Lower Gwynedd, Millsboro TAD

On Saturday, I thought I'd go to Montgomery/Bucks County again since I had no problems last weekend, despite the snow. Well, the difficulty increased over the past week, apparently. The snow had partially melted and refrozen, so it's now hard. I had to be a lot better at guessing where the geocache was under the ice because trying to dig through too much of that would tire me out quickly. Even so, I had some success. Sometimes it was pure luck but sometimes I had just enough insight into the cache owner's habits to be able to scan the area and figure out the exact spot. Anyway, this time, I hiked the Green Ribbon Trail in Ambler and Lower Gwynedd. I thought the stream crossing was tricky because the ice-cold water was running over the crossing stones but I've heard that the water level can be a lot higher at times.

On Sunday, since I was tired of the snow, I decided to go to Southern Delaware to do a cache series that was placed near Milford for the mid-January event, which I missed. There was also a new extension of the TAD (Trails Across Delmarva) powertrail near Millsboro. The TAD series is marked in such a way that you can do all westbound caches first, then turn the car around and do all eastbound caches. This time though, since there was very little traffic, I decided to just drive one way and cross the road when necessary. This way, I could go home up the other side of Sussex County after finishing TAD and grab a few more caches along the way. I was amused that when I was at TAD #254, pigs came over from the other side of the mud field to see what I was doing.
