Correction to the last entry. That was Cayuga Lake State Park, not Seneca. I'm not from the area, and got it confused with the town of Seneca Falls which is nearby.

This is funny! Until yesterday I had no idea what "Geocache" was, I don't have a GPS, and have never participated in the activity.

I was simply walking my dog in Seneca Lake State park, and came across a metal box in the snow. I think it said "308 Caliber Ammunition" on the side, so I thought at first a hunter misplaced his bullet box and left it there. Or, perhaps a discarded empty.

Just before picking it up to open the lid, I moved the cache a bit with my shoe. But then I noticed the green label on the other side, and I thought it said "GeoTest, Do Not Disturb". So then I thought it was a seismograph that was being monitored by some scientific or government agency.

But then I noticed it really said GeoCache, and I mistook the symbol on the label as the one for Biological Hazard. Bewildered, I panacked and immediately backed up and walked away thinking it might be a bomb or something bad, like nerve gas. And if the park office would have been manned, I would have reported it!

Upon returning home I Googled "geocache", and the rest is history, because as you can see I now I have an account with this forum and with www.geocaching.com. Thanks for making my first Geocaching experience a memorable one. Now that I know what it is (i.e. without fear of being blown up or gassed), I will return, open it and sign the log!

Thanks again !

I have decided to retire this cache there is a good chance it is missing but I was not impressed with the last log on GC. The logger walked out to the cache inside the tracks and the train needed to warn him.

This one may be under water at this time. The lake is very high. We'll try again when things dry out a bit.

First off, let us just say to everyone who goes after us, You are Welcome! Ok, now we'll explain. We parked at the given location. Crossing over the bridges was interesting. We found the cache spot and it seemed we couldn't get 2 minutes alone to look for it. Jet skiers kept buzzing through, then some couple in a boat decide to stop and take a break. Now things get a little gross. Someone had used the cache location as there bathroom. As it turned out, they took a number 2 almost on the cache itself! Well we looked every else at first hoping that really wasn't the spot. Oh no, that was the spot! So we got a large stick and pushed away the crappola, plus the socks they wiped with. At last we got the cache! We took the nice Flashlight and left a Coleman Poncho. Just as we hid the cache, 2 kayakers come up. The one said, hey are these your socks in the water, I can get them for you? Of coarse we answerd, NO, No, no! Must say we had one great adventure today! Thanks Wheelgood Team

Torrid trek. First hot day of summer. Upon reaching the cache, found myself between a rock and a hard place. Signed the log, took some photos, left nothing. On the way back met a bow fisherman, named Greg, who was shooting carp.

9th of 9 finds today Found at 6:30 PM
Nice walk on a real nice day to finish up another day of caching. Real peaceful out there. Lots of fisherman along the way. Some at each of the 1st 3 bridges. Was worried there would be some at the cache location that would hinder looking for the cache. There wasnít. Guess itís farther than they want to walk. Spent about 5 minutes looking before finding the cache. Real good hiding spot. Signed log, took/left nothing. Thanks for the hide.

Our 8th and final cache for the day. What a great hide to end the day with. Found it at 4:35PM. Walk was longer than we had anticipated and we were under a time constraint, but we did it anyways and luckily didn't take long to discover the cache's hiding spot (good observations on Bill's part). Got back home to Fairport just in time.

Took 5-pack jumbo dice, left 10 pack regular dice and lei.

Thanks for another great adventure!

Found it at 12:05 pm. Took over an hour to find the parking spot since we logged the wrong coords into the GPS to start. After a lot of backtracking we found the right parking area and headed to the cache. Took nothing, left nothing. Thanks for getting onto this area of the lake.

Wow...had a good hike today. Clever hiding place - it took me a while. Went in where you did - got to cross all 3 bridges . Like an amateur going out...like a peo coming back .
Took cable ties to help me assemble travel bugs and left a first aid kit. Will post bridge pictures when I get them developed...no digital camera yet. Thanks for the nice cache. Hope you enjoyed your stay at Cayuga Lake State Park.

Boy, was it hot. It was a nice walk, though. What a clever hiding spot! Took some tatoos for the kids, left a pretty notebook.
