'll try some others. TFTC

I have all the local OC caches loaded on my GPS so I can grab that spontaneous find.  Was driving thru hunting for a nearby cache and decided to grab this one as well since it was only about .3 miles away.  Once I got to GZ I realized it was an OC cache so that was a nice little bonus.  Found both legs without difficulty and both are in great shape.  Rehid as found and everything is good to go.  Thanks for the cache!!

Biked my way along the path from the bridge. I nabbed Leg 1 right away. Hopefully I didn't rehide it too well. But any cacher worth his salt should have no trouble with it.

Reaching the final was not exactly intense, but not entirely pleasant either. The mosquitoes were glad to see me. Luckily I quickly spotted a conspicuous something-or-other, signed in, and got out again. Thanks!

1 15 April 2011 dayout4us Found it

we enjoyed our walk along the path and searched a while for leg one..not realizing it was a multi lol. saw the clue that we indeed had more to do, so loaded it up and headed out. found that the final coords were great and lead us right to the intended spot. cache is in great shape, signed the log and returned exactly as found. TFTC Mr. Yuck!
