Nice day out, even if it was getting chilly. The longest hike of the bunch was a 4-mile round trip to visit 3 caches in Warbler Woods and Fox Lair. My guess is I could have moved the car after the first cache to park closer to the other two but I thought it would be better to just do the walk. Shortest hike was... well, the roadside one in Floral Park. (about 30 feet from the road)

Very light traffic on the way home. Must have been too nippy for the Hamptons crowd. I saw a sign on the George Washington Bridge saying "Camera Use Prohibited". I'm not sure when that sign was added but I guess it's official now: taking pictures is terrorism. Never mind that the bridge already appears in some movies, on the web and on postcards.

New glitch in the GPS receiver: Turning on the backlight now shuts off the display, so it becomes a backlit nothing. Not a serious problem since I usually just point the flashlight at the GPS to read it in the dark in order to conserve battery power.

Hundreds of Smiles (New York)
Roadside in Floral Park.

Ghost of Sweet Hollow (New York)
West Hills County Park in Melville. Uphill walk on sandy horse trails. Met Macatac1961 on my way in.

2 Birds with 1 Stone (New York)
Frazer Drive Park in Greenlawn.

Mac-32 Warbler Woods (New York)
Warbler Woods in Yaphank.

JMB-70 Fox Lair (New York)
Fox Lair in Yaphank.

JMB-71 Wild Turkey (New York)
Warbler Woods and Fox Lair in Yaphank. The two stages are interleaved with the other two caches if you do them in the logical order.

WRR-22 Shirley Beach Micro (New York)
Playground/beach in Shirley. According to the sign, the location is monitored 24 hours a day by camera. What exactly are they afraid of? That someone will hide a geocache there? Maybe by now they already know that there's a geocache there as I took it to the play area and spread out the stuff.

WRR-21 Upper Red Creek Road (New York)
Suffolk County Parklands in Flanders. The whole place looks windblown. By that, I mean trees are sparse and misshapened. An interesting location.
