View Poll Results: Have you ever used a Road Map to plan a Road Trip?
Lost? Look no Further than the April 5th Chat Thread
Ditch Technology and Chart Your Own Course because today is National Read a Road Map Day! It wasn't too long ago that when you wanted to take a trip, you pulled out the atlas and charted your trip. Which highway do I want to go on? Isn't there a short cut? That would cut my time in half if there was. Technology came along and mapped our trips for us. It was truly neat to see our beginning and end destination mapped out and how to get there quickly. GPS came along and there are areas that are not on the GPS and you are left in no man's land and you are left wondering which direction to go. That wouldn't happen if you had your atlas on the seat beside you.
I know all of us have our favorites. Whether it be Mapquest, Google Maps, Google Earth, manufactures navigation systems in our vehicles, turn by turn directions like Tom Toms; we love how simply and easy they are to operate most of the time. Have any of you ever seen those folded maps found mostly at gas stations? The way they were folded always boggled me to get them back that way. We had to use the scale on the map to see how far it was from one point to another. My old maps would be highlighted with all the trips I took and any neat souvenir places on it.
So in honor of National Read a Road Map Day, perhaps we should all pick up a road map and check it out. Try to figure our a new driving route on your own — you can always use the electronic versions to check your work. Maybe you can come up with a faster route or a more scenic one. It may not be as speedy as the updated, current version of whatever you're using, but it might be more fun. Have a great Monday!
