Streets and Trips 2010

So that’s why we came here!  It was actually fun to attend a big RV show and not be a vendor or a seminar presenter.  We just wandered around, checked things out, met new people and some old friends.  We checked the seminar schedule and saw Microsoft presenting a seminar on Streets and Trips 2010.  We use S&T and love it.

So we went to the seminar, learned some cool new features, and got to know Larry Petersen from Microsoft.





Believe it or not, it was Larry who asked that this picture be taken.  He wanted a photo with 'the Geeks on Tour'!  Check out his blog.  We got a copy of S&T 2010 and I’ll be getting to work on some articles and tutorial videos about the new features.

Hi Jim and Chris!!

It was so good to meet up with you guys in Hershey last week. I loved the video you made on RV.net about how to send locations to from S&T to your Garmin.

Keep up the great work.

Hi Jim & Chris,

I watched your video, too. Very nicely done! I invite you to join our forum and promote any of your articles and tutorial videos related to Microsoft Streets and Trips, or mapping and navigation in general.
