Labor Day Weekend and the end of the 31-day challenge (Lancaster LVI, Montgomery County, SJ)

It was a 3-day weekend but I had only one event to attend, which was "Kayaks and Land Lovers", a flash mob event at the Rock Hill parking area in Marticsville, Lancaster County, on Saturday. That was a nice event of moderate size. I didn't have much planned for afterwards, so I geocached generally around Lancaster. It rained in the afternoon, so I took the opportunity to do "LOST81 (2.5/1.5) Is This A City?" This is a mystery cache that requires a tour around the Park City Center mall to gather information to calculate the final coordinates. So the rain wasn't a problem for that part of it at least.

On Sunday, I did a run to the Telford - Harleysville - Montgomeryville - North Wales area, which seems to repopulate with new geocaches fairly regularly. "The silver bullet" was the most entertaining cache of the day, once I found it and understood what I had to do to retrieve it. No tools or modifications to the cache site; just a creative way to use the structure that was already there. I also visited the most duck-filled pond in Harleysville.

Dinner was a repeat visit to the worst Baja Fresh (Montgomeryville location) I've come across so far. I know I shouldn't return after what I saw on my previous visit but I thought maybe this time, they won't be horrible. On my last visit, I noticed that they were using the toilet plunger from the restroom to fix the salsa bar. On this visit, I saw the staff use the same floor broom, after sweeping the floor, to dust the seats in the dining area. If they do things like that in the dining area in full view of customers, I have to wonder what dubious shortcuts they're taking back in the kitchen. However, I didn't get sick after either visit so I'll keep the complaining to a minimum for now.

On Monday, I went to Willingboro to do even more "Levittown Legacy" geocaches. I'm not sure if this series has really ended since new ones keep showing up. After that, I continued onwards to Beverly, Florence, Bordentown, and Hamilton. I also finally got to log the "31 Day Streak" challenge cache. I didn't have finds on every day in August but the only one I missed was on the 2nd so by Sept 2, I did indeed have a 31-day streak. Funny thing is I didn't intend to do a streak and I didn't save any just-in-case streak-saver caches near home, but new ones popped up almost every day just the same. There were a few close calls though. There was one time when a tree fell at the entrance to a cache site but I was still able to approach by taking a longer walk from another direction. And there was another time when there was a flaming (or at least smoldering) wreck on I-295, which fortunately did not close all the lanes. I have to admit it was nice having some caches to go for every evening after work, although I think I'd get eventually get tired of doing that every day.
