Keeping The Windmill Alive - Your Last Trip? – May 2017

 

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.

Delivery

Had to make a delivery for work.

Florida Panhandle

Had to drive up to the Florida Panhandle for a saltwater fishing column I'm working on. I haven't been up that way in a good 20 years and my Garmin Nuvi loaded with all my custom POI Factory files came in very handy.

Thanks for everyone's work over the years!

Dallas

Took a multi-hour trip, twice, deep into Dallas this weekend. First trip was super. Second seemed I was fighting the GPS over which way to go, even though I was going to/from the same place - odd.

ANOTHER POST FOR MY WINDMILL

stayed home

trimmed (with a chainsaw) more shrubs over the weekend

Heading to San Antonio later this week for a day trip, though.

LAST TRIP

North Carolina

Returning home

Didn't make the 12th. Arrived back home this morning, the 15th.

Just got back from Florida

My 3597 worked flawlessly throughout the + - 4000 mile round trip smile

I must say though that northbound on I-81 in the state of Pennsylvania there's alot of construction going on but also a countless number of potholes !

It was raining & dark when I took exit # 219 to fill up at Flying J/ Pilot gas station & thankfully wasn't going fast and went through a humongous pothole that couldn't be seen. I thought for a second that I was driving in a 3rd world country evil

The bordering states (Maryland & New York) are in good shape therefore it's certainly not the weather the problem......

Car Show in Weatherford

Having to stay close to home for now to make sure things are still in one piece around here.

We went to a car show last Saturday and came home to an open ice box. All the ice and ice cram was melted.

The grandkids that are staying with us for a while (hopefully not much longer) don't know how to close an ice box door..

(Well I call it an Ice Box, but I know it is a refrigerator).

I haven't heard that expression in a long time, but clearly remember when I was a kid on the farm and most folks referred to their new-fangled Frigidares as ice boxes. Heck I even remember us having the real ice box in our cellar, although my Mom used it only to store Mason jars for canning. Some of our farm neighbors still had their ice boxes in use though and the ice truck would deliver blocks of ice to them a couple of times a week.

My grand parents had an ice box when I was young. It was neat. Don't know why but I have always called a refrigerator an ice box. My grand kids correct me a lot about things like that. They also love for me to explained what I am talking about when they correct me,

Tahoe, Truckee River Levels

All the snow from the record winter storms has resulted in a record melt off. The rivers are at max capacity and expected to reach flood levels this week. If you have travel plans in the Tahoe/Reno area be sure to check with the authorities to insure that the roads are open.
