Description:

A small, unnamed creek (as far as I can tell) tumbles over several small cascades on it's way to Lake Erie. This is a .6 mile round trip in a nice area, although slighty defiled by teen partiers.

The strange cache name comes from two sources. First, The container once belonged to HuckleBuckle (AKA the original messed up clown). It was used for his cache Right on Target hidden behind the Target Store on Milestrip Road. This was a De Facto parking lot cache, most likely thrown a few feet into the woods out the window of a moving vehicle. When Target underwent a large expansion, the area where the cache was located was closed off for about 6 months, and the cache archived. Working in the neighborhood like I do, I recovered it when the construction was completed.

Secondly, there was another cache in this general area, Victorians Secret Cache. This was placed in 2006 by a gentleman who only found 4 caches, and placed only that one, and hasn't logged into the website in almost two years, as of the date of this cache placement. The cache name came from the fact that the street Victorian Drive is near the cache (although I don't believe you can park there to access the area). Finding that cache wasn't this cache owners first introduction to this cool area though. I remember my 8th grade Science class taking a field trip to this area to find fossils in the late 1970's! As you may or may not know, the exposed shale in the Town of Hamburg is chock full of fossils.

Parking coordinates supplied below are for the Robin Lane Dead End. Walk South towards the creek to access the trails. This is Hamburg Town property on both sides of the Creek, and is well used by the local residents, including teen partiers and paintball players, as mentioned before. You're looking for a good-sized plastic screw top container, wrapped in camo tape. Unlike it's first life as a cache, it contains a baggie for the logbook, and writing utensils. Plenty of room for TB's.

Ok, that's it, I'm retired. Ba-Dee Ba-Dee Ba-Dee That's all folks.
