Best caching day ever.
133 caches today. 131 from the L.O.S.T. C&D Rails to Trails series that I biked for 35 miles today. What I did was to find every other cache on the trail when riding away from the car, and on the way back pick up the ones I skipped. That worked out very well. Otherwise it would have been too much stopping at one time.
I planned to get more, but once I got past Quarrysville I ran into a big problem at Hollow Road. The trail, I mean silt - mud pit, turned me back.
The silt - mud was so bad it locked the crank on my bike; I was not thrilled at all about having to get my foot out of the clipless pedal and place it into the muck. I was trying to get to what looked like a tunnel and see if it got better on the other side, but never made it that far.
When I got back to the Hollow Road, I bounced the bike off the road several times trying to get the hunks of mud off it. Huge globs where falling off the bike.
Then I started to ride back very slowly to keep the mud from flying off the tires and getting all over my backback. I was happy when I notice the stream that ran beside the trail just across the road had a deep spot that came to the middle of the bike tires. So I basically through the bike in to wash off the silt and mud.
That worked great except for the fact now all the oil washed out of the crank and gears and I had a squeaky bike the whole rest of the trip. LOL
I stopped to eat lunch on the trail. Had chicken, mashed potatoes, stuffing and gravy, which refueled me for finding more caches.
I know of a few other cachers on the site and thought I'd share.
