I was planning to find cache #8000 in Pittsburgh but I'm a few days early because I actually hit that milestone today at "Edge of Enchantment" in Watchung Reservation. Should've stopped there but I couldn't resist bagging another one just before dusk, so I'm up to 8001 now.
Anyway, it was a hot sunny day with a high temperature around 90°F. I went to Central Jersey. I was surprised that, despite the heat and thick brush growth, I encountered no ticks and very few mosquitoes. Came across something else though. I was at a cache site in Westfield pacing the ground to figure out whether the GPS zero was closer to the gazebo or the tree, when I saw a few dollar bills on the grass. So, instead of cache, I found cash. :) (Well, okay, I did also find the cache soon after that.)
Dinner was a toasted Italian sub combo at Arby's in Watchung since I wasn't far from that Arby's at the end of the 13-cache tour.( The caches...Collapse )
