Valentine's Day event, TAD series, Montgomery/Bucks
Saturday was a rainy day with a bit of snow mixed in, but I went down to southern Delaware anyway for the "Who's your Valentine?" geocaching event at Stargate Diner in Seaford. They had breakfast buffet, which I got since it was the simplest option. I won a heart-shaped geocoin in the event raffle, which was a surprise since there were a lot more attendees than prizes. After that, we went out to do geocaches in the area. I did a few easy ones to warm up before hitting the Trails Across Delmarva (TAD) series near Laurel. It wasn't really a trail because all those geocaches are along the side of Route 24, but those were good for a rainy day. Some were on the other side, so my plan was to do all the ones on the outbound side and hit the rest on the way back. It didn't quite work out that way because there was a difficult one that I needed to think about and ended up crossing the road for later on. Thank goodness there wasn't too much traffic.
At the end of the day, I ran into GreatOdyssey, Corpseplow, and Mistyteal, so we did a bunch of geocaches in downtown Laurel as a group. I thought it was funny that I went all the way to southern Delaware just to team up with folks who are local to me but it was a great time!
Sunday was sunny but windy and cold. I figured winter was the best time to do geocaches in thorny locations, so I headed up to Horsham and Warrington to finish those off. There were a good many geocache sites that I'd skipped last summer because of thick vegetation but in the winter, none of them posed a significant problem.
