Long Island

10 yesterday. And 10 today... in Long Island. Wasted some time not finding 3 geocaches but the rest went very quickly. In addition, I met Macatac at one of the caches. One by one, I'll run into all the Long Island geocachers. Wonder when the next picnic will be.

Encountered multiple traffic delays on the way home. I thought it would be smooth sailing since I was going home rather late at night but that wasn't to be. The Southern State Parkway itself was the cause of one of the traffic delays. There is a rise Eastbound between Exits 18 and 17. What happens is someone sees a horizon all of a sudden (Oh no! We're about to drive off the edge of the Earth!) and taps on the brakes. That sets off a chain reaction of brake-tapping until traffic comes nearly to a standstill. And this problem is only going to get worse as the volume of traffic increases.
