These plans changed, though, when I got a call from a friend of mine whom I've been talking with for a while online, inviting me to meet up yesterday morning. Was hard to say no, so I ended up postponing those original plans and headed out to meet up with her. It ended up being a very good day.
The cache I ended up placing earlier today, at another park near here. It's the one I intended to place last weekend, but couldn't find a good spot for it when I was looking for one then. This weekend, my luck was quite a bit better :-)
