Eastern Shore Maryland, DE Furbowl, Bucks and Montgomery

On Saturday, I went out to do some geocaches in Newark and Bear that I couldn't do after work on weekdays because of earlier sunsets. Two of those were unavailable because a football game in University of Delaware filled pretty much every parking space within a mile of the stadium but I was able to do the other four, plus one extra ("Get To The Point!") on the C&D Canal that used to be missing but had been replaced. Then I toured the Eastern Shore of Maryland through the towns of Cecilton, Kennedyville, Betterton, Worton, Chestertown, and Church Hill. This is a very sparse area in geocaches and also in population, but I hadn't explored very much of it so there were some geocaches to do here and there. In the evening, I headed back to Northern Delaware to attend DE Furbowl XL. I'd underestimated how far away I had gotten from my home area, so I was late to the event but it was still a good time.

On Sunday, I went to the Bucks/Montgomery county line area (towns of Willow Grove, Warminster, Southampton, Huntingdon Valley) again to continue the geocaches I was doing two weeks ago. There weren't as many left but I figured with the shorter daylight after the end of Daylight Saving Time, I wouldn't have time for as many geocaches anyway. "Die Berliner Mauer" was an interesting two-stage cache because the first stage took me to a piece of the Berlin Wall at a German Club in Warminster. Hurricane Sandy seems to have done some significant damage to this area. There are many fallen trees, including one that I suspect fell on a cache, although I didn't investigate further because the landscapers had arrived to clean up the area. Some roads and bridges were closed for repairs too.
