Keeping the Windmill Alive - Your last trip? – June 2013

 

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.

I spend the winter in Mexico (6 months) so my postings to POI Factory were few and far between. I lost my windmill. How long does it take for it to return?

The Moose Is Loose! nuvi 760

colorado springs to San Jose

Used my garmin usa app on my iphone. Traffic on that is very reliable. Chose the least bad route back into the Bay Area and adjusted several times as the traffic conditions changed.

Also found the exit services feature to be very useful on the 1400 mile drive.

We left 1 June as planned.

Three days later and the little Nuvi has guided us to friends in Washington state. A few down days and it's on to Alaska!

Vacation

Just got back from a Caribbean Cruise in Florida. We decided to stay a week and do Disneyworld. I rented a car and drove from Ft. Lauderdale to Orlando. Thanks to my GPS, I could avoid all the toll roads. Then we decided to drive to New Orleans. Thanks to my GPS, we were able to get where we wanted to be. I always keep all my POI's updated just for instances like this.

Be certain to change the display to kilometers while in Canada. That way you can use it as a speedometer.

Final week

Got 2700 miles logged so far and this is our last night in Maine. Been great week - Big Bro's 80th B'day, and our accomodations right on the harbor of Ogunquit overlooking the harbor and the ocean beyond.
Move down to NH tomorrow for a week and then a couple days in Upstate NY and then heading home to FL.
Our Taurus and "Jack" have performed very well.
Should be home on the 17th.
Glad we're missing all the rain in FL.

Thanks Globe Turtle

I enjoy doing a synopsis - hey, maybe somebody here at POI Factory is thinking of vacationing in Maine and my experiences can assist them !
Also have a few reviews I've done on Trip Advisor !
Also checked out several of the "lobster shacks" on my POI listing ! As an excuse, I say I have to make sure they should still be in the POI file !
