Hackensack Whack

Hackensack River

This evening, I visited the Sack N Hack geocache at Johnson Park in Hackensack. I think the hardest part about this cache was turning around on River St. so that I could get into the park. The parking area was accessible only from the Northbound lanes. So I ended up turning onto a car wash lot and driving around the car wash to get back on the road in the correct direction. After all that, actually walking to and finding the cache was a piece of cake.

After that, I visited the KV0495 and KV0497 benchmarks. Both of those survey disks were on the Anderson St. bridge over the Hackensack River. The only tricky part here was that KV0497 was in the traffic island in the middle of the busy road. But I had plenty of time to wait until there was no traffic on the road so that I could cross safely.

Then I went to King Fung Food Market in River Edge to get some takeout for dinner and also to get some Asian pears. I also got some rice crackers that were on sale. Now, I'm aware of the Chinese poison train, so I checked the country of origin. Luckily, those are from Taiwan, not China.
