My first destination was the "Dam Monk" geocache at the reservoir in Ringwood. I had quite a bit of an advantage because I've seen this kind of tricky hide before. Then I decided that I was cold and freezing so I went to Quiznos in Ramsey for lunch. Tried one of the new bread bowls. It's soup served in hollowed-out bread, just like the bread bowls at Panera Bread, except that at Quiznos, the bread bowl is toasted.
Then I decided I wasn't cold enough yet, so I headed over to Connecticut to bag a few easy geocaches. I was delayed significantly by a 4-vehicle (3 cars, 1 bus) accident at the Norwalk/Westport town line. This one looked quite serious indeed because they needed an ambulance. After that, things went rather quickly and on my way home, I stopped at Palisades Center (first time I was able to park at the mall since mid-December!) for dinner.
On another note, the wireless router DHCP problem seems to have gone away on its own. I think Cablevision tweaked something at their end. But since 802.11g wireless routers are much cheaper these days than when I first started looking at those, I went ahead and upgraded the home network. (Okay, so I now have two spare routers. More clutter. heh)
