On Saturday, I went to Queens. (with one side trip to Nassau County for a geocache not far from the county line) It was a rainy day but not that bad until the evening when I actually started feeling the rain. This being a Saturday, there were problems with parking at a few locations, but that's why people double park with emergency blinkers on. When in NYC... Anyway, it was a good trip and I almost finished all the geocaches in Queens. Ended the evening with dinner at Sentosa in Flushing. Parking wasn't free but it was late enough by that time that I didn't have to put in many quarters to get to 10pm, after which parking was free anyway.
On Sunday, freakylynx and I went to Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY, to do a mascot gig for Walk MS. We were the only two characters for this gig. We actually didn't expect too much from this gig. For one thing, it wasn't a long gig -- the event usually starts at 10am and dies down at around noon. For another, it was a rainy morning and we didn't think too many people would show up. Glad to be proven wrong! It was a good gig. It was cloudy but the rain didn't materialize. Great crowd. After that, we took a walk around to see the CIA campus and went our separate ways.
Then the sun came out. I went geocaching along the Hudson River in the Poughkeepsie area. Crossed over to Highland, New Paltz, Walden, Montgomery, etc. Wanted to hit cache #7777 but that turned out to be a very easy goal for the day because I got that and one extra. Dinner was at Arby's in Middletown and I picked up another two geocaches on my way home. (Warwick is not quite on the way home but it's only a bit of a detour on country roads)
