Pofe: Greetings from Geocaching.com

I have been looking at caches in the area that have been temporarily disabled for a while now and it looks like your cache has been under the weather for some time. While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for you and block other cachers from entering the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time I don’t think we can do so any longer. Therefore, I have archived this cache. If you haven’t done so already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible.

When repairs to this cache are completed and it is time to have it reposted, it will be no problem. Just drop me a note and let me know the GC waypoint number of the cache or better yet, the URL of the cache page. You will still be able to access your cache page just as before by going to your “My Cache Page” and clicking the link of your cache.

I will be more than happy to take a look at your cache again to see if it is still is within the guidelines of the Geocaching.com website for cache placement and posting.

I want to thank you for the time that you have taken to contribute to geocaching in the past and am looking forward to seeing your cache up and running in the future.

Thanks,

Geocache Description:

Your hunting a magnetic micro cache. No further clues should be needed. Bring a pen or pencil!!

For those of you wondering, and I am sure it is a bunch of you, Suckers Hole refers to the FISHING. Please remove your mind from the gutter. Thank You.

If you look down over the bank you will be looking into what we affectionately called "Suckers Hole" when we were kids. My wife grew up on this street. The large abandoned stone building used to be an old mill, and I think the ground level floor housed a butcher at one time.

The road, "Plain Hill RD", Refers to an Inclined Plain that was on the canal at this point. From the Encylopaedia Brittanica:

In the 18th century, inclined planes were
constructed to transport small boats on
trucks between adjacent pounds, using
animal power and gravity and, later,
steam. A series of planes was built in
the United States on the canal between
the Delaware and Hudson rivers to transport
80-ton vessels in caissons"

This spot was one of such sites on the Morris Canal. Also, listed in the National Register of Historical Places as:
