Middletown

Sunny, 50-55°F. So what does one do after a 97-geocache weekend? Why, go out and find a few more, of course! I did one in Bear and then headed down to Middletown for a few more quick ones. Of the Middletown caches, only "Timber!" was somewhat of a challenge because it was a rough bushwhack into the woods. However, I think I actually did pick the least thorny and least muddy route this time. Then "Fruit Tree" was conveniently near Hardee's, so that's when I stopped for a late lunch of chicken tenders.

On the way home, I stopped at Pathmark to check the bakery discount rack. Since I was there, I tried to find "The Quigley Backyard Cache". This cache has been a bit of a problem. I'd been saving it for when I go to Pathmark. Unfortunately, every time last month I went to Pathmark, it was dusk and that's the worst time for a detailed search. It's the time when it isn't dark enough for a flashlight to be effective, yet dark enough to make it hard to see fine details. Well, this evening, I solved that problem by going there later when it was completely dark. That worked like a charm. A few minutes with a flashlight and I spotted the cache.
