Snowcaching II: Long Island

Looks like no one else was geocaching on Long Island today or yesterday because I was first to three caches! Was everyone staying home just because of a few inches of snow on the ground? Anyway, here's more proof that it is possible to find caches even after a snowstorm. For many caches, it's not that difficult. If you can identify the most likely hiding spot, patting down the snow there should yield the cache.

Today's trip consisted of heading East on LI hitting caches along the way and ending on the North Fork. On the way back, I took a look at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Riverhead and had dinner (late lunch, actually) at the Long John Silver's and A&W restaurant in West Islip. Yes, fish and root beer again. :)

Also noted some gas prices for New York Gas Prices and New York State Gas Prices. This has the potential to be very confusing because the former refers to the New York City Metro Area and covers parts of Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland Counties and parts of New Jersey and Connecticut in addition to the five boroughs. The latter covers everywhere else in NY State. I made a mistake and put a Mattituck gas station in the metro area site. Mattituck is way over at the east end of LI! No way to fix that. Oops. Never mind. It'll expire in 96 hours anyway.
