Ever been lost? Really lost, without a map or a GPS? Almost all our "lost" experiences revolve around vacations. When the girls were growing up, there were no Tom Tom's, no Navi's, just the driver (Hubby) and the front seat passenger (me) with a big ol' Rand McNally Map! We travelled a lot back then, from the Midwest to the Gulf coast, to the West Coast, back again the the Midwest and then to the East coast. All along the way we got lost, had fights and somehow found our way home! Vacations are stressful anyway but add to the mix not knowing whether you should follow I-W35E or I-E35S in the middle of Dallas and that's an argument in the making! There have been times when I've travelled on my own and for those times I bring out my arsenal of sticky notes. The map was along for the ride, but my sticky notes saved me from getting so lost I'd never find my way home, kind of like bread crumbs!
It's a lot easier now with navigation systems. We had a Garmin first, it got stolen in Des Moine...don't leave them in the car. Now we have a Tom Tom that politely tells us; "Turn left at the next intersection, then proceed on to I-E35S, you are 274 miles from your destination of San Antonio, Texas and will arrive at 7:21PM."
Thank God for technology!
