felt like a dog chasing his tail
« on: February 25, 2014, 05:32:59 PM »
We were running right on schedule this morning a short 20 mile drive,  easy road to find, I have milled for this guy several times just not at this location, looking for an address starting with 13,  first house started with 1 2, next house started with 14. Turned around looking for a hidden drive, Nope, turned around again, first house was missing the 4 in 14276.

Milled a tall ponderosa pine into all ½ by random width 1” increments, the dog boards were 13/16. It will be put up as wall sheeting in a rustic cabin in the next few days. A few of the narrow pieces were sliced down the middle for live edged door and window trim.

Sounded like a nice job once you found it Harvey.  Sometimes you can not trust a GPS either.

Last year we have Rocklahoma concert 15 miles north of us. There were hundreds of car that came to our location guided by there phone map. This went on for 2 days. They were from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Texas, Miss, Missouri,and a couple of more that I have forgot. There were some unhappy people and late also. But GPS systems sure do help these days though. bg

     Hey, I followed a GPS one time and it took me across the middle of a beaver pond.  That wasn't funny!

You can't find me by the numbers......however, if you turn in at the tree farm sign and go 1/2 mile, you can find me.  Maybe.

Living here in Belleville, MI, there is a road that sort of follows the Huron river for about 60, maybe 70 miles to Lake Erie. It stops, turns, and even divides into 2 separate roads, one on each side of the river. Sure is fun giving directions.

The directions to my tree farm is go past Red Lick and turn at the Red Brick Church before you get to Coon Box.  And to think that some folks think that you are joking.   ;D

When the truckers use their GPS to find our mill it tells them that they should turn in my son's small drive which they can't do.  They are so relieved when they see our mill another 1/2 mile down the road.

WDH, I remember when I visited Georgia a few years back, I was complaining to a local that the road system didn't seem to have much rhyme or reason to it. He responded that his momma had told him that way back they turned hogs loose and then followed them and put the road there  :)

Google has our road 1/4 mile north of our actual road.  Map is really nothing but a gravel DNR road.  I've tried working through the process to get it corrected but they hate to admit a mistake.

Mapquest and their counterparts are notorious for inaccurate mapping and their refusal to fix the issues.

We routinely get folks coming by looking for the high school.  It has become such a joke that we almost went to the effort to print up small maps that we could just hand out. 

If a car pulls up the first thing we say is "Mapquest right?"

We tell them they can put their vehicle in 4 wheel drive and cut through the woods up the hill and drive through the lake, it is only 300 meters to the southeast.  We give them the other option to drive a 6 km loop and use the roads to get to the school.  The mapping companies think there is a road/street that goes through the lake and forest. :-\
