Thanks for the experience. I learned a lot. It was a beautiful day to this. I looked in the final spot for the log book, but it seems to be missing. With the amount of muggles about I'm not surprised.

We had tried this cartridge with our original Garmin Oregon several times and we just couldn't make it work. We got a refurished Oregon and it seemed to work better so we finally got this DNF off our list. Thanks.

I have been waiting to do this one ever since I finished the Buffalo Naval Park Wherigo Cache. I was a little worried when I arrived this afternoon and found that the Marine Park was packed with people. As it turned out I had no trouble playing the game and learning a great deal in the process. I did have one unfortunate problem though, when I got to the final I found that I could not retrieve the cache to sign the log. Just my luck that they set up the beer tent right next to the final, I decided to look for the cache any ways and had spotted its hiding spot when I noticed the grill chef watching me every now and then. I thought I would still give it a shot when the Event Security started patrolling in the area so I decided for the sake of the cache I would wait until the next time I am in Buffalo to retrieve the cache to sign the log.

Great job on this one, Mick. We came downtown for a special dinner today, so I figured this would be a great opportunity to play this WHERIGO activity, and take a tour of the Commercial Slip area while down here. Knowing the problems now with the Garmin 450T shutting down during these WHERIGO's, we got smart, and saved the activity after each completed zone. This way we were able to quickly reload the saved game and continue on. We learned lots of neat facts about the area's development through your cartridge. We had no problem locating the final cache at the end. Thanks for all the work you put into this one, and by making it so interesting to go through!

Completed this with my sister, but the completion code isn't being accepted for some reason. Maybe I wrote it down wrong :(
