Lemme see if I've got this straight- if I want to get Home I take the Country Road, America is found somewhere off the Ventura Highway, and The Long and Winding Road eventually leads to your door. Got it. The wife says to remember to stop and pick up some Cream at the Crossroads.

Re: you think Garmin can take these directions?

Although I've traveled the world and elsewhere my home is wherever the missus is. It seems this wayward topic is going off the rails on a Crazy Train. I wish a GPS could lead me to easy street. Heck, the blasted thing can't even tell me how to get... how to get to Sesame Street. So there ya go. All the way from Ozzy to Frank Oz.

Re: you think Garmin can take these directions?

although I have been fighting a Social Media war with Garmin for some time regarding their bluetooth problems.

I have never had the Garmin lead me too far off my path.

One thing I noticed when I did put in a bunch of way points is that if you do not get REAL close to the waypoint she wants to bring you back there .

the GPS in my car will skip the point once I am close enough or ask em if I want to skip it..

Oh well , back to Crazy Town on the Soul Train!

Re: you think Garmin can take these directions?

Oh hell guys, New Zealand, Australia...what's the difference. Both are just tiny little islands used to house criminals at the bottom of the world, so does it really matter?


and if that don't get 'em started, I got more

Re: you think Garmin can take these directions?

So, Paul, are you a guard or prisoner down under in your little island jail?
But seriously, I do admire your little country. I pride myself on doing some research (Quigley Down Under and all the Crocodile Dundee movies), and think you have a fairly progressive civil society down there.
Oh, almost forgot, what's you pet wallaby's name?

My My you are challenged. Australian land mass is actually bigger than the Old USA.
Hollywood welcomes almost anyone these days I see. How are the bears in the woods these days my friend?
Progressive... we are as challenged as your neck of the woods mate... politicians gone nuts... media rich.. information poor... and almost as fat as North Americans. Some of you guys actually ride bikes.. but not very fast it seems on Moto1.

I went to university in upper New York State( Itacha) and loved it. But that was a long while ago. Good thing about American women is they have always loved a foreigner. Must be the charm and Charisma we have.
Have a nice day and go out and ride since you only make it for 8 months of the year

best regards
Paul

Re: you think Garmin can take these directions?

Look, just between you and me (don't tell anyone else), I was in Australia once, years ago. It's the only place I've ever been that I truly want to go back to. I loved the country and the people. It was one of my very best experiences in life to date.
But keep that to yourself for now, K?

I wont tell anyone if you don't. we want to keep this vast land for less than 23 million citizens. I find the rioads run faster that way.

Must say having been to university in the states I love a whole slab of your country and the people. ( thats the important part)
best regards
