Travelling on I-77 on Columbus Day

We are looking at a trip to Savannah and would expect to be driving along I-90 and I-77 on Columbus Day.

This will take us through Pennsylvania and West Virginia, that day. This is the Canadian Thanksgiving, so we have an idea what to expect in Canada. Unfortunately we have no idea if this is considered an extra busy travel day for our American friends in this part of the country.


Who says that classical music is boring?

Weird(POI Extra)

Had something very unusually happen this morning, I use POI Extra to manipulate files, I went to use it, well Norton Internet security decided it was behaving unusually, and removed it from my PC, this is not the first time I used it, but the first time Norton IS, actually SONAR decided to remove it, didn't ask if that is what I wanted it to do just did it.

Just introducing

Hello everyone! I'm brand new to the site, and new to the world of downloading POI's to my GPS so I just wanted to say hi!
