nüvi

A gift I going to give to a particular someone (who, fortunately for me does not have internet at this time so that person won't read this) is a new Garmin nüvi 250.

Yes, I not only use but also give the gift of GPS. I'm good like that. 🙂

In a conversation with Pop earlier today we spoke about GPS. He mentioned someone who came to visit him recently had a really hard time finding his house. It's not that Pop's house is difficult to find, it's that the guy hadn't been in the area before. When he finally got there, Pop mentioned GPS to him and he replied Yeah, I've got to get me one o' those things.

My response: Duh.

Sometimes I think about what place in the north GPS would serve me best. Why? Because FL driving is easy. New England driving on the other hand is a challenge.

Were I still up there, I would value GPS most in Rhode Island; I say that without any hesitation whatsoever. It boggles my mind how EASY it is to get lost in the smallest state in the union.

In my pre-GPS days, if I was trying to get back home and was diverted off Route 6 or 44 for whatever reason, I was doomed. Totally.. eff'ing.. doomed. I'd drive in circles for forty-five minutes trying to just find a Massachusetts or Connecticut border.

Doomed, I say.

What the frig is "Blackstone Valley?" I don't WANT to be here. I want to go.. HOME!

I honestly believe this is the reason Rhode Islanders never go anywhere. Why? Because even they get lost in their own state.

You know it's true. 🙂

You never get lost going anywhere. That always goes smoothly. It's going back that you enter the medusa of roads that sucks away your gas and drives you (pun intended) insane.

As I wrote about before, sometimes I want to visit there just to sit nice'n'smug in the driver's seat while driving around knowing I won't get lost now with my GPS at the ready.

The visit will most likely happen next September when I go on my leaf-peeper trip.. assuming Kat is still living in CT at that time. 🙂
