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

South Lake Tahoe

was the destination. Did a good job in getting me there. Yes, I already knew the way. But I did have time schedules to view..

nuvi 1390 LT, nuvi 1450 LMT, Win 10

To the beach

Got stuck in traffic on the way back, but up in the Coast Range, there's no cell reception and no FM traffic service, so we didn't know until we were in it. By the time we got to the front of the slowdown (20 miles, 1.5 hours), whatever had happened had already been cleared.

From Saint Andrews, New brunswick to Sherbrooke, Quebec

I left Saint Andrews, New Brunswick and headed to Sherbrooke, Quebec today

A great trip through some very scenic country

Hospital Trip

My first trip over to the Cleveland Clinic to visit my daughter. The ole nuvi 1450 doesn't miss a beat. I do still have to copy over the large jcv from the zumo 665 or nuvi 765, the little one works but it's not as good.

Sherbrooke, QC to Perth, ON

A 450 km trip down some big highways to get to Perth

had a great dinner at Fiddleheads bar & grill in Perth last night

All Over the Place

Last weekend it was the Poconos for the NASCAR race, and this weekend it was a ride on on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The Moose Is Loose! nuvi 760


Happy Monday all.

You can walk a horse to water, but a pencil has to be led.

Mt. Shasta

Lovely place, except the smoke from all the fires covered the mountain....

Loved the Fish Hatchery. Best time I have had for $0.35 in years....

The Tropics

Just got back from Hawaii.


Was supposed to go on a 'ride' tomorrow but it looks like rain in Eastern Ontario. But...they've been wrong before.

If at first you don't succeed....redefine success

Just back from a whirlwind tour to New Brunswick

Just finished about 3000 km round trip to Saint Andrews, NB with my old Nuvi 255 strapped to the RoadGlide

it was a great ride, but had to cover the Nuvi with a baggy for the rain

For the first time in a while....

no trip this week.

From visiting relatives in Argyle, Tx. GPS worked great. But there is too much road construction in and around Ft. Worth. I didn't notice if traffic was working or not on the GPS. I was too busy keeping my eyes on the traffic. GPS got me from point A to point B with no problem.

3790LMT; 2595LMT; 3590LMT, 60LMTHD

Pearl Harbor to Wahiawa

Pearl Harbor to Wahiawa

Fulton, Il

Have stopped by this windmill several times bit it's never operational. Just never the same place since a volunteer died from a fall at the top of the cap in 2011.

went to New Braunfels to play at a waterpark

Got a little frustrated at Waze and its wacky routing for some straightforward driving. On the other hand, it has Google searches to find restaurants that are not in Garmin.

not much

on my dance card today...

Flashback Weekend

Rosemont, IL

Wait a minute... who am I here?

Emergency parts run--

Doing upgrades at a site and we discover some infrastructure problems. Sure, we can clean those up as well...

Some internet searches and a phone call or two later, I'm on my way to pick up parts, my trusty navigator leading the way!

Nuvi 2460, 680, DATUM Tymserve 2100, Trimble Thunderbolt, Ham radio, Macintosh, Linux, Windows

Western NY to Eastern TN

Made yet another trip from Jonesborough, TN to Williamson, NY to Jonesborough, TN. I think we are completely moved to TN now. My 2589 does a strange thing. Going up it took us on a route that got us on an interstate sooner but was 8 miles further, coming back it took the shorter route and got us off the interstate sooner. Oh well we made it.

Another Week

Use it whenever the engine is running.


"Internet: As Yogi Berra would say, "Don't believe 90% of what you read, and verify the other half."

Last Trip

Just came back from a wedding in Ann Arbor Michigan.
Had the 2597 all the time helped with some alternate routes due to construction and accidents almost ran out of gas but it helped me locate stations.

Updating the POIs...

and heading out of town for a couple of weeks. Bless the house sitter.

Meeting up with friends who just drove down the Alaska highway for their move from Alaska to Washington state. Good times!

Drove to

Mt Washington last weekend

Endless Mountains

North Central PA

"You can't get there from here"

Our Last Trip

10 days in the mountains of North Carolina and at the Farm in Apex, NC.

It isn't my last trip, but

It isn't my last trip, but my upcoming trip will be from the suburbs of NYC to Mineral Wells, TX and back!

Maps -> Wife -> Garmin 12XL -> StreetPilot 2610 -> Nuvi 660 (blown speaker) -> Nuvi 3790LMT

Ft. Worth construction...ugh!

I will be heading through there on my way to Mineral Wells, TX from the NYC area. I hope that it isn't like the NY/NJ/DC traffic that I am prone to experience. Nothing like being just hours from your destination after over 20 hours driving, only to sit there and wait.

On my way to my class

Going to the dive shop for an evening class, I checked my ETA to see how late I was running due to traffic. I still made it in plenty of time.

I also wanted to see if the map update reflected the recent construction completion. It hadn't.

nüvi 750 & 760

2597 is a good GPS!

Thankfully the car didn't get stuck in the mud this time.


last trip was to Chicago. gPS doesn't work well in Loop, though, and double-decker roadways like Wacker Drive are tricky to navigate via GPS.

Happy Monday
