I'm a Snowbird spending winters in Tucson, AZ and summer in Grand Rapids, MN. I run a D-700 with Magellan MAP330 in my van. I modified the wire harness so I can use cig lighter for GPS power and run either direct to D700 or use with the laptop with UIView or WInAPRS. I also travel to Maryland and California at least once a year which is perfect for moving TBs around. When I plan a trip, I go the the website and search for TB Hotels along my route. Also, just before leaving I will pick up several stagnant TBs and move then big miles. Three of the five TBs I brought to AZ last fall are now moving around in Germany.
I have several people tracking me on findu. As I was cruising across NM last fall, the cell phone rang. It was my 7 Y/O Grandson informing me that 73MPH was way too fast.
Look for me on findu or EchoLink
