PPT revisited

Sunny, 90°F. First day of the three-day weekend. It was a hot day but I decided to revisited the PPT series of geocaches on the Pennypack Trail in Holmesburg/Philadelphia to see how many more I could do. However, I started at Pennypack Park on the Delaware first to do the 5 geocaches in that park. "Pennypack on the Delaware Part 1" was a significant challenge because I had to wade through weeds that were almost as tall as I but I eventually made it to the cache site. When I read the cache logs, I noticed that others had taken the approach of climbing over a wall and walking through the abandoned industrial area outside of the park in order to avoid the tall weeds. I'm not sure that's a good thing.

After I was done with Pennypack Park, I started walking up the Pennypack Trail. Most of the PPT caches were easy and there were a few other caches, "A walk in the park", "Ssssss", "Cecil", and "Little City Overlook", along the same trail. There was also an earthcache "Fall Line at Holmesburg".

I stopped the hike early in order to make it to Old Country Buffet in Bensalem before they closed. (to use a July 4th weekend dinner coupon) Of course, there had to be two geocaches near the restaurant. Good thing I allowed a bit of extra time for those! :) Anyway, I had the usual plates and dessert.
