middle-o-nowhere wisconsin

A long lonely road, and bitterly cold. The tour continues.

No Michigan pasties today. Lunch was Mexican with a quick look in a Wal-Mart for Flipper – season 1 on DVD. No luck.

    In Britain we had snow at the beginning and the end of 2010. We don't cope with sudden snowfalls very well and the country almost came to a halt. It's okay to walk to work in to begin with but when it melts during the day, freezes into ice at night and then some fresh snow falls again in the morning it tends to get a little slippery.

    It's interesting and full of fun~:)

    I know, I know. That was hardly Earth shattering news that the British like to moan. My computer hard drive is littered with strongly worded letters that I have sent over the years!:D

    I wish I could tell ya. The coworker who was driving had a GPS, and when those are running, you don't know where you're going or where you've been. You just wait for it to say sumpin.I still print maps from the company laptop when I drive.I mainly read news using Opera Mini as he fumbled a lot with a stack of CD's. His music was tolerable.

  10. Hey, it looks like you're going through North Dakota! That's exactly what it looks like for miles and miles. I'll never use a GPS. My daughter says she's going to get me one so I won't get lost. In Fargo? I've never gotten lost and have learned my way around very well…..even better than my SIL's father who's lived in ND all his life. Fargo is too big for him as he's lived in tiny towns all his life. Printing out maps is just fine for me too.There was a lady in one of my art classes who had some type of sensor thing on her very expensive car. It told her it was safe to back out of a slot in a store parking lot. She backed out without looking because she trusted this sensor. Guess what, she hit a car that the sensor didn't pick up. Who backs out of a parking slot without looking?

  11. I think you're going to be ok in ND without a GPS. Sometimes I find them fun and useful, but many times I view them as just another gadget that cramps my style. I have enough stuff to lug around already.My mom's car has those sensors. They warn if a collision is immediate, like slowly backing into a pole. I find them and the truck-mounted camera impressive for what they do, but as we know, they won't do much about an approaching car or backing up quickly.I just thought of another place that's easy without a GPS: Phoenix! I remember when I moved there, a friend unfurled a map, spent a few minutes showing me the system, and I was able to find places on my own from the get-go.
