About a month ago we had a little “accident”…Louise accidentally spilled some water onto and into our GPS. Well, we found out that GPS systems and water just don’t mix and if we wanted to send it to the factory they would try to fix it for us at a base price of $199 plus $17 shipping and handling. Monday we decided to drive down into Albuquerque to do a little shopping at Costco (who in the world goes to Costco and does a LITTLE SHOPPING???) Anyway, we found a new GPS system and yesterday we drove the Turquoise Trail (62 miles) to try it out. There was a little set-up work that was required to get the GPS system to follow the directions the way I would prefer, so I set it to avoid “Toll Roads” and besides that, they don’t have any around here. As our car pulled away from the coach, directions started to flow freely from our new system. I dutifully followed every turn and only questioned it once…when this road that we were traveling on (which definitely wasn’t even close to a toll road) all of a sudden narrowed down to a single lane and then became a dirt track… Well we could have turned around and driven back the 10 or 12 miles that we had driven, but we could also keep following our “GPS”. Thankfully Louise had fixed a lunch to take with us, so I knew that we wouldn’t starve no matter how far off the track our new system took us. Fortunately, this little dirt track did take us on a little short-cut and we finally found our way to The Turquoise Trail. Our first stop on Rte 14 was at Madrid.
