Salisbury without steak

I checked webcams to see if areas to the north had thawed out yet but there were still vast expanses of snow all over. I figured I'd give it another week, so once again, I headed south to Delmar and Salisbury to continue the group of geocaches I started tackling last week.

On Saturday, I visited mostly the built-up and mall areas around Salisbury. Although one would expect mostly cache & dash caches in those areas, there were some good puzzles in the bunch. The "Question Mark" series had a lot of algebra. "Caching Among the Stars!" was a puzzle having to do with the first geocache on the International Space Station. I actually researched that one on the spot using WiFi because I'd neglected to prepare, but it wasn't too difficult. "It's Always the Green One" was a cache up in a tree near a mall parking lot. Luckily I had the right tool to retrieve the cache because I wasn't sure if I could climb that tree without attracting undue attention.

On Sunday, I did more geocaches in park environments like Salisbury City Park. While the urban parks are the same as anywhere else, the wooded areas had some good, albeit convoluted, trails for walking. Towards the end of the day, I hit some caches closer to the downtown area of Salisbury. I noticed that some cache descriptions caution not to visit at night for reasons of safety, so that was a bit worrisome. Also, according to cache logs, one geocacher found a gun on the ground near a cache site. Later, they determined that it was only an air pistol but with the crime rate in the area, I can see how it could have been somewhat alarming. I didn't see anything untoward myself. The biggest danger I encountered was people were riding their bicycles on sidewalks in the downtown area and I had to be careful not to get knocked over.
