Quick entry. If we miss commenting, we have a terrible connection here. We cannot load any videos, everything locks up. it takes 5 minutes at times to read an e-mail.
For those who asked. we are fine the bad weather missed us, but hurt a lot of folks in Mass.
(Sorry about the abbr. of Massachusetts the old one sticks! I imagine there are some who do not know many states had abbr. that were changed.)
Our friend Paula calls it ‘The lady in the box’ because of the verbal instructions that come out of it. Since I cannot hear the sound is turned off.
I mentioned the other day that I was using the GPS when we came into New York. Normally we will take the last exit in PA and go thru Port Jarvis, but the GPS suggested Exit 1 in New York. There was a lot of road construction and a little confusing in Pennsylvania so I opted to follow the lady in the box. The last instruction I followed was turn right on Maple St. as soon as I made the turn I saw a notice: TUNNEL.. NINE FOOT CLEARANCE. (of course the GPS does not know how tall we are) Thankfully there was a right turn into a residential area so I took it, and requested the navigator get us out of this mess. She did.
(I have this address from a long time back I hope it is still a good address)…Now if you have time, here is what happens when the clearance is too low:
Following the GPS once in Kentucky, I was directed down a farm path, but refused and called for assistance.
A couple years ago I made the mistake of following it and went thru the edge of NYC!
In Lenoir once, it sent me into a residential driveway. So usually I check my directions before starting a new trip. This time I did not check well enough….
Some of the errors are my fault, some the mapping system that calls for roads that never were completed.
The GPS is a good thing ‘MOST’ of the time, as with a lot of technology.
Have you ever been misdirected using your GPS.
Take advice with a grain of salt (what ever that means) even your GPS!
