Geocache Description:

This is New York's first Augmented Reality (AR) geocache! And is one of the first 50 AR caches in the world. The cache is not at the posted coordinates.

Young Billy, the bison tube, is lost! Can you help him find his mother? You can complete the AR experience from anywhere and will be rewarded with the coordinates to the cache upon completion.

The cache itself is a small, rectangular lock & lock style container. This cache is NOT available at all times and a sign at the trailhead states that the trail is open during daylight hours only. There is a letterbox nearby so be sure you're finding the cache and not the letterbox. I did see some poison ivy in the area of GZ so I would suggest wearing pants if you're allergic.

You will need to use an android or Apple phone to complete this cache. This Augmented Reality experience can be played using the Metaverse app which you can find here at the links below for your corresponding device.

Android | iOS

To take part in this Augmented Reality experience and to find the associated geocache, scan the following code or click on the link, both of which will launch this Augmented Reality (AR) experience in the Metaverse app. Or you can search for Help Billy or GC7R1C9 in the Metaverse app.

This cache is part of an experiment that allows the use of Augmented Reality (AR) apps to find the cache. At the end of this experiment, Geocaching HQ will decide if this cache will be grandfathered or archived. Geocaching HQ reserves the right to archive this cache at any time if conditions change. If you have found this cache and would like to give feedback on your experience, please fill out this survey.
