Orange County

Sunny. 34-39°F, although it felt somewhat colder than that towards the evening. I had a choice between Central Jersey and Orange County, two areas with lots of new geocaches. I picked the latter because I hadn't been there in two months. I made the right choice although I didn't know that until I came home and saw that some drama had erupted over Kevtel's geocaches in Central Jersey.

Anyway, I had a comparatively easy time with today's set of geocaches. There were two caches just outside of Monroe that I decided to pass on because emergency personnel were busy attending to some hay bales that had caught fire. There were also two caches ("quick beam" and "The Troll of Chester Blvd") that I had to return to later in the day because people were too close to the cache sites. Aside from those issues, it was smooth sailing the whole day.

After the 14th cache of the day, I was in Middletown, so it was the perfect time to stop for dinner and shopping. The Salvation Army store was a bit of a disappointment this time. They had gotten rid of all their books and most of their toys. It's now almost entirely devoted to clothing. (and mostly women's clothing) So I didn't get anything. Dinner was at Arby's. I had a coupon for a free roastburger with drink purchase from the Arby's mailing list. The cashier told me that they weren't accepting that coupon but instead, they were giving $2 off the roastburger combo. That wasn't a bad deal so I took it. I had a Bacon Bleu Roastburger.
