The rest of Thanksgiving Weekend (Friday)

Rained on and off today. Pretty much rained when I was out on the trails and stopped raining when I was driving. Ugh. So it was a dull and gloomy day but very productive in terms of finding geocaches. Did a run through Bucks, Montgomery and Chester Counties in Pennsylvania. And dinner was at the Wawa in Florence, NJ on the way home.

A Trip Down Memory Lane (Pennsylvania)
Oxford Valley Park in Fairless Hills. It's surprising how close that 7-Eleven was to the cache. Therefore, I managed to park closer than the two recommended parking areas.

Along The Tracks (Pennsylvania)
Abandoned railroad track in Huntington Valley. It is, however, an official trail because a trash barrel was provided at the trailhead.

Grove Park I (Pennsylvania)
Grove Park in Glenside. Pretty much next to a bunch of backyards. What's the point in that?

Everybody's Cache (Pennsylvania)
Lukens Park in Horsham. Named after Everybody's Playground in that park. The playground is handicapped accessible, hence its name.

Riverjet 2 (Pennsylvania)
Loch Alsh Reservoir in Upper Dublin. Got a picture of the foggy reservoir. It's been dull and grey like that pretty much all day.

KING of the ROAD (I-76 W) (Pennsylvania)
Westbound Valley Forge Service Area on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Simple rest area microcache. Easy pickup.

Shock the Monkey (Pennsylvania)
Neighborhood park and powerlines right of way in Berwyn.

Spice Dice (Pennsylvania)
Open space area in Berwyn. This is just across the railroad tracks (only 0.13 of a mile away) from the previous cache but in order not to cross the tracks, I approached from the opposite direction.

MOON (Pennsylvania)
Rail trail near Exton Station in Exton. Picture: new tracks as seen from the old tracks

Indian King (Pennsylvania)
West Whiteland Park in Exton. "Indian King" appears to be the name of the subdivision next to the park.

WCU Rams Cache (Pennsylvania)
West Chester University athletics field. Way too obvious cache. Hope it doesn't get stolen.

MADELYNN'S CACHE (Pennsylvania)
Everhart Park in the middle of West Chester. Needed a flashlight because I didn't want to feel around in those dark places.

SBUX Nature CALLS (Pennsylvania)
Eastbound Valley Forge Service Area on the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Another easy pickup just like the cache on the other side of the highway.
