Well after several delays and a couple scrapped plans it looks like I'll be heading to the home of Navicache the weekend of August 24.  (unless something changes here or the entire Navicache clan is on vacation).  I'll probably leave Erie friday (23rd) evening around 5:00 or so and can spend Saturday, Sunday, and most of Monday out there.  I'm looking forward to hitting all the great navicaches out there but even more so to meeting and spending time with all of you.  

I'll email the progressive dinner cache thingy folks that DX mentioned.   Hopefully I'll be able to meet most of you.

Bummer! I won't be getting back from my Cape Cod vacation until late Sunday night, the 25th. I'll keep an eye on your posts, & make sure I catch up with you somewhere. ???

I will be having a shoulder operation on the 21st so unless my happy pills wear off I should be good to go  :)  I'll have no less than 8 weeks of caching to do while out of work... looks like xmas comes early for me  :xmas  . Looking forward to meeting you. :wave

:0 I'll be at Letchworth State Park for the Stone Tool Show (in Road Kill dress) all day Saturday the 24th.  May be I'll pack the GPS in the car just in case the chimster swings by. :grinnin

PS I have the coordinates for 14 caches within the park. Hint Hint.

I hope I'm still on the dinner list. The offer still open.

Hey!  Cachers are the best group of people  :grinnin

Last weekend we spent the day at the Syracuse caching event...the entire family had an excellent day...Butterfly girl was noticed while cacheing (when you are on the slight side that really makes your day), Eversure arrived at a cache box location and grabbed the box while 5 searching cachers stood amazed (def a way to keep a 12 year old caching!), Sweety gal met Mrs. Hinge Thunder and puppy. they made her day by being so friendly and patient with our gal, Fearless scoped out all the new GPS...(man magellian makes some way cool products...and this from a garmin user) and I located a cache box while 10, err 20 no it was more like 50 (ok I can have my "fish" stories to!) frantically searched....SOOOOOOO kool to quietly say "I found it" and do a little victory dance......esp when the cacher who hid the only cache that I have listed as a non find was still looking  :^:

And now we get to meet up with the famous Erie cacher...goes bye the  chimster ???  Bonus!!

We are taking Sweety Gal to Camp Kawanis on the 24th.  She has the option to ride a bus from Buffalo or we can drive her to cradel beach........

So the 23rd or the 25th are the best for us.......you can catch us comming or go.........

We are all hoping to catch up on Tolkien trivia.......
Current ? in our house
*What is the correct way to say Tolkien?
*Were Orks made from Elfs gone bad?
*What rank is Radagast in Comparison with Gandalf and Sauruman?
*Didn't the Hobbits ever get "cold feet".

so should be a great time..........Ribs for dinner?

Please delete "Penny's Point" from the list.  It's archived due to a large timber rattler that's taken up residence at the cache site.  Last seen August 4, still there a month after the first sightings. This is it, photo thanks to rojar61.

DX,

Friday sounds great.  I'll do my best to answer all your Tolkien questions.  
Roadkill hows Saturday for you, figure I'll spend saturday mourning hitting DX's caches then head to letchworth and hit those saturday night I'll take you up on your offer.
Gimpy I'll probably be around til monday night so we'll definately have time.
Quinn 8 weeks of caching seems a small price to pay.  So it looks like Friday at DX's, Saturday possibly at Roadkills.  Still have all day Sunday and Monday so I've should have plenty of time to hang with everyone.  Plus hit the caches.  Thanks for the heads up on the cache barrington, though I'd like to see that guy in person.  Didn't know you had rattlers in Letchworth.  

Do all you guys live close enough that everyone could get together for a drink or two or lunch or dinner?

Yes, I have that spare bed for Saturday night.

To Mike & everyone else out there: The Stone Tool Show runs from 10 AM to 5 PM at Letchworth. { N42° 43.650'   W77° 55.135' }  I'll be there Saturday with my avatar fox hat and Moccasins (hee Hee.  like a dozen or so others).  Many there know me as Road Kill as well, so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding me.  :wave

I haven't worked a time frame with Mikechim yet but around 7PM (a bit late for most) I'll hold a cachers chat at my place.
{ N42° 42.365 by W78° 01.173 }
I’m thinking to have an impromptu bon-fire type thing. BYO Beverage and chips.

My intent is to open the door for others to visit with Mike while he's in town. So you can come to the stone tool show and look us up - and/or - stop by a moment at my back yard cachers chat.   :grinnin

Sounds great Roadkill!

Sounds like a great time, hope to meet everyone there.

I figure I'll be in the area til monday (not sure what time monday) and I'd like to hit at least one cache from everyone.  PLanning on hitting DX's caches friday or Saturday mourning, all the letchworth ones saturday, and then we'll see from there.  If you've put out a cache that you think is really good, or is just your favorite let me know and I'll add it to my list.

I'm here with DX right now, heading to letchworth tomorrow, not sure what time I'll exactly get in, I'm thinking of hitting the caches in order til I find Roadkill but I may just drop in and say hi to him first.  Dx and family may be coming out as well.  Hope to meet everyone, wonder if the weather will hold out for the stone tool show or the campfire/meeting at roadkill's.

Hanging with roadkill, got to see the hat upclose and met balloon pilot and chicken lips, probably head up to rochester tomorrow (sunday).  Going after some caches by Quinn, Gimpy, and Hinge.

and if you've got time for multi-stage NaviCaches that take 1/2 a day, elementary math, and a knowledge of current events  :smart

Upinyachit has quite a selection of caches out there too.:wave
I know you are probably pressing for time and would like to find them all.  Anyways, have a great time while in Rochester.

Hi guys,

Yep I had actually planned on hitting the Steve Irwin experience but as you guessed ran out of time.  I left Letchworth without finding all of them, really wanted to hit hogsback but didn't, and didn't get to rochester til around 2:00.

I did hit 3 of Quinn's and 2 of Hinge's.  But unfortunately ran out of time for yours, gimpy's (sorry buddy it didn't end up being on the route), rocky's, barrington, yardboy, chickenlips & balloon pilots, and all the forum folks.  I'll definately be back though, probably at the latest for the letchworth picnic, but I'd like to head out again before then.  The area has one of the largest concentrations of quality caches I've scene.  And I've pretty much tapped out from my area to a little east of cleveland and a little north of pittsburgh.  And of course I'd like to meet everyone as well, had a great time with the Hilton Family, Roadkill, and Balloon Pilot and Chicken Lips.  
Just want to thank the Hilton's and Roadkill again.  

Iif anyone is heading out this way let me know, besides the LOTR cache and my others I'm ready to put out a new one to entice you guys, between 5 and 10 miles (I'm not telling), tons of waypoints, puzzles, plus a couple other surprises.  Been working on it for a few months, It's all laid out, and loosely based on  my travels,  just have to actually find time to place the bad boy.

Roadkill even schooled me in Huckle Buckle beenstalk, he beat me like a red-headed step-child in k-mart with spaghetti sauce on his face and one shoelace untied!

Then just sat there grinning!  While I searched for it forever and a day.  

Ahh well, I did find Leprechaun's treasure in about 5 minutes, without knowing anything about it and without doing it by accident, so that made me feel a bit better.

As promised here is my List of excuses for why roadkill huckle buckled me so badly  :D

10) my gps has been acting up.
9) didn't want to get it first and upset my host, kind of like purposely loosing in golf to the boss
8) The sun/clouds/bugs/rain/branches/got in my eyes.
7)  The dirt roadkill threw at me, got in my eyes.
6)  The snake from Penny's Point had relocated and was pissed, I got bit after throwing myself between roadkill and the snake, and Roadkill laughing gleefully continued on to the cache as I writhed in agony.
5)  Roadkill had snuck out the night before and located the cache just so he could say "huckle buckle beanstalk".
4)  Roadkill printed me up a fake cache sheet with the wrong waypoints
3) he also demagnetized my compass via a rare mountain man ritual.
2) A bus full of chearleaders arrived so I was otherwise occupied (ohh by the way roadkill, as I was heading down the falls to be a pimp daddy, about 30 seconds after you left, her boyfriend materialized out of nowhere, guess he had been right down in the river or hidden under the cliff below her.  :angry:, ohh well)

and the number 1 reason, drum roll please  ....................................................................................
........................................................................
1) I was intimated by the hat !

To be fair Hinge, I have a few things set up very similiar in one of mine, though I have to admit your execution was far superior to mine.
I also hit Troll's treasure, "the hardest cache in Rochester" I'll pm you about that one, that one took me forever I had a much harder time with it then with Leprechauns.
