six-pac: Looks like someone or something needed the cache contents more than the container. This one had a decent run, but it's time to shut it down and open up this great area for another hide.

Geocache Description:

Coordinates are for Stage One. The hike to the cache is .48 miles and will take only 15 minutes. The hide is easy, but there are a lot of briars at GZ. This is a great hike for small folks as well as nature challenged people. There is a clear and level path along the Hammer creek for most of the way and at the end you get to climb 20 feet in 75. The only real challenge here is extracting the cache from the last 15 feet of the hike.

The cache name comes from a Japanese manga story about a Samurai named Ogami Itto who lived during Tokugawa era of Japanese history. As the story goes, Ogami was set up by the leader of the Yagyu clan in order to seize Ogami's post for them themselves. Ogami's wife and her maidens were murdered, but the assassins missed his one year old son Daigoro.

Ogami gave Daigoro a choice. He placed a ball and a sword in front of him. If he chose the ball, his father would kill him, sending him to be with his mother; however, the child crawled toward the sword, and reached for its hilt. This signified that he would take the path of a ronin - a masterless samurai. This assassin-for-hire team would later become known as Lone Wolf and Cub. Their vow was to eventually destroy the Yagyu clan and avenge Ogami's wife and his disgrace.

This cache is in the same general area that the original Wolf Cache (GC48FB) was located in. The name came from the nearby Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania and sometimes you can hear the wolves. If you are interested in touring the sanctuary before or after you do the cache, you can make arrangements through their website.

The twist is that it is now a multi cache. Stage one (Daigoro) will give coordinates to the final stage (Ogami). The finale stage is a large ammo box.

The cache contains some new SWAG including the following:

  • 1 Franklin Little League baseball
  • 1 bag of assorted Stickers
  • 4 mini-cans of Play-Doh
  • 1 Silly Putty Egg
  • 1 Jam'n Tunes Harmonica (Makes Beautiful Music!)
  • 1 Survival Tool (includes a whistle, compass, thermometer, magnifying glass, red led light, signal mirror, and lanyard)
  • 1 Squad of Army Men
  • 1 Herd of Dinosaurs


Final Stage Puzzle:
Use the sign at Stage One
First date = ABCD
Second date = EFGH
Third Date = IJKM
Street Number = NOP
X= F-C
Y= C-N
Z= B-P

NJ EX.IPG / DBM YK.EZH

The SWAG is not the graetest stuff on earth, but please trade even or up and enjoy the hike!
