In danger of losing your windmill?
Maybe you can share with us the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you use it to seek out special places to go (like Thai Food, ice cream shoppes, etc.) Anything to keep your windmill alive.
This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.
Starting off July around the general home area - groceries and local shopping. Maybe some short treks later in the week. Google nav app working fine to/from work and fairly tame traffic, which is always welcome.
I do HVAC service work and my job takes me up to 200 miles from my house on a daily basis. Some of the places I have never been to. I don't know what I would do without my GPS. I guess I would be back to paper maps.
Garmin USA on my iPhone, with traffic, saved me at least 40 minutes the other day by routing me around some nasty holiday traffic
Drove from Tennessee to lower S Carolina and back yesterday on the 95 & 26. Coming back, hit major thunderstorm & flash floods in Columbia. Raining so hard that most people had to slow down to the speed limit.
In Spartenburg, hit hail. Stones little bigger than marbles (aggies). Pounded the poop out of my wifes car. Drove through it in about 5 minutes, but very scary. Thought the windshield was gonna implode any minute. Several dings in the car now.
Phoenix to Camp Verde and then bouncing around for a few days around Jerome and Sedona.
going to zoo on the 4th.
We drove around the county today. We saw nice looking corn and soy bean crops.
It's good to be back. I had 1 week in South Korea and one week in China. I didn't rent a car, but it's good to have a GPS to save the hotel and metro station locations for when you are talking around.
a drive down to Iowa City tomorrow.
Garmin GPS store - lots of floor space for such small devices.....
Used to get Midland, On. for a friends birthday boat cruise, then to on to Honey Harbour for the party.
and made it back in time for some real heat, like much of the US
Headed to the All Chrysler Nationals at Carlisle, PA for the weekend. Since I have the "back way" saved on my GPS, I beat all the traffic!
Drove to Ocean City, MD in 100 degrees temperature.
106 degrees, no fun!, hope yours was a bit cooler
for a few days of camping with friends. Got to get out of this blasted heat...106 today and climbing
Headed out camping at the end of July for a few days of rest and relaxation.
Lancaster PA .
Always enjoyed going to Lancaster area and Amish country. Brings you back to reality !
Done it 4-5 times over the past 25 years !
Hope you enjoyed it Charlie !
Drove north to Dublin for my daughter's housewarming last weekend. My new nuvi 2250 gave me some weird routings!
for a Thibodaux Family Reuion on Friday and than on to the Casinos.
Two days after we received 15" of rain in a day and a half from Debby we headed from home in Florida to family in Indiana. We arrived just in time for a storm with 95 mph winds followed by 103 degree for several days. Finally back in FL and the weather is reasonable for now.
I used both the Ford Edge navigation and the Garmin 3490. The Garmin worked best but each had features that made the trip easier.
Went traveling around NJ flea markets, no problems.
I used my 765 in my SUV last Friday to get my daughter, son, and son-in-law to my son-in-law's uncle in Beaufort SC. Worked well but it would not find their address, maybe because I tried Beaufort instead of Lady's Island. I could remember the island name. So I got the coordinates out of Google and it got us close. From there David remembered how to find their house.
I am in Hilton Head right now on another trip and will drive to work and then home tomorrow morning. My only difficulty this trip is I did not look up the address of the hotel before I left. I usually just send a location from Google maps to my favorites but forgot and it wasn't working (Google) when I last tried this. So I waited until I was reasonably close and searched for Marriott properties and guessed correctly where my reservation is. Not really the nuvi's fault (my 885t in my convertible this time).
Glad to be home.
Going to a new restaurant for a company project dinner. Worked great until I drove into the huge parking lot.
Hope you enjoyed it Charlie !
Right about that.We enjoy coming down to Amish country. The show Jonah was great.Took are friends today to the Strasburg train ride then the buggy ride.Rest of the day at the Kitchen Kettle Village.
Went to Dunkirk,NY then to Grove City PA. then to Detroit MI,then to Windsor ,Ontario,then home. 1800 KM.
I'd probably be on the moon by now without mine as I'm terrible with direction!
Drove up on Monday for a meeting, an easy drive. I only used the GPS to keep me aware of the time of arrival.
Drove from Chicago to Gulf shores, AL to Macon, GA back to Chicago and the 3590 performed like a champ.
Traffic was good not great but it notified me of all events.
Routing was great except one miscue where it told me to turn right but the the map showed a left turn. Luckily I chose the map and not the voice guidance.
Awesome unit along with my 3490.
Several varied short local trips. Breaking in a new car.
From San Francisco To LA on 101
My last trip was to Carmel and Monterey CA
Baltimore, MD to Dover, DE.
Drove from Houston, Texas to Nashville, Tennessee
... upstate NY. We've made the trip so many times I think my car could get there on it's own. Biggest value of the GPS is creating detours around I-95 problems.
Only take I-95 up to exit 133 in VA and take route 17N up to I-66 to I-81 North. Then when you get to Binghamton, NY you can either continue on I-81 or take I-88 North.
Costs you a little more driving time but you avoid the BIG traffic concerns on I-95 above Fredericksburg plus you avoid $10-15 in tolls.
Far more relaxing drive too IMHO !
We drive it a couple times a year from Ormond Beach area !
No significant travel last week, used the Google nav app to and from work. Overall, traffic was lighter than usual - must be due to folks enjoying some summer vacation days.
Down to Point No Point for a trip out on the Chesapeake for some night Croaker fishing. Came home with over 6 pounds of fillets.
For the race.
High to all.
Spent a few days in the Adirondacks soaking up sun and scenery! Whiteface Mtn is spectacular!
I purchased lifetime maps last week for my Garmin 255W and it works great. I have not updated my maps in 3 or 4 years.
5 days of camping in the mountains. Got us out of the triple digit heat We were camping with friends and had a great time.
In southern CT by way of Middletown, Essex, Old Saybrook
Drove down to San Luis Obispo to store daughter's furniture from her apartment in one of those storage locker places. I could not believe how much you can stuff into a 5' by 10' by 10' high space. We put a 6' couch, loveseat, mattress, desk, dresser, lamps, and a lot of boxes.
Went to NYC to see the 911 memorial and then down to Atlantic city before coming home. GPS worked perfectly and got us out of 2 heavy traffic situations. What did we ever do before GPS. Simply an amazing technology that I hope I never take for granted.
I am driving to Akron OH Tomorrow...
