Deep South Jersey and FSC start

The First State Challenge geocaches were released early Saturday morning. I decided not to go for those right away and instead went to South Jersey to get some of those geocaches that have been piling up over the summer months. (I'd been avoiding that area because of the chigger infestation problem, although I'm not really sure how many of those cache sites are actually in the problem zone.) Anyway, this trip took me through Salem, Alloway, Stow Neck, Bridgeton, Vineland, Buena, and Millville. Most of the cache sites, including the TWD series, were at cemeteries, but there was one hidden on a tractor!

On Sunday, I started doing the FSC caches in Newark, Bear, Smyrna, and Dover. I wasn't interested in qualifying this year so I took my time and got 6 out of the required 10 in Northern DE and 2 in Southern DE, mixing it up with some non-FSC geocaches along the way. All the caches were small or regular sized and some were nicely decorated. There were some FSC cache sites that were new to me, like the DASEF brontosaurus, but I think some, like the concrete pier ruins at Port Mahon, were repeated from previous years. "Wilson Meets Holly" was a cache that I was glad to finally find. It's in a residential area very close to someone's garage, so I was wary about searching for it. But as soon as I found out that the neighbor knew about the cache, it wasn't a problem. He was outside doing some yardwork, so I asked him about the cache. He told me which side of the group of trees it was on and then I saw it in a few seconds. I'm so glad some of the locals are helpful.
