DE DeLorme Challenge Final and Dover

Sunny and 90°F. Rather light itinerary today because my only real goal for the day was to seek the final cache of the Delaware DeLorme Challenge. You see, the reward for finding the 14 caches required for the challenge is another cache. :) So I did that first thing today.

Then I went to CompUSA in Dover to catch the weekly deals because this time, they sent me the store ad a few days in advance. Only got one item of the three that I took a look at. Having internet terminals all over the store is a double-edged sword for CompUSA. On one hand, it allows customers to do research to find out what technology they need and it shows that CompUSA is serious about competing with online stores. On the other hand, I used those internet terminals to read reviews on Amazon and after finding out what utter garbage the stuff is, I ended up not buying it.

After that little shopping detour, I decided I wanted to do a long hike. So I went to St. Jones Greenway Trail in southern Dover for 5 geocaches. I'm not sure how long that walk was but it was longer than I thought because the two trails do not form a loop so I had to backtrack to the trail fork and go the other way for the last of the five caches. After that, I rounded out the day with a few geocaches that are a bit more out of the way and chicken strips at Hardee's in Dover.
