Still not getting to Hanover and the mascot gig that didn't happen

On Saturday, I still didn't quite get to Hanover, although I have to say that it's been fun not getting there and I've already found many times the number of geocaches in Hanover on the way. This time, I visited two areas. First was the White Marsh / Parkville / Towson / Hunt Valley area to pick up a few new geocaches since last week and get some others that I missed on last weekend's trip. Interesting cache sites included the one where I snuck up behind the Korean War Memorial Highway sign on Route 43 and another near a stone goose whose costume changes by the season. The weird cache in the collection was the zombie hand.

After that, I headed to northern Baltimore County to Parkton and Freeland. There were a number of creative and funny geocaches in that area too. The funniest one was the outhouse geocache. Which was occupied. Oops! :)

On Sunday, I went to Point Pleasant Beach to do a mascot gig for CFF Great Strides. Or attempted to do a mascot gig, rather. When I got there, I found that the event organizers did not have the key to the bandstand, which we were supposed to use as the changing area. No changing area meant no mascot gig because we can't just get into costume outside and we'd have nowhere to rest and cool off between sets. So we had to call it off. Oh well. Still, I had fun and danced, out of costume, to a few songs the DJ played. It's an outdoor party, after all.

There wasn't any point in staying to the end of the event so I left at around noon and went for Plan B. I hit a bunch of geocaches in Point Pleasant, Lakewood, Brick, and Toms River, focusing on the areas near Route 88. Got a decent number of geocaches before dinnertime despite fighting the Sunday shopping traffic along that corridor almost the whole time.
