To cut down on driving, I also took advantage of multiple geocaches in the same park as much as possible. The first 4 were all in Kitchawan Preserve, so I did a loop hike and got them all. Then I went to Muscoot Farm and there were two more. (although I did move the car out to a side street because it would've been a 2-mile walk otherwise)
After that, I went further North to Putnam County, which seems to remind me of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee for some reason. Once again, there was a pair of geocaches in the Sterling Farm Preserve. Finished up with one last quick geocache at the Newburgh waterfront, before dinner at the LJS/KFC hybrid restaurant in New Windsor.
