Woodlawn Trustees

Sunny. 70-78°F. Another nice day. I decided today would be a good day for a walk in the woods and if I should encounter a bunch of geocaches along the way, so much the better. I went to the part of the Woodlawn Trustees land that straddles the PA-DE state line, so some of today's geocaches are in Pennsylvania and some in Delaware.

First, I parked at the intersection of Beaver Dam Road and Beaver Valley Road. Took a walk up the hill on one side of the road and found some geocaches. Then I took a walk up the hill on the other side of the road for a few more. There was nothing really trick about these caches other than having to go through some really dense forest growth and having to cross a cornfield in two places because I didn't see any alternative routes.

Then I took a break and went to Target to look for two things, neither of which I found. Their watch department doesn't replace watch batteries, even for watches they sell. Bah. After that, I parked at the trail access off US-202 and took a long walk in for another half dozen geocaches. I took the longer route because I didn't feel up to climbing around in dense shrubbery. The trails were mostly easy since this area doesn't have much of an elevation change.

After that, I stopped at TJ Maxx only to find that they too do not replace watch batteries even though they have a jewelry and watch department. Well, that was annoying. I decided I'd have to learn how to do it myself. So I went home and pried the watch open with a screwdriver to find out what battery it needed. Then I headed out again to buy that battery. (This tiny watch battery is $3! Sheesh.) Had Taco Tuesday since I was out and hadn't eaten all day. Back home, I popped the new battery into the watch and it worked! The problem with replacing the watch battery without proper tools is I scratched the back of the watch trying to pry it open. But it's a cheap watch so I don't mind.
