The 5th cache in Amherst's Nature View Park, a little known 1264 Acre undeveloped park, slightly larger than Chestnut Ridge Park, believe it or don't.

Although parking on a public street in Amherst (Phillip Drive) is very much legal, and there is a clearly marked trailhead into the park at the dead-end, the residents of this quiet dead-end street (Phillip Drive) are not used to strangers parking in front of their houses to accesss the park; please be as discrete as possible.

Did I mention you should park on Phillip Drive? Please try to park a little ways down from the dead-end, to avoid everyone parking in front of the same two houses at the dead-end. No matter where you park on Phillip Drive, I highly recommend you waypoint your vehicle, as you will be traveling on a maze of unmarked ATV trails.

This is a 2-leg multi cache, the first leg being a micro, the final a larger container hidden in typical geocaching fashion. Both legs are not far from trails. Stay on the trails until it is absolutely necessary to bushwack, don't even think about bushwacking otherwise.

The goofy cache name is a line from an old Seinfeld episode (with sound intro by Kosmo Kramer), and will give you a clue as to the type of container you are looking for on the final leg.

ATV trails in the park are eternally muddy, I recommend rubber boots all times of the year. Round trip distance is slightly less than 1 mile, as the crow flies.

I don't recommend this cache for Travel Bugs, as I expect finders to be few and far between, after the initial new cache rush.
