Cross listed on geocaching.com. This is the original version of this cache. Geocaching.com would not publish the first waypoint because of proximity issues. Navicache.com is not as strict about these issues. Therefore, the version of this cache that is posted on geocaching.com is slightly different. It starts with the second waypoint.




Multi-cache located near the site of the Old Erie Canal Lock in Pittsford, New York. Per trail rules, caching is only allowed during the day light hours.

I have been taking American Sign Language Classes for the last year through Deaf Works. I am currently enrolled in ASL for Beginners: Level Four, which meets at the Barnes and Nobles in Pittsford on Tuesday nights. For the past sixteen weeks, I have been trying to explain the concept of geocaching to my classmates and instructor. This has proven to be challenging because my ASL skills are limited at best. Furthermore, I have a difficult time explaining geocaching in my native language (English). Trying to explain the concept in ASL has added a new level of difficulty. After trying to explain geocaching to one of my classmates, she exclaimed (in ASL of course!) "Geo-What? I Don't Understand!" Therefore, I decided that the best way to describe geocaching to my classmates/instructor was to create a cache in their honor and to have them find it. And it also gave me an excuse to put out another cache!).

This multi-cache is located near an abandoned Lock (Lock 62) of the Erie Canal. Both portions of the cache have been well camouflaged in order to protect against muggles. There is a small "twist" along the way, but I donít think it will trip you up too much. For some however, this cache may require two trips (but then again...most caches seem to take two trips in my experience). Please watch small children/animals in this area. I would not want anyone to fall into the water (especially since the actual Lock is full of garbage--sad sight). The remainder of the cache takes you on a tour of the beautiful (and hidden) trail that runs through the area. I love paths like the Greenway and this trail (although short) is similar. My favorite part about geocaching is hiking through areas that I might not have visited otherwise. Take time to find a hiking stick, look at the weeds (or herbs--as I'm told), and watch the birds. In honor of this cache, I have left one of my handcrafted hiking staves near a tree that is close to the "Lock 62 Sign" at the trail head. Please feel free to use this hiking stick if you canít find one of your own. If you do use it, please leave it in the same spot for the next cacher. Finally, this is a dog friendly cache; so bring along your pooch.

Didn't realize this was cross-listed. Really enjoyed this one, and enjoyed remembering it (posting the find here on 30 Nov 09).

I totally agree with the rest of the Breakfast Club, this was a great cache to do after breakfast today with the group. And the fact that Caterpillar and J-Dog were already there made it even better. Kinda weird to me, because the most hidden and smallest of the waypoints ended up being the one we struggled with the least (not saying we didn't struggle there some too!). I am glad I had read the cache description enough times that it actually sunk in and I even did a little homework beforehand. We had alot of fun and got to enjoy alot of conversations because it took us so long. Having Caterpillar along to help us "blind" folks helped alot. Found the final at 11:35AM, took us just a bit under 2 hours. Thanks J-dog!
