I Got Lost While Driving

    It Happens a Lot

    It's pretty hard to drive and read a map at the same time. Whenever possible I stick to familiar routes. It's boring, but safer.

    Then I Got Found

    It always helps to have some knowledge of the most common interstate close by, those interstate highways have gotten me out of a panicky mess before!

    Sometimes I Want to Get Lost

    Intentionally

    I do get lost on purpose, so that I can explore.  I like to see new things, and have a fairly good sense of direction, so I just keep on driving till I see somewhere that I know.
