last year) of taking a long bike ride and doing some geocaching along the way.
Last year I started at the northern section of the Neuse River Trail in Raleigh NC. and stopped 2/3rds(ish) of the way down. This year I did the southern 2/3rds of the trail.
I got my wife to drop me off at the beginning trailhead, and I headed off.
The morning was cool - 25f or so, and it barely rose about 40f all day. Just like last year I headed south on my mountain bike and started grabbing caches.
Actually, first I had to go north a ways to snag the very first cache. The cache was actually across the Neuse River, over this rather cool looking pedestrian bridge.
After lunch I continued south. Eventually I crossed over from Wade County to Johnston County.
A short while later I came across this rather pretty looking view of the river.
Actually there is a parking lot a bit father back down the trail and off to the right. That is where my wife picked me up.
Today I rode 25.01 miles, and found 31 geocaches. Another great Black Friday spent out on the trails.
... and I still didn't have to step inside a store.
