    Sometimes I Want to Get Lost

    I will sometimes get in my car and drive without thought of where I am going.  Many times I have driven to another state without thinking and have to ask for directions home.  I get lost quite frequently and so much so that I now have a navigational system on my cell...

    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!

    Thanks Mom

    Mom had a terrible sense of direction. Seems I got it too from her.  Many times I'm out driving somewhere and miss a turn or get distracted.  Then the area looks unfamilar.Well, finally broke down a few months ago and bought a GPS.  I usually use it for trips but it helps get...

    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.
