Off the beaten path = cool for me


While playing with my Zumo this past week/weekend, I encountered some heavy traffic ~5-10 mph. I reached up, hit the detour option, and found us an alternate route.

We headed back to the interstate a few miles down the road, and it was still backed up. Another detour, another adventure. 5 miles down the road and about a mile before my next turn, I see a store that caught my eyes.

Rather than push another website on everybody, let's just say it was a motorcycle clothing/accessory store, and would you believe at 4:30 pm on a Sunday, it was still open? Couldn't pass an opportunity like that up, so we pulled in and I shopped for a quick 5 minutes, bought a nice pair of chaps (something previously lacking from my cold weather riding wardrobe) and we were back on the road.

Yeah, I've been doing the

Yeah, I've been doing the same thing.

It's fun to hit detour, even if I'm sceptical of the traffic information or route. I always end up going through neighborhoods and areas that I never would have seen before, much less know how to get through quickly.

I've been findig all sorts of cool areas around San Diego, and I've been living and driving here for 16yrs.
