Tuesday Tartar Trickery

Bunch of cherries

Went to find the NJT Plauderville Cache (NJT#1) in Saddle Brook this afternoon. It's a two-stage cache near and at the NJ Transit station. The first part required a calculation involving pi, a square root, and some information from the area. I didn't bring a calculator, but I had my notebook computer with me and really, there had to be at least a dozen pieces of software on it that could do the calculation. I simply typed in a line of Perl code on the command line to get the answer.

Then I proceeded to the second stage and arrived right at the moment when vanm was plucking the cache from its hiding spot! Hah! Caught red-handed! Good to see a fellow geocacher at the cache site, although if I'd known we'd get there at the same time, I'd not have bothered with the calculation. :)

After that, I went to Popeye's to use the first coupon from a sheet of 8 coupons. This coupon was for the popcorn shrimp combo at a discount of about $1.80. The annoying thing was when I asked for tartar sauce, the lady preparing the order gave me cocktail sauce. Then when I pointed out that it was the wrong sauce, she insisted that it was actually tartar sauce and gave me a second tub of cocktail sauce. Huh??
