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

Which ones and where? I've checked out a few in the Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA. Pretty disappointing compared to Texas and Kansas City to say the least!

The ramen in Tukwila (Seattle area) was pretty good though.




Cycle Ride

May take my NUVI 50 for a ride today. Might need a new RAM mount for the bigger size.

Went to the U-Pick strawberry farm. We had a great time but I am glad I don't have to pick all day everyday.

More of the same, yet different...

More running around dealing with vulture capitalists.

Reinforcing an important lesson: GPS nav gives you directions. Most of the time, that GPS nav doesn't know traffic patterns. Google Maps is getting better at that.

Next up is our daughter's college graduation! The following week my son goes up with the big van to help haul her **** back home.

Harley Davidson MDA Ride for Life

Ran across the state last weekend for the event last weekend. The event raised over $1.1 million and we had a great time. The zumo 665 performed great as usual. We of course had to ride a different route back home.

The GPS failed somewhere in North Alabama. As back up we always have a good availability of paper maps. This proved to be crucial when we had to make some detours.

I had a real good day ...

At the local casino.

Keeping it alive.

My next trip

I am planning a trip south and found that on the way down I can visit the Unclaimed Baggage. For what I know, it is a point of stoppage you can not miss. I am exited to see what I can find there.
Here is the link for those who want to think about for the next time passing close by.

Have a good day

Mothers Day Trip

Just got back from a long weekend trip from Western NY to NW Ohio for Mother's Day, 850 miles round trip. The new 2689LMT, worked fine. Wasn't really needed for the trip except to keep track of how much longer till we got place, but had the opportunity to see how well the traffic worked.

Earlier this month took the first long trip to Door County Wisconsin, using our new Nuvi 2689

Worked beautiful, and coming from a 660, we're enjoying the new map features!!

A 2689LMT in both our cars that we love... and a Nuvi 660 with Lifetime Maps that we have had literally forever.... And a 2011 Ford Escape with Nav System that is totally ignored!



Wait a minute... who am I here?


spinning the windmill...

Cycle Ride

Got my new cradle for the Nuvi 50 and took it for a test ride. It is a pleasure looking at a 5" screen. My accessory plug has a fault and the Nuvi ran on the battery for 4 hours. Can't expect much more I guess.
