face tree


Sunny, 32-36°F. Nearly all the snow had disappeared by the time I woke up this morning, at least for areas like my yard with Southern exposure. I had a busy morning, so I only got out in the early afternoon. My goal today was page 68 of the NJ DeLorme Challenge and the first geocache of the day, just outside Bridgeton, qualified. Then I did a few geocaches in Bridgeton and a few more deeper in page 68, near but not in the Bevan WMA.

More pickup truck perils: I was following a pickup truck on Route 77 just outside of Bridgeton. The truck was carrying a variety of wooden furniture. Suddenly, a chair tipped over, fell off the truck, and shattered to pieces on the road. Because of the direction it fell out, I was in no danger but if there had been oncoming traffic at the time, things would've gotten ugly.

For dinner, I headed back into Delaware to Cici's Pizza to use a coupon I'd been saving for a while. I hadn't been to the Newark Cici's in a while, so I was surprised when I turned on the Nuvi 295W and saw that Comcast had installed a new wi-fi hotspot right next to Cici's! (Now, if Comcast would install another hotspot next to Old Country Buffet then coverage would be complete, as far as I'm concerned. :) ) The new manager at Cici's is rather chatty and talks to customers a lot. He told me that the onion pizza will put hair on your chest!

The caches...Collapse )
