Tried and True – The Tools of the Trade on the Road
Yes, GPS is indeed wonderful. I use it often but more as a ‘where have a been’ or ‘I need to get someplace very specific.’
When I’m putzing around for pleasure, I don’t often rely on GPS for navigating. I stick with the old standby – paper map, highlighter, a sharpie and a scrap of paper. It never lets me down and is as easy as pie.
This past weekend we took a much needed road trip to West Virginia to stretch our legs a little. While there, I found a county map in a gas station which for me is like the holy grail. County maps zoom in on the local roads that your higher level state maps don’t often feature. You know, the little wiggly roads. That was $5 well spent.
Also, I finally had the opportunity to meet up with Kathy from ToadMama.com 🙂 More trip posts to follow, so in the meantime mosey on over to read her post about our ride together.
Y’all come back now. Ya hear?
