Did the Ginger Snapshots geocache this afternoon. It's at Cooper's Pond Park (Bergenfield), a particularly scenic location today because the trees are flowering. It's a return trip to this park because there used to be another cache here, but I think that one went away when the park folks did some landscaping.

According to GasBuddy, there is one gas station above $3 in NJ already. Feels like... oh, 2005 all over again. It's not just gas though. Even the consumables one would use when going outdoors are getting more expensive. For example, this evening, I found that Ramsey Outdoor has raised the price of Permethrin spray by a dollar, which is a 14% price hike. That's a kind of pesticide that you apply to clothing to keep ticks off. Maybe I should just stay indoors. Boy, I sure get strange ideas in the middle of the week. :)

I like reading some of the housing bubble blogs out there but my goodness, have some decorum. No reason to go trolling other blogs just because the trend is on our side.
