Sunny, 27-32°F. I had some calls and correspondence to take care of this morning. Then I started downloading a map update for the nüvi 295W. This download looked like it would take a few hours. What to do in the meantime? Why, leave it running and go out geocaching, of course! One of the things I wanted to do was work on the NJ DeLorme Challenge, in which you have to find at least one cache on each page of the DeLorme New Jersey Atlas & Gazetteer. That's not as easy as it sounds. For instance, I thought I got page 66 today, but that cache may be just outside of the grid by about 100 feet. Regardless, it was a nice tour of the countryside and I visited a number of scenic areas.

One nice thing about geocaching this time of the year is shallow ponds and ditches are completely frozen. There were a number of places I hiked today where I'd normally have to find a way around ditches and waterlogged areas. Not today. I just walked across the ice! I didn't even need to bother with the flimsy-looking log bridge at "Down on the Farm".
