Hidden over two years ago, not found in over a year. But I'll tell you what, this BIT Cache is in pristine condition. It's under tree cover, but I'm still totally shocked at how brand new looking it is. Back in the day, I had them printed at Kinkos (and it's much larger than my newer BIT Caches, probably double the size), and I had them machine laminated there at Kinkos too. Come and get it!

3413.  Stopped by here on may way from Lockwood to Niagara area.  No one was around and I was able to leave my car and make the find in just a few minutes.

Thanks and Happy Trails!

I was out on a Black Friday Opencaching Bomb today. Ended up driving a lot more and not getting as many finds as I intended.  But it was a great day to be outside and not at Toys r Us at 4:30 am . Laughing  Arrived here just as the sun was beginning to set for the day. Followed my compass to the GZ and soon spotted the game piece. Its in very good shape still. Im sure no one has noticed it that isn't looking for it. Thanks for another cool BIT cache in a restful spot. SF7

We are in this area on a mini vacation at Niagara Falls. Of course with vacation comes caching. This was the second of nine OCUS caches today in the area. This was my third BITcache. Fortunately I walked right up to this one. TFTC

By golly, I thought for sure I'd be the first one here. Busy place today. I wasn't sure what size cache I was looking for, but I spotted it from a short distance after maybe a 10 minute search. My GPS read 15' at GZ.

I visited this cemetery about 10 years ago while conducting genealogy research. It was nice to make a return visit today. Thanks!

Yikes, I think it took me about 10 minutes to find this one! Having seen one of these just a few days ago, I knew what I was looking for. Having said that, I was thinking I was looking for something bigger for some reason.<br /> <br /> Coords are pretty good too. I had 11' as I was scanning the cache. Very nice little well maintained cemetery here. And there's pretty good cell reception too so I can log this from my car. Nicely done, sir. TFTC.

We woke up this morning and started our morning ritual of coffee and internet surfing.  Imagine our suprise when our e-mail account contained notification of a new opencache only 3 miles away from our place.  And that's country miles, so in city terms that might as well be 2 blocks.  Read up on what we needed to do in order to log a bit cache and then Mrs. Inkwell sent me on my way.

We've driven past this place many times over the years and yes, the view is something special here.  Once I pulled into the cemetery, I made the short walk to find the tag.  We will never talk smack about your antiquated GPS unit, as when we were standing with tag in hand, our GPS read 4'.  I do have a picture to prove it, but unfortunately, the SD card in our new camera isn't compatable with this laptop.  Weird. 

So after recording the password, I took a stroll around this marvelous cemetery, snapping photos like a madman.  I would venture a guess that this is the largest collection of 1850's grave stones in all of Niagara County.  It's really quite amazing.  The artwork on some of them has stood the test of time and is really quite impressive. I noticed a lot of familiar Cambria family names throughout this place.  Kroening, Hill and McCollum to name a few.

Thanks for placing this cache!  This whole bit caching thing is pretty cool.

Escarpment? Check. Heavy tree cover? Check. 2004 Garmin Model? Check. If I'm lucky my coordinates are within 30 feet. Feel free to post better ones with a modern tool.
