A GPS Drive

What is a GPS Drive? Well, Jacky and I go somewhere that we would like to explore and then ask the GPS machine where the points of interest are. We select a good looking one from the list and have the lady who lives in the machine drive us to the interesting point.

This time we took some pictures of the area.. We aren't telling you where it is exactly. That would take the fun out of it.

But, we will tell you what the latitude and longitude is so you can put those coordinates into your GPS and let it take you on an adventure.

43 35 44 NORTH by
123 50 53 WEST

It is about a three hour drive and the scenery all the way there and back is magnificent. Just a hint the water you see was loaded with fish. We saw one guy get up and walk on their backs they were so thick.

Let us know if you visit it and what you saw.

Safe and Well List

Safe and Well List: "Providing Safe and Well Information

Welcome to the American Red Cross Safe and Well Website. If you have been affected by a disaster, this website provides a way for you to register yourself as “safe and well.” From a list of standard messages, you can select those that you want to communicate to your family members, letting them know of your well-being.

Concerned family and friends can search the list of those who have registered themselves as “safe and well.” The results of a successful search will display a loved one’s First Name, Last Name, an “As of Date”, and the “safe and well” messages selected."
