Howell, Ocean City

It'd only been one week since the winter storm and piles of snow were still everywhere. However, I noticed that there was a geocache series, Tour De Howell (TDH), in the town of Howell in Monmouth County. I figured those were all urban cache hides in or near the many shopping centers along US-9. Indeed, most of those caches were findable. I only used the shovel once and skipped a few caches that were probably too deep in snow piles. (When there's limited time, one has to limit one's snow-digging to only the most likely candidates.)

Sunday's trip was to Ocean City, MD, although I got some caches in Milford and Millsboro, along the way. There wasn't any snow on the ground that far south, so it was possible to take a stab at even the most difficult caches. Indeed, I found every cache in Ocean City and also completed the "OC - Vacation Challenge" challenge cache, which really only needed 20 or so caches to qualify. Anyway, among other interesting things by the beach, there was a nice walk on a long pier and part of a VW bus.
