I too am surprised at how many names are in the logbook. Its nice to see though! Took a great walk on a 60 degree December day. Did some cache maintenance and found a letterbox. It was nice to get out into the woods again after being on the DL for so long. Laughing

I came here after finding Harmonic Convergence in Leroy. Then at the intersection of 19 and 20, I took the wrong off ramp, and ended up going East instead of West. So I turned around in the parking lot of a bar, and decided I should have a beer there. It was a very nice place, very clean! So then I made my way to Genesee County Park, and this cache. I parked at the Vietnam veterans memorial, and I couldn't get any closer to the cache in November with many of the roads closed. I had done my research, and knew I could get to the cache from that parking area. Found the proper trail to it with little difficulty. Once on site, I found it surpisngly quckly. Are they like pimping this cache at the park HQ? Because there are a lot of unlogged on here finders. Bon Echo isn't even the last finder, Snowman257, whom I've heard of on Geocaching.com, but have never met, was the last finder, about a week after Bon Echo in August. I left my phone (camera) in the car, but I had to have a DudleyGrunt wooden Nickel! I left a dollar for it. Awesone location in the woods, thanks for the cache!

Headed south of the border again this weekend (well, actually a lot more east and just a bit south) but this time it was adults only, no kids (first time in 8 years that we've been able to say that). We traveled to the Finger Lakes area to enjoy a romantic anniversary weekend - by romantic, I mean stopping to find caches, garage sales, thrift shops, driving secondary highways, stuff like that.

After visiting the virtual , we took the long way around on the Forestry Trail to get to this one. That's what I get for not having the trail map. I have to say that this cache is in amazing condition for not being found in 3 years, although the tree that is hiding the cache is slowly sinking it down into the ground and it took a little digging and a bit of tugging to extract the cache. A nicely stocked ammo can full of new swag, now that is a rare find! We had nothing to trade and so we traded nothing. Didn't realize this cache is supposed to have a GeoKret, didn't notice it but might have overlooked it. ps I think I signed the log book as 15-aug-15 but it was definitely the 16th when we visited. Not that it matter much.

In the end, we found 6 OCNA caches (and dnf'd two), also visited the oldest geocache in the state and picked up two other gc.com caches plus a few qualifiers for some TerraCaching locationless caches. A good weekend all around. Thanks Sabrefan7 for supplying 5 of the 6 OCNA caches that we found this weekend.

I suppose I won't log DNF. I found myself within about 330 feet of it, but I supsect I was on the wrong trail, and I was already on the way back to the car, after hearing my kid wanted to be picked up from Darien Lake earlier than I expected. I shall return. Maybe from that trail, or I'll see which one I'm actually supposed to be on. Tongue out
