What Would We Do Without Our GPS?


As Hotdoggers, some of our favorite memories in our year-long stint with the Wienermobile vehicles come on drive days, making it from one city to another. None of us can imagine what the ‘Doggers from the 80s and 90s did without Global Positioning Systems. Reading maps? Who does that in 2010? Not Dijon John, and certainly not MmmK.

While driving from Central Connecticut to Upstate New York, BOLOGNA’s GPS was showing us four different states at once: Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and New York. I had never seen such a thing!

I-90 West taking us through Massachusetts, with many states close by!

    Not only did we rely on maps from states, counties and cities throughout our respective regions, but we were also without hand-held cell phones and internet; depending upon television, radio and newspapers for weather and traffic updates. The 1988 fleet of vehicles did come equipped with car phones… a wonder at the time that made the job that much easier.

    Happy trails, hotdoggers… keep smiling!
