I'm lost and I'm found

Because of high gas prices, I decided in favor of doing some longer caches nearby before heading down the Jersey Shore. So I only got as far as Brick, which is okay.

The police came by to see what I was doing while I was at one of the cache sites. So I explained geocaching and showed them the cache sheet. And then one of them said, "Get out of here! That's so cool!" Okay, so that's the last reaction I expected. They radioed in the geocaching website URL, so they may be checking out some geocaches in the Belmar area later. I also told them where I was going to next, and they informed me about a bridge that was closed and suggested an alternate route. So that was helpful.

I finally got the pesky "Show Me A Sign" cache, which I couldn't do the last time because it is practically next to where the recycling center attendant sits. It wouldn't be a problem now because, according to the logs, the attendant has found out about the cache! Nevertheless, I was there later in the evening when no one was around, and so it was a cinch.
