    Default Hiram's Believe it or not... (GARMINS RULE!)

    So to start the story off, I bought a new GPS (Garmin 76cs) a few weeks ago (The same day as the WWWWWWWWWW3 event) Well, it just so happens that the same day I lost my trusty old GPS72 (a sad day) Well, since I lost it we have had quite a bit of snow, The parking lot in front of my apartment has been plowed about 3 or 4 times now. And as I was coming home from the store today I saw a familiar chunk of plastic in the snow, so I chipped away at the ice and lo and behold there was my GPS!!! I was quite sad, how could my GPS that has been out in the elements for that long (and being plowed over and over again) still work!?!!? So I brought it inside, stuck it in the sink to rinse off the ice and frozen mud, and I pushed the power button....




    I COULDN'T BELIEVE MY EYES! IT STILL WORKED!!!! (I didn't even hafta put new batteries in it!!)

    (I guess you could say the garmin is just like me! It takes a beating, it bears the scars, and it still works! (when the boss is around))

    So maybe your next investment should be a new camera that takes good pictures that you can see.....
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.

    That's a brand new camera! (I just haven't figured out how to use it yet) The old one got smooshed in my pocked when I went down the toboggan chute at the Nationals in Camden

    Once you figure out the camera send your photos to Garmin and they will probably post it on their site. This is quite a testimonial.

    after all this unit has been through, i think it should end up in a frame (but it wouldn't do me any good in a frame)

    Maybe the picture was and is clear to Hiram but we don't all wear beer goggles. You do know that the 76cs is discontinued. You should have spent the money on a csx. I have both...
    Slowly but surely

    Hiram must have gotten a deal on that 76cs, and probably plans to spend the savings on Guiness! LOL!

    But do you have a source for those "beer goggles"? Can I get them on eBay?

    During the classroom portion of our Drivers ed class we put beer googles on the kids and have them walk around the classroom. It's quit a hoot watching them navigate the class.

    The state has several pairs that you can use.

    Yes I did get a deal on it, $200 off at an LL Bean clearance.
    And yes my alcohol consumption was affected by this purchase... (I couldn't buy beer for a week!)
