South Jersey FPT XIX - National Park, Woodbury, West Deptford, Wenonah, Mantua, Mullica Hill

Sunny, 55-60°F. This was a quick trip to the Mantua area to do a few geocaches, like "4:64", "Blue Eyes", and "Crown-Royal" that I never got a chance to do on previous trips. Neither turned out to be as challenging as I thought, although there was some mud. One theme for the day was parks that are hard to find. For each of "Chrisco's CAA Adventure", "The Abyss", and "Hidden Gem", GPS routing brought me to the wrong road and so I had to drive around until I saw a plausible park entrance. "The Abyss" was especially hard. After driving into several wrong places, I finally found the park entrance behind the police station. The park driveway is a small road with no sign. It's probably a local secret.

The last cache of the day, "The Peach Blossom Special", was a 4-stage multicache covering maybe 10 miles of distance, but it didn't take too long because I could drive right up to each stage. It's an interesting tour of some of the orchards in rural Gloucester County, a region that I had no idea was a big peach producer. Final stop of the day was Long John Silver's in Mantua, of course. I had a fish & chicken variety platter. They actually got the order wrong because the coupon was actually for Fish & More and I got the variety platter instead, but I like this one better.
