More GPS Points of Interest (POI’s)

No sign of the spray foam contractor today, so we will have to wait for Andy to return from holiday tomorrow to find out when the insulation will be completed on Waiouru.  Hopefully it will be later this week as the carpenters are waiting to work on the installation of the floor.  The can’t fit the floor until I apply the Waxoyl to the baseplate and this can’t be done until the spray foam is fixed.

This morning I scrapped all the damaged foam insulation from around the filled in porthole in the hope anticipation the contractor will arrive very soon.

I’ve spent much of the last few evenings collecting and filtering information from the internet which may be of use to us whilst living on Waiouru.  This has been added to our Garmin gps database.

The first thing I wanted was the location of every Calor Gas outlet within walking distance of a canal. There are a significant number as can be seen from the following screen dump.

Of course this information becomes more legible as you increase the map scale.

Jan has been making purchases from Dunelm Mill so I’ve collected that information.

I even made the small Dunelm Mill icons.  Other poi’s collected and saved include Lakeland, Julian Graves, Homebase, B&Q, etc.
