Description EN

As I start to get into Munzee a little, I think I'm going to throw out a BIT cache or two when I deploy Munzees. So here's a magnetic BIT on the opposite side of the footbridge from a Munzee in Ellicott Creek County Park in Tonawanda, N.Y.

I grew up in the City of Tonawanda, and this was on the way to Grandmother's house, which was at the corner of Sweet Home Road and North French in Amherst (now a First Niagara Bank). I seem to remember this bridge being built in the early 1970's, although I could be wrong.

I think you'll find the logging code funny, if you're from the area. Have fun. The hint should be a dead give-away, should you need it. And cap those Munzees!

Note: On June 11th, 2015, Avery Gardner, aged 16, of Lockport, N.Y., struck her head on this bridge in a freak boating accident, and later died of her injuries. This cache has been renamed in her honor.
