Labor Day Weekend, Green Lane, Reading, Southern Delaware / Salisbury

It was a 3-day weekend because of the Labor Day Holiday on Monday. I hadn't planned any vacation trips so I went for some geocaching events in the area. On Saturday, I attended "August Souvenir Celebration". It's at a cafe in East Greenville. I haven't been to that area much and I especially had not been to the nearby Green Lane Reservoir Park in years, so after the event, I went geocaching there.

On Sunday, I went to The Pagoda in Reading for the "Berks Quarterly Trackable Swap and Flash Mob" event. We had a group hike afterwards to attempt the "Peace be careful" geocache, which is up on a steep rock face. It's actually an interesting landmark because of a large Peace sign painted on the rock face. It had been raining though, so the rock face was too slippery and dangerous. We sent two people who were good at climbing to get the cache, while the rest of us waited below, possibly to catch them if they fell off. (Not sure what the plan was there. :) ) Anyway, that was the most exciting part of it. We also went for the other geocaches along the same trail.

On Labor Day, I thought it would be nice to go somewhere other than to Pennsylvania for a change. So I hit Southern Delaware and Salisbury, Maryland, for a bunch of new geocaches that had been placed since my last trip that way. The day was more driving than finding, but there were some amazing geocaches, like the elaborate birdhouse geocache outside the Courtyard Marriott in Salisbury. I also got to use the Woodland Ferry again.
