2nd Oldest NYC Cache about to go

Postby addisonbr » Mon Mar 08, 2010 8:55 am

is the second oldest active cache in New York City, listed in July 2001. Only the infamous is older (by four days). They are the only two active NYC caches that were placed in 2001 or earlier.

Although it's only fair to note that "active" doesn't describe Vanny Cache very well... It's been a ghost of itself for quite some time. It hasn't been found since 2008, and by all accounts the tree that it was once located in has been more or less destroyed for much of that time. The cache owner hasn't recorded a find since 2005, and hasn't logged into the site in over a year. The listing was finally mercifully reported to New York Admin, and barring the unexpected, Vanny Cache will soon be able to happily rest in peace.

Near as I can tell, the next oldest cache is in Queens by Alan2, listed almost a year later in mid-2002. Alan is of course an active member of the community so there's probably a lot of life left in this one.

Though I've never gone to find it, when we first started caching almost 5 years ago, I remember it was the only cache in Van Cortlandt Park and stayed as such for years until KVPhoto got into the game and added some there, and I had wondered why for so long it was the only cache in such a vast park.

Maybe we should do a search for the Vanny Cache event......... just like with gerk's search for 4quA5.

I commute to Queens from Rockland a few days a week. While I haven't been in that park since my cross country running days in high school, I drive through it on the thruway/parkways all the time. I could easily make a point of going there.

So, if the cache is MIA, and the owner is MIA, what next? I take it that we, as the local geocaching community, are interested in keeping the local old caches going, right? So what do we do? What are we allowed to do?

[EDIT:I just reread the OP. "happily" laid to rest seems to indicate that your thread was actually just letting us know the status of the cache and not some sort of call to action to do something about it, or was it? I'd be party to doing something about it if was okay to TPTB]

You don't have to pour out the whole forty! There's a recession going on!

Wow, this one cache in VCP for years and years and now thanks to Gerk we almost have "saturation" :lol: (just kidding, thanks for all the great new hides in there......)

You're welcome, Harry (and everyone). It did come at a small cost... my kids now hate "bushwacking", as we got caught in some thorns taking a few "shortcuts". I had to promise them BIG TIME goodies.

Looking back at our logs from almost five years ago, it wasn't in great condition even then. And the hike made Andy Bear very grumpy!
