South Jersey Day 2

Went to South Jersey again, this time on the Philadelphia side. And once again, I went to Wawa 3 times, in Columbus, Pemberton, and Cherry Hill. In Columbus, I got iced tea and stuffed pretzels for the whole day. In Pemberton, I thought it would be good to have an ice cream after a 1.5-mile walk. And Cherry Hill was the usual dinner before heading back onto the Turnpike.

Anyway, I finished the geocaches in Juliustown, Pemberton, and Smithville, doing them all one by one, without skipping and regardless of difficulty and length of hike. Then I went over to Medford, and that's when things speeded up. Did the last 7 geocaches in the remaining 2 hours before sunset. Most of them were close to the road, but some were intended to be tricky. However, I've seen those tricks before so they turned out to be quick finds.

On my way home, there was a horrible traffic delay on the Turnpike. That was at 10pm at night! I don't think there was an accident or construction or anything. It's just the usual Summer congestion that gets worse every year. So I had to use US-130 to bypass the slow part of the Turnpike.
