Two Approaches to Reading

Over the weekend, I did more geocaching to the south of Reading, approaching from the southeast (via Morgantown) on Saturday and from the southwest (via Adamstown) on Sunday. Saturday was a rainy day, so I thought it was appropriate to start the day by finding "I Love a Rainy Night". (day, night... close enough!) There were some quick geocaches on the approach from Morgantown to Wyomissing that I could do in the rain but I still had to stop for some time in the late afternoon anyway because of lightning.

Sunday's weather was a lot better. I started at the Pennsylvania Turnpike / 222 interchange in Denver and went northeast from there, meandering through the countryside of Adamstown, Reinholds, Montello, and Spring. With lots of farms and rolling hills, this area looks similar to Lancaster, except with the curious absence of Amish buggies. "Just a GRM!" was the most challenging cache of the day. It looked like an exercise on the part of the cache owner in how much a part of the guard rail one can make a cache appear to be. I found it only because I happened to touch it and noticed a very slight difference.
