WWFM XI, Doylestown, Bensalem, Newtown

On Saturday, I went to "WWFM XI: Flagger Force in Warrington, PA". It was one of over 700 world-wide flash mob geocaching events happening around the world. The instructions for this flash mob said to bring a flag. I still had a New Jersey state flag from back when I got it for the Anthrocon 2009 fursuit parade, so I brought that. Anyway, at around 1pm, we gathered by the strip mall parking lot in Warrington. There were about 130 of us with a variety of flags: lots of USA flags, some state flags, some sports team flags, and a few geocaching logo flags. Then we took our flags and paraded around Chick-Fil-A. It was a fun event. For the rest of the day, I geocached around Warrington and Doylestown. I didn't see any more big clusters of geocaches on the map but I still got quite a number in one afternoon.

On Sunday, I tackled the Bensalem and Newtown area. This is a much tougher area to go geocaching in than Doylestown. It appears that many of the geocaches here were placed during the winter. Well, in the summer, what used to be open woods and meadows are now dense thickets of vegetation. SOCDAF XII, XI, and X, in particular, were the toughest in that regard. I had to wade through knee-high weeds and bramble across a meadow to get to those geocaches, although remarkably, I didn't get any ticks.
