Biking The Highway 52 Bike Path

I hauled the bike over to Santee so I could ride the 52 bike path and pick up some geocaches. Boy, that sucker is busy (the highway) during the morning rush! And NOISY! I was deafened!

I found an orphaned geocache sitting in the bike path. I've contacted the owner to see what he wants to do about it.

There is a lot of trash along the highway. And as an official Dumpster Diver I had to keep my eye out for "good stuff". I found a very cute kid's sun hat tie wrapped to an Easter basket. but I declined to pick it up. On the other hand, I found a Tilly hat in very good condition that I will wear proudly, after running it through the washing machine! It's a very expensive hat, too!

It was nice and overcast for the ride, too. Very nice. I found that stopping every five minutes to rest look for geocaches made the climb up the grade very easy.

I was reading some cacher's blog and they had posted pictures of every one of their milestone cache finds. One hundredth find, two hundredth find, etc. Maybe I will go back and take a picture at each of mine.

But, I digress.

When I got home some guy in a big truck that said "Meat" on the side stopped and asked me if I wanted to buy some steaks. He said he had some left over from his deliveries in the neighborhood. I declined. He seem surprised.

Great hat find. The meat trucks must be out on the prowl. We had one drive through our neighborhood not too long ago. We've also had the seafood truck too. I'm to chicken to buy anything.
