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

Wait a minute... who am I here?

Tried a new restaurant....

...my wife & I's latest hobby is trying restaurants that have been around for years that we've never tried... so far, we've found a few that are absolutely great! We keep having to force ourselves not to go back to some of them until we've tried the others in the area to compare...

Yesterday was no exception- a place in New Smyrna Beach that we've driven past for fifteen years and never tried was jaw-droppingly good....and we've eaten at the place across the highway for years, and this one blew it away, and it was cheaper!

Get out there and try it yourself.... it will help you local economy, and you may find some hidden gems that you will surprise you.

Enjoy smile

Last Trip of May

Headed north on 89 from Flagstaff to Page, I got routed over 89T for some reason. I let it do it since I hadn't been that way before, and enjoyed it, but wonder why I was routed that way instead of just staying on 89.

what was the name of the place ?

...of your mind.

Hey Mr Ken......

MrKenFL; The name of the place was PJ's Sea Shack (Across from Norwood's). If you are familiar with New Smyrna Beach, it's right across the "Arched" bridge on 44 after you cross the Intercoastal (on the right after the curve).

We've eaten at Norwoods many many times, and never even considered trying it, but we were pleasantly surprised. It has a "fish camp" atmosphere, but the food was absolutely outstanding.

BTW The Grill at the Riverview Hotel was another one we tried recently, (on the beach-side of the Pink Drawbridge heading into Old New Smyrna Beach). The view and food was great, but much more up-scale and expensive than most of the places we like to go.....still a very nice place. I don't mind paying a few bucks more for good food, and it was worth it.

There's also a brand new place right in the middle of downtown New Smyrna that we want to try next ...I think it's called the Corkscrew Bar & Grill... it looked interesting - pretty large place that takes up most of the block on the north side of Canal street.

We have our favorites, but we are always looking for something new....smile

No Immediate Trips Planned

Except for heading to central and then northern Wisconsin.

And now, back to your regularly scheduled forum - already in progress . . .

Last trip

Just returned home after 45 days traveling. Spent time in GA,NC,TN,VA,SC and of course in FL where we live. Used my gps to verify a number of locations as I traveled.

Just Returned

From a trip to Atlanta, GA and back. Garmin worked flawlessly. ETA of 11 hour trip was off by 3 minutes, subtracting from a gas stop. Only "glitch" is that return trip routed me through Washington DC instead of around it. I went around it, of course.

Other than creating an avoid zone, it' hard to get most GPS to take I495 instead of I395 and getting dumped out in Downtown DC.

June is here and had a good ride with friends last week - Got a chance to ride to the Red River and visit the dam that forms Lake Texoma - Lot's of bikes on the road and lots of folks checking out the spillway and the flood control gates. Amazing what mother nature can do with so much water.

Skamania Lodge

We went to Skamania Lodge for Sunday brunch. Toyota Entune couldn't find it in its database or through Bing (which can't find *anything* anymore), so I entered the address by voice. Built-in is good enough, but still not great.

Zumo Unscheduled Ruggedness Test

I was on my Harley with the zumo 665 running some local chores, stores, etc. About 100 feet from home I opened the windshield bag to hit the garage door opener and for the first time the bag's flap hit the button to release the zumo from its cradle. Down the road it hit and went sliding. I road back and picked it up. Dinged, scratched and scrapped but it fired right back up when I put it in the cradle.

No more tests are scheduled at this time. rolleyes

P.S. It slides better than a hockey puck on pavement!

Vacation Planning Season

I'm planning a trip to Elizabethtown,PA to visit my Dad and brother. Looking for ideas to do with Dad, who's in his 90's and not quite so spry anymore. I'm hoping some of the POI files here will help (offbeat tourist attractions, factory tours, etc) or even some scenic drives. Thanks to those who have contributed.

Detroit to Alabama

I had a week of driving and I had found out, when you install POI`s put wave files for the warnings. I did go without the warnings,but would have been better if I had them.

Last trip was to the

Last trip was to the Highland Games in the Milwaukee area. A fun time, and the GPS took me right there with no problems.

YUM!

Re: Tried a new restaurant....

I like this...what a great idea. We always take long summer trips in our RV and have been hitting some of the Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. Even on travel we tend to gravitate to the tried and true eateries. We're gonna give this a try!

Thanks for reboot!
