Stopped into Forest Lawn lokoing to do the two alt-site virtuals (this one on OCNA and the Millard Fillmore virtual on Terracaching.com) and find a few of the several letterboxes. We managed to get the virtuals and two letterboxes before being escorted off the property. Seriously. Turns out the gate gates closed and LOCKED at 5 pm on Saturday, and it was about 20 after 5 when an employee found us and (nicely) escorted us to and unlocked the gate so we could leave. After that we made our way to the Church of the Nativity in Tonawanda to watch the GIFF movies. Was hoping to maybe run into the OCNA webmaster there and maybe to meet you as well, but looks like both parties were no-shows. Or maybe you were there and haven;t logged it yet. Funny how noone at geocaching events talks to anyone else unless they already know them. I've been to 26 geocaching events and find them to be the most awkward gatherings. Letterboxers on the other hand, now they know how to say hi to the new people. Anyway, I'm off topic. Thanks for the virtual, hope to get back to the buffalo soon and get some more of those  alt-caches.

Thanks for the caches, Frank! There could actually be several Virtuals in Forest Lawn, I may or may not do that. I had heard of Red Jacket, but all these years, I never looked into the history behind the man. Very interesting. I also never really noticed his memorial. Nor that the Inkwells cache requires you to get information from his memorial to find their tunnel cache. Not that I'm ever going in there. So I stopped by here before starting a little Munzee run. Which I gave up on after about 15 minutes, too cold! I'll come back later to finish those. We at OCUS (and Terracaching.com) are generally good with a "gps picture" for solo cachers, but after several failed tries, I was able to get a self-portrait in scary winter garb. Tongue out
