The first two geocaches were in parks at both ends of the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge. I did the Bronx end first followed by the Queens end. Then I headed over to Muttontown Preserve in East Norwich for the last 6 caches. Those caches themselves were easy. The difficult part was finding my way around Muttontown Preserve. The trails wind around in odd ways and, more than once, a long black fence got in the way of a direct approach. Even so, I was done by sunset.
Still had a bit of money in the FSA, so I went to CVS in the Hicksville area to refresh my medicine cabinet. There, I noticed that Christmas candy was on sale at 75% off. Then I had fried fish at LJS in Hicksville. I had fried fish on January 1, so it was fitting to end the year the same way.
Total for the year: 1450 geocache finds. (235 in December) 27 geocaching events attended.
And now, I have to pack for tomorrow.
