I found it! 28 Apr 2011    Lions, Tigers And Bears...Oh My!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Chaperoning son's field trip here, so of course I had to log this find! The polar bear display is a little different, with two large stuffed polar bears instead of the one found in some of these posts.

Unfortunately, I didn't have a camera, and none of my fellow moms was handy with a camera at GZ. I did got one of the other moms to take a picture of my son and I at the sign post near the gift shop, and I'll post that picture as soon as she sends it to me.


I found it! 23 Nov 2010    Portly Gentleman  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Came back today with a camera and a buddy to take the picture. Also visited a cache at the lighthouse museum. Even though the museum is closed on Tuesdays, they were dressing out the lighthouse in Christmas lights, and we were invited by museum staff to come on up to the lighthouse crown and hear it's history. TFTF.

  cameraMe and the Portly Gentleman

I couldn 16 Nov 2010    Black Bridge Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Found GZ, but no cache. Should be disabled/archived?

Note 13 Nov 2010    Portly Gentleman  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Made a Charlotte run for Navicaches today, but forgot my camera. The Portly Gentleman is still there, so I'll just have to come back another day to claim credit for this one.

I found it! 30 Oct 2010    Issaquah In Egypt/Mayonnaise Jar 2  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

My German Excange daughter spotted this before me. She wants you to know that "everything was grabbing" her. (The underbrush) TFTF.

I found it! 28 Oct 2010    Beechwood Trails  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Cache needs a new logbook, but is otherwise in fine shape. TFTF.

I found it! 07 Oct 2010    Cabin Fever?  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

What a pleasant surprise to find this is cross-listed!

I found it! 03 Oct 2010    Chim Chimeny (Chimney Bluff Earthcache)  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2.5 )

I knew this was a crossover cache (on both services), but I wish I had looked for the Navicache only caches too. Missed an opportunity. Stunning views all the way up from the west parking lot. Strong winds told us just how these features were created. TFTF.

I found it! 02 Oct 2010    HOGS BACK VISTAS  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Happy to find this as part of the days adventures at Letchworth Fall Gathering

I found it! 28 Sept 2010    Durand Discovery 1  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Last place I looked, and last place left to look, since I didn't seek them in the order presented in the description.

It's been more than 3 years since this hide was last found but it is in excellent shape... clean, dry, lots of room in the logbook. I left a pathtag, as it was all I had with me, and took some sort of trackable coin... at least I think it's trackable. TFTF.

I found it! 20 Sept 2010    Ghost's Revenge!  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Yes, it really has been 4 years, 4 months and 20 days since anyone found this cache. JAKKTeam was the last to sign the logbook before me. We didn't know each other then, but he and I are good friends now. TFTF.

I found it! 20 Sept 2010    Ghost's Domain  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

I expected to see a few log entries from August 2010, because GeoRoc picnic was so close, but the last signature before mine was back in April. Log was a bit damp, but would take pencil, and pages didn't stick together, so I could write my name in. TFTF.

I found it! 17 Sept 2010    Cracker-Barrel Keepsake  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Listed as under new management on the other site. Glad to have visited this one. It has been on my to-do list for a very long time.

I found it! 29 Jul 2010    Geodecache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

Spent an afternoon in Northhampton Park, and picked this one up. TFTF!
[Modified 2010-08-01 22:16:09]

I found it! 21 May 2010    Splish, Splash  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Took three seperate visits to score this find. Log a bit damp, but otherwise fine. TFTF.

I found it! 11 May 2010    Earth Day Celebration '02  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

This cache is alive and well and happy.

I found it! 28 Apr 2010    It's Gotta Go Somewhere  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

Exceptional day for caching. Field of trillium in bloom. Took pictures. TFTF

I found it! 25 Apr 2010    Cache KaBoom  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2.5 )

Hide me stumped through several visits, but today was the day I logged it!

I found it! 23 Apr 2010    Rocky Adventure by The Wheelygood Team  ( Difficulty: 4    Terrain: 2.5 )

Good hide

Note 20 Apr 2010    Warning (I Shall Wear Purple)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

This cache was recently retired from "the other service" and a new cache was placed not far away. I suspect this needs to be archived here as well.

I found it! 19 Apr 2010    The Great Genesee River Deer Run  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Wanted to do this since last year. Finally got around to it.

Note 26 Mar 2010    Catch the Ketch - Rochester Visitor's Info North  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Log entry was deleted.

I found it! 26 Mar 2010    qui est cache`?  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

Thanks for the cache. Never been to this park before today, as I am from the east side of the city.

[Modified 2010-09-28 20:42:18]

I found it! 20 Mar 2010    No Compromise No. 1  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Nice day for a find

I found it! 18 Mar 2010    Issaquah Saw A Deer  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Missed this on the first two tries. Scored on the third attempt.

I found it! 06 Dec 2009    Crescent Hill  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

Always nice to find an oldy! Recently visited before us, too, but probably only logged on the other service.

I found it! 28 Nov 2009    Scrawny's spot!  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2 )

Part of my "best day ever" (14 finds - single day PR after caching over a year). Not much of a geopile to hide it, but far enough away from trails that that doesn't matter much. TFTF.

I found it! 27 Nov 2009    Blue Blazes  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Part of a very nice day of caching in Black Creek Park. TFTF.

I found it! 27 Nov 2009    Cherry  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Part of a very nice day of caching, although it did rain intermittantly on us. TFTF

I found it! 21 Nov 2009    Indian Falls  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Sad that so few folks use this service. Last find was over a year ago. Great hiding spot though. I removed some moldy stuff inside, but the cache is in good shape all-in-all. TFTF.

I found it! 21 Nov 2009    Cacher's Cache Can  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

For reasons I'm not sure I can explain, this was a hard cache for me to find. I visited this site numerous times, without success. I don't think it's especially winter accessible, and I did search several times while snow was on the ground, but that doesn't explain all the misses after winter had passed. Well, today was my lucky day!

I found it! 17 Oct 2009    Letchworth Fall Gathering VIII  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Wonderful event!

I found it! 17 Oct 2009    What's the Point  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Part of our Fall Gathering activities. TFTF

I found it! 09 Oct 2009    Tamarck Swamp Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

Got this on the second try. Guess I didn't log it at the time, so I'm catching up now (entry on 28 Sept 2010)

I found it! 06 Oct 2009    Orient Express  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 3 )

Very wild territory for a public park. Long neglected, which makes it a great spot for a cache!

I found it! 07 Sept 2009    Bathing with the Devil Earthcache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Found this (or rather, did what was required to get credit for this Earthcache) while out on a TazD series multi. TFTF.

I found it! 12 Jul 2009    Henpecked  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Found Henpecked in a huge patch of black raspberries. Spent the rest of the walk back to my car filling my hat with ripe raspberries and came back the next day for more! I didn't even mind the ever-present poison ivy!

I found it! 05 Jul 2009    Electric Boardwalk  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Found it on date noted... didn't log (on this service) until May 7, 2010 when I compared finds on both systems!

Note 05 Jul 2009    Electric Boardwalk  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Log entry was deleted.

I couldn 03 Jun 2009    Don't Jump Again  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

Harefoot and I went after this one today but came up empty.

I found it! 15 May 2009    Valley Of The Inukshuk  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 4.5 )

Daughter and I ventured to do this one together. Displaced a wild turkey when we got to the valley. Not much evidence of Inukshuks, however. Some piles that might have been once, but since dismantled? Cache was well camoflaged but we found it. And then we had an Inukshuk building contest! Scrambled up the hill just before dusk settled in.

I found it! 11 May 2009    The Orc's Treasure  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 4.5 )

Completed the cave on Sunday with a friend of the family and my two daughters (11 and 16 - CupieDoll and Hakaishi) and go the key, but don't have time to prowl around for the cache proper.

Hakaishi and I came back today. It might have taken us only 15 minutes, but we took a wrong turn and spent nearly 2 hours on and around GZ. Just before I scored the cache I scrambled through a patch of poison ivy - my worst enemy. (Hint: if you find a large patch of poison ivy, you've climbed too high.)

Dropped Lord of the Caches geocoin (TB2339P)... I've been holding it all winter waiting for this find... mission accomplished!

I found it! 18 Apr 2009    Iroquois Transplanted  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Finally decided to stop at the Nature Center. No trouble finding it.

I found it! 17 Apr 2009    Wadham's Walk  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Took this one the hard way. Started out on the wrong side of the swamp, coming from another cache, so had to walk all the way up to Wadham's Pavilion and in again on the right side. TFTF.

I found it! 11 Apr 2009    Joannes Trek  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

One of four caches that day, only one of them also listed here.

I found it! 06 Apr 2009    Geo-What? I Don't Understand  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2 )

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

I found it! 31 Mar 2009    Lost Treasure  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Nice walk to this find. Canal Authority just started refilling the canal today. Left a pathtaag. TFTF.

I found it! 31 Mar 2009    Masseth's journey  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Overshot the entrance to this cache, so I parked at Lock 30 and walke down the road a bit before beginning the actual climb to GZ. Left a safety whistle/light and took a toy. TFTF.

I couldn 13 Mar 2009    Heron Bay  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

I don't think this one exists any more. Covered the ground pretty thoroughly today in a park I've been to many times (before I realized this cache was listed).

I found it! 11 Mar 2009    Sleepy Hollow  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

This cache is still in good shape. Left a 9-11 Memorial geocoin.

I found it! 06 Mar 2009    Big Daddy's Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Wish I could have seen what Mr Z found (over two years ago!). What I found was a soggy ziplock bag with evidence that it was in fact the contents of a cache, but no cache box of any description. This should be archived or replaced/restored. (Perhaps it is the season... I've found four caches in the last week that needed help, and put two of them back into service for their owners. I wasn't prepared to do so this time.)

I found it! 05 Mar 2009    Whizzy Wind-Ups  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3.5 )

Long time since anyone went looking for this one! Log book would have been soggy except that it was frozen solid. I took it home, and I'm peeling the pages apart now. May need to pitch the whole thing, but I'll save what I can save, and put in a new logsheet of some sort. This is one of the few caches that isn't also in geocaching.com, and the last one I know of in Ellison Park that I haven't tried. TFTF.

Note 04 Mar 2009    Coyote's Den  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Cache has been returned to its original location. I considered replacing it with an ammo can, but ChiliHead thought it wasn't worth the investment. Instead I put all the contents in a gallon sized ziplock bag inside the container. Perhaps the lid doesn't seal so well, but the contents can still be protected from the elements.

I found it! 01 Mar 2009    Old Glory  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found this with Cupie Doll just as the sun was going down. TFTF.

I found it! 28 Feb 2009    Leaping Limericks  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Great Lords-a-Leaping
Such a tough battle.
So where is the cache?
I'll never tattle!

Left a safety whistle/light and my gloves.
I went back for the gloves!


I found it! 28 Feb 2009    Watch out for Private Property!  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Surprised to see this listed on navicache along with Coyote Den, as the two are so close to each other, geocaching.com would not allow one or the other!

I found it! 28 Feb 2009    Coyote's Den  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Found this cache in pretty bad shape - to inches of standing water-turned-ice inside. I need to contact owner about this one. Log was only damp, so I was able to sign it. Took the whole container down off the hill to sort out the ruined contents and throw them away, dry out what could be dried out, etc. Will return ASAP. TFTF.
[Modified 2009-03-04 20:22:12]

Note 28 Feb 2009    A cache with no name  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Yes, Chili, I just found it, and could tell from the log, lack of name, lack of listing on geocaching.com that this was an unofficial cache. I thought official cachers oughta have a crack at it, so I "adopted" it. Didn't want to say that in so many words, in case reviewers rejected it on that grounds alone. Now that it is an official listing, I think I'll be more forthright in the description!

I found it! 25 Jan 2009    Mendon Ponds Deer  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1 )

Spooked about 5 deer on the way in. Although the trails had plenty of evidence of human activity, there were no human tracks into GZ at all. Snow was deep and crusty, and I was surprized that no one had sought this cache out over the many snowfalls we've had this season. Even so, the "tells" of a full sized cache were there, and it was a pretty easy find. Left a pathtage in the baggie with the logbook. TFTF.

I found it! 03 Jan 2009    Locke of Olde Cache  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

Happy to find another Gimpy hide. TNLNSL. TFTF.
[Modified 2009-01-03 13:06:14]

I found it! 30 Dec 2008    Subway Cache  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

Went in with Harefoot. Previous cache group made this find easy... just laying on the ground. Through log entries (on geochache.com) and subsequent email exchanges, I learned that magnets were supposed to keep this neatly out of sight, but the magnets attached themselves to the TBs I took out. Not knowing I had them, I now have to go in and do some maintenance for the owner!

Note 17 Dec 2008    Corbett's Glen  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Log entry was deleted.

I found it! 16 Dec 2008    Corbett's Glen  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Cache is still there but logbook was soggy, and too full to squeeze in my signature. Took a TB in trade. TFTF.

I found it! 14 Dec 2008    Critter Kennel  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Found it just as I was losing daylight. SL. left safety whistle/light. TFTF.

I found it! 13 Dec 2008    Corporate Knothole  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Quick dash on a snowy Saturday morning. Nobody around. SL. TFTF.

I found it! 11 Dec 2008    The Old Mill  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Nice hide. I tried this over the weekend, and the gate was locked, so I had to come back and today was the lucky day.

Note 06 Dec 2008    The Old Mill  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Log entry was deleted.

I found it! 06 Dec 2008    Lower Falls And The Old Glen House cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Nice easy find (except for the long climb back up to pedestrian level!). Pleased to find a history lesson inside. Way to many toy tradables in there. Someone needs to harvest this cache, and use the toys as tradables in other caches!

I found it! 06 Dec 2008    Maple Grove Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Nice-n-easy. Traded TBs, but didn't realize I'd taken a whole bag full in exchange for only one!

Note 02 Dec 2008    Cemetery Knickknacks  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Left a pathtag.

I found it! 02 Dec 2008    Cemetery Knickknacks  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Meant to log this in as a find.. apparently only posted a comment.

I found it! 28 Nov 2008    Graveyard Grumble Part 1 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Logged this find in geocashing.com.. didn't knoe it was cross-listed. Nice adventure in Mt Hope Cemetary.

I found it! 28 Nov 2008    Graveyard Grumble Part 2 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I found it! 13 Nov 2008    Warning (I Shall Wear Purple)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Fun find with my young son. We got muggled by a dog-walker, but it couldn't be helped. Son got a whole geo-stash that was totally age appropriate, and I swapped books.

I found it! 11 Nov 2008    MC-Square  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

Thought I was in the area... in fact I was on the wrong side of the canal... crossing I390 and did it anyway!

Note 24 Oct 2008    Indian Falls  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Left a TB. SL. TFTF. Update: Mistook this for Indian Landing. Did not find Indian Falls (yet).
[Modified 2009-02-28 21:23:27]

I found it! 12 Oct 2008    West Meets East  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

Nice cache after a day of trail hiking. Left a TB

I found it! 26 Sept 2008    Issaquah's Book Exchange Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

One of my first finds (#11). I knew it was cross-listed, but only posted my find on geocaching.com. Just now catching up (12/11/08).

I found it! 20 Sept 2008    Mendon Ponds Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )
