NYC + Long Island

Somewhat different route this Sunday. Went from Central Jersey into Staten Island, and then Brooklyn and further East into the rest of Long Island. Traffic was HEAVY. More so than usual for a Sunday. Probably the nice weather is sending everyone out to the beaches. Highway construction all around the city and that accident on the NJ Turnpike didn't help matters.

Anyway, because of the traffic, I didn't get to do all the caches I wanted but I still got 8 out of 11 attempted. Of the 3 not found, 2 of them were microcaches with not enough info and I didn't feel like combing the flowerbeds. And the 3rd cache I could not found was in an area where most of the trees had been chopped down so I don't think it's there any more.

Southern Exposure (New York)
Beach area. Southern tip of Staten Island. Microcache hidden in an area with thousands of hiding spots so I had to employ some indirect reasoning.

Serpentinite (New York)
On a Serpentinite hill in Staten Island.

Brooklyn Weepers (New York)
Street-side in Brooklyn.

Lost and (Hopefully) Found (New York)
Percy Raynor Memorial Park in Centereach.

WRR-16 Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Park (New York)
Memorial Park in East Moriches.

WRR-17 Bald Hill County Park (New York)
Peconic Hills County Park in Riverhead.

Mac-27 (New York)
Peconic Bog County Park in Riverhead.

Enziarro's First Cache - Ridiculously Small Micro (New York)
Queens Village in Queens. This is enziarro's cache. Did it at night because at all hours during the day, there is someone sitting right there fixing tires.

And finally, according to some fellow geocachers, I was indeed on the WB-11 News, along with a number of others who were at the picnic. Haven't seen that myself because I was late coming home but I think someone will be putting the video up on the web soon.
