This Thanksgiving family & I will be in Rochester. I'm planning a trip down to the farm I lived on as a child back in the 70's. It was located on County Road 143 between Interlaken & Lodi near W. Town Line Road.

At the time we owned 175 acres, but appears now to have a few different lots. I remember a gorge running through the 30 acre wooded section.

Although things have changed a bit since I was there, pretty sure we've identified the property on Microsoft's Live Search Maps. Anyone from around that area? Think the owners would mind if I knocked on the door and asked to take a look around? The house was on the map as far back as 1837.

Either way, I'm excited about revisiting my childhood home

I was there from 75-80 and was only a kid. I remember going to the bowling alley and to the Rongovian Embassy (or was it Inn?). A dive of a place that my parents dragged us to.
