Geocaching: Fall 2020

Well, I'm glad I'm doing meteorological fall (so it consists of exactly three months), but I don't have a lot to report.

I found 12 caches in this season, none of them far afield, given the state of the world.

In September, I started out with a relatively new one in Maryland, near a Target pickup I did. Then I did a couple within biking distance of home. One of them was my first August 2020 cache (though it was archived in November) -- that's Month 212.

I got one near a drive-through CVS while I waited for a prescription to be filled, and then a couple of more in Maryland.

October was even slower. I got three near home, and one in Maryland shortly after it was placed to give me October 2020 (Month 213).

I only got two in November, one on a bike ride, and another "waiting" find.

At 110, I likely won't exceed my all-time record of 134 from 2016, but I have a good chance of beating my second-place total of 119 in 2018.

I'll count this as 34 missing months, since December was not available in Fall. Still, that's up 1 from Summer, and I suspect I won't make much progress on most of my geocaching goals until travel is possible again.
