The days, and the rides are finally getting longer. After last weeks 42 mile ride, we tacked on additional few and made this one a solid 58 miles (93 km) long. We met at the department at 6:15AM but postponed the departure because it was still dark, we postponed the departure until about 7AM. Oh, and it was also solid 30 degrees F outside, which to the rest of the World translates to just about -1 degrees C. Regardless of the temperature it was supposed to be a very sunny day with no clouds and abundant blue sky.

Another geocaching “hike” on Long Island, the first one since our return from Slovakia. This time, I was joined by Richard who quite suddenly started geocaching himself. The weather was very nice, sunny but relatively cool and breezy and we even had Curie the dog with us for the day. I have geocached in the area before, in the Maple Swamp County Park to be exact. That time, we also ventured a bit into Hubbard County to pick up a few caches. There were, however, enough caches left to warrant another visit.

As Francis’ visit on Long Island was coming to an end, we decided to do some geocaching on the Eastern end of Long Island. The weather reports for Saturday looked rather gloomy, but since we haven’t geocached together in a while we were determined to go rain or shine. I put together a pretty busy itinerary of almost 30 geocaches in the Maple Swamp County Park as well as in the Hubbard County Park, close to Riverhead, on the south fork of Long Island.
