Note 09 Aug 2004    What's the Point  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1 )

Looks like this one is missing. With two reports of "no finds" and with conformation by someone who's been there, me can assume the cache is gone. I will work on a replacement as soon as I can.

I couldn 14 Jun 2004    2004 New York Area Cachers Picnic!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

I am so sorry I couldn't make it, but then I've been a busy boy. Just moved into a new place in Lima NY and still unpacking boxes. I do miss the old gang and I heard from Gamma Kitt that Yardboy was there. Oh well Road Kill is still grinning (maybe a little less than normal) but we'll try harder next year. I should be at the Letchworth Gathering 2004 unless I find something along the road that day.

Note 14 Jun 2004    Letchworth Fall Gathering III  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Prof & I will be there with the burgers. Who's got the buns?

Note 24 May 2004    Verda Says Hi (see Last Log)  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

This cache has been relocated. See "Verda's Log"

Log entry was deleted.

I found it! 24 Apr 2004    Igloo at the Glen  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Prof & I were in the area to plant a cache of our own and decided to check this one out. The prof got the 1st Huckle Buckle for the year against RoadKill. The container seems to be holding up to the weather as the contents was dry for the most part. Trinkets on the inside needed a boost so we took nothing and left a dollar. The Glen's main trail opens on Memorial Day but the trails to this cache are open now. This is another great cache by Gimpy.

Prof & Road Kill are grinning

I found it! 18 Oct 2003    Letchworth Fall Gathering II  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Hail Hail the gang was all there. Road Kill didn't get much caching in, but spent most of the day grinning anyway. What a treat to see the old faces as well as the new geophytes caching there hearts out.

The attached photo recorded who's there at 3:15 PM. With approximately 90 signing in and 70 counted at the meal, those missing either couldn't stay or couldn't break away from caching. Oh yes, and some came later. If you missed them Rocky and Gimpy were there.

In the end - fun was had by all.

Note 15 Oct 2003    Letchworth Fall Gathering II  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Just to let everyone know, I've done a little survey to find that there are 20 caches in Letchworth State Park to date. I will have several copies of a one page printout of the coordinates for those caches for your pleasure. Don't forget to bring the cameras because the leaves are very colorful right now.

Note 30 Sept 2003    Letchworth Fall Gathering II  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Road Kill will be there. Of course! I will be bringing 80 burgers & buns. I will need volunteers for cooks.

No it's not road kill burgers. I'm sorry

I found it! 20 Aug 2003    Lucretia  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Nice quiet place on a warm day. Here on busness from Western New York, I took the time to make this the second cache of the day. I was unprepaired to leave anything but thanks so much for the cache.

I found it! 14 Jun 2003    Richard's Park Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I believe this was the first of six caches done today. When traveling with a group in three cars Road Kill and Prof happened on the park area first. Definately off the beaten path. Thanks for the hide.

I found it! 14 Jun 2003    Captain Hook's Hideaway III  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

We lost the prof for a short time. None the less eight went in and eight came out. We seemed to find the trails except for the last 30 feet or so. The last of six caches done today and I was the last to find it. Wet and muddy we retired for the day. Thank's for the hide.

I found it! 01 Jun 2003    On Top of an Esker  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Prof and I met two newbees on our way to the cache. We traveled with them for a while but spilt up when units read 200 feet from the cache (They bee lined we stayed on path). We met up again about 50 feet from the cache but we were headed in different directions. At any rate, when we found the cache the newbees were nowhere in sight. We signed the log book, took picture #4 on the cache camera, took nothing and left nothing. As we left we yelled "Huckle Buckle Beanstalk" but heard no reply from the newbees. I can only hope they had success.

Note 03 May 2003    HOGS BACK VISTAS  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I deserve double creadit for this one in that I've found it twice now and in a different location. This second hiding is in a much nicer spot and less apt to be seen by passers by. On top of that there is a new hat, so I managed to take another photo (#20 I think). What a treat to be at this lovely spot in the spring. I was accompanied by "Prof" ( a newbee to train at Huckle Buckle Beanstalk)who enjoyed the views as well. Took nothing but left a pocket knife and a McDonalds bear.

I found it! 09 Mar 2003    Cacher's Cache Can  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Took a newbee in training to this one, but I show no mercy. Part of training excersize is to know what Huckle Buckle Beanstalk means.

I couldn 08 Feb 2003    On Top of an Esker  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Introduced a friend and potential newbee to caching on this one. Had a nice afternoon walk in, but no luck finding the cache. We searched through the snow about a half hour with no results. The walk out got us back at the car as the sun was setting so that we experienced various shades of orange along the walk. Snapped 20 digital photos and captured the three bears. Missed the cache but found the treasure. Thank you junglehair

I found it! 18 Jan 2003    Akron Falls Winterfest Event Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

The man and his hat were there. It was great to touch base again with the past geocaching buddies of the crowd and to meet a few newbees to the sport as well. Games, activities, a band,refreshments and a bunch of little ones with grinning faces highlighted my day. That is until my arm was twisted to go caching.

I found it! 18 Jan 2003    Eversure's C&S Cache....  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I picked up a bunch of spectators who came along just to jest at Road Kill as he circled evercloser to eversures cache. I made the mistake to scout the other nice obvious place first. When found, the cache was frozen in place and it would not budge nor open. Although the log book could not be signed, I will claim a find but can only offer the word of the shady bunch that watched with grins.

Note 15 Jan 2003    Akron Falls Winterfest Event Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

OK I've found a timeslot on that day and pencled in Akron. So look for Road Kill's grin from 12 to 4PM. Hee hee.

Note 13 Jan 2003    Akron Falls Winterfest Event Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

OH Man! Just found out about it. I made other arrangements just yesterday. Dang it all to heck. For now, put me down as possible but improbable but I'll see what I can do.

I found it! 05 Oct 2002    Letchworth Fall Cachers' Gathering  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Found it! (Enjoyable that is) What a grand time.
I received many thanks and appreciative comments at the picnic and while there was a bit of work involved the real thanks goes out and back to all of you that participated and helped out. There wasn’t one instance were someone didn’t pop up and pitch in when something needed to be done. That really says a lot when you consider we really don’t know one another. I still am unable to claim that I could put half the names correctly with half the faces. Yet, the common ground of this foolish pastime, called geocaching, has built a family from total strangers.

I haven’t even started counting those that sighed in on the logbook but when I find the time to do that I will report my findings.

Speaking of “Findings”: someone left a black Corvette, a Rancher Quad runner, A monster truck and a Turbo flip racer at the picnic. Also found was a dark blue pullover windbreaker, size childs XL (14/16) and a photo of George, Brian & Pat at Stonybrook Cache. While I like the Corvette, I already have two vehicles. The windbreaker is a bit small and doesn’t go with my hat. However, knowing the photo might belong to Rocky makes me grin when I think about keeping it. Hee Hee.

Road Kill is grinning in lost & found.

I found it! 02 Sept 2002    INSPIRATION POINT GEOCACHE  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Went in the same way with BalloonPilot & CkickenLips. Man what a trip out and of course it was warm enough to sweat a little. Even so the experience at the site was worth the trip out. This place is a skipping rocks heaven. Took a Baby Huey video and left a chess puzzle.

I found it! 01 Sept 2002    Jacobs' Jest  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I give this one 3 grins. One for beating Rocky, a second for beating others and another grin for the special suprize.

Took an indian mug for an enamal camp mug.

I found it! 31 Aug 2002    Deep Pine Forest Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Went in with NonnyBee & HiJack before they got their names. BalloonPilot, ChickenLips, WW Gobstopper, Kurt and Donette all headed in for the 3 local caches here. I was exciting to see the interest of the newbees. These were fine caches and helped hook 2 more cachers into the sport. Took nothing and left only my log in the book.

I found it! 13 Jul 2002    West Pike Fire Tower-USGS Marker Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill went out on that hill a lookin fer the bear what ate Rocky's cache. He'd been a sorry critter to cross my path. I found the new container (a 50 cal. can) in good shape and untouched sept by other cachers. Somehow I got the wrong access road and treked in from the North. Lets just say I enjoyed a full value health walk.

At any rate I traded for a New York, New York key fob payin out a dollar and another trinket. And to the miserable bear I say “Grrrrrrrrrin”

I found it! 30 Jun 2002    Blair Witch  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was there too and as Balloonpilot & Chickenlips mentioned all was wet from condensation entering the hole on the bottom. To those that follow it is probably best to lay the box on its side until replaced or patched up.

The location is well worth visiting and can be a nice walk from the right parking spot. But that would be a spoiler if I told you where we parked.

Thank you Barrington.

I found it! 16 Jun 2002    Down but not out  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Found the "Down But Not Out" cache, first of three finds today. Would never have found it without the clue. Luckily, Bug Splatter decoded the clue before venturing out. Didn't quite believe the "Four-wheeler Road" warning until well committed. We were lucky to get through on a rainy day.

Traded a combination lock for a tin whistle. Took picture #22 on the cache camera capturing Road Kill and Bug Splatter on the scene.

Road Kill is grinning. Bug Splatter is not muddy yet and still up for caching. On to Gnomes Lair. Hee Hee.

I found it! 16 Jun 2002    Gnomes Lair  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 3 )

Second of three caches hit today. Just came from "Down But Not Out". Started in the nice flowery field, crossed a trickling stream and then ventured into the gnome's terrain. Did I mention it was raining? Bug Splatter was not too happy at this point but Road Kill got her to the lair. Took pictures #20 (Bug Splatter)& 19 (Road Kill) and traded out the pot holders for a clock/flashlight and two dollars. A well stocked cache and well worth the experience (Although Bug Splatter doesn't agree). I have pictures on my camera as well.

I found it! 16 Jun 2002    Up Up and Away  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

The third of three caches hit today. The targets were all treasures by Balloonpilot and Chickenlips'. Something about this one though was very familiar. Even so, I wasn't expecting it, and Bug Spatter was the first to make a key discovery. Therefore, she earned the honors of opening the cache. Nice theme for all things that fly. She took the balloon dish towel and left a sleeve of golf balls noting—“Some fly better than others”. Road Kill, on the other hand, left something in reference to “fly”, but certain to stop flight. Grin. Pictures taken were #21 & #20.

Wet, muddy, tired and hungry; Road Kill and Bug Splatter sought out a McDonalds and went home. As caches go Road Kill gives them an A+. Bug Splatter on the other hand is glad that Father’s Day only comes once a year.

I found it! 01 Jun 2002    ROCHESTER AND AREA CACHERS GET-TOGETHER!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Oh Man, What a time. I got the group photo printing out now on glossy. I printed a draft quality copy on regular paper just to mark it up as I counted the people. I found 71 grinning humans and 2 critters (without counting my hat). Wait a minute, I think I see the white sheet of paper on the post behind Quinn, which has Yardboy's wanted poster on it... That makes 73! I know there were a few that didn't make the photo shoot (Like Hinge Thunder who would have been shot if he'd been around). That means over 75 people attended this year and the rumor was that there were 25 last year. A triple - how about that.

I heard a lot of comment about doing another picnic this year around September. You can bet Road Kill is in.

I found it! 01 Jun 2002    The Leprechaun's Treasure  ( Difficulty: 5    Terrain: 3 )

Yes I Found it but not by traditional methods. The first trip out with the GPS I hunted about an hour. and gave up. Few hours later I was over there again with Hinge Thunder as he started the warmer/colder routine. Tony (a Delta Team member) and I got our hands on it at the same time to share the first to find. Took nothing left nothing, But I did leave shaking my head. This one was too tough for Road Kill. Grin

I couldn 20 May 2002    Emma A (#1 in Canton, NY)  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found the first half but the second half eluded me. Found myself short on time after two different calculation results. Then I never got a chance for a third attempt. The only real puzzle was deciding whether or not the river name ended in "E". It is not a big issue because the difference only amounts to 25 to 30 feet. So Yardboy has one on Road Kill for the moment. I may get back up there in a couple weeks.

Note 13 May 2002    ROCHESTER AND AREA CACHERS GET-TOGETHER!  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

Road-kill <---- That means Road Kill is signing up for road-kill (as in deer). I have to check stock but I think I can muster up maybe 5 pounds of venison sausage. Don’t worry I’ve picked out most of the gravel, tar, hair & glass. As for the power steering fluid, I’ve noticed it kinda helps keep the fire going good as you cook it.

Speaking of cooking - I’m thinking, if I don’t wear any lipstick, Quinn might allow me to stand close enough to help him cook.

I found it! 05 May 2002    Silver Lake Rail Road Trail  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

I wasn't first but I had a lovely time. I got intimately close with flora there. The pathway is undergoing some maintenence with tree cutting and flower planting in preparation for the summer season of hikers, bikers & cachers. A very nice walk for the most part. Thank you Gamma Kitt & Coyote.

I couldn 02 May 2002    Overflow Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

If it is still there, I missed it. Grass was short - trees were few, I even inspected a woodchuck hole. I spent maybe 15-20 munites there and would have stayed longer but I ran out of places to look.

I couldn 02 May 2002    Killen Me Softly  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

This one could very well be there but it eluded me. This is a good hiding area with lots of places it could be. I very much enjoyed this area of the park with it's looping and winding paths. I only wish I'd found more than 1 of 3 caches there.

I found it! 21 Apr 2002    Hoefle-Dulin Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3.5 )

Really raining too hard to take any time here and chance exposing the cache. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching, I did manage to log in and I got things closed back up before they got too wet. Also did Keebler, Riverside and Dead Road Caches this day. Road Kill is grinning.

Welcome to Navicache! Tell-em Road Kill sent ya. But then I guess I just did.
Still grinning

I found it! 21 Apr 2002    Keebler's Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

Hail was coming down as I found a place to park the car. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching, I wasn't sure I wanted to get out of the car. Then within 5 minutes or so things let up so I headed down the path. I too found the coords about 75 feet off, but Road Kill prevailed. Took Mickey Mouse and left a Forrest Gump CD taken from Skywatchers cache. I quickly signed the log and closed things up because it was raining a bit. By the way I think some nearby campers were baking. I swear I could smell cookies. Road Kill is grinning. On to 4 more caches as I head south.

I appreciate having my finds brought to Navicache. Thank you Welch.

I couldn 21 Apr 2002    Bear Creek Cache  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1 )

OK I went to this one too. Saw the burnt grass but no cache. I was passing through town anyway and thought I'd check it out. Hope you have a chance to replace this one even if you have to change the coords a bit.

I found it! 21 Apr 2002    Riverside Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

This was a quick in and out because of rain. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching, I did manage to take a lead bullet, leave a watchband and log in. I got things closed back up before they got too wet. Also did Keebler, Hoefle-Dulin and Dead Road Caches this day.

Me again Welch. You did make my days in Iowa enjoyable.

I found it! 21 Apr 2002    Dead Road Bed Cache  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Finally a 50 cal can. Aside from a 30 cal can at Skywatchers Gorge, everyone seems to favor the tupperware route. I found many damp caches this trip but the cans hold up. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching, A nice remote park. I met a genleman lashing a canoe to his car and I learned he was at the end of a weekend camping/canoeing the cedar river. Rain for the day had let up so I enjoyed the walk back along the old road. I took a small knife and left a key ring and a tin of altoids. I signed the log and put it all back as it was. Also did Keebler, Riverside and Hoefle-Dulin Caches this day. Road Kill is grinning. PS This looks like a flood area and I suggest using a rope to secure the can to a tree, rock or stump to prevent it from floating away.

Hope the altoids remain safe. Have you tied it down yet?

I found it! 20 Apr 2002    I380 Rest Stop Cache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1 )

Road Kill was here. A Western New Yorker in Cedar Rapids on business with a weekend to go caching. I had to hit this easy one but found things a little damp. I dried the container out the best I could and swapped out a dollar bill and left my sunglasses and a 6 in 1 game set. Dog A, Skywatch, Tackle box & Cindy's secret were other caches I did this day. Road Kill is Grinning.

It is certainly nice to have all your caches here at Navicache.

I found it! 13 Apr 2002    Busy as a Beaver  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 2.5 )

Found it in the rain. Now that I know what the attraction is I highly recommend going on a sunny day, Especially early morning for photos from the cache. I for one will be returning. Yes Rocky I feel like number two.

I found it! 12 Apr 2002    1779 Memorial Tree  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2 )

Stopped at the park on the way home from work and found it with no problem. I made the mistake of peeking at the topo but compensated by not using the GPS. This is a nice one for beginners and a history lesson too. Took picture 24 and took a "Woody the Bear" traveler. Left two serialized Road Kill dollars. The only down side - Rocky got to sign the book first.

I found it! 17 Mar 2002    Darien Diversion  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

The forth of 4 caches today. My dog (Nick) & I put 130 miles on the car to hit some of those most west of western NY caches. I hit this one on the return home as the sun was going down as well as some wet snow. There was a lot of mud and the dog got tangled in the grapevines but as usual I was probably on the wrong approach. In true caching spirit I was having fun.
Took a nice looking glass paper weight and a Eeyore travel bug. Left a Xmas mug and a fancy soap dish, soap & scrubber bath set. Hey, it's a something for the ladys thing.
Thank you Gimpy

I found it! 17 Mar 2002    ETERNAL FLAMES FALLS  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was here and enjoyed my first meeting of cachers in the field. So I make the find, signed the logbook, trade out and just as I'm putting the camera away my dog gives a bark as someone is headed our way. I spot the extended arm as a giveaway to cachers and no time to rehide the cache. I choose to set tight and wait for the enevitable. Sure enough - they nearly walk by, stop, chat a bit, turn and walk my way. Road Kill was caught red handed. The part that made is worse was that it was their first cache and I literally have to say "here it is".

So let me be the first to introduce you all to the newest of those to get hooked RX Mamma & Gray Ghost. Pix attached

Found RX Mamma & Gray Ghost at Eternal Flame Falls cache so we doubled up and proceeded to this one at Chestnut Ridge. For a two star terrain rating we managed to find the four star approach. (Beeline) This is my first time to this park and I found it well worth the drive and hill climbing workout. As usual we took the nice path out. Took nothing but left a plastic fawn figure pilfered from another cache. Thank you Cindy

I found it! 20 Feb 2002    Gimpys Linear  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was here. He and 2 coworkers do a noon cache run to enjoy some of this fine weather we're having. We were beaten by Woodhauler this time and near by fishermen paid no attention to 3 guys in the stream hollering "Huckle-Buckle-Beanstalk. I managed to take some photos of the guys pillaging the cache. I placed my mark in the logbook, took nothing but left an action figure and a stuffed dude obtained at another cache.

I found it! 21 Dec 2001    Greenway Trail Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill and co-worker Woodhauler finally took Channel 13 News geocaching. Doug Embledge and cameraman Paul met us at the parking spot for Greenway Trail Cache by Gimpy. No I didn't take the hat.

The story:

We went out to the parking area at the cache site, got out of the car, showed Doug a cache box (so he'd know what we were looking for) and I handed Doug the GPS. I told him I've done this a number of times and he was going to take the lead and do the finding on this run. There was only the slightest of hesitation but he took it. So I instructed him to hit "GoTo", select Greenway (for Gimpy's Greenway trail cache), and we were off. It was a very pleasant walk down the old rail bed with the cameraman (Paul) running all around us to get the shots. At first I don't think Paul realized how far 0.40 miles was. Needless to say he got tired and asked us to slow down. We stopped occasionally to do a few little interview type shots to give Paul a break.

When we got near the cache there was a very conspicuous potential hiding spot. We had to wait for the cameraman to get into position and when the search just got under way Doug says: "There's a boxy looking object in under that log. I peered in and sure enough Doug had beat both Road Kill and Woodhauler. I wanted to tell him it doesn't count because he didn't say "Huckle-Buckle-Beanstalk" but I kept my mouth shut. He He. At any rate he opened the cache, filled in the logbook, took a snapshot of the threesome on the in cache camera, swapped out and re-hid the cache. All on film! I did mention to him to keep the shots tight and edit out anything that might reveal the cache location. The Paul assured us that that no one would know where the cache is after is editing. The best part was that the trees were not interfering and Doug was amazed that the GPS was right on. I have to hand it to Gimpy for this very nice hide. It couldn't have been better suited for this outing.

All was going fine until Doug said lets do an interview here and, with the camera 2 feet off your face he wants to know why I go caching. I stammered through that portion but hopefully that part will be edited. Other than that I was wired for sound the whole time and I kept the Road Kill banter going. Woodhauler seemed to handle the interview spot a little more professionally and then chatted with Doug all the way back to the car.

For me it was more than a story because I feel Doug genuinely had a good time. For that I am glad.

Note 11 Dec 2001    Mason City's 1st Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Just got word from a Mason City cacher (PainterGal) that "Mason City's 1st Cache" has been vandalized. All that was left was an empty RubberMaid container and shreaded & burnt logbook pages. I see no problem here. Just need a little time to re-establish it in a different location. Stay tuned.

I found it! 06 Dec 2001    Hogan's Hero's  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

Road Kill finds it first without his GPS. Out again on a lunch break I loaned the GPS to a 4th Geophite. So I'm the last to leave the path when the E-Trex goes oneway and a Garmin III plus and my Garmin II plus goes another. Road Kill chose the route between and hollered "Huckle-Buckle-Beanstalk" just before the III plus was about to burn the group. Bottom line Banjo, Bobcat, Woodhauler & Road Kill had a great time and didn't have to dodge 390 traffic to get there. I think we all swapped out but I took some wheresgeorge's and left two indian women. The cache is dry and in good shape . Thanks Quinn

I found it! 15 Nov 2001    Joannes Trek  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill and his co-workers make a noon trek for two caches. 1st to Wadhams Walk and then on to one of Gimpys treasures. It was over hill and over dales - wrong way again - never fails. One of the group had his heart set on beating Road Kill and managed to beat both of us older gents passed the cache. Needless to say he heard "Huckle Buckle Bean Stalk" from both older gents. Nice treasures here folks. Be sure to bring a valued trade item. Road Kill is grinning

I found it! 15 Nov 2001    Wadham's Walk  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill and co-workers make another noon hour trek and hit two caches. 1st here then on to Joannes' Trek. Again we picked the wrong approach. Why is it the paths are never where you expect them. But fun was had by all. Took three dollar bills and left three dollar coins. Sounds like an even trade to me. Road Kill is grinning. Thanks sis.

I found it! 27 Oct 2001    Tinker Toy Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1.5 )

Yes! Road Kill was here just last Tuesday noon with two co-workers. A fine cache and in good shape. Thank you Gimpy

I found it! 07 Oct 2001    HOGS BACK VISTAS  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was awed by the views. I was taking pictures and nearly forgot what I was there for. Sun going down at 5PM and leaves were in all their glory. Practically stepped on the cache while taking pictures. Oh Yes the cache box was stuffed but the 1st order of business was to take a photo with the cache hat. Not quite for Road Kill but I grinned anyway. (took 2 photos). I had to have the National Geographic Magazine and left in its place 2 gold dollars and a fishing lure. Not enough fish line the reach water anyway.
Road Kill is grinning

I found it! 29 Sept 2001    Penny's Point  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 2.5 )

Road Kill was here. In fact here a bit earlier but then too late. You see; both Penny and I had our eyes on this area. I had scouted it out, stuffed the ammo can, but kept putting it off. Bottom line I can highly recommend this location. A beautiful place where not many venture and it's at its best when visited in the morning sun. You might try this in the next 2 weekends while the trees are in full color. Oct. 6th & 7th or Oct. 13th & 14th. Penny you have a good eye.
Road Kill is grinning.

I found it! 22 Sept 2001    Cache Conesus  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was there. This was the 1st of 3 targets today. The Garmin II was stable all the way but indicated about 30 feet to the west of the cache. Even at that the choice of places to look was limited.
Other cachers indicated problems with rivers in their path but I had no such problems. Took a picture, took a cigar for my son and left some cinnimon Altoids & a Polly Pocket with her friends. According to my son the cigar is a fine one.
On to Stony Brook Cache for one of Rocky's challenges.
Road Kill is Grinning

I found it! 22 Sept 2001    Stony Brook State Park Geocache  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 3 )

This was the toughest find of the day. I shearched for more than 45 minutes with good hiding spots all over the place. I was about to give up but then again I wasn't about to be skunked by Rocky. This guy likes backwoods, steep slopes and Rocks. I turned over quite a few rocks.
Took a picture, took a balloon canister and left splash bombs with a bag of toys.
Rocky - My complments. I do like-um tough.
Road Kill is grinning

I found it! 22 Sept 2001    1856 Mule Path  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Surprize! Road Kill was here. This was my 3rd and last cache of the day. Swinging down from Cache Conesus, I also hit Rocky's Stony Brook. These locks are something. I never looked at them up close and always thought they were in rougher shape.
Warning! You may want to wear a heavy long sleeve shirt because there are these rose bush like vines that jump out into your path to slow you down.
Took a flash picture because it was starting to get dark, took a travelers tooth pick thingy and left a squirt gun and a bag of cowboys & indians.
Tired and headed for home, Road Kill is still grinning.

I found it! 17 Jun 2001    Isabel's Part 1 of 2  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Found her in good spirits and had no idea what the numbers she told were for. Jotted them down and said Hi to the rest of the family.

I found it! 17 Jun 2001    Isabel's Treasure Part 2 of 2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Being Fathers Day, my daughter and son-in-law offered to join me on a cache hunt. Little did they know of my intentions to use them to distract the skeeters as I signed the log books. This short tour hit Morgan's Adventure and Isabel's 1&2 in that order. For a lack of better words Isabel's Treasure was pleasent. We spent equal time at both sites by milling around at the first staying ahead of the skeeters at the second.
Found the cache in fine shape. Took a picture of the 3 of us, took a minnie mouse key chain and left finger nail clippers. Also swapped out some of yardboys George's (3 in 3 out).

I found it! 17 Jun 2001    Morgans Adventure  ( Difficulty: 1.5    Terrain: 1.5 )

Todays short tour hit Morgan's Adventure and Isabel's 1&2 in that order. Being Fathers Day, my daughter and son-in-law offered to join me on this cache hunt. Little did they know that my intentions were to use them to distract the skeeters as I signed the log books. In typical caching fashion we followed the GPS arrow straight to the cache. This route was an initiation for my guest to the excitment of forging their way through some of the best dense brush of the area. Soon mosquitos caught wind of the sweat and fresh blood from the scratches. While Road Kill was eager to find the cache, they were very delighted just to find a path. Once on the path they were off like bloodhounds. Soon I heard their cry: Huckle-Buckle-Bean-Stalk.
Took a picture, Took a compass, and left a sleeve of golf balls.

I found it! 09 Jun 2001    Mendon Ponds Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Guess what. Still more daylight and only half eaten by skeeters. So I was drawn into another after picnic cache. Found this one just off the path I didn't take again. Gimpy I'm beginning to think you have that in mind with all your caches. And a good hiding spot to boot. I liked it. Took a picture as people were walking by. I don't know why they looked at me so puzzled. I wasn't wearing my hat. Took some nail clippers and left a tin of Altoids. With a fine picnic and 3 caches for the day, Road Kill went home grinning.

I found it! 09 Jun 2001    Mendon Ponds #2  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

I found out that an after picnic cache is as enjoyable as an after dinner mint. What's a navicacher to do with 2 more hours of daylight. This one seemed to be isolated to say the least. I did cross a few paths and I heard people talking but I never found the path they were on. Swapped out a puzzle CD for a five spot if anybody is interested. By the way I got a chance to try Rbowters Skeeter siren. At first I thought it was working but then found I had to hit them with it to get them to move. I sprayed some deet and moved on (Grinning)

I found it! 09 Jun 2001    Mendon Ponds Deer  ( Difficulty: 2.5    Terrain: 1 )

My hat's off to Gamma Kitt & Coyote (and Angel too) for a great hide. This one will show you that there are still a lot of good spots out there. Took a picture and a puzzle and left some splash bombs. I wasn't going to rub it in. (Road Kill says as he grinns) But! Lets just say Quinnow now knows what Huckle Buckle Bean Stalk means.
Still grinning.

I found it! 25 May 2001    Crescent Hill  ( Difficulty: 1    Terrain: 1.5 )

News Flash! Road Kill sneaks back from Chicago to raid two new local caches. Huckle Buckle Bean Stalk! HeHeHe. Road Kill is grinning. Excellent location. After about 10 minutes of walking by it, past it and over it 3 or 4 times I couldn't believe it was in plain site. But I wasn't out witted by the Blackwatch Clan after all. I took a beany lobster thing and won't say what I left. After I found the cache - I found the knee deep poison ivy patch and a scenic bench. There was a lot of overcast but I clicked off a picture anyway. To anyone living in Rochester - you might be able to see your house from here.
Road Kill is grinning.

I found it! 28 Apr 2001    Klipnocky State Forest Geocache  ( Difficulty: 4.5    Terrain: 3 )

Boy did I ever luck out with my approach. I found a trail from the car to 15 feet of the cache. That's all I'll reveal here. I will say if you see an old tire on the left of the trail about half way on your walk, then you've taken the same trail I found. Don't need to look it's not an any maps I've found. Other than the breeze this place is quiet. Wanted to take the little stuffed puppy but change to a magnifying glass and left a desk Triva Calender. There is very little air space in this 30 cal. ammo can. A great nature walk.

I found it! 20 Apr 2001    Gimpys Walk  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 3 )

Road Kill was here.
Acheaved the goal with handicap. Namely my GPS quit(low batteries). Had to resort to photos and knowledge of topo maps perused the day before. Went to top of hill indicated by recalled topo and looked down bank. I was lucky enough to be looking straight down on it matching photo. Took snake left batteries. Yes! I held off opening them for my own needs. Another 5 minutes and they would have been in MY GPS and I wouldn't have had a trade item. This was my first visit to this very nice park. Before I realized it I had walked through a frisbee golf course and in the middle of play.

I found it! 16 Apr 2001    Ghost's Domain  ( Difficulty: 2    Terrain: 1.5 )

Nice spot, but our foursome desended on it like vultures at an elk funeral. Traded in four splash bombs and four AA batteries for a power stone, ball and trivia calender. This one is great for the first time GPS user. I'd give it a 1 for difficulty and 1 for terrain.

I found it! 25 Mar 2001    Northhampton Cache  ( Difficulty: 3    Terrain: 1 )

To George of Navicache
Road Kill was there. I got your E-mail and it was probably me that had unsuccessfully logged on before. My main problem was with setting up an account and logging in. I don't know what I was doing wrong but I think I'm in now.
To others who may read this:
I've already told the owner what a pleasent place this was. For me it was my first find and I'd rate it easy to find (1)and easy terrain (1). I suggest taking a youngster in the early morning or evening to see the deer there.
