I thought I was kidding about the parasails. Holy crosswinds, batman. Worse than the chop off of a semi.

Snapshot from the start of our ride. Look who's hanging his head with sadness that he couldn't come out to ride with us

Thanks to Chis for putting the ride together. It was great meeting a couple of inmates from south of the border. Next time I hope Mick can come out to play!

Heh. Oh yeah.

So we're zipping up Falls road, we're finally out from behind that student driver and getting to stretch our legs a bit. I crest this rise and make the face because it turns out that if you go far enough north on Falls it turns to dirt. I check with the riders, everybody's good with it, so we hit a couple miles of hard-pack. I popped my Connie's dirt cherry.

Is there a way I can do an update with a hammer? It would make me feel better. So after hours, following every circle of instructions, computer screen claims I'm done, updated, ready to go. Restart Zumo, no roads are on it that aren't highways. My "home" is a dot in the middle of nothingness! Try a route it starts by directing me to continue on I-695... WTF. I reconnect to my laptop and now it tells me I need to down load the map. I do, again but maybe for the first time. Let me skip ahead two hours. Disconnect, close battery door, Zumo doesn't start, at all. screen goes blank and then nothing. In frustration I threw it onto the sofa and went to bed.

This morning, after coffee, I pick it up press the on button and the little frakker comes on like it was taking a nap. No longer wanting to smash it but still not happy my brain couldn't decide if it needed to hear angry music or happy music.
All my saved address are there, points of interest, well it had suggestions...
I decided to split the difference


And if that wasn't good enough...



Thank you for reading along. I promise not to smash anything unless it really needs to be smashed!

I empathize Mickey, had the same problem with my Zumo. There have been a few times it almost ended up in a ditch or under one of the 18 wheels of a truck.
Great music choice....brightened my morning, thanks

Thank you Tom, I'm suddenly reminded of an episode of The Office where Michael Scott drives his Chrysler into a lake.
