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

Colorado

My last trip was from Houston TX to Colorado for a short five day road trip.

I was in such a rush that I forgot to pack the Garmin and didn't realize it till I was picking up my rental car.

Ended up doing the trip with Waze on my cell phone but needless to say I missed the Garmin especially when I was up in the mountains and didn't have a signal.

I won't make that mistake again.

Texas

exploring Port Arthur to Houston for the moment..

Yet another VC visit--

Yet another vulture (venture) capital visit for our startup venture, but this one might be good news -- they got it and we spent time talking about what we need.

Time will tell, but I'm optimistic.

And my Nuvi didn't help -- they're in an industrial park that didn't exist a few months ago, so the address isn't recognized!

It did help me get home though.

Just finished a 3000 mile trip

My annual fall drive to Mexico. Visited friends in Wichita and from there ran into the leftover heavy rains from Mexico from Dallas to San Antonio. Fortunately I took the toll roads bypassing all and did not get stuck on I-35 and its flooded roads.
Now happily in Mexico at just under 90deg sunshine.

Unfortunately traffic is so bad that all the GPS can do is let me know that it will take as much as 3 hours to go 50 miles!

I've never gone riding there, but I've been up that way many times, it's really beautiful country.

Very beautiful. Can't wait to go back. As long as it's not snowing.

Thanksgiving

Heading from California to Florida for Thanksgiving. Will use the nüvi 760 to get around in Florida and the GPSMAP78s to find a few geocaches while there.

The bad part is the flights to and from Florida - I do NOT fit in those seats! The good part is family for Thanksgiving and 11 days in a row off work. grin
