Thank goodness for rainy days. It has taken me most of the weekend plan 32 Waypoints and create 24 Routes using MapSource. I then uploaded these to Garmin. The beauty of such planning is that – I have a plan! Everyday we just get up, select the day's route and off we go. If we deviate from the route, Garmin just recalculates.
This exercise was not just plugging in towns along the way, but also looking at where I want to go, what we want to see and look for interesting routes to get there. I don’t feel over planned. I feel prepared. The last thing I want to do is have 5 weeks in front of me and no plan. I find this type of work comforting.
Lisa came over to thank me for doing all the planning. She was grateful that she was not responsible for this! Enjoy the free ride for now honey!
