Ricky Gets Lost, and Lots of People Know About It

While I'm not a huge fan of Twitter, I do take a daily look at it just to see if there are any interesting tidbits from the SolidWorks Community.  There are the occasional UG meeting announcements (@housug), links to interesting projects (@KsMason71), blog post notices (@avephoenix, @gol10dr, @SolidSmack), and a lot of morning coffee updates (@everyonedoesthis).

This morning when I checked Twitter, I ran across a long list of posts from Christie Jordan, North Alabama SolidWorks User Group leader Ricky Jordan's better half.  I had added Christie (@SouthernPlate) to my following list after she posted this on her blog (read the part about engineers).  Seems Ricky and his family are on a little road trip, and he's trying out a new GPS App for his iPhone.  Here are a couple of teasers from the "conversation":

and then this one….

it gets even better now….

and perhaps my favorite….


These are just a few, the entire conversation is much longer and VERY funny - I was laughing out loud the whole time I was reading.  If your a Twitter user, follow @SouthernPlate to see the entire thing.  While you're at it, follow @rickyjordan – I'm sure he we'll be hearing his side of the story soon.
