It was a 100% Munzee (well, maybe 99% Munzee and 1% Flagstack) weekend. My geocaching premium membership expired last weekend and I didn't figure it was worth renewing, so I don't have any pocket queries. I peeked at the c:geo app a couple of times but there weren't any new geocaches near where I was capturing munzees. Which seems to fit what I've been noticing. In areas that are dense with munzees, some of the biggest players were geocachers who hid a lot of geocaches a while back but stopped and switched to Munzee. Why? They had their reasons. Montgomery and Bucks County geocachers had better hope the Taxman, owner of over a thousand geocaches, doesn't start Munzeeing!
So Saturday's trip was to South Jersey again, mainly Westampton, Burlington, Riverside, Cherry Hill, Audubon, and Marlton. Since the weather was good, I started clearing out a few areas. Also helped a local Munzer replace a missing motel munzee. Not a complicated process but it did require some messaging back and forth. Then I went around getting the new timeshare
, hotel, and motel munzees and a bunch of mythologicals. Lots of points all around. In the evening, I hit the Asian food market in Cherry Hill and finally, I picked a random Chinese restaurant I hadn't been to for dinner
. That's the other thing I've been doing: attempting to write Yelp and Google Local reviews for every Chinese place in South Jersey. I'm probably only a small fraction of the way to this goal.
Sunday's trip was down to Sandy Point State Park
again to capture around 300 munzees. Nearly all of them were evolution munzees
, a special type that changes twice before taking its final form. A wheel munzee, for example, turns into a penny farthing next month and a muscle car the following month. So it may seem like there are a lot of munzees in Sandy Point but some of those were the same ones from my last visit that have since evolved. Along the way there, I also visited the Fallen Heroes Memorial
in Centreville. This memorial and park is not along the main drag, so I'd never have found it if not for Munzee. (Just like geocaches, it seems, some Munzees take you to new places and some, well most, are just for the heck of it.)
