7/24/02: I've replaced this NaviCache after it was either vandalized or removed by grass-cutters. The river name does end in an "e" and the NaviCache is in a slight, covered cavity that shouldn't be affected by future grasscutters. I've put a U.S. flag on the NaviCache with the words: "Be an American, not a thief".

Maps are queued for generation.

This is an attempt to introduce Upstate NY to NaviCaching & I can't think of a better place than the small town where I went to high school. The real Emma A is a family friend & ironically, her namesake plays a role in this 2-part NaviCache.

From the starting co-ordinates, note Emma A's final day (mmddyyyy) & the highway number (nn) behind you. Be prepared to do some letter/number transformation on the name of the river in front of you where A=1, B=2, ..., Z=26. You'll work with the Clues to determine the 2nd co-ordinates, i.e. the NaviCache.

Besides the usual logbook, camera & goodies, this NaviCache contains a "hitch hiker" named Squeeky (since moved to a NaviCache in Massena, NY). Please exchange an item of equal value with one in the NaviCache & post below what you swapped.

Enjoy & start a NaviCache of your own!
