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

This thread will be closed on the last day of the month and a new one will be opened.

N.E. Ohio, Garmin 2598 TomTom One XL

spring and summer officially cancelled

evil Spring and summer are are officially cancelled here on the east coast of Canada. With another 4" of snow last night bringing the total to over 5' total so far this season, not enough days left to melt it all, freezing rain on the way later on in the day changing to, you guested it, snow. This is NB Can,I think NL Can has give up and sank back into the ocean.

GPS Luggage Tracker

Anyone have experience with the new GPS or cellular location based luggage tracking devices? I’m not sure how helpful they would be in actually recovering lost luggage but at least you would know the location of your bag.

The Trakdot product is well reviewed on Amazon:

Good Wx for a drive

Spring is springing. Time to reload the Garmin with the latest maps.

Springing Forward to Daylight Saving Time

If you don't have atomic /radio controlled clocks remember to set your clocks an hour forward tonight before going to bed.

Replacing the batteries in your smoke & carbon monoxide detectors should also be a must for everyone smile
