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

Sam's Club

Only used my 3597 to go to Sam's Club in Newport News. Have to monitor traffic thru the 13 miles of Jersey walls in the I64 construction zone. 5 or 6 mile backups are not uncommon when there is an accident.

A relaxed weekend - went to

A relaxed weekend - went to see the in-laws as my wife's aunt/uncle were in town from California.

Pa to knoxville

Long trip....took 2 days for almost 700 miles. Lane guidance helpful... traffic could have been better but combined with passenger following on pa511 and Google worked great. Only major slowdown several tractor trailer accidents on I 40 east on way home.

Yosemite camping last week

Lots of water in river and falls, and weather was not hot. Mariposa fire created haze in the valley.

Travel

Still traveling through Canada. We are half way through week 6. Been to Alaska and now on our way back toward home in northern California. Had a motel room last night (which is why I'm online this morning) but actually sleep better in our little teardrop trailer. Have seen soooooooooo many things on this trip. It's amazing. Of course my trusty 760 always tells me where to go and, wonderfully, automagically gives me the speed limits in mph so I don't have to squint at the tiny little kph numbers on my speedometer dial. grin

Not My Last

trip, but one I contemplated. I live in Virginia. My cousin's child lives near Eugene Oregon. He's having a family and friends BBQ day the 29th. I have from now till the 1st of August free, and I contemplated going.

3000 miles each way. 3 1/2 days each way. For a one day picnic. Nah! I thing I'll pass this time. I'm getting too old for this. sad

Had plans to be in Crescent City after Sacramento on that same day, but had to cut 4 week western states trip short and return to SoCal, due to wife's illness. GPS worked flawlessly, used POIs to find favorite places to eat and rest stops. So valuable!

I'm 7 days into a 17 day, 3000 mile road trip. GPS has been simply wonderful, as usual. Just love my custom saved routes that have all my fuel stops and overnight stays built in.

Used the Nuvi to...

find the address of the person selling me a trailer for our motorcycles. Now all I have to do is make them fit smile Wanted something light enough to tow with a smaller truck yet be enclosed to protect the bikes. Everything is a trade off!
