Back in Jersey

I'm back in Jersey so I had to shelve the "moving out" project for a bit and attend to a few items that came up while I was away. I had a bunch of books listed in my Amazon Seller account and one of those books sold while I was away. My first Amazon sale! So I shipped it out yesterday morning. Also needed to do some banking. Then I went to Saddle River County Park in Paramus for the It's my party and I'll cache if I want to geocache. Went for it in the rain but it wasn't far from parking so that's not too bad.

This morning, I went to the bank again to check the car title in the safe deposit box. I'll need to re-title/re-register it after the move. Then I went for two geocaches in Rutherford, Kip Center and Memorial Field. This was again in the rain because we're getting hit by Tropical Storm Danny. But again, neither cache was too far from parking and the rainy weather brought the temperature down to a cool 66°F.

Filled up at the Valero gas station in Hasbrouck Heights. The pump attendant had the nerve to ask for a dollar tip for doing nothing more than pumping gas. He didn't even offer to clean the windshield or check the engine oil. This is one aspect of NJ that I'm tired of. I've gotten to the point where I'll gladly pay a little more for gas if I can pump it myself and not have to deal with anyone.
