Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – May 2016

 

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.

MD or VA along the Potomac. Not the one in Montana even though it is in some beautiful scenery.

MD Side

It's a pleasant ^ back roads drive from home.

The foot of grass from all the rain will have to await a dry day next week!

I preferred looking at the falls from the VA side. It was quite a bit further to get there from Germantown, but the view was better IMO.

Back home again

After 5 days of solid driving I'm glad to park my butt and watch the ball game.

Detour

I used it recently to avoid a closure due to construction. I was going to have to detour through a residential neighborhood and though I had a general sense of the direction to go, knowing exactly which turns to make and where was going to be problematic trying to do it by guessing. I would have made it without the GPS but it was able to help me navigate the most efficient way through all the streets to the connector I needed to get on the main highway.

A couple of years ago I took it south to north. Not easy to find overnight motels. About 4pm I decided I better find something. Garmin told me there was a Super 8 about 6 miles west. So off I go and when I get to that "location", there was NOTHING there, not even an old rotting away motel, nothin, nada!!!
Good luck.

There isn't much along much of the parkway - I've driven most of it from Roanoke south so far. Around some of the larger cities, like Asheville, you can find places not too far off. And I did spend one memorable night in a small motel just off the parkway in Meadows of Dan, VA - I had hit a deer, and the tow truck guy dropped me there. He did end up driving me 3 hours back to Charlotte the next day, since it was Sunday and I couldn't get a rental.

Do check first. The Parkway is closed between it's crossing at US 460 near Roanoke, north to near the Peaks of Otter for paving of the route. There are prominent signs direction you to 460, East to Rte 43 in Bedford back to the Parkway.

Totally closed for a month or so, then lane closures to finish. http://www.wdbj7.com/content/news/Part-of-Blue-Ridge-Parkway...
