I Got Lost While Driving

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 61 People

    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.

    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.
