See you there. I'm punching it the GPS and riding by there today so I'll have a trial run to rely on.

That's how I feel when dinner is in MS.

Good thing I put in in and attempted to ride the route:

N on Houston Levee
W on Walnut Grove
N on Rocky Point
E on Macon...Pass Blake Road and there it....ISN'T.

Damn that Garmin GPS! All this time I thought it was me...and maybe it is...

I'm doing the update again and maybe that will resolve the problems. If not I'll call a tech guy. I'll put it in my iPhone and drive over there so at least I will have been there once.

Put it in the iPhone and looks like the GPS should have routed my further West on Macon rather than back East. I'm doing an update on the GPS and hopefully that will cure the issue...unless ofcourse I did punch it in wrong...

If you can't find it tomorrow night and ride past a place with a couple of bikes outside, you're there. stop. come in.

Well...This is an embarrassing admission: I put 8856 in the address instead of 8556 Macon Road. On the bright side my GPS is loaded with the most current Garmin map. The mileage shown to the destination now agrees with Google maps and the iPhone. I'm encouraged and believe I can find it and be there on time...or a little before just to make certain I don't get lost.

Good food and good company at the Fontana

I really enjoyed last night. Good food, good company, and good weather in the outdoor setting.

Probably be gone a week or more, no set schedule.
The third guy that was riding with us is now out of commission due to hitting yet a fourth deer on his way home last night. Guess the TWAT is postponed indefinitely now.
