Got the wife to ride her age, now she wants me to act mine!

We went out for a long slow distance ride on a local rail trail. When we got as far as we planned I said why not go a few miles more, and then you could say you rode your age. Well, we did it and felt tired but good from the longer than planned ride. When we got home and checked the GPS against the maps we found we were only a few miles from the northern end of the trail, and probably should have continued right to the end.

This is why I don't have GPS or read maps. Too much disappointment.
Truth is stranger than reality.

I have been thinking about getting a GPS as an Adult Toy.

BUT it will work in the car or boat. I have a very old one and the screen is about gone and the battery holder is broken.
