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.
Nowhere tonight. Not the designated driver. Happy New Year to all.
Then to bed. Later to my Mom's.
just got up!
with family for the New Year!
Bed to my recliner and made a run to the bathroom.
Chips and dips for the Rose Bowl game. Go Badgers.
Little boys room
...and it was S.R.O.! ...Really crowded!
(How crowded was it?)
It was so crowded that I needed a GPS to navigate to the men's room!
Quiet start to 2013 travel-wise. Just out and about for essential shopping. Safe travels all!
It is nice not having to depend on a cell phone for directions.
Just got back from NC with TomTom leading the way. I like the ETA, travel time to destination and miles to destination feature.
Due to cabin fever, and my wife's mother in hospice care, driving me crazy, I did a December 18th, solo drive from East Bend, NC to the Station Inn in Cresson, Pa for a couple days of trainspotting. Lots of RR activity, with Altoona close by, made for some fun snowy train videos. Just posted it on YouTube under my username "oldtimerguy58", if anyone is interested. Also some antique clock vids. All with no ads, just for fun.
Annual Full Moon Bus Club New Bus Resolutions Campout:
Table Rock State Park in Pinnacle, SC, about 340 miles from here in Atlanta. Along the way, I plotted the usual the habits- stops for lunch, fuel, beer and groceries, and also stumbled across a thrift store.
An entire Brita pitcher full of water left outside on my picnic table on Saturday night froze solid, but it's pretty easy to keep a bus warm with an electric space heater.
a great New Year with family in CA.
We are camping this week at Big Bend National Park, and it is freezing here! Hopefully someplace warmer next week...
We stayed in a beach house in an unincorporated community. Fortunately, my old C580 was pretty close with the address, although we got turned around in the darkness on the single-lane gravel roads.
Driving around Northern New Jersey finally ending up at Garden State Plaza.
Last Year we drove the family to Colorado to drop my eldest daughter off at college after winter break, stopping to Ski Along the way.
...to get a routine maintenance car service.
Trip to the doctor, Menards, grocery store and our favorite Mexican place for lunch.
I notice that two intersections had longer yellow lights. I wonder what that is all about.
to Mt. Lemmon, Arizona
Mount Magazine State Park
I had to move a car from Florida to New York after the one in NY got taken by Sandy.
I used to take that trip a few times a year. Thank God for my GPS around Washington DC.
A lot of new roads to get lost on.
Made life a lot easier.
To Marksville, La Wednesday for a little R&R at the casino.
Birthplace of the incomparable harmonica bluesman Marion "Little Walter" Jacobs
I used my new Android-based TomTom on a trip to San Antonio over Christmas. It was nice having the speed limit displayed, but I forgot to add the rest area POI before we left. I have since fixed that problem.
I hope TT adds voice input in an update soon, I miss that function from Google Maps. It is easier to find a place "on the fly" using voice input, like "Where's the nearest Starbucks (or whatever it might be you're looking for)?"
Used the Garmin to find an annex to the hospital downtown.
Loaded up addresses for an up coming trip.
Just a couple of short trips for shopping this weekend. No major traffic issues and decent weather.
Starting on Saturday 12/30, I drove w/ wife to Delaware, then I drove back home solo on Sunday, then back to Delaware on Monday after work, and finally back home again on 1/1!
Been up the top of the south island for 3 weeks, had nice Xmas with the family
Actually, Oak Park. Visiting grandkids.
Happy New Year
Bethesda, MD to Baltimore, MD to watch some play-off football. Easy trip and a good result.
Navigated to a water stop at a marathon in Camarillo, CA to volunteer giving gatorade, water, and power gel (nutrition food sorta like cake frosting in a single-serve squeeze pack). Old Garmin 760 still working, slow but hanging in there. The battery was replaced in that recall a couple of years ago but it doesn't hold a charge well. This might be its last year.
...water stop at a marathon in Camarillo, CA ... volunteer...
how about that congress?
for our annual beat-the-winter-blues trip
Blowing the carbon out of the old truck. (That expression is a carryover from my dad's generation.)
...my GPS was a Garmin Forerunner 205.
Heading for mid to upper 20's the next 4 days. That's dang cold for the Phoenix AZ area.
In the Aravaca desert area.
Last night the missus and I went to the Auburn Twin Oaks Winery. Kind of an interesting place: It's open only two Saturdays a month and reservations are required. It's only three years old and a very nice place, lots of wood beams, hard wood floors - that kind of stuff. The wine's not cheap, but the red zinfandel that we had was excellent.
The winery is really off the beaten path, but my Nuvi 1450 got us there just fine.
CT to see Les Miserables
we've never been. This is when the Nuvi pays for itself
Used my GPS heavily while on a business trip to Seattle last week.
Well worth the trip.
Again, I hate Mondays
Bethesda, MD to Pasadena, MD
