    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...

    Going to Wal-mart!

    Yes, it's a sad fact! I took a wrong turn trying to get to the Wal-Mart in the town I've worked in and occationally shopped in for over 5 years! I made one left turn too soon, and ended up back on the Interstate! I had to go a mile or two to find another Exit, just to re-Enter...

    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...

    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.

    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.
