Sunday was reserved for finishing off the First State Challenge geocaches, so I headed south to Sussex County. Most of the FSC geocaches, although lengthy, are pretty good. The most interesting one was "FSC-2013 Woodland" because one stage of that cache is across the Nanticoke River, so I took the Woodland Ferry twice. It's a fun, short ride and to my surprise, there's no charge for the ferry. By the end of the day, I qualified for the FSC certificate because I only needed 9 caches from each county. I was still missing "FSC-2013 Newark (Iron Hill)" but I got it the next evening, just for the sake of completeness.
I took the day off on Tuesday to head out to Toms River for "500 Days of Geocaching Dinner Event". Since it was on a weekday, I ordinarily would've passed on it but I was invited by TeeDeeKay and who am I to turn it down? This trip was, of course, also a good excuse to go geocaching in Mount Laurel, Medford, and the Route 70 corridor, along the way. I left most of the Toms River geocaches for after the event, figuring I'd hang around and go home late as usual. In the evening, I arrived at Wolfie's Restaurant for the event. Even though there weren't that many "will attend" logs, I was surprised to see the back area of the restaurant packed. I had the Wolfie's Special. There was also a special cake (front, back) for the event and I got a slice of it. I didn't even realize that was a cake at first, so it's amazing what they can do with food coloring and marshmallow pieces. After dinner, we went out to do some geocaches in the area. I was glad to have Logic's help for "Batter Up! (A Snow-Proof Cache)". This cache was very high up on a lightpole and he had just the right tool to retrieve it.
