Playing with gadgets while on vacation

July 10, 2008 at 12:47 pm 1 comment

Our family took a ten day trip to Florida and North Carolina earlier this month.  There were six adults crammed into a Saturn minivan, along with all of our luggage.  Included were four notebook computers; two digital cameras and two smart phones.  The crazy part is that three of us needed our computers to either do school work or business while on “vacation.”  Fate interceded, however, and the Internet went down in our pricey hotel the day after we checked in.  I actually went an entire week without checking my three email accounts.  Now that’s a vacation!

I still had my daily “fix” of electronic toys, however, since I was in charge of my son’s Garmin Nuvi.  I hadn’t really paid much attention to GPS’s before, but this was lots of FUN to work with.  I managed to locate a 24 hour drug store and navigate my husband and I there and back to the hotel without any help from my son.  By the time we were on the home stretch, I was actually talking to Nuvi and felt like she was a new-found friend.  Hmmm…… now I know what to ask Santa for this year for Christmas!
