Roll Over Beethoven

I got started on the Rollover IRA paperwork this morning. Handed it in at the brokerage branch office this afternoon. I don't think I'm quite done yet since the 401(k) provider will probably require another form to release the assets but I can wait.

Since I was out, I hit some geocaches in the Hockessin/Yorklyn area to the northwest. "Alas, Poor Yorik Night Cache" is at the end of a fire tack trail. The idea is to go into the woods at night and use a flashlight to light up the tacks. It's pretty well-planned. The tacks are close enough that you can see a few at a time and you're in no danger of losing the trail. Also, the final part was humorous in a gruesome way. I thought that was going to be my last cache of the day but I was actually able to do it half an hour before sunset because my flashlight was powerful enough to light up the tacks even without darkness.

So I added "The Kitchen Sink" as the last stop. This cache is the final one in a series. It uses information from 3 other caches in the series to form its coordinates. I'd found the other 3 caches a while ago so I was just saving this one for when I'm in the area. Anyway, this series of caches is about the Charcoal Pit, a local burger and ice cream chain, and "The Kitchen Sink" on this restaurant's menu is 20 scoops of ice cream loaded with toppings! I just may try that one day if I can get a few people to help finish it.
