Pennsylvania

Went to to Mercer, Bucks, Philadelphia and Chester Counties as planned. Got 10 out of 14 caches, which isn't great but I think at least one of them may have been stolen recently.

Met McQ, a local geocacher, at Tamanend Park. It was a good thing he got there as I didn't know the cache coordinates had been corrected. However, he didn't have the updated info as he was just there to try to find the cache on the way to the supermarket. (ah, someone who understands the addiction :) ) So I used my cell phone to retrieve the new coordinates with wireless web access. Worked great and we did find the cache.

One weird thing that happened is I was at Edge Hill Woods going back downhill to the street when I came face-to-face with someone in a full police-type uniform. I was wondering what I did wrong but it turned out that he wasn't there to question anyone or investigate anything. He was just going for a walk in the afternoon, up a steep trail and in uniform. How odd.

The caches...Collapse )
