10-10-10

Sunny, 70-75°F. First thing in the morning, I went to Brewster's Pub / Laurel Lanes in Maple Shade for the 10-10-10 @ 10:10:10 geocaching event. This turned out to be pretty big event with over 160 attendees. We really packed the pub. The food was a breakfast buffet that also had pizza.

After that, we hung out for a bit and then went our separate ways, although I did run into some geocachers later in the day. With a crowd like this going after a limited number of new caches, chance meetups are inevitable. I also tried some older geocaches that I thought might be difficult. "Roar" has some rather challenging terrain. Luckily, the water level in the stream was low today because part of that walk was on the stream bed.

In the evening, I headed over to the Deptford Mall area for 10-10-10 @ 10:10:10 PM, the night event counterpart to this morning's breakfast event. I was a bit early so I did "Blanchard's Descent" and "The Clement Oak", two geocaches in the same strip mall as the event. I wasn't the only one. More geocachers arrived as I left each cache site. Finally, it was time for the 10:10:10pm event. I was surprised that this event got a respectable turnout in spite of the late hour. I think there were about 40 or 50 people attending. No restaurants in the area were open after 10pm, so we just met up in the strip mall parking lot.
