The goal for today was to find the puzzle caches whose puzzles I solved during the week. That went pretty well, except for "Pick Your Poison" which was in a state of disarray because it had been ransacked by a miscreant. It's a pity that there are people who go around destroying things just because they can.

The other annoying thing was when I wanted to read the informational sign at "Locktenders Backyard" and found that it had been defaced. You want to know how beautiful towns with glorious histories become pits? Senseless destruction. Trashing geocaches. Defacing public property. Both are symptoms of the same lousy social conditioning. And these people will eventually start whining about having to live in a hellhole.

I must be getting soft. Temperatures were around 30°F but it felt a lot colder than it should. Found another Wawa store in Hamilton only because I missed a turn. If I didn't know better, I'd say they placed those stores to take advantage of my navigation errors.

Dinner and shopping along US-1 in the evening. Apples were 69 cents/lb at the Chinese supermarket. Such a bargain. Only problem was most of the apples in the pile were bruised. I went through the whole pile and found 15 good apples, which is a decent haul for this trip.
