Because finding 26 geocaches over the weekend was not enough, I went to the Along the Goffle geocache this evening. It is a five-stage multicache in five different parts of Goffle Brook Park in Hawthorne. I've been to this park several times before for other geocaches, but apparently those have been archived. In fact, I know at least one of the spots in this multicache is pretty close to a former cache location. Anyway, it was a fun dash and I just made it to the final stage 15 minutes before dusk. I signed the log at 8:01pm on 8/1. Coincidence? I think so!

Then I went to CompUSA to see if they had any free-after-rebate items. As I was looking around, I saw that they had some USB Serial adapters, which would be useful for connecting the GPS to the laptop, which I can't do right now because the laptop doesn't have serial ports. However, I saw that they also had a port replicator that gives you a serial port, a parallel port, and more USB ports from a USB port. That would be even more useful. But there wasn't a price tag on the shelf for it and the store was closing, so I just noted down the info to look for it online later, where it'll probably be cheaper. I think they lose some impulse buys by not having complete information.

Then I went to Boston Market to use a coupon on a chicken pot pie individual meal.

Came home and saw in the mail that there was a settlement in a shareholder class action lawsuit. Provided I can locate some old brokerage statements and submit the claim on time, I can get $8. We're in the money. :) I'll go and check my large plastic tub filing system later.
