Powertrail Weekend, Southern Delaware, Colliers Mills

Since the weather was good and there was a proliferation of powertrails within two hours from home, I decided to see if I could do big cache runs both days of the weekend. I didn't think I could do it but I squeezed in 3 powertrails: Ted Harvey (14 caches) in Dover DE, TAD (49 caches) in Georgetown DE, and CMTPT (60 caches) in Jackson NJ. Of course, I did other geocaches on the way to/from and around those areas for a total of 151 caches this weekend. I went from morning to night both days, hopped in and out of the car a gazillion times, exhausted my phone battery logging geocaches in the field, and visited Hardee's a lot. Definitely a full weekend!

Saturday began with a few geocaches on the way to Dover and then the Ted Harvey series. This is a continuation to the previous Ted Harvey set in the Ted Harvey Wildlife Area. This time, I did numbers 17 to 30. Then I continued southwards to the Georgetown area for TAD #31 thru #78. The neat part is these geocaches are arranged in a large X, forming a piece of geo-art when viewed on a map. As you can see by the question marks in the picture, they are all puzzle caches. I wrote software to solve these and speed things along because working on 48 of those by hand would've been too much! "A TAD Off-Center", in the center of the X, is a different puzzle but I have software for this too.

On Sunday, I went to Colliers Mills Wildlife Area in Jackson for the CMTPT series. All these geocaches are hidden along the main sand road in that area. There were some rough spots but most of that sand road is hard-packed. All 60 caches are the exact same style of hide. Even so, some were much harder to find than others because of the way those were placed, the surrounding vegetation, and my fatigue levels throughout the day. But I stuck with it, found each one in sequence, and finally emerged at the other end of the sand road. After the CMTPT series, I headed over to Patriots Park for a few more geocaches and ran into a family who just started geocaching that day. They were stumped on the "Inspiration 5" cache but I looked around a bit and saw it. Then I told them about Colliers Mills and they wanted to try that too. They have no idea what they are in for! :)
