Return to The Forgotten Borough

After yesterday's split day, today was a sandwich day. I did one geocache in Central Jersey. Then I crossed over to Staten Island to get 11 more geocaches. Then I finished up with one last geocache in Central Jersey.

It's odd that a trip to Staten Island consumes far less gas than a trip to Westchester. That has to be because the inter-cache distance is very low. You can't go very far without hitting water or a bridge.

The last cache happened to be right outside the Mongolian BBQ in Millburn, so I figured I might as well go in and have dinner there. Aside from the on-the-spot frying thing, they also have a small selection of sushi and a fair selection of the usual Chinese buffet dishes.

As an aside, I can't believe someone actually opened a Mongolian BBQ in Mongolia. What's next? Panda Express in China? :)
