I-95 Rest Area

Another photo of mine was published in The Consumerist. Go flag bucket! :)

The heavy hand of Rockland County struck again. Two geocaches, Point Seven Five and Treasure Island were disabled and presumably removed because the cache owner didn't want to bother applying for geocache permits for the two caches. On the one hand, Rockland County's new geocache permit requirement has a chilling effect on new and existing cache placements, so I am annoyed at the county. On the other hand, if these two caches do eventually get archived, that will open up Kennedy-Dells County Park to new caches if anyone is willing to do the paperwork. Hmm... maybe I can recreate the first geocache (which was in Kennedy-Dells) that got me started 6 years ago.

Where Rockland County has caused a problem was when GC14J5Z was unpublished because it was discovered, after the fact, to not have a permit. I went to Kakiat County Park to find it on July 24, but while I was out, the online cache listing got retracted so I can't log it online. Worse yet, I left a travel bug in the cache so that's in limbo too. Since I still have the info from my original printout, I sent an inquiry to the cache owner to find out what's going on.

Nothing much of note happened in the last day or two. However, this weekend looks like a busy one so I'll have to start preparing tonight.
