I’m halfway through my work week. Soon I won’t have any workweeks, or else I will be working 7 days a week, every week! I have enough coming up in my future to keep me pretty busy.
Two days ago I ordered an update for the Garmin and paid with a credit card. I just informed Garmin that they can cancel my order and that I will not pay the charge. Their instructions aren’t adequate and I haven’t been able to download whatever it is I need. I even asked Mary to come over and help me – computer technology is her field – and the two of us were unable to get the update downloaded and installed. I can get by with 2008 maps, but if absolutely necessary it would be easier to just buy a new unit. Come to think of it, I’ve made WAY MORE cross country trips without a GPS than I’ve made with one. I have gotten used to relying on a GPS, but I can certainly do without it.
I would like to hear of readers’ experiences traveling around Atlanta. I would be approaching Atlanta from the south on I-75 and would then take 285 West and then North to intersect with I-20 West. I’m concerned about traffic on 285, and wonder if there is a time of day when driving on it, much less pulling a 5th wheel, would be the most foolhardy thing I could do. Is there any time of day when traffic should be relatively light? I haven’t made up my mind yet about it and would love to hear from someone who knows more about it than I do.
