Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – April 2015


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.

#1 Cheeseburger with a large diet coke... The best...

Of course I have it cut in half and my husband and I share it. We can not finish one by our self....

I am a hamburger person. I go for a hamburger in just about any restaurant I go to... if they offer one ... so I know what a good one is and "Giant Burger in Rhome, Texas is probably my favorite in the area, although Tommy's on Camp Bowie, in Fort Worth is close.

We prefer Kincad's when in Ft Worth. Behind the Hulen mall. grin

Does it count if I was a passenger and we really had no need for a GPS? How about if we followed the GPS for one turn that we probably should not have taken?

last day

Tomorrow is last day of work,packing on Saturday and then driving to Vancouver Island.Will see how close the GPS maps are to being correct.

DSM to Los Vegas to San Tan Valley and DSM

Went to Las Vegas for a family wedding. Had made a tourguide of historical markers along the route and learned many things about what and what not to do. Then we drove down to San Tan Valley AZ to visit our daughter and then drove home.
When we left it was 55 degrees and west of Denver it was a severe snow storm down to 23 degrees and Vegas it was 79 degrees. San Tan Valley it was in the 80's. We arrived at home to a cool house for we had turned off the furnace and water heater.
Our only disappointment was when we took a detour to visit Pie Town New Mexico for lunch. My wife could not finish her sandwich and my scrambled eggs came out half raw. The cook wore an apron that had not seen a washing machine in many a day.
We had also bought a pie to go (we had bought two pies before from the store across the street which was closed, Pioneer Cafe) which was good, but we had to make a pit stop down the road and when we got home the pie was not worth 1 third the the money we paid for it.


My last trip was an attempt at avoiding a new road closure for the ongoing construction projects that have blocked off all major routes South from my neighborhood.

The GPS reroute told me to turn right at the traffic light. There was a lawn there.
It took a moment for me to remember that there was once a road there, but they eliminated it a few years back. Still on the maps though. Oops.

Getting ready to head to

Getting ready to head to Florida. Visits in Orange Park and Winterhaven. Looks like I'll be bringing rain with me.
