At the pedestrian bridge, I ran into sine, another geocacher. That particular cache (FOURTEEN MINUS SIX) has quite a reputation. Geocachers have been going there multiple times, spending hours trying to find the tiny cache. So I went up the stairs to the bridge and just as I got to the top step, someone called out "Geocacher?" Wonder what gave it away. :) sine had been searching there a number of times herself. This time, she had a bunch of hints from other geocachers who had found it. I focused in the area described by the hints and within a short amount of time, I saw what I needed to see and got the cache out!
The rest of the day was fairly low-key. I went to some of the suburban parks in and around Newark. One thing about Newark is they seem less uptight about parks closing at dusk. Unlike many other locations, the rules posted at bike path trailheads say nothing about park hours. Instead, there are a few words of advice on wearing reflectors at night. So the locals (and probably students from the university) may be using these paths for night bicycling.
Then, in the evening, I got dinner at Wawa and then headed home via the Turnpike and I-295.
