    He obviously didn't buy enough candy to begin with!

    Data, or anecdotes? Because in the 42 years my mom's been teaching, she hasn't noticed people getting "worse."

    Good luck, Pax.

    FWIW, when my mom had both knees done a few years ago, her ortho told her that it's better to have the TKA before you're completely immobilized. What he said is that people wait...

    I guess I have mixed feelings about it. What about the petroglyphs that are thousands of years old? What about, even, the carvings from the late 1800s and early 1900s? I get the outrage, I really do....

    Nice!! Looks like a great trip.

    I'm with you on walking the cobblestone descents. I'm the same way on gravel on a road bike. Or on the moto, even. No thanks.

    You'd be better off buying from REI, then you have a year to figure out whether Garmin will ever develop stable firmware before you can take it back.

    Yeah, I'd try the user forums. People are pretty helpful there.

    Garmin used to make good products. It's kind of sad what's happened to the company.

    Oh HAIL yeah. I'm still seriously considering one of those pump-up air horns for exactly that purpose. Except I doubt they would notice that either, and then I'd just be $30 down the hole.
