    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.

    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!

    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...
