Tommy's 270th Birthday, Pottstown

On Saturday, I went to Hamilton Lanes in Hamilton, NJ, for the "Happy 270th Birthday Tommy!" geocaching event. It was a small gathering in the party/bar room of the bowling alley. We had a lovely Thomas Jefferson cake and the smiley showed up too. After that, I did a bunch of geocaches around Yardville before heading over to Howell for the Route 9 series of geocaches. Of course, I did a bunch more geocaches between the series geocaches and I also ventured off into Freehold, Georgia and Wyckoff Mills.

Since I went to Wegmans so many times during Fur 'the More, I decided to get a Wegmans breakfast this Sunday morning too. Only problem: Wegmans in Collegeville is about an hour from home! I had sushi and gyoza. I actually did ask them if they were going to open a store in Delaware. The answer was no but here's the ironic twist: one of their new stores will be in Montvale, NJ. Yes, my old place but I'm not moving back there! Oh, well. Can't have everything.

After breakfast, I went geocaching in Limerick and Pottstown (Also Pottsgrove, Gilbertsville, New Hanover, Boyertown, and Stowe.) just up US-422. It was a continuation of my last trip to Royersford, just expanding a bit westward. I'm actually not terribly fond of this area, although there were a few nice locations. The treat of the day was finding "ShinBang", a cache that is more than a decade old. I love finding an old cache sometimes. It's wonderful to see something last a long time and admirable that someone maintained it all those years. It's also in a very rocky wooded area so thankfully, I didn't bang my shins. :)
