West Milford, way out in the boonies

Just did one geocache this evening but I was curious about the location because it was rather isolated. Even though it was less than 20 miles from home, it took me 50 minutes to get there because there was no direct road and because quite a bit of the drive after leaving I-287 was along winding roads through areas that were mostly woods. Finally, I arrived at the Pow-Wow geocache site. It was by a creek. I climbed down the steep rocky slope from the road and found the geocache after searching for a bit.

After that, I went home a different way so that I could stop at Paramus Park Mall for dinner. Still had a bunch of coupons to use. This time, I got two hot dogs from Nathan's and a 6" sweet onion chicken teriyaki sub from Subway. My order at Subway was for a Fresh Value Meal, which includes a drink and chips. However, the duplicitous fellow behind the counter only handed me the sandwich and drink, hoping that I would just walk away without the chips. I called him on his "oversight" and then he did give me the chips, but I really wish people would be straightforward and not try to get me in some way. That would make it much easier to do business with them. Having to be wary all the time makes it harder to spend money.
