Lancaster XXXIII - More Battleship and more Enola Rail Trail

Cloudy, 70-75°F. There was a chance of rain today so I figured I'd go to Lancaster and continue with the Battleship series of geocaches since most of those are fairly easy and close to parking. It ended up not raining until the evening, so it was a cloudy, cool day and great for walking the Enola low-grade trail.

This time, I near the Atglen end of the rail trail. I knew this section didn't get flooded last week because it is higher than the surrounding land. I took an 8-mile walk and found 39 caches along the trail. Met a bunch of geocachers, including H2"O", Pitch Black, and Benam Benam 3. Also talked to a non-geocacher who was walking three beagles on the rail trail. From what I saw, it's hard to walk dogs who are easily distracted. They stop and look at everything, including me when I was behind the utility pole getting the cache.

After I left the rail trail, I continued with the original plan of finding more Battleship series caches. This time, I toured the northeast part of the county, through East Earl, Blue Ball, New Holland, West Earl, and Leola. It started raining when I was at the 56th cache of the day, but it was dusk and time for dinner anyway. I went to Ruby Tuesday in Lancaster and ordered salad bar. I'd have gotten something else but they'd changed their menu so I couldn't get one of the salad bar combos at dinner time. No matter. I was really there just for the salad bar anyway. After dinner, I did one more geocache since it was on the way home. It's near the Fulton Steamboat, a bizarre hotel that looks like a riverboat.
