Another 3 days in Delaware

One major disadvantage of not having internet at my new place is there is so much to catch up on when I get back to NJ.

Wednesday: Took another load of stuff down to the house. This time, I packed furniture, some books, a radio, a toaster, and more necessities. Did some geocaching along the way. I got as far as "WCW and the Mysterious Columbus Park" before realizing that I'd forgotten something rather critical so I turned back. Since I was turning back anyway, I decided to do the two new geocaches at Campgaw Mountain, Finding P' Bear 1 and 2, before getting out on the highway again. Yes, having furniture makes a lot of difference. Having to eat standing up was the worst part of my previous trip.

Thursday: Checked the DSL and it didn't work. Verizon guys in trucks (2 guys and 2 trucks! Geez.) came over to look at the hookup and concluded that I needed a new phone jack. A bit mad at them because they couldn't install that right there and then even though they spent the next hour outside idly chit-chatting. No, I had to place a new order for a different day. That is the procedure. Hrm. On the plus side, I was able to get a safe deposit box at TD Bank now that their system integration problems have cleared up. Then, since I couldn't do much more, I went geocaching. Found a bunch of Delaware Geotrail geocaches. It's a nice series of caches placed by the DE Tourism Office. All of those are pretty simple ammo box hides. Some are at museums I didn't know about and may be worth revisiting.

Friday: Time to go back to NJ again. Found some geocaches to the north of Wilmington. Then I actually went back to the house for lunch since I was still less than 3 miles away. Then I went to Northeast Philly and found many more geocaches before finally heading back into NJ.
