Note 20 Mar 2010    Verizon Parking Lot  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Damn, this spot has been muggled twice... what is wrong with people?! Thanks for the re-furb.

Note 18 Nov 2009    Multnomah Falls for Dummies  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Just got a WheresGeorge hit on the 2nd of the bills, implying that this NaviCache was either found by a cacher who couldn't leave a log entry or the NaviCache was vandalized/muggled.

Note 09 Jul 2009    Verizon Parking Lot  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

HazMan: thnx 4 all u've done.

Note 26 Mar 2007    Bhushi Dam near Lonavala, India  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Thanks for playing, Kerlyn. Most GPS are accurate to within 10-20 meters. Were you able to spot the rocks (posted in the picture) within the 10-20 meters? The cache was underneath, but several of my caches have disappeared in India. If a random native finds one, they're probably not going to understand English and the cache instructions. Plus, the rule of India: no rules. Look at traffic :-)

Note 26 Jun 2006    Verizon Parking Lot  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

It was hidden just a few feet off the Verizon parking lot. Do you think it's been pilfered by some over-zealous grounds person or spoil-sport co-worker?

I found it! 08 May 2005    Westward Ho (The Imposter wants to go)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Beautiful day for a ride on my scooter, so I verified that the cache is still there. My plans to beat Winter erosion have worked. The fishing lure hanging from the "pointer overhead" is gone, but that's to be expected on a public beach.

Note 29 Apr 2005    Spawn of Multiplicity # 5  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 2 )

Don't be hatin', WhiteKong.

This was just a cache I considered before I found it double-listed. Thanks for the list of cache authors whose caches I want to avoid. Makes NaviCaching a lot easier.

I found it! 23 Apr 2005    Morgans Adventure  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Strange: I headed for this NaviCache exclusive because the postings below indicated I'd missed this one over the years, yet as I dodged the raindrops in Black Creek Park, the route sure looked familiar. There was a freshly broken branch at the trail turnoff and a few yards in, I knew I had been here before. The ammo box seems to have moved a little deeper off the trail and my Garmin III+ read 90 feet. Look at my pic: there's a tree on the left side of the cache, just above my GPS. Look at Quinn's original pic: where's the tree? I opened the cache and saw that I had logged in exactly 4 years ago. Very strange.

I found it! 21 Apr 2005    Cherry  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Found the posting for this cache on NaviCache.com thinking I could be FTF (First To Find). Left work early to insure my chances. Very easy to find via wide open trails, but the logbook indicates FTF two days ago. Apparently author Barrington doesn't think his caches get enough attention, so he posts to multiple caching websites like GC. Make no assumptions of cache contents, TBs (Travel Bugs), etc. based on NaviCache.com alone. Cache currently contains many handwarmers and kid's game CDs. A mini mag-style flashlight is missing the lens and not working. I re-sealed the baggie on a Schaeffer pen set. Took nothing, left:
- several Wendy's coupons

Back in the hinterland for a short visit. Weather was great, so I rode my scooter from N. Chili. Took onion rings, ground round and hot sauce from LDR Charpit, left gas ;^)

Note 23 Oct 2004    Halloween Treats, No Tricks  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Health check. Good shape, just a little condensation inside. Made sure lid was very tight and left box at slight tilt so any weather would roll off easier.

Note 16 Aug 2004    Who Ya Gonna Call?  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Tried to check this one without a GPSR and failed. It's quite overgrown...watch your step amongst the boulders.

Note 16 Aug 2004    Westward Ho (The Imposter wants to go)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Wouldn't put it on private land. I'm back in NY, so I'll check it out.

Note 15 Aug 2004    Morristown Mill  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

There's something about this little hamlet and thievery: the cache is missing again (regardless of the game explanation note I leave in the tupperware container). I don't know, maybe the park caretaker or local kids can't read.

Nonetheless, I've re-hidden a microcache. It's a small, inconspicuous, one-cup plastic container with a small log sheet and a <a href="http://www.wheresgeorge.com/report.php?key=82d9a7701a0f1781f93d0cb3d6d25d8d" target="_blank">WheresGeorge bill</a>.

I found it! 08 Aug 2004    Oz (Part One) - Emerald City  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

I gave a GPSr to a friend and his daughter to get them interested. The month of August means skeeters and poison ivy, so they stayed on the main trails. It's also a little overgrown for a four year old.

I found it! 08 Aug 2004    Oz (Part Two) - Return to Kansas  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 2 )

While the waypoints aren't far off the trail, there are trees to block satellite reception, skeeters, mud, poison ivy, thick undergrowth, and prickers. Watch your young ones. Finding the broom is tough...don't go when the light is low.

TN (took nothing). Lots of stickers remain in this micro-cache

I found it! 02 Aug 2004    ORIGINAL STASH TRIBUTE PLAQUE  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Visiting from Rochester, NY. Garmin III+ read 35 feet, but stash is obvious at roadside behind the log. Big thanks to the godfather, Dave Ulmer.

TN (took nothing) as the following TBs (Travel Bugs) are missing and unlogged:
Jammin Traveller TB
Park Rover

Lots to see and do in this area: Xmas tree and horse farms, u-pick blueberries, trout pond, snack stand, etc.

Note 02 Aug 2004    Casey's "The Steve Irwin Experience" Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I found it! 15 Jul 2004    Casey's "The Steve Irwin Experience" Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Revisited here to find a TB (Travel Bug) that was only posted on the other caching site. Ironically, the "Dead Fish" started its hitchiking journey with a WheresGeorge acquaintance.

Note 03 Jul 2004    Second time's a charm??  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2 )

Was going for the FTF, First To Find, but suddenly remembered to check the other site before I wasted my time. Sure enough: double posted and already found.

Note 16 May 2004    Sprucewood  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Almost headed on this trip, thinking it was an under-visited NaviCache. I started doing my homework and then discovered it's double-posted on the other caching site with many, MANY more posts.

Note 21 Jan 2004    India's Third NaviCache - Bangalore  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I can't see this Bangalore NaviCache from my hotel room in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada ;^)

Over the last 2 years, I've placed 6 NaviCaches in India and you might be the first persons to actually visit any waypoint. We visitors to India have to keep this game going, LOL. Considering the lack of India cachers, I'll come right out and say that the plastic NaviCache box was right on top of the concrete wall, pretty high over 2m, not easily seen. It might have become victim to India's National Dilemma: "flicking" aka stealing. As usual, I had included a note in the box, explaining the game, asking finders not to spoil the game for others. I had to write the note in english, so that might invalidate any reasonable behavior.

I started on GeoCaching.com, but got tired of the message board bickering. When site owner Jeremy evolved to the point of wanting to own the word "geocache" and all data that individual cachers entered on the site relating to individual experiences, I switched to the friendlier http://NaviCache.com

I found it! 17 Jan 2004    Sault Ste Marie  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Leave it to Scout, picking a virtual NaviCache that I could hit from a bar. It was snowy & cold (-25C) when I got within 20m of the waypoint, so I relaxed at "Docks Riverfront Grill".

Note 13 Jan 2004    Algoma6  ( Difficulty: 3.5    Terrain: 3.5 )

I'm visiting the Soo for the next two weeks while I start up a Call Center program, but Winter doesn't seem the best time for this climb.

I'll hit the other three NaviCaches nearby. I'll also be hiding one.

I found it! 03 Jan 2004    Casey's "The Steve Irwin Experience" Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

As the recent finder of this NaviCache, I adopted to do a little maintenance: removed all the twigs & bark from inside the box, looked for the missing half of the Hulk Hogan figurene and "Where's Otis" TravelBug dog left by GregP100 on 15 NOV. This area is a popular "party spot" and maybe the cache is being looted.

Never mind, this happens when cache originators post on both NaviCache.com and GeoCaching.com, but finders only post on one of them. We end up with a jagged, difficult to follow, sequence of events, i.e. one has to go to GeoCaching.com to learn that this cache was also found on 25 DEC (not that the finders declared what they left or that they took the "Where's Otis" TravelBug).

Artimes joined me on the hunt as did mutual friend "T-Bone" who lives 400m down the lane. We met Buck who owns the house with the Sicilian donkeys & giant bell from the old Bausch & Lomb tower (next to the cache). Buck indicates the cache is on private property, owned by the man from whom he bought his house.

In the spirit of the game, we "cached in, trashed out" and declare that we

I found it! 01 Jan 2004    The Old Farm  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

I don't advise chasing after NaviCaches as the sun is setting (1630hrs), but both the weather & ground were clear. I intended to keep the creekbed next to me so I could find my way out. I saw what appeared to be 2 women struggling below at the creek, but my III+ said the NaviCache was above & beyond them. I passed above them & was lucky to find a fallen tree across. "Instigator" was at the goal! He was kind enough to enquire if I was going to make it thru my huffing & puffing. I did, but we both acknowledged light was short. He headed back to the women & I quickly made my entry into the log. BTW, I would say that much of the vines on the "hardware" and climbing elsewhere are poison ivy.

Barrington has some good stuff in this NaviCache, so don't be cheap:
14-in-1 multitool
small Swiss knife
emergency poncho
Mag-type mini light (tho the lens appears to have popped out)
small, lustrous stone (might be garnet or pyrite)
log book
"Peace" and its TravelBug appear gone (not noted in log)

In the spirit of the game, I'll declare that I took nothing, but left a <a href="http://www.wheresgeorge.com/report.php?key=bdd5df1112310f8b7a49eb3311d7218f" target="_blank">WheresGeorge.com $2 bill</a> and a mountaineer's snapring/key chain.

I found it! 01 Jan 2004    Blackjack Barge Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

And 45 mins. behind SwampRat311, the YardBoy is back for a week before he returns to Canada.

If you were ever a kid partying in this area, you'll know the trail. Consequently, bring a garbage bag to "cache in, trash out." If unfamiliar with the area, I can give you a pallet-load of ideas to keep your feet dry. If off the trail, be careful; there are many ways to trip and many branches to poke your eyes out. With the canal drained for the winter, you'll see that Zebra Mussels are a serious problem and you might consider what you can do to help.

You'll need a long arm to reach the NaviCache, but if you move it closer, it'll be really obvious from the trail. Please also clean up your scuff marks around the spot, otherwise the party animals will be on this box like white on rice. I had a hitchiker to leave, but this box is jammed too tight with:
2 insulated lunch bags
flashlight (needs 4 AA batteries)
log book & pencil

In the spirit of the game, I'll declare that I took nothing, but left a very flat Altoid Strips key chain & a <a href="http://www.wheresgeorge.com/report.php?key=987710d7c3162a679e834ea9847f013f" target="_blank">WheresGeorge.com $2 bill</a> as a hitchiker.

I found it! 28 Dec 2003    Frolic in Fairport  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2 )

I gave some friends my original eTrex GPS for Xmas and went with Mike L. on his first hunt today. He picked "Walk for Wimps" from the <i>other</i> site (which is a shortened version of this NaviCache). It was a beautiful, warm, sunny day and I made Mike do all the work. He learned that amazing things are close by and where we least expect them. He also discovered the comraderie as we met another family caching minutes behind us with their brand new GPS. I gave those newbies a few tips:
Teach your kids to respect another's game & the environment.
Don't walk directly to the cache, beat the brush, nor break the tree limbs.
Re-hide the cache a little "neater" than how you find it.

In the spirit of the game, I'll post that we left a hair barrette and took a Canal brochure. I'll be moving a hitchiker (The Good Ship Auburn & Captain Cal) according to its stated goal: somewhere along the Erie Canal System. The cache is in good shape and still contains:
first aid kit
religious pin
wooden, flip-flop toy
camera & log book

Note 06 Dec 2003    Buffalo Bill's Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Well, well, well...Justin Rathman, a St. Lawrence University student, Cacher & Georger from the past. Welcome back! Justin (and Team Slacker) took that CD from another one of my NaviCaches over 2 years ago. It sounds like this Buffalo NaviCache has been vandalized with nobody attesting to taking the modem or multi-tool. I'm not surprised: this is a "relief" area for drunks during Bill's football games. Rusty fence is the least of contaminents. I only saw the plastic container during the recent football game, I didn't uncover or open it in a crowd.

Note 16 Nov 2003    Buffalo Bill's Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Checked this NaviCache as I walked into the game versus the Texans. Bills lost again, but our Spencerport group had a great tailgate party. For mid-NOV, the weather was gray, but 43F and snowless.

Note 13 Jul 2003    Keg Creek Georger!  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Kudos to "hornet" for suggesting back on 30 JUN 2002 that others bring a new Zip-loc bag for this wet NaviCache. If you also put a mothball inside, the mice may not chew the bag ;^)

Note 08 Apr 2003    Hamlin Name It & Claim It  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Sorry to read about your "Miss/thumbs down". Here's a tip all the way from Chennai, India:
1. My hides always involve reading and occasionly math, history, or spelling. Would it be sport if you just entered numbers into your GPS & walked up to a NaviCache?
2. My waypoints are NEVER in someone's backyard. That goes against the premise of our sport. The WP is at the end of the road (like in the pic).

Note 06 Jan 2003    India's Third NaviCache - Bangalore  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

The NaviCache.com Forum has some additional clues on this NaviCache. I had to place the India topic under Australia ;^(

You haven't made your email addy visible in your NaviCache Profile, so let me ask you:
1) what GPSr do you have, why, & how did you come to NaviCaching?
2) are there others in India with a GPSr & do you see the game growing? Or will the boxes just get ripped off?

Let's hope it wasn't small-minded people who took the last game box and spoiled the fun for others. I've replaced it with a small, plastic container that reads: "NaviCache.com, play the game, don't steal". It holds a log book, WheresGeorge dollar bill, emergency flashlight, and a digital watch. Enjoy.

I've replaced the missing NaviCache with a new one: small, plasticware container with log book, emergency poncho & flashlight, WheresGeorge.com dollar bill for free tracking, and a Cheap Trick CD. Enjoy (hopefully immature cache thieves will not spoil it for the rest of us).

Note 22 Jul 2002    Morristown Mill  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I checked on my NaviCache as I was heading to my parent's Dunn's Pt. home. Sadly, the cache is missing. The small plasticware container included the standard, typewritten explanation of our family-oriented game, so I don't think it was vandalized by an adult. I'll be giving Morristown one more chance: I'll replace the box & gifts this week.

Note 21 Jul 2002    Who Ya Gonna Call?  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Read all the clues, the pic titles (the other pic), & additional clues that I have posted. Trust your GPSr, don't wander off to personal property (mailbox & concrete wall), rocks/barrier or debris piles (dangerous). It's supposed to be a challenge, but email me if you want a giveaway (which I hope you won't post like someone did on my "A, B, Sea Breeze" NaviCache).

Note 29 Mar 2002    Hamlin Name It & Claim It  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

OK... now we know it's a 2-parter.

"Obsessed" is part of this sport...now try <a href=http://www.wheresgeorge.com>WheresGeorge.com</a> to eat up the rest of your time!

Note 19 Mar 2002    Hamlin Name It & Claim It  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

OK, I'll help you out all the way from Chennai, India! But first, go to the "other" caching website (GeoCash...) & do a search on "Porcupine Den". Read about my spending MORE than 20 min ;^)

The Hamlin posting clearly states: "wide open, little to trample". No private property, piles of debris, nor nooks & crannies...well, maybe a little nook. Did you decipher the clues? What's the third word to be unscrambled? Does that word occur twice in relation to the 2nd pic? What's the directive clue location of that word when you're looking at the pic?

Think twice about doing my "Westward Ho" cache. It's a 1/2 day challenge, but you'll know you're a NaviCacher!

Note 12 Dec 2001      ( Difficulty:     Terrain:  )

R-O-C...K-E-Y (sing along). By vacationing with that goofy guy (no, not RoadKill), you're missing the 1st days of Winter in Upstate NY.

Hmmm, I don't see a "stumped" post in here from last weekend ;^)

I found it! 22 Nov 2001    So...Where is George ?  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

1PM...what a beautiful day. Squirrels were frolicking in the leaves. Thanks, Quinn!

You can now call this a WheresAbe? cache (took the silver dollar, left a fin). III+ took me to one side of the creek then back across. At the cache, GPSr finally settled in at 11'.

Please bring a garbage bag: I carried out 6 beer cans, some plastic & a #10 can. You'll also find a lot of trash right by the bridge entrance.

I found it! 04 Nov 2001    Greenway Trail Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Found cache around 1:15PM on a beautiful Fall day. III+ settled in at 29'.

Cache contains some great useful items: toilet paper, batteries, cigar, magnetic toy top, poncho, handwarmer, compass, vegetable brush, waterproof matches, whistle & lanyard. I took an un-Georged dollar bill & a pic of myself. I left the usual (2) WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking. The quilt squares are a great idea, Gimpy, but please clarify if they're to remain at Greenway & collect Rochester sigs or become a Hitchiker & collect distant sigs.

On my way out, I met some squirrel hunters with semi-automatics. I also met Quinn & Caron coming in. I joined them, comparing each of our III+. After they found the cache, we all trashed-out, especially a foil-covered box that someone left hanging from a tree after sighting in their shotgun.

Thanks Gimp!

I found it! 04 Nov 2001    Issaquah On The Ave Webcam Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Arrived at the co-ords in the middle of Monroe Ave. about 3PM just as the rain & high winds were subsiding. I'm in front of Starbucks, in my rust-colored vest, holding my III+.

Called Artimes at work who saved a 900KB .bmp (I hope it reduces well to meet the 150KB restriction).

I found it! 03 Nov 2001    Casey's Joy Returns  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Very close to where the original was found earlier this Summer 2001 (poison ivy has dropped its leaves, but tread lightly, the sap from a broken vine can still get you). Brought Karen, Mike & 8 mo. old Erin on their first Find (they helped me Hide "Who Ya Gonna Call" earlier this Summer).

Searched all around where III+ read 4-5' while Karen lamented how frustrating this could be. I put the GPSr aside & succeeded in finding freshly broken sticks/bent pricker canes. The III+ settled in at 27'. Cache contained some interesting plastic fish coasters, drilled foreign coins, incense & seed packets. We took nothing & left the usual (2) WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking along with a tightly bagged Krispie Treat (Halloween was good & I pray it doesn't attract a grizzly bear).

I found it! 25 Sept 2001    Issaquah Saw A Deer  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

6:55PM, a 3rd cache in Mendon Ponds park which is good for us who work in Henrietta. Sun was setting & there I was in my work tie, in between rain showers. My eTrex & III+ got me within 48' & 51' respectively. Keep your puppy dogs leashed as there are many fearless deer who almost let you walk up to them. Cache also contained rubber ball, Transformer, & Mortal Kombat CD. Don't forget to turn off the manual flash switch on the camera. Nothing struck my fancy, but I left a WheresGeorge.com bill for free tracking.

Bring a garbage bag: I hauled out a coffee cup, candy wrapper & Wendy's cup that still had ice in it.

Thanks Hinge (Jack Pitzer of Mucky Pup?)

I found it! 23 Sept 2001    Cache Iroquois  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Beautiful day, 73F., minimal skeeters. Entrance billboard says these trails are closed to all activities except hunting during the upcoming shotgun season. Dogs must be on a 10' leash, no bike riding, & there's a fishing hole 1/2 mile to the north.

III+ got me within 20' where I saw signs of NaviCache. Ammo box is very full with bunny picture puzzle, poncho, toy rhino, bandaid kit, ghost key ring, CD-R, Slam Band watch, golf ball, mini lite, baseball, AA batteries, flashlite & 2 new quarters. Nothing struck my fancy, but I left 2 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking. The pix I've attached include an artsy reflection with turtles & a tree scarred by fools with a knife. I have more pix attached at the "other" website.

Bring a garbage bag, I filled one with butts, candy wrappers, beer cans, shotgunned oil cans & a snowmobile radiator. There's a large, plastic tarp & bottles 10' off the trail near the NaviCache.

Thanks Gary!

I found it! 16 Sept 2001    Cache Conesus  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

9-16-01, Sunday, 6:10PM (sun just set below the hill)

I'm back. Swung down here after finishing work in Henrietta. Tried several approaches & talked to several locals about NaviCaching before the III+ homed in (reading 20' at the cache). This is a great deer hunting area with its natural barriers.

The box is tightly packed with golf balls, mini lite, koosh, plastic spiders for Halloween, poncho, classy cigar, AA batteries, sidewalk chalk, & mini light saber. Nothing struck my fancy (if only I had matches), so I left my usual 2 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking.

This is a clean area with no trash. I fluffed up the grass around the cache as I exited. The skeeters appear gone. Thanks Gimpy.

I found it! 11 Sept 2001    Egyptian Hike  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Sunday, Sept. 9, 2001

I used this same "old electric trolley bed" as part of my "Who Ya Gonna Call" NaviCache.

I was at a friend's house down the road from this NaviCache for Sunday NFL games & swung by here on my way home. The walk past the swamp was beautiful. There's poison ivy everywhere including a vine directly above the ammo box. Pix will show berries setting on the ivy. My III+ got me to a point in the main trail where I could follow the "deer path" directly to the NaviCache (please walk carefully).

This NaviCache is jam packed with rubber ball, squirt gun, etc. I took nothing & left the usual 2 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking. Thanks for the easy walk with good sat reception.

I found it! 30 Jul 2001    Night Stalker Part 1 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

May 22, 2001

Name: OJ, Email: Yard_Boy(at)HotMail(dot)com, Home: Spencerport, Misc: met my friend Artimes near here after work & discovered he had a new eTrx to break in. We heeded the instructions/curse. On to Part 2.

I found it! 30 Jul 2001    Night Stalker Part 2 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

May 22, 2001

Name: OJ, Email: Yard_Boy(at)HotMail(dot)com, Home: Spencerport, Misc: helping Artimes break in his new eTrex. We NaviFritzed(C) near the end & did several cross-tracks, suddenly realizing we were being watched. Fearing another Cacher, we froze until he explained his dog walking. We intoduced him to NaviCaching. Artimes spotted the Cache with his 27 year younger nimbleness. Artimes is also a WheresGeorger & fortunately, there were 2 bills for free tracking in the Cache (we exchanged). We just beat the rain at 7:45PM. Watch out for poison ivy & dog doo ;^)> Artimes & I then headed down Lake Ave. to the world famous LDR Char Pit, known for their onion rings & hot sauce.

I found it! 30 Jul 2001    Ghost's Domain  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

May 24, 2001

Name: OJ, Email: Yard_Boy(at)HotMail(dot)com, Home: Spencerport, Misc: quick 10 minute jaunt in a beautiful park. Exchanged my pocket knife with one from Cache. Also exchanged dollar bills (mine were marked with WheresGeorge.com for free tracking). I cleaned up the Cache which was looking like a teepee of obviously stacked sticks. Left the park for Summerville's Club House bar & their unique garlic parmesean wings (OK, the draughts were $0.75). Thanks for the walk, Quinn!

I found it! 22 Jul 2001    Mission Possible  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

Just glad to help correct the instructions. Kudos to speedy Caron who also discovered that 100% accuracy isn't needed to find these caches. I took nothing & left the WheresGeorge stamp certificate for those cachers needing a little more time with the clarified waypoints. I also left 2 WheresGeorge bills for free tracking (please do NOT sign them).

As I headed out this morning, another car ran a light & in a squeal of rubber, almost broadsided me...would that have been a NaviCrache?

Bring your bug spray & a garbage bag; I trashed out a Jack Daniels bottle & milk carton not 20' from the cache. I'm taking the M&M Kids and their Mushroom babysitter for a visit with the Imposter.

P.S. I got to drive that SUV some time ago!

I found it! 22 Jul 2001    No Exit  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Gimpy is right, there's a well worn path to the cache (you don't need a GPS for the last 100 yards). I find that high-stepping, carefully walking toe first helps. He's right again when he suggests not taking the direct route. If you've got an eyeball on a cache, why not take the circular route?

Nothing struck my fancy other than blackcaps on nearby bushes. Left 2 WheresGeorge bills for free tracking. Welcome Barrington, great start!

I found it! 18 Jul 2001    The Shining Path  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I see the instructions have now been "clarified", so I'll add the ease of my experience. Waypoint 1 brought me to a door that had no numbers. Several feet in one direction was a sign with four 4 digit numbers. An equal number of feet in an opposite direction was a sign with one 4 digit number. I made a choice believing that the author of the cache was not playing games. At waypoint 2, I found 3 or 4 equidistant dedications. I thought one of the names was a given, but what the heck, I quickly analyzed how much difference there might be with the "o"s and length of names. Just take your time & have fun with the numbers. I'm using an inexpensive eTrex & it just takes a little longer.

Note 14 Jul 2001    Seneca Trails  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

It's still there, but the log book is missing. There's scrap paper to note your visit. Left another WheresGeorge.com bill for free tracking.

I found it! 11 Jul 2001    The Shining Path  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Started at 5:30PM after work. Great cache, tho 5' one way or another at any of the 3 waypoints can throw different variables into the mix. Also traffic patterns have really changed on 2 of the waypoints. Of course I stopped at the LDR for rings & hot sauce! As I neared the cache, I met some locals & they joined me with their 5 year old. Houston, I think we have converts. It was buggy when I arrived at the cache at 8:40PM. Be careful when you step off the trail, not to trample a path to the box (wet inside, not water tight). Took Bammer, left 3 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking (please do NOT sign them). Thanks Quinn & brother Dave!

I found it! 07 Jul 2001    1K Sanctuary  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Hey Clan! Did you see my entry in the logbook when you arrived shortly after me? The Imposter heard you coming & hitched a ride with me. I know you appreciated the bug spray I left for PERMANENT residence in this cache!! This is very delicate muckland & I had some reservations about leaving the conservation trail/boardwalk to bushwack. The Nature Conservancy has even fenced off some of the native lily near this cache. I walked very carefully to not crush them, the trillium & the jack-in-the-pulpit. Moving slowly, I got pix of a bedded doe on the way in & a standing buck on the way out. They weren't afraid of my yellow lineman boots ;^) Took nothing, left a $5 WheresAbe bill for free tracking (please don't sign it). PS: lots of butterflies & moths as the milkweed is blooming. Raspberries will be ripe in a week.

I found it! 05 Jul 2001    It's as easy as ABC  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I had an email today from a retired couple (Bob & Marilyn) who had been given an eTrex, found my addy in a cache posting & wanted a first-time guide. After work, I took them to this famous, "not too easy", cache. Enroute we found a discarded garbage bag to fill & experienced GPS navi-fritz under tree cover. We did a careful cross search, taking care of the foliage, & Marilyn had the sharp eyes. Took nothing, left 3 WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking.

eTex led me to trampled opening in greenery. Followed broken sticks & trash right up to cache. Are we teaching the kids anything about ecology or just dash for the cash? Took nothing, left WheresGeorge.com bills for free tracking.

I found it! 02 May 2001    Seneca Trails  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

May 2, 2001

Name: OJ, Email: Yard_Boy(at)HotMail(dot)com, Home: Spencerport, Misc: on my way here, I got lucky & passed a Family Dollar Store on Clinton to replace batteries just exhausted on Genesee River Cache by Quinn. Fellow GeoCacher Suzy had just shown me the Old Trout Pond this Spring & after I randomly parked my car today at 7PM, I was 100' & 1 minute from the Cache! I took nothing, not even the $150. I left a WheresGeorge.com bill for free tracking. I departed quickly as there was a hot & heavy couple on a nearby bench!

I found it! 22 Apr 2001    Morgans Adventure  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

After visiting cache on 23 APR 05, I thought the spot looked familiar, tho the hiding spot seems to have moved slightly deeper off the trail. Log book indicates I was here 4 years ago yesterday, took nothing and left a WheresGeorge.com $20 bill for tracking.
