Geocache Description:

This is a letterbox dedicated to fellow Staten Island geocacher ukipiper! The cache is not at the posted coordinates! The posted coordinates will lead you to the grave of a well known Staten Islander!

When ukipiper first started and DawnAIC and I were finding his clever hides it took me awhile to realize I actually knew ukipiper from work; his response was basically 'I figured out you were Chris Saves awhile ago, I just forgot to tell you...' •_•

Ha, anyway, after finally figuring out I worked with him we've gone on some really awesome geocaching adventures together (including riding around Central Park with him to find Bridges & Arches for his 1,000th find!) and he's continued putting out lots of excellent caches on Staten Island! Since uki is a cemetery fanatic you'll have to visit the graveyard in order to find this letterbox!

The coordinates will lead you to the grave of well known Staten Islander Father Vincent Capodanno and his parents Vincent and Rachel. Father Capodanno was a United States Navy chaplain who was killed on September 4th, 1967 while serving in the Vietnam War. He was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, and in 1974 Seaside Boulevard was renamed in his honor to Father Capodanno Boulevard, along with a monument at the corner of Father Capodanno & Midland Ave.

TO FIND THE LETTERBOX FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS! Find Father Capodanno's grave (posted coordinates, I suggest entering the cemetery from Tyler Ave. Also please respect the cemetery during your visit!) and take down the following information:

Vincent: 18AB - 19CD

Rachel: 18EF - 19GH

Fr. Vincent: 19IJ - 19KL

N40 37.(B minus H)LH

W74 7.CH(D minus J)


...this is also a Cache of the Dead, BEWARE...
