We went down to our daughter's house to help her with some household chores and to have lunch with her.  There is a nice sub shop up here on the mountain that makes great subs, so we picked up some for the three of us.  As usual, they were delicious. 

I worked on an old computer of theirs to try and clean up some nasty viruses on it and halfway succeeded.  It is better, but more work will have to be done to have it safe to use.  

It was a nice day out so I decided to pick up a few geocaches nearby that had been placed lately.  They were listed as easy ones to find so off I went.  This was another of those days when driving to the cache area consisted of the roads getting progressively worse, but also much more beautiful.  The caches weren't that easy to find and it took me a lot longer than it should for the degree of difficulty.  In any case the first two were found and logged in.  

The third cache proved to be more difficult.  Maryland has a lot of backroads that seem to go nowhere and all of sudden a small hamlet will appear.  That was the case today.  I drove all over the place following the GPS directions and it seemed to be a roundabout way to get there.  Once I arrived at the location I saw about 5-6 campers sitting right on the spot of the cache.  They were early arrivals for an old gasoline engine display for the upcoming weekend.  One of the guys came over and chatted with me for a while and explained everything about the engines and their club.  His 7.5 HP engine was on a trailer and weighed 1800lbs, while others had small ones you could pick up and carry very easily.

They were all in their 60's and older and seemed to be having a great time.  They were at a Ruritan Club picnic area and using the electricity from the outdoor pavilion there.  Limited electric to say the least.  One of the guys was the camp cook and had been cooking pork and sauerkraut all afternoon and it smelled delicious.  I was waiting for an invitation, but didn't get one.  Darn it!

We hung around Cassie's after dinner and watched the Skins-Cowboys game on Monday night football.  It wasn't a very good game from my point of view and the Skins blew it in the end.  Such is life.
