Just a Month...

Hi all,
I have two Mini Coopers and a Goldwing; health problems have prompted the sale of the motorcycle and my wife has graciously donated her precious Mini to the cause and we've traded for a 2008 Wranger X.
They didn't have the options I wanted in stock, so we agreed to a price on the car(s) and will get the Jeep in about a month.
It's been two days and I'm already going crazy.

So help me pass the time with this site.

I'll be needing a GPS and some other gear; the Magellan Crossover looks good at first peek --- any thoughts?
Our first major trip will be to Calgary for the Stampede this summer, side-trips in the Rockies, etc. We'll warm up in our surrounding north Georgia mountains.

Gone camping,

welcome, sounds like you'll have some fun.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

Welcome from Florida Make sure you pick a GPS that will record your path, makes it easier to find those fun spots again.

I'm looking for suggestions...
The Crossover has topographical maps and pretty good reviews. I have a Nuvi-350 in my Mini but it doesn't do breadcrumbs; it does pretend to know the difference between paved and dirt, but that hasn't proved very reliable.

The only two mods that I want to rush and get right away are the GPS and the CB for our trip. Okay, maybe a speaker upgrade and an amp for the stock stereo...

Suggestions, photos...
Gone camping,
