Saturday began with a collection of geocaches in the Caravel Farms area in Bear. Then I headed over to Rosedale, near Baltimore. I wanted to do the cache trail in Double Rock Park but I only got the first two caches before a thunderstorm cut my hike short. So for the rest of the day, I went for caches around shopping centers and office parks in Parkville, Towson, and Essex, between bursts of rain. What's odd about this trip is two caches I had trouble with in the past, "Evil Little Evergreen Hide" and "Suds on a Pedestal", were easy to find. Looking back through the logs, I believe the latter was missing and had been replaced. The former could have been dislodged and is now temporarily in an easier spot.

Sunday's trip was to Lehigh Valley again for another 45 caches. There is method to the madness though. Each park or cemetery, or in some cases the entire town, had caches named for characters from one TV show. So the ones I found that day were from Three's Company, All In The Family, Thundercats, Josie and the Pussycats, Seinfeld, Tom and Jerry, and My Favorite Martian. And the towns I visited were Bath, East Allen, Nazareth, and Tatamy. The Iron Workers Lunch Time sculpture was an interesting find. It's not related to any geocache yet. I saw it while driving to a geocache and I just had to stop and photograph it. Another great location was the Indian Tower. I used the spiral stairs to get to the second level and take some pictures of the scenery.

As long as it didn't snow, I could go to Central Jersey, and see more weird caches and hit the Chinese supermarket. So Saturday's trip was to Plainsboro, South Brunswick, Kendall Park, Franklin Township, Highland Park, and Edison. It was mostly a geocaching tour of suburban areas and small parks.

On Sunday, I remained relatively close to home to finish up some caches in Bear, Chesapeake City, Newark, Wilmington, and West Chester. There was a surreal cache in Iron Hill with plastic fruit. And there was another that's a stone heart. Some local history was featured too.

Saturday morning's weather was ice pellets followed by rain. It's the kind of weather that didn't encourage traveling out too far, so I stayed local and geocached around Middletown, Odessa, and Wilmington. The last cache, "Not Your Typical History Lesson", was a 17-stage multi in a cemetery near downtown Wilmington. It was the perfect day to get that done since I had the whole afternoon for it and walking around a cemetery with an umbrella is no problem. The only issue was I had to brush some ice off of some of the tombs to get the information, but once I had the numbers from the first 16 stages, the final stage was an easy find.

On Sunday, I took a trip out farther to Southern Delaware to get some caches in an area I didn't get a chance to check out on my last few trips there. I got a few caches in Georgetown, more in Long Neck, and a half dozen in Bethany Beach and Fenwick Island to end the day.

After finishing off a few new geocaches in Pike Creek and Hockessin on Saturday, I went to Kennett Square, Marlborough, Unionville, Downingtown, and West Brandywine, generally heading northwards through Chester County. I hadn't been up that way in a while and so I took the opportunity to finally get some of those caches that were placed for an event months ago that I didn't attend. I also finally finished a few Wherigo caches. "Poker Run #2 2016" was one that I only noticed that day, but I downloaded the Wherigo cartridge using mobile data and it was a quick solve. (Only one question about poker hands!) "MEET EAT & GREET" was a far more difficult Wherigo but I'd already solved it 6 months ago and still had the coordinates and notes I needed to find the cache. Although the area is hilly, there were a number of scenic ponds and lakes, such as Broad Run Pond and Chambers Lake.

The real purpose of Sunday's trip was to get "Halfway! (to Delaware's Longest Geocache)" in Central Delaware. It's a long walk on an old road out into a marsh. I found Delaware's Longest Geocache a few years ago and that was 2.6 miles from parking, so halfway would be roughly 1.3 miles. There were two other caches along the way but for the most part, it was a long walk in a quiet area with a bit of variation in scenery. Aside from that, I also found clusters of geocaches in Glasgow, Milford, and Seaford. The caches down by Seaford were somewhat amusing. There was a wolf geocache, a rat cache, a pumpkin cache, and a cache on a giant chair.

Saturday was another day to get some geocaches in my area, to the northwest and northeast of home. Went from Newark to Pike Creek, London Britain, Kemblesville, Kennett Square, Concordville, Springfield, Newtown Square, and Lansdowne. Attempted some of the tougher geocaches as well, which meant tackling the overgrowth on some of the less-used trails in DelCo wooded areas. The funny cache of the day was "Class of 3:16", which came with its own action figure.

Sunday's geocaching trip started in Penns Grove and Logan Township, before venturing north to Trenton, Ewing, and Pennington. However, any area that even suggested picnic or swim hole was packed with people and parking areas were jam packed. Moreover, traffic was crazy on the New Jersey side. So, after getting a few geocaches, I decided to head over the river for the relative calm of Bucks County, PA. There were a lot of new geocaches, mostly from Taxman, in Newtown and Bensalem. Also, I was finally able to find some caches with which I had trouble in the past. "Cry Baby #5 * 8 - Newborn" was one such problematic cache. I'd been there before but encountered a vagrant hiding behind the fence, which really discouraged me from returning for a while! Finally found the cache this time and it turned out to not be that difficult, except for having to deal with the overgrowth in that unused slice of land next to the Wawa parking lot.

Couple of interesting geocaches on Sunday. The first was the cow-spotted box, which was furry on the inside! "Shadowy Span" was near an unusual sculpture of an armored horse. What the camera didn't capture very well was a golden heart behind the bars in the center of the horse's body. So that's some neat symbolism. And the last cache before dinner was a gnome, which ties in to the puzzle in "Where's Dog VII - Follow Your Gnome".

On Saturday, I intended to stay local and get all the recently-published local geocaches, but somehow ended up going to Chestertown after a bunch of geocaches in Middletown and Millington. The one curious thing in the area was the Unicorn Fishing Lake, which, depending on the way you parse the sign, could be a lake where unicorns fish or a lake where one fishes for unicorns. The last stop of the day was back to Carousel Farm Park in Pike Creek for a set of toe geocaches, before I made my escape!

Sunday's trip was to Allentown for the "Celebrate Geocaching in the Lehigh Parkway!" geocaching event. It was a morning event though, so I was there only for the last five minutes before it ended abruptly. In that same area was another event celebrating the 175th anniversary of the covered bridge, so the geocaching event had to end before the next event began. I didn't stick around for the main festivities, so the rest of the day was spent getting the new geocaches in Coplay, Northampton, Laurys Station, and Walnutport, and walking on some of the bike paths in the area.

On Saturday, I remained local to round up some of the geocaches that had been placed in my area recently. First came a few caches in Bear since those were closest to breakfast. Then I got more caches in Delaware City and Newark. Most unusual place was a spot under Route 9, although I'd been there before for another cache. Where I hadn't been before was to the side of this dam on the White Clay Creek. I think that was in Coverdale Park and only accessible via a 0.1-mile walk on a towpath.

Sunday's trip was to the Quakertown area, including Pennsburg, East Greenville, Richland, California, and Perkasie afterwards, since I hadn't been there in long enough. Most interesting spot was the South Perkasie Covered Bridge, which had been relocated from the road to a park for historical preservation. Which is why it isn't over a river any more.

Saturday's trip was to Winslow and Hammonton, reasoning that any area around my latitude would be snow-free. That was correct, more or less, but thankfully caches in areas that still happened to have snow on the ground weren't affected by snow.

Stayed close to home on Sunday to finish off geocaches that the locals have placed recently. There were some creative ones, such as the claw machine. (It wasn't tricky though. The cache container fell out when I tilted the claw machine.) Also, the Star Trek puzzle cache series was entertaining and featured such characters as Worf and Geordi LaForge.

Pope Francis visited Philadelphia this weekend. Since a large number of roads, including some major highways, in the city were closed for the occasion, most people thought traffic would be backed up everywhere. I didn't think that would be the case but it seemed prudent anyway to not travel anywhere in that direction. Plus, this year's edition of the First State Challenge was released on Saturday. So it was a good time to tour Delaware.

The FSC is partly a showcase of important sites in Delaware. So there were some interesting things to view, such as the Kalmar Nyckel mural, the Old West town in Carousel Park, and the giant Amish man. This time though, I decided not to rush and get all the FSC caches in one weekend. So on Saturday, I focused on the beach side of southern Delaware and hit other non-FSC caches in Milton, Lewes, and Rehoboth Beach along the way.

Sunday's outing was to finish the northern section of FSC in Bear, Newark and Wilmington. To fill out the day, I made a sidetrip into South Jersey for the newest caches in Pennsville, Mullica Hill and Mantua. The Salem River area was rather scenic as well.

Friday was my birthday so I took the day off and made it a 3-day weekend. I had lots of birthday coupons from restaurant mailing lists, so I picked the geocaching destinations accordingly, of course. Friday morning began with the free birthday Grand Slam at Denny's. Then it was a short trip around to Chester and Springfield, then Kennett Square, then Newark for geocaches. "A nice view" in Kennett Square was a neat location because it was next to an emu. This curious bird walks right up to the fence and makes little grunting noises when it sees any activity at all.

Saturday's trip was to Codorus State Park and Southwest York County, with a few stops in Maryland along the way. There were lots of creative and funny geocaches by Calamity Jane, including an outhouse teddy bear, one where Pooh got stuck, and a soccer bear. I actually got to meet Calamity Jane herself because she was in the area checking up on her caches. I was going for that Pooh cache and she drove in to the same parking lot in her bright red convertible classic car. What a character! She's a very nice lady and it was good to finally see who had been placing all those creative geocaches, both at the state park and near Prettyboy Reservoir.

Sunday's trip was to Northeast Philadelphia and Bensalem. I used to visit this area a lot but not so much recently because traffic delays are more common nowadays and the neverending I-95 construction does not help. It's also more trashy now than I remember because the city doesn't seem to clean up litter and new litter keeps piling up on existing litter. Anyway, the most bizarre geocache I found on Sunday was a raccoon plush toy. Because of all the litter I saw that day, I thought this too was trash at first because it was in a plastic bag next to a rock. It's very unusual but I don't think it's a good idea to keep a plush toy outside because it'll get soaked, dirty, and stinky after a while.

Saturday was a busy day. It was Pi Day (3/14/15), so there were lots of geocaching events taking place. I picked three that didn't conflict and were all within 30 miles from home. So at breakfast time, I went to "A Breakfast Pi? S.T.R.A.N.G.E.!" at Wegman's in Downingtown. Then at lunchtime, I went to "Almost St. Patty's Day" at Charcoal Pit in Wilmington. Then at dinnertime, I went to "2015 NJ PI Event 3.1415" at East Garden Buffet in Sicklerville. Of course, there were other geocaches and some event bonus caches along the way. So all in all, it was quite a day. The funniest part was a group of geocachers from Chester County picked the same events that I did. So I kept seeing them every couple of hours!

Sunday was a comparatively laid-back trip to Lancaster County. I hit Lancaster and then worked my way north/northeast to Lititz, West Earl, Ephrata, Reamstown, and Denver. I love the humorous and creative caches that folks in this area place. "Spiders and Rats and Zombies, Oh My!" actually had a spider, a rat, and a zombie hand. Then, there was the toilet geocache. The story is that's the site of a hotel that was torn down but they left toilets all over the place. Later in the afternoon, I went for the "Sticky Situation" series in Ephrata, which had a bunch of neat fake food props. Among those were a spilled ice cream geocache and a donut geocache. I love these because it's obvious they're having fun with humorous and themed geocaches.

Saturday was a toolcaching day. I checked the list of geocaches in the Elmer/Vineland area and noticed that at least a few caches required some non-standard tools. So I put together what I needed ahead of time and brought the tool bucket with me. "Poor Papa's Parched" and "I Own a Puzzle" were similar. Both of them were tubes / pipes that you fill with water to float the cache to the top. I brought a big bucket and a small bucket. I used the big bucket to fetch water from the river and the small bucket for scooping. A funnel helped too, although it wasn't strictly necessary. I also used duct tape to close the drain hole at the bottom of the pipe before filling it. "No Idle Zone" wasn't really a tool cache, but I saw from the previous cache log that the cache was frozen in place. There, I used a hammer and chisel to wedge it out from the ice enough to open the lid.

The rest of the day was pretty much a lot of hiking around pine barren areas to try to get more geocaches before those come under NJ State Parks Geocaching Policy review. The impression I'm getting now though is they may not require all existing caches to be archived in April, but who really knows? There was a bit of light snow during the day, but a fast-moving storm in the evening dumped 3 inches of snow in about half an hour, so that made the trip home somewhat slower.

Sunday was very cold: 8°F in the morning, warming up to about 13°F in the afternoon. Because of that and very strong winds throughout the day, I decided not to travel out too far and just go for some nearby geocaches. Most of those caches were quick. The only walk of significant length was a 1-mile round trip on the snowy trails in Middle Run for a mortar tube cache. Yes, it was cold but I didn't notice it as much once I got moving. There was also a brief stop at the University of Delaware campus.

On Saturday, I went geocaching a bit farther down Eastern Shore Maryland than last weekend's trip. There was rain in the weather forecast for Sunday, so I figured I should take the opportunity to travel while the weather was good. This time, after picking up a few puzzle/mystery caches in Church Hill, I continued to Easton and St Michaels, both new areas for me. One of the problems around the Chesapeake Bay is there are numerous fingers of land, each up to 10 miles long and typically with multiple branches. Once you've gone geocaching down one of those fingers, that's pretty much it for the day because it takes a lot of time and driving to return to the main highway and go down another finger. So after hitting Easton, there was really only enough time for the St Michaels finger and Bozman, which was on one of the land branches. There was quite a bit to see down that way, however. First, there's the MEBA Merchant Marine Memorial, which is laid out like a giant ship with a big propeller at one end. Then, there's the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum, which was closed at the time unfortunately, although I still got to see the Tilghman Island Drawbridge exhibit.

It rained almost the whole day on Sunday. Although temperatures were higher by the time I left home, I heard that roads in Pennsylvania were still messed up with numerous accidents from icy conditions early that morning. So I decided to stay closer to home and pick up a few geocaches in New Castle County and Cecil County. The most unusual one of the day was "Brace Yourself", which was a snake! Fake, of course. At 3.5 stars, the most difficult one of the day was "Veterans Community Park". I think I was lucky to find it without help because it looked like trash and it wasn't in a spot that I'd have thought to check. The only thing that worked in my favor was it was exactly what I guessed it would be after reading the cache logs.

On Saturday, I only went for geocaches around Newark, Hockessin, and Cecil County because I was planning to attend DE Furbowl 55 that evening. Actually, there were quite a number of local geocaches by this time because I hadn't been going geocaching on weekdays after work because of the earlier sunsets. I also noticed that some new geocachers have been busy placing caches around North East and Rising Sun, which is good because it keeps the Cecil County area fresh.

In the evening, I had an early dinner and then went to AMF Prices Corner for Furbowl. The place was busy! It'd been 11 months since my last Furbowl and my understanding is attendance is regularly in the triple digits now. I wore the Rakket Raccoon fursuit this time. It was a fun time, although I didn't stay all the way to the end because I had to prepare for the next day.

On Sunday, my first destination was Uwchlan to get more of the "13 Superstitions" series. It was a bummer though that the final 13th cache was under repair, but at least I got the required codes from the first 12 of those. There were some rather creative caches in this series, among them, the black cat and the clump of clover. Thank goodness the latter wasn't too deep in the bush or it may have been tough to find! After that, I went farther north to Nantmeal and Douglassville. Monocacy Hill was surprisingly packed. I wasn't able to get a proper parking space in the main area so I only got the two closest geocaches that I could access from roadside parking near a side entrance. And finally, I went way north to Bally for the "Stove Road" series of caches. The "road" here is an old woods road that's rocky, somewhat overgrown, and barely discernible in some spots, but the 4 caches were pretty good and worth negotiating the terrain to get to.

The weather system dumped quite a bit of snow on the area Thursday night and temperatures never got above freezing on Friday. So there was still a lot of snow (and snow/ice-covered roads) on Saturday. I decided it wasn't a great day to travel out very far and tried my hand at finding geocaches in the snow within New Castle County. Some, like the banana and the idol, were still pretty easy to find despite the snow. The banana was, by sheer luck, in the only spot in the woods that was sheltered from the snow. "A Hard Cache for You", on the other hand, lived up to its name. It's a micro cache on the ground, so to find it, I pretty much had to shovel snow all around the cache site until finally, I got it out. Anyway, despite the tough geocaching and slick roads, it was a good day to go out and the snow made for a change in scenery.

On Sunday, I went to the Chester/Delaware County border area, specifically Tredyffrin, Berwyn, Radnor, and St. Davids. This area actually seemed a bit more dangerous because there were some winding and hilly country roads that were made even more icy by the freezing rain overnight. With a little care though, my car didn't skid. I tried to pick geocaches that I thought would be easy in the snow. However, "Willow Lake TB Hotel" at Eastern University turned out to be surprisingly difficult because that area by the lake had a smooth layer of snow and the cache was not where I thought it would be from the description and logs. (GPS readings were a bit flaky in that area too, which didn't help matters.) My only recourse was to shovel snow speculatively in a number of places until I got it. The best part of the day was a walk on the snowy Radnor Trail for 3 geocaches. With no one else using the bike path, it was very quiet.

Friday evening was a bit of a bummer because I noticed a slow leak in the passenger-side rear tire due to an embedded screw. So on Saturday morning, instead of going to a geocaching event in Dublin, I had to get the leaky tire fixed. Worse yet, the screw was at the edge of the sidewall, so the hole could not be plugged. Fortunately, there was a road hazard warranty on the tire so the new tire only cost $15! Anyway, that pretty much killed the morning so I decided to do some geocaches locally. What I had in mind was to finally finish the LOTR (Lord of the Rings) cache series. This is a 20-cache series that I'd been working on since August. It took that long because not all the caches came out at the same time, some caches depended on having found other caches in the series, and I kept having other plans throughout the fall and winter months. So when I had the opportunity to finish off the last few, I just had to do it! It is a very good series. The caches incorporate themes from the LOTR story. There were a number of tricks, puzzles, and challenges along the way. Nothing was overly difficult but those were enough to make one think. LOTR #20, the last cache in the series, could have been the most difficult one, but I figured out the trick quickly because of experience with other similar caches. After I was done with the LOTR series, I headed over to Eastern Shore Maryland for a batch of caches on two of the fingers of the upper Chesapeake and that was it for the day.

On Sunday, I went to North Reading and Muhlenberg Township, skipping right past the bad areas (or so I'd been told) of Reading. The goal was to do the No Muhles Allowed cache series on the Muhlenberg Rail Trail but as usual, I did some geocaches around that part of town first while waiting for the sun to go down a bit. I usually don't like graffiti but I thought this "Joy" graffiti, where the rail trail went under a road bridge, was an exception. It looks like whoever did this used a big stencil. I also couldn't resist photographing a box turtle who was right in the middle of the path.

It rained all day on Saturday but I figured I could still do some geocaches, as long as there wasn't too much walking. So I went for the Ted Harvey series in Kent County. These geocaches are all along a dirt road in the Ted Harvey Conservation Area. Only the last one, the TB Hotel, was beyond a closed gate and took about a 0.1-mile hike. I didn't get too wet from the rain. On the way to Ted Harvey, I noticed a big fire on Bay Road. The smoke was thick enough to obscure vision and slow traffic to a crawl on DE Route 1. It was still smoldering after I did the 17 Ted Harvey caches and returned to that area. Nothing to worry about though. I found out later that it was merely a training exercise for Dover-area firefighters. For the rest of the day, I just finished off the rest of the new caches in the county with a tour around Dover, Camden and Felton.

Sunday had good weather. There was a geocaching event in the northern Philadelphia area but at the last minute, I decided against attending that one. So I remained fairly local. After a Hardee's breakfast, I geocached in Elkton and Chesapeake City before returning to Newark, Pike Creek, and Wilmington. The last cache of the day was at the Greenbank Dam ruins and by then, I had 25 finds for the day, all within 20 miles of home. Not bad at all!

Like Christmas, New Year's Day is on a Tuesday, turning that day, New Year's Eve, and the regular weekend into another four-day weekend! It snowed a bit on Saturday but after the snow stopped in the afternoon, I still had enough daylight for a bit of geocaching in the snow over in Newark and Elkton. It wasn't much of a snowfall, so the roads were generally fine. There was only a bit of snow on the ground in wooded areas but even that melted away by the next day.

On Sunday, I continued geocaching in Newark and Elkton. There were over 40 geocaches, all Christmas-themed, placed by Amanda and Knobbie in that area. Most of those caches were ornaments and figurines. It was rather amazing. I continued southwards to Chesapeake City and Cecilton. Finished the day with "Take me out to the ball game....", a challenging 4-stage multicache. Well, it was only challenging because of the icy cold weather but fortunately, I could drive around to the other side of the park to shorten the walk for the last two stages.

After Sunday's outing, I figured that I needed only 13 more geocaches to make December my top month. (beating September 2012's count of 341) That was a snap to do. I went up through Southern NJ, from Woodbury to Riverside, and surpassed that by the early afternoon. That day was my first visit in several years to Palmyra Cove Nature Park, which is known for being the park where if you miss the exit, you end up on the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge to Pennsylvania! However, I saw that they've added a new entrance further from the bridge, so there's not as much danger of that now. It's a nice place to walk and see whitetail deer and wild turkey, which are still active in the winter.

I felt a bit lethargic on New Year's Day, so I decided not to keep it a low-key day. "Grandma's Reindeer", another Amanda & Knobbie cache, was the most amusing cache of the day. It's a toy Grandma in a truck with a reindeer strapped to the bonnet. When you push the button, it moves and plays "Grandma got run over by a Reindeer". After that, I continued on to Central Delaware. There's a series of geocaches, "Hope", "Imagine", "Laugh", and "Live", which I needed to find in order to get the coordinates for "The Wonder of the Geo-Cacher". I could only find "Hope" and "Imagine" because there was fishing activity at the other two spots. Fortunately, it turns out that I didn't need all the information to locate the final cache. With those two digits missing, I only had to search along a 500-foot north-south line. I was able to see the hiding spot from pretty far away, so that was trivial. It was also a good day to tackle "Dino Danny". Ordinarily, the thick brush would make it a 4-star geocache but in the middle of winter, I was able to walk right in, only stopping to clip a few branches here and there.

Just like the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in November, Christmas was another 4-day weekend. Just like Thanksgiving, I didn't take advantage of the ham (this time) deal at Warehouse Club, so I decided to take an overnight trip to Absecon. (not quite Atlantic City) I planned to continue seeking the bike trail geocaches just outside of Mays Landing, but I got distracted so there are still some remaining for another holiday trip.

Saturday was a short trip out to Northeast Philadelphia to do the "Along the Pennypack" series of geocaches. There used to be a series of geocaches along the Pennypack Creek but the cache owner moved out of state. So this is a new series placed by someone else. It was a lot of walking but it's a good series and I had little or no trouble with any of the geocaches this time. After that, I went to Cheltenham and Willow Grove for a bunch more geocaches before heading to dinner and home. "AMC's - The Walking Night" was a night cache using a trail of reflectors. Of course, I've done a number of these before but it's always an interesting exercise to follow something other than the GPS.

On Sunday, I stayed closer to home to tackle some longer hikes and puzzle caches. The puzzles were "The Treasure of Ima Wiener" (simple binary puzzle but a nice walk), "The Cache of Wolfenstien Enigma" (decode an Enigma machine message, World War II style), and "LOTR #16 - The Stairs of Cirith Ungol". (counting and math)

It has become a trend lately to hold geocaching events on special dates, although Groundspeak's special souvenir for finding a cache on 12/12/12 also served to encourage this. So I was able to attend 3 events, all not too far from home, on that day! I decided not to take a day off from work since two of those events were right in this county and could fit my schedule.

The first event I attended was the midnight event, "12-12-12 @ 12:12:12 AM New Jersey". It was in the parking lot of a strip mall in Deptford. I left home a bit after dinner but I was so early that I had time to do a few geocaches before getting to the event. We actually had quite a crowd going, which was funny because the rest of the shopping center was deserted by that time.

The next event I attended was "12-12-12 @ 12:12:12 PM Flash Mob Event" at the quiet side of the Prices Corner Shopping Center parking lot in Wilmington. We decorated a tree, had cookies, and found a bonus cache, "121212121212", on the other side of the shopping center.

The last event of the day was "Meet, Greet & Eat on 12/12/12" at 6:12pm outside SAS Cupcakes in downtown Newark. This too was rather well-attended despite the traffic and parking problems that evening and even though we all had to fit on the sidewalk! We had cupcakes. After this event, some of us went to look for "Old Man Cooches' Hat", the bonus cache for this event.
