On Saturday, I went to Northeast Philadelphia to do the upper end of the "Along the Pennypack" series of geocaches in the Pennypack Wildlife Refuge area. After that, I roamed around Fox Chase, Burholme, and Cheltenham for more geocaches. Among those were a bunch of geocaches that were placed for a Burholme Park event that I missed. Driving around NE Philly is a lot more trouble than it used to be. Even on weekends now, the volume of traffic overwhelms the grid of narrow streets and most neighborhoods have parked cars on both sides of the road. It didn't help that I saw some horrible accidents (overturned cars) both when entering and leaving that area.
Sunday began with a walk in Bringhurst Woods Park for "Near Shellpot Creek" before heading to Einstein Bros for breakfast. I didn't expect to be FTF on that cache but no one else dashed out early that morning for it. After breakfast, I wanted to do the SDOG (Seventeen Days of Green, a St. Patrick's Day series) geocaches but that somehow turned into a general caching spree around Phoenixville, Spring City, and Royersford. It was a lot of fun because of some creative geocaches, like this pink crocodile, but I didn't stay until dusk because of rain. So there are still some geocaches out that way for another trip.
