Western NJ

Hot and humid day with temperatures up to 90°F, but cooler towards the evening. Went to Western New Jersey and found 23 geocaches there, which means I'll have to go to another region next weekend or finish up the scraps I didn't get to on this trip. It was a long, meandering tour, mostly along US-46, ending in Belvidere. (the town, not the butler :) )

Did a whole bunch of mag-man geocaches today, since he's one of the more prolific cache placers in Western NJ. At first, I had a hard time with his geocaches. Then some time in mid-afternoon, I started seeing his hiding spots as soon as I got to each location. I wasn't consciously profiling his hiding style but it's neat when right-brain processing kicks in.

The most interesting thing that happened was when I kept hearing a sound like a blow torch when I was at a cache site. I looked up and saw a hot air balloon really low and going directly over my head. I think it only just cleared the top of the tree. I thought that was a novel way to travel to cache sites but he was actually just heading to the nearby field to land the balloon.

Dinner? Well, I just returned home for that because I didn't know any good places in Western NJ open after 9pm on Saturday.
