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 transported a trapped skunk out to a wooded area far away.
at 5 local Home Depots around where I live.
Local bills and mailing the rest out.
I flew from Philadelphia to Denver with my nüvi 3597. Drove 950 miles from Denver to Pine Ridge, SD, to the Crazy Horse Memorial and Mount Rushmore, then back to Denver via eastern Wyoming. Glad I had the GPS. It helped me find restaurants, hotels, and attractions.
Two replicas of Christopher Columbus sailed up the Mississippi to Davenport IA. I enjoyed touring them today.
Found a car parts store in Nokomis FL
State College PA - middle of nowhere
In southern Europe my gps went out for good, now time for a new one. I need one with N America & Europe maps.
Went to a medical clinic on a street I never heard of but only a couple of miles away. My Nuvi 1350 was in the car and my Nuvi 855 was on the cycle so I just used the computer and Mapquest.
Next week (if the weather cooperates) another cycle ride in Eastern Ontario.
Took a trip to the Great Smokey Mountains (Gatlinburg) for a few days. On the way back up north I was in no hurry so I took US Rt 25 instead of the I-75. Really pleasant to take the slower route and see the countryside for a change. The horse farms around Lexington were beautiful.
Last trip was up to Cinci to catch a Cubs/Reds game at the Great American Ball Park.
My second time there. Not bad, but not one of my favorites of the 'newer' parks - that'd be reserved for Busch, Nationals Park and Miller Park.
Still, a very fun journey.
Oh, and the Cubs lost.
Traveling to KC
What was most interesting was that the return trip by way of Gatlinburg had suggested taking I55 to I12 instead of taking I59 to I12 for the last portion of the trip. GPSr was set to fastest time. However, knowing that I59 was the better/faster route, we ignored "Crissy", did it our way, and watched for the change in arrival time as "Crissy" recalculated... which she did ... and her new arrival time became 4 minutes EARLIER.... Needless to say Crissy had/has "no clue" on how to determine the faster time...Go figure.
restock the camper for the return trip home from Alaska. Let the summer adventure continue!
Smithville, NJ Nice area restaurants, shops even has a little railroad.
Thinking of driving up north again.
Our last trip was in April to Clarksdale, MS for a small bluesfest and to Helena, AR to visit friends.
Last trip: Newburyport on a Friday. Bad beach traffic, so we added "avoid highways" and had a nice tour of the back roads in that area. Would never have taken any of those roads on our own.
I was in he suburbs of Atlanta GA for business. POI most helpful for finding good BBQ
A long-under-construction road extension in Morgan Hill - Gilroy south of me has finally opened. It cuts a few miles off my trip to visit cow-orkers (sic), and even better, my Nuvi shows me cruising on featureless gray space!
It will be interesting to see when the maps get updated for this one.
(For the curious, it's Watsonville Road, with the new part from Monterey Road to Tennant. Not a really big deal, other than the area has been torn up for over a year. Yeah, I know, small potatoes compared to Boston's Big Dig which had been going on for at least a century...)
Off to see the grandkids. down side great weather planned for Ohio and 100°F for Texas.
Great drive through the Sierra Nevada mountains. Wonderful place to visit just off Hwy 395 in the town of Lee Vining.
down my city streets...
...and up my city hall =]
Went on vacation with wife (sans kids) to Florida, driving from Ft Lauderdale to Key West, and then returning to Miami Beach for a few more days.
Heading to New Mexico this week
Brought the grandsons home to Maryland after they spent a week with us.
last trip was to sunny very sunny HOT Lost Vegas
Seattle, Portland, Oregon & Denver.
My Nuvi 350 did fine in finding many locations I need while on holiday.
What did we ever do prior to GPS's???
Maps just don't do it.
I transported a trapped skunk out to a wooded area far away.
I hope the skunk doesn't have a GPS and finds his way back...
Me, I took a trip up to the Poconos for the NASCAR race weekend.
No trips this week but both Detroit and Minneapolis next week.
Just downloaded the 2014.10 maps and am getting ready for a trip to Myrtle Beach in three weeks.
Visited Wilmington, NC this weekend for the first time. I flew down from NYC but used the Nuvi 3490LMT locally. Great fun!
I went around Southern Ontario. Today was a Provincial holiday, so I took to the road and went without a plan.
Returning from a golf game I didn't need route info so I did not turn on the Nuvi. A choice of routes was a 2-lane vs. a 'series 400' (divided) highway. I chose the wrong one. The 'traffic' info might have saved me 20 minutes but the radio station traffic info did not mention it so the Nuvi traffic info might not have had it either.
Sound like your timing is for the World Amateur in MYR.
Watched it one year while my buddy participated. Quite a week!!
Hit 'em straight.
Going to Northern Illinois to spoil the grandkids, feed them lots of junk food and sugary drinks, get them all wound up and then heading back home, letting their parents deal with the aftermath.
That is what Grandparents are for. Spoil the Grand Kids and that send them home.
Nothing but beauty. Wisconsin has many hidden gems.
last weekend, avoided interstates for most of the trip except for a few short stretches as it is more pleasant taking US and state highways.
Was very surprised that Garmin's maps did not have I-69 in Indiana.
And where I go "Jack" goes with me....
My maps are out of date (too cheap to update), so the POI's were out of date as well.
I did punch in the address of my wife's niece who had moved since our last visit, and "Jack" got me within 20 yards of their driveway.
good enough for me....
Due to highway construction, I found a surface-street route across town to a distant suburb.
Drove from South Chicago suburbs up to OshKosh WI. to see VanHalen. Great Time!
the big wheel
Checked out the sales at Dicks Sporting Goods - getting ready for fall sports. No traffic/nav issues.
