My goal on Sunday was to get to Hanover, Maryland, to use my Chevys birthday coupon for a free entree. Why all the way on the other side of Baltimore? Because after Chevys closed their Princeton-area location, this is the only one that is not too far from home for a day trip. It's actually not worth going to Hanover just for a free dinner because Maryland highway tolls alone are now up to $16 for the trip. They recently hiked the I-95 toll from $6 to $8! However, I figured since I was going there, I could find some Maryland geocaches along the way and in the vicinity of the Arundel Mills mall.
The Baltimore area has some issues. For example, there is a portion of Dundalk where I noticed that all the geocaches are missing. I replaced one of the caches myself but decided to leave the others alone because those all seemed like too-obvious spots. There are some good geocaches though. "Tool Time" was a creative use of parts from the nearby hardware store. "Panda's Treasure Box II" was an ammo box with nice artwork on the sides. In addition, I pre-solved some puzzles so I could go for "UMP Cache", "Zulu the Destroyer", "Fireants invade Maryland", and "Border Collie Trivia". Once I was done, I headed over to Chevys at Arundel Mills for a Super Cinco dinner.
After dinner, I checked the Munzee app and noticed that the Arundel Mills mall area was loaded with Munzees. So I decided to take a walk around the area to work off some of the calories and scan some Munzees. Part of the loop of Munzees was around a small complex of hotels adjacent to the mall. So I took a walk around the three hotels and scanned all 20 or so Munzees there. Hotel security saw me walking around and asked to see one of the Munzee barcodes. (because, of course, people have been placing those without telling the hotels!) So I took them over to the last one I scanned. As I showed it to security, we saw a couple engaged in intercourse in the backseat of the car parked directly in front of the Munzee! Whoa. This was mere minutes after I scanned and logged that Munzee so I wondered how I didn't notice that when I was there on my own. Boy, I must have really been focused! Anyway, I let security deal with the amorous couple and headed back to the mall area to find a few more Munzees before going home.
