SJG Breakfast Event, South Jersey, and Central Jersey

On Saturday, I woke up and 5am and drove two hours to attend SJG's March Meet & Eat. It was a breakfast event at Old Country Buffet in Deptford. I thought I was a few minutes late but people were still gathering outside the restaurant. Then we all went in and took over one section of the dining area. It was a fine time. There were some folks I hadn't seen since breakfast a year ago, and some I hadn't seen since two years ago. I had lots of breakfast foods and ice cream too.

After breakfast, it was a nice sunny day. So Grunriese and I went out for a geocache marathon. Although he was from South Jersey, there were still many geocaches in that particular area that he hadn't done so we could both log finds on those. We hit 23 geocaches, some easy and some hard. I was glad to have his help because some of those geocaches took quite a bit of searching. After that, it got dark so we went our separate ways. On the way to dinner, I did one last geocache in the dark since it was close to a strip mall parking lot. Then I had chicken strips at Wawa in Runnemede before taking a 2-hour drive home, arriving just before midnight.

On Sunday, I went geocaching mostly in Central Jersey but with a few North Jersey caches. It was another sunny day although the clouds did roll in later in the afternoon. Many of the caches were Sue & Barry puzzle caches. I'd solved those puzzles before heading out so all I needed to do for each one was hike out to the solution coordinates. I finished the day with a bunch of easier geocaches and went to Ruby Tuesday at Garden State Plaza in Paramus for dinner. I had chicken pot pie with salad bar. Compared to the salad bar entree, the chicken pot pie with salad bar combo was only a dollar more so I figured I might as well get the chicken pot pie.
