Tackamack Park

This evening, I went to Tackamack Park in Orangeburg for the Tackamac geocache. It's on the same Long Path as "Follow the Turquoise Trail", which I visited yesterday, except that it's in the opposite direction from the parking area. The Tackamac geocache is an insane 7 stages so naturally, I put it off for quite a while. However, on rereading the cache page and online logs, I discovered that the first three stages are optional. The 4th stage is where the Long Path intersects a road and it took only a moment of map reading to figure out where that is.

So I parked at Stage 4 and went up the Long Path from there. I think the entire walk for stages 5, 6, and 7 was less than a mile round trip and the terrain was very easy. It's a walk through pine woods.

After that, I didn't feel like going to Palisades Center for the second evening in a row, so I came back to Park Ridge for dinner and shopping. At CVS, I noticed that store brand mouthwash was on sale and I had a $4-off-$20 coupon so I bagged 8 1-liter bottles, which should last a few months. I'm only an occasional player of the CVS coupon game.
