There are still places in this day of advanced technology where you can still get very lost. Google let me down big time (or maybe I should shift the blame to Verizon) because when they can’t find you, you can’t find anything. I was happily following a road that dead-ended into a new highway that is being created somewhere west of Myrtle Beach. Don’t ask me for more details because I have no idea where I was. While Google remained obstinately silent, my on board nav system screeched every 15 seconds for me to do a legal u-turn, a futile option since it was directing me in “square circles”, not being in the loop concerning the new highway. Suffice it to say that I probably drove more miles than I needed to (and burned more gas), but I am safely home with a determination to search out “downloadable maps”. One plus for the interstates, better signage and cellphone coverage.
