Attending "The Best Donuts" Flash Mob in Hagerstown, MD where several hundred geocachers invaded a hole in the wall donut place known as Krumpe's Do-Nuts. It was rather cool out (low 50s) and a bit drizzly but that did not detour anyone. 
Bumped into a lot of familiar faces and everyone seemed to take home a box of these scrumptious morsels each. Lots of pre-GeoWoodstock XIII going on tonight.

It always seems to happen. We want to go out and paint the town with geocache finds but then we find a very cool place. Like this cemetery in Hagerstown, MD. One geocache find and some memorable experiences.

I have been to several other Andy's and this particular one is tired and run down. The food is okay but they have shrunk the portions and the staff don't exactly act like they even want to be there. Shame it used to be a favorite spot of mine.

If you hit the wait staff on a good day it goes well. However, there tends to be a lot of mistakes. Food is always good.
