Headed West

Almost finished with packing for our summer trip out west. Leaving out on Sunday.
First stop, the Grand Canyon. Then going north to Banff, Canada (and points in between).
Will be traveling on Interstate 40 most of the way out west if anyone is moving in that direction.
Rig checks out good (knock on wood).

Safe travels this summer everyone.

Tom,

Be sure and honk as you go through the Greensboro area! If you spend the night in Albuquerque let me know and I'll give you the names of some good New Mexican restaurants that will open your sinuses up.

Safe travels,
Gary

Thanks Gary.
We are actually planning to stop there for two nights.
No set plans yet. Depends on how long I want to drive.

If you are going west of Banff to Lake Louise and have the time, take a tour up the Icefields Parkway (Hwy 93) to Jasper. It is 144 miles of absolutely gorgeous mountain scenery.

If you can get a walk up pass to walk to the bottom of the Grand canyon it is awesome. Just a short walk down the Bright Angle Trail is cool also. The first mile of the trail at the top is beautiful.

the South Kaibob trail is a ridge trail that offers 270 degree vistas.....the trip down south kaibob to cedar ridge is a rewarding day hike (3 mile round trip). Cedar ridge is a nice lunch point having great views and reasonably large and flat surface area to rest(as well as composting privy's). No water is available.

The road trip to hermits rest for morning hot chocolate is also good when you have need for relaxation and less hiking.....typically not crowded in the morning....usually the fire place is going.....

Don't know if my old knees could handle the hike.

The Bright Angel Trail is right in the main park. Rather easy walk to go down 1/2 mile or so. Pretty. I walked to the bottom on 2-1-14. Down one day stayed at ranch at bottom back out the next day.

One of the neatest things I ever done. I'm 65. 7 hours to get to bottom. Then 9.5 hours to get out the next day. One tired old man. Ha

If you buy it from camping world log into Good Sam Club website first and you can get a coupon for a free hard case. we use the case when we take the GPS in the toad with us. I'm sure it's cheaper on amazon though but we just happened to be in camping world and I don't like waiting on things..

What was the problem updating? Using Garmin Express the only problem I had was the time to download huge files on my slow DSL.

Interesting that you could get it from CW since all the advertise and show online is Rand McNally and Magellan.

Hi Tom,
Grand Canyon Railway Hotel and Campground, the hotel has an awesome buffett. Route 66 is 1 block over, Red Garter Inn (a former bordello in the 1800's) is a great little cafe. The owner loves to tell stories about the history of the building. About 10 miles down the road from Williams, Az is Planes of Fame aviation museum. They have a lot of military memoriabila and Planes on display. The owner of the museum was very nice.
Have a great trip!!

Thinks for the heads up.
We are planning on three days in the GC area so might be able to see some of the sights.

On my macbook pro... express would connect to the Garmin, but updating would reach to 80% and stopped there... just happy to have it working since we are only part timers.

Good to know. I wonder if because the files are so big that there is a computer memory or storage capacity limitation; I know it requires a lot of fre space.

I did it on an iMac. Next time I will try it on my MacBook Pro. And next time I think I will go somewhere like Atlanta Bread that has his speed WiFi. This morning I did a speedtest there and saw 20 Mbps download, over 20 times faster than what I see at home.
