Geocache Description:


WELCOME TO THE OCATT!

'OCATT' stands for
Old
Croton
Aqueduct
Tribute
Trail

This is a tribute trail for all geocachers who live and/or geocache within the confines of Westchester County in the great state of New York! This series spans over 30 miles, from Croton’s Reservoir Dam to NYC’s High Bridge. Please read the following information to ensure a positive experience with your journey.

***************************************************************
All caches are accessible during any season and they are physically located along, but not on, the actual OCA.
***************************************************************
Each geocache in this series was placed with utmost respect to the OCA, nearby home owners, and the potential for muggles.
***************************************************************
The trail is generally a 1.5 (flat/unpaved) terrain, although the listed ratings are adjusted based on how difficult it will be once you break away from it.
***************************************************************
Should you journey the OCA in its entirety, you will be presented with a generous blend of rural, suburban, and urban developments.
***************************************************************
All containers, aside from a select few that happen to be custom fabrications, are micro test tubes. None are simply placed for all to see; every container has been handled with special care, hidden and camouflaged as a traditional geocache.
***************************************************************
If you are looking for a quick P&G numbers crunch like other mega-series runs, this isn't it.
***************************************************************
Should you find difficulty in your search, I have provided a hint to be used at your own discretion for each listing, although you are encouraged to do without it.
***************************************************************
To extract the log from each geocache container, you will need to use a pair of tweezers or needle-nose pliers.
***************************************************************
There may be thorns in some places, as well as the potential for ticks in a few others, so it is recommended to come prepared.
***************************************************************
Everything within the standard Groundspeak Disclaimer applies here.
***************************************************************
This is a very long trail with multiple parking options, so you are on your own for the most part. Depending on the listing I will do my best to advise where exactly to go, although the preferred option is to travel as much of it as you can without driving to each intersection.
***************************************************************
Be sure to check out other caches nearby this trail, as there are many that will be worth your while.
***************************************************************

GOOD LUCK

BACMAC

Husband/Wife team from Northern Westchester. Caching since June 2007, this duo developed a quick reputation for achieving lightning-speed FTF's (over 150 when this was placed... wow!). Wait too long, and as they say here, you'll be "bacmac'd". So guess who got "Site #1" for what was formerly the Geo Jamboree this year in 2011? In addition to being the master of local FTF's, they have also developed a wide array of geocaches around Westchester County and are very active within the local geocaching community here in the LoHud. So this one is for you, bacmac! It is the first OCATT cache placed, the first description typed, and the first one in the entire trail, right in your backyard. Thank you for all your contributions! I hope you get first to find!
