At least you didn't have to worry about being overloaded once the concrete was off. :bigrofl:

I forgot to mention the 582 Cub Cadet I also, but I don't think it was for sell.

Its nice to look Pat but dont risk your job by stopping until you know its alright with your boss. As a United States Citizen, I give you my vote for an OK to stop, but my vote dont mean much I fear. Maybe keep a journal as to what you see and where it was, good excuse for a day trip to go check them out yourself later, maybe take the wife and earn some brownie points by stopping somewhere for her.

I keep a notebook in my truck, mostly for recording thoughts and over-heard bits of conversation for my writing, but it would be good for writing down locations, numbers etc. too. My routes and stops never take me anywhere with GTs or anything else...it's all industrial park to industrial park for me...but if I did see something interesting I'd write it down and go back later. I'd suggest you do the same, Pat.

You're lucky to have GPS though. Where I work they just keep us too busy to stop or take detours. If we had GPS, maybe they'd notice how hard we work.

I also carry a portable GPS unit so when the built in one doesn't have the correct address I can use the Garmin. I can add address to this one and go back later. LOL

I agree with Greg, don't get into trouble with the job. Writing down general location will get you back there on your own time. Or you can send me the info and I can check them out. :bigrofl:

Ya, that actually works, my wife was actually disappointed she couldn't go with me this last weekend (she was re-cooping from a root canal)
