Farthest Delaware

Cloudy, 50-60°F. I fell asleep last evening while waiting for the laundry to finish, so I woke up pretty early in the morning. After taking care of some things I needed to do, including the laundry, I thought I'd go for a Hardee's breakfast since I'm not usually up early enough to be there in time for breakfast. So I went to the Middletown Hardee's and had a sausage and egg biscuit and a caramel crumb biscuit. The latter was the coupon freebie.

Since I was out and about early, I figured I ought to tackle the farthest geocaches in the state. (I'm saving the nearest caches for when I head out late.) So my goal for the day was "FI Sound Church Cache", near the southeast corner of the state. That ended up being the 5th cache of the day because it was a long drive and of course I had to do a few along the way. After that, I geocached in Ocean View, Bethany Beach, Dewey Beach, and Rehoboth Beach before heading off to dinner at Hardee's again, this time in Smyrna. I had a Texas toast bacon cheese thickburger.

Lots of interesting cache hiding techniques today. Of those, I think "and the forecast for St. Louis is......" and "Dewey Beach Compass" were the two most unusual ones. I'm still wondering how the cache hider for the latter set it up without attracting a lot of attention. I also did a webcam cache "Bethany Beach Webcam". (A webcam cache has no cache container to find. Instead, the objective is to position yourself within view of the webcam and save the webcam image to upload with your cache log. Most geocachers do that by calling someone else for assistance in saving the webcam image.) I noticed that there was wi-fi internet at the beach, so I brought the netbook to the boardwalk and saved the webcam image when I was in the webcam picture.
