Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – April 2014


In danger of losing your windmill?

Maybe you can share the last place your GPS took you and if you encountered any problems, or if you used 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.

Went to Outerbanks NC

Needed to see the ocean from living in the mountains

Mesa AZ to Vancouver Island, BC

Traveled home from our winter house in Mesa with our Nuvi3597 and a 3790 as backup (not needed).

We always try to take a different route and this time be picked Hwy 1 and 101 all the way from Cambria CA to Port Angeles WA. Haven't done it in years and it's still one of the most beautiful drives in North America (although I like the southbound route better than the northbound - keeps getting warmer.)

Used my Garmin

today to find POIs in a city 60 miles from home. Don't drive there much so it was handy to find the nearest Walgreens, Walmart, and Panera Bread for lunch.

If at first you don't succeed....redefine success

San Jose to Saint Helena

Gorgeous time of year in the Napa Valley. Heavy traffic in the morning but it would have been worse without some re-routing.

Gone Fishin'

Went fishing this weekend. Left yesterday with my Honey to Woodland, WA. We spent the day visiting an operating grist mill .. Cedar Creek Grist Mill. Beautiful drive and a great experience. From there we visited the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens, and the tulip fields.

Today, I went fishing and she went shopping. She spent money and I got skunked. Was a great day anyway.

BTW this is my hometown which I had not visited since 1969. So much the same with the school, but town has changed, but then so have I. We have both gotten older and in need of some repairs. In driving around without "Get Lost" we kinda got lost and found where "my" new high school will be built, and to be dedicated in 2015 - the year of my 50th reunion. Without getting lost I would have never known about the new high school. Sometimes getting a bit lost is OK.

I'm local this week....

Wife used the Nuvi to...

find shopping malls and other points of interest for a "Ladies Day Out" around town smile

Last trip was driving back

Last trip was driving back to California from Kansas. Used the Garmin to help find Gas Stations, lodging, and restaurants. On this trip I also used an iphone app to help find pet friendly hotels along with an app called iExits to supplement the Garmin. Worked out really well.

New Garmin

Just got 2598LMT. Better direction

Thanx BiLL Solomon

Hit the warehouse stores and stocked up. No major traffic issues and nice weather.


"Limping" home after my fencing class. I had a hard time paying attention to the road due to muscle aches, and the map helped a bunch.

I'm getting too old for this exercise thing.
