I am preparing to leave Lamont, FL and should arrive at the Sleep Inn about 10AM. My GPS got me lost in the FL boonies yesterday. Took me 4 hours to make what it said was 14 miles. At least I have experience now on navigating the unpaved roads of Florida.

That's what you get for setting your GPS to avoid major highways. shakehands GPS's need a "street bike friendly back roads" setting. :cry:

Visited Wogs shop for a lesson in CNC machining this morning and then a wonderful lunch at a greek restaurant. This has been a great experience. Headed home tomorrow AM. Couldn't take pictures as my phone is gasping its last breath.
Thanks Wog for a great time!
