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.

Atlantic City

Not the same place. Many casinos are boarded up. Famous Poker room at Taj is gone. Wonder if it will ever recover.

Almost no trips--

Well, we went up North to see our daughter graduate from college over the weekend, a 6+ hour drive each way. Her brother goes up this weekend with the utility van to haul her and her furniture back home.

But no work trips this week -- good news and bad. The no driving is the good news, but the bad news is that it's because one of my colleagues is still in the hospital after having his appendix removed late Friday night (not on his list of things to do, but his appendix insisted).

I sent along my best wishes -- at least surgery was laparoscopic, so his career as a swimsuit model isn't affected... And if you know the gent in question, this is a mental image that makes you want to wash your mind out with soap... I was chided for making him laugh, which hurts.

We wish him a speedy recovery!

Still stuck in Atlanta. A

Still stuck in Atlanta.

A four-minute drive (as calculated by nuvi) turned into a 40-minute drive because of very long lights, and green lights you can't drive through because the traffic ahead of you isn't moving.

And I thought Denver traffic was bad.

Back to Tennessee

Tennessee is going to be our new home state and we just made our third trip since February, Not sure I need the GP to get here anymore but it is still nice to check if we are where we need to be to get where we need to be by the time we run out of steam. It came in handy this trip when I blew a tire on the trailer I was towing and after putting a spare on needed to find a tire store that had two in my size before I traveled to much further and we had to wander a bit off our path to find a big enough store that had what we needed.

Getting rid of a racoon

I unfortunatly believed the newspaper about it being dry today so I set up my animal trap in the back yard. This morning I had one wet Racoon in the trap for it was raining and it had moved the cage off the plywood and dug enough dirt under the cage to make it one muddy place. This is my 47th racoon (I have also in the last two years caught 27 opposums, 2 rabbits, and 2 stray cats) in my back yard.
My problem was how to get rid of it and not get my car dirty. I first went down the basement and found a 7 foot long plastic table cloth I had used on my folding tables. I then took a cover for a 32 gallon storage bin and placed it on the plastic. Then I took several lids from my storage boxes and once I put the cage on the lid I placed the covers along side and drew the plastic table cloth over so as to wrap the cage.
Lucky me for when I unloaded the cage, the insides of the plastic and box covers were wet from when the racoon had shaken the water and mud off.
The funny part was when I returned home and had taken the cage out and after returning back to the car, I startled a squirrel who was looking into the back of the car as if it was wanting a trip or wondering if I was returning its friends

Stayed home this weekend....

didn't want to face the traffic on the highways. Nuvi will get a workout this week around town,.

Nowhere yet this year.

And I'm expecting the traffic to be on its best behavior now...

I've got some well irrigated farmland in south central Florida I can let you have fairly cheaply. It's even got a lake view!

Dusting off Garmin...

... for trip to Northern California this week. (Plan to drive at least 1,000 miles while out there.)

The Mississippi Gulf Coast

It was sad to see the devastation by Katrina. The casinos were busy and certainly a boost to the local economy. We ate at Mary Mahoney's for another fantastic meal.

Sorry to hear that

TN to Western NY - Via Ohio

Interesting trip back from Eastern TN. Was using traffic and it showed a parking lot in Cincinnati and directed me to a exit I was 4 lanes over in nearly stopped traffic so I kept going worki ng my way over and it had me get off on a side street. We kept moving but on all kinds of side streets and out the top of the mega town suburbs. We added about 30 minutes to the last 2 hours of the trip, not sure what the parking lot would have added.
