It rained today but in the evening, I visited a nearby park to see if there's a suitable spot for a geocache. It's a suburban park that is mostly football field and tennis courts. However, I went around to the back of the tennis courts and yes, there is a trail leading into the wooded area. Not a very large wooded area though. I'd say you can walk 500 feet one way or 800 feet the other way before hitting a fence or someone's yard or the Garden State Parkway. Also, it's probably a good idea to stay some distance away from the fence and the Parkway so the potential hiding area is further limited. I'll look around again back there another evening. (Actually, I'm hoping someone else will hide a cache there and do the hard work of finding a suitable spot. :) )

Saw a car stuck on the median at the intersection of Lake St and Route 17. The ramp may have been a bit slick from the rain. Had to wait a few minutes while they tried to get the car back onto the road but they did manage to do that without too much apparent damage to the car.

Borrowed from shockwave77598:

Name a CD you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Rusted Root - When I Woke.

Actually, if you want to get really obscure, I have a CD from Taiwan that's mostly in Chinese so I can't understand it. Apparently, that's my contributor's copy because they used my artwork.

Name a book you own that no-one else on your friends list does:
Stepping Westward by Malcolm Bradbury.

Name a movie you own on DVD/VHS/whatever that no-one else on your friends list does:
"The 39 Steps" I may have already given it away. Can't remember, but if that's missing, I also have "Harvey", the Jimmy Stewart movie where he has an imaginary rabbit friend.

Name a place that you have visited that no-one else on your friends list has:
Pagoh, Johor, Malaysia -- the home of dish-water noodles.

Name a piece of clothing that no-one else on your friends list has:
Unicorn costume. (Well, okay I can see a few of you having this kind of thing. :) )

Name an occupation that you've had that no-one else on your friends list has had:
You got me. I don't think any job I've had is at all uncommon.
