Freehold, not Leasehold

I never had much of a reason to visit Freehold before, but now someone has started placing geocaches in and around this town. So I used US-9, which passes through Freehold, for a good long distance, saving some Parkway tolls.

The most interesting thing today was the abandoned motorcycle on the way to "The Cache" (okay, that's not the most original name) at the Manasquan Reservoir. I've seen that motorcycle before, but it actually looks better now that it is propped up in a standing position with front wheel elevated. See? Presentation matters, even in the middle of the woods.

Filled up at the Valero gas station near home. The pump attendant said "I think you work at a Chinese food store, right?" Ummm.... no, although it would be much easier to distribute Where's George dollar bills if I did work at such a business.

Then someone pulled up to the next gas pump and called out "Extortion!" People here are funny.
