Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – November 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.

lovely trip to visit friends in Gold Country this weekend.

Nuvi 3597 LMT

Corona CA

Had business trip to Corona, CA, where my company is converting HOV lanes to toll lanes on SR.-91.

Blacksburg VA

Garmin did not verbally identify if I should take the A, B, or C exit ramp from the collector-distributor road (I-81 exit 118). Should have taken the B ramp but avoiding the merging traffic from the on-ramp cloverleaf (right side) and the left lane driver that cut in front of me to take the exit did not permit me to look at the screen. Had to take the C ramp and backtrack to get on the desired route...

I guess I shouldn't complain too much, made the trip safely and didn't have to go another 10 miles and turn around. But I did wake the SO with my (expletives deleted)...

Used my Nuvi 1300WT GPS and spent the day (9am to 3pm) having a good time at a Historical School House program.


I'm not really lost.... just temporarily misplaced!

On a six week vacation and enjoying the time off but I've been quite busy this first week doing odd jobs around my townhouse.

My 255W worked flawlessly on the entire 1625 mile trip once again !

Cheers to y'all smile

Las Vegas

In Las Vegas for a few days using the Garmin to guide me to some new casino buffets and restaurants.

November Windmill

Enjoyed a wonderful time with fellow bikers riding the Talimena Scenic Parkway this past weekend. Weather was absolutely beautiful. Great wind therapy! - Garmin worked like a charm. Stayed overnite in Mena, Ark and had a wonderful breakfast at the Skyline Cafe before heading home to North Texas.

Took the GPS out for a shake down.


Last trip

Not too far from home but in an area of Chicago I am not familiar with. Always use the Garmin in these situations and have been served very well. Love my Garmin gps.



off to the city once more

Back to the mountains!

Seems I'm always heading up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, this time, it was the first snow of the season, and I wanted to introduce the new car to it.

Chattanooga Visit from Florida

NUVI 2460LMT worked very well with waypoints programmed for Chattanooga using Basecamp. Traffic issues were reported as appropriate.

I-75 in Atlanta was not fun but GPS helped greatly.

Avoiding Traffic

Exit expressway for traffic jams then head in the general direction I want to travel. The GPS gets me to the destination.

Back home.

Back home.


Adjusting to the time change and driving home in the dark. All good, though a little more dicey than usual in the dark with rain.

a mini vacation

Took a little jaunt of 415 miles to Destin/Ft. Walton Beach area of Flor-I-duh to spend a few days with friends visiting from Arizona.
Great beaches and really enjoyed visiting the USAF Armament museum at Eglin, AFB and getting a close up view of planes from WWII area like the B-25 & B-17 all the way thru to the F-15, A-10, F-16 and the SR-71. Another highlight was getting introduced to the Donut Hole restaurants for breakfast ! 6 hour drive each way but very easy drive mostly on I-10.
Enjoyed the time with our friends !

San Diego. Safari Park is a must see.


Short trip to Gettysburg Pa

Failure of GPS

We were headed west in August. Were looking for market area in Kansas City. Garmin took us on a real tour. A few days later we bought a Rand McNally. We were driving a 42 ft motorhome, so it wasn't funny. That is only one fun incident on this two month trip from Ottawa Canada to Pahrump NV and back through Wildwood FL

No Where Special

No Where Special... have a good weekend.

Back in country...

and ready to travel some more.

Just ordered a new (to me) Garmin nüvi 2555LMT in one of those pre-Black Friday sales. It was cheaper to order the 2555 than upgrade maps on the old 260. Looking forward to the lifetime maps too. Plan to give the new unit quite a workout next week and over the Holidays smile

Great news phranc

Wishing you a quick recovery along with you getting back onto your bus route soon smile
