Hillbilly Willie lost in Boston

Willie and Mrs. really decided to take a vacation.   the decision was made to go to Massachusetts, Maine, new Hampshire, and Vermont. This sounded like a great vacation and it really has been. There have only been a few small glitches in the vacation plans.

Everything went well as long as Mrs. Willy navigated  and Willie drove.  then came the day when Willie navigated and Mrs willie drove . We were using the Garmin on the phone for navigational purposes along with a map. We were going through Vermont to see some covered bridges. Willie said let's trust the Garmin. It lead us 20 miles out of the way and onto a small dirt road. Frustration was setting in and Miz Willie was getting aggravated. The straw that broke the camel's back was when the dirt road became washed out and so narrow that we could not proceed forward. Ms Willie had to back the car up almost a quarter of a mile. As we were backing out there was a car from New York State that was waiting for us to move out of the way so that they could go down the same road. We watched them and when they got to the same place that we were at they stopped. Garmin was leading them astray also.

This was the worst that we were lost while on our trip. We are on the last day of the trip and Willy is blogging. The next worst thing was getting in the tunnels of the subway train in Boston and not figuring out how to go where. But that is a different story for another time.

Willie is using his phone and talking into it to dictate this blog and the voice recognition does not always understand what Willie says.  Willie is trying to make corrections but if something is unreadable just racket up to the fact that willie is a hillbilly lost in Boston.

Yep you can't rely on just one form of navigation. We found that out quickly while boating and now rely on two and sometimes more.

I would think that if someone saw someone backing out of a dirt road you'd figure that it wasn't the way to go. Well they were from New York.

Have a terrific day Willy. My best to Mrs. Willy. :)
