Geraldo Rivera and his mustache coming soon to WNY via the Erie Canal

Don't keep this news in a vault: Geraldo Rivera is coming to Western New York – by boat.

The mustachioed Fox News contributor is riding along the full length of the Erie Canal, Rivera said in a tweet Monday. Instead of a mule named Sal, he's bringing his brother, Craig.

The Albany Times-Union spotted Rivera at Lock 2 in Waterford earlier Tuesday, waiting for the canal to open for the season.

It's not clear when Rivera will make his way out to this area. Tuesday afternoon, he tweeted that the brothers had made it to Niskayuna in the Capital District.

He started his trip in the New York City area, went up the Hudson River to the Albany area and plans to end the trip in Cleveland via Lake Erie.

People who spotted the news about Rivera already are giving him suggestions about where to go while he's here.

Of course, people who are at least 40 best remember the feisty veteran newsman for his splashy news special that promised to reveal the secrets of Al Capone's vault but famously failed to deliver.
