Garmin zumo 550 GPS

This GPS from Garmin provides a lot of really nice features, and logs a ton of data as you travel. We also got the GXM 30 to go with the zumo, which provides XM radio. XM is great!

Christmas Trip

Merry Christmas a couple weeks late! We made our annual trek to see family and friends this Christmas. 883.3 miles in four days! Our Ford Focus didn't have a problem hauling us and a carload of presents around Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, and Missouri. Hope everyone had a good holiday.

See here for our trip log.

Happy New Year, too!
