Maryland and Lancaster XXXXXI - The birthday coupon tours

It's that time of the year again when I get birthday coupons from nearly every restaurant mailing list to which I've signed up. So I picked the best ones of the lot and planned this weekend's trips around those.

On Saturday, I started the day with breakfast at the local IHOP. Then I went geocaching in Maryland because of the Greene Turtle coupon. This coupon was specifically for their Owings Mills location so I traveled around the north of Baltimore, through Churchville, Bel Air, Timonium, and Hunt Valley. Nothing too unusual, except for two geocaches that were quite challenging. "Don't Stonewall Me" was difficult because it was hidden on the wall of a strip mall building that didn't appear to have any good places to place a cache. But once I found it, I saw that there was indeed a way to make it stay. (one of the crevices had just enough room to sit the tiny tube) "Nano In The Heart of The Valley" on the other hand was difficult because of awkwardness. It turned out to be in the under-skirt area of a bronze statue of a little girl in the middle of a busy shopping center. Really! Luckily, no one was around when I made the grab or it would've looked strange when I picked it out from there. Finally, dinner was a crabby melt at Greene Turtle.

Sunday began with breakfast at Perkins in Avondale. The plan for the day was to do some of the recent geocaches in Southern Lancaster County and pick from a few possibilities depending on where I was at the end of the day.
Hubcap Hoarder was the neatest geocache of the day. It's made of hubcaps! It's good to see some creativity now and then. Later in the day, I was surprised by giant Greek letters in the woods near "The Old Bridge". This cache site is near Millersville University and apparently, the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity has been busy decorating some of the abandoned structures. Dinner was an avocado turkey burger at Ruby Tuesday in Lancaster. My choices were between a birthday burger at Ruby Tuesday or one at Red Robin and Red Robin was a bit further from that side of Lancaster, so I saved the latter for another evening.
