Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? - September 2012


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.

Local on the bike

Just did a short hop on the Harley before the rain arrives for the weekend.

Used the zumo 665 weather radar to watch the edge of the rain approaching chasing me back home.

Price of Gas

With the price of gas, many of us can't travel far. We still use the GPS for local driving around the Phoenix area.

We left on Friday to enjoy

We left on Friday to enjoy the RibFest activities in Sparks, Nevada. It normally takes about 4 hours but the Labor Day traffic and rush hour traffic made it a 6 hour ordeal. Anyway we got there and were told that the expected attendance this year is 200,000 visitors to the RibFest. We hope everyone will be enjoying Labor Day tomorrow.

My Last Trip Was...

Washington, DC to Canton, OH.

Labor Day Weekend

went from Lubbock, TX to West, TX. Headed out on US 84 to Abilene and then continued on through Brownwood to Waco.

Coming home from Waco we needed to stop back in West to pick up some baked goods ( Gerik's Bakery is a must for kolaches ) and then continued on I35 north to Fort Worth catching I20 West to Abilene then North on 84 home.

GPS worked fine getting us around the city of Waco and on the Farm to Market roads between Waco and West.

MD to RI and Return

Took a 400-mile trip to RI this past weekend. Nuvi setting was for fastest route. It had me taking numerous back roads at each end of the trip. I used preprinted Google directions where the two differed. Google seemed to make more sense in its choices.

And the Nuvi directed route back was different than the the route there.

Glad to have the Nuvi anyway. It gives a good ETA and watches out for exits and turns.

Last Trip?

Sacramento to San Francisco to Dublin to Sacramento this week end. GPSr had trouble in the city around tall buildings - lots of "Recalculating" going on - otherwise no problems. Good thing I'm familiar with the city.

2:30 Wake up, 6:00 AM Flight

I've been invited to join my 4 year old grand daughter on her Make-A-Wish trip to Disney. Where else would a little girl who plays dress up as a princess everyday go?

I'll carry the zumo 665 with me to get around but the pilot will do the majority of the navigation on this trip. I hope he updated his POIs! laugh out loud
