Technology dependency. Makes me glad I’m in QA, I have a natural distrust of tech, I don’t automatically believe any directions from Google or a GPS, always actually look at the map path to see if it makes sense, and usually tweak it because they take roads I avoid.

People were amazed that I took off from Michigan headed for Frisco Texas without a map. I looked at a map before leaving and got an idea of a basic route then called my destination from Little Rock about the best route to Plano and then I called from Plano for my friend to come find me so I could follow him to Frisco.

That’s what my husband does. He has lots of paper maps and uses them along with the electronic helps. For me a map might as well be in Greek.
