09-09-09 geocaching event

Cloudy and somewhere around 72°F. I went geocaching in Central Jersey this afternoon. Six of those geocaches were placed for an event last weekend that I didn't attend. So it was an easy time just going from location to location in the South Plainfield area. Then I hit another group of geocaches in Liberty Corner and Basking Ridge.

The real point of this excursion was this evening's geocaching event. I attended NNJC 09-09-09 @ 09:09:09 PM. It was at Applegate Farm, an ice cream parlor, in East Hanover. This is a odd location for an ice cream place. Most of the stores in East Hanover are on Route 10 so it is a bit out of the way. Stranger still was the collection of tombstones next to the parking area behind the store. At least the front of the store looked pretty normal. We had the event on the balcony. Not too many attendees but this gathering was the perfect size for the location. I had a coupon from the Applegate Farm website. It turned out to be expired but they took it anyway. So I had a waffle cone with scoops of pistachio, chocolate peanut butter, and coffee.

Got home and saw that the back door glass was shattered. Not my responsibility but nevertheless, I'll be glad when I leave this place.
