How to Go to Any Date Fast in Google Calendar


A balloon trip in three years? And what did I do last July that might have led to sales taking off?

To reach these dates, you can click the Google Calendar's overview calendar like a telegrapher sending morse code; or you dial in the exact date you want directly.
