The ‘Golden Age’ of getting lost is officially over
Hanne Elisabeth Tidnam

But one can still get intentionally “lost” if they would use something besides their gps for travelling. A gps gives you a keyhole look at where you are going while a good map/road atlas/visit to triple A gives you knowledge of what is on the next road over. On our last cross country road trip we got “lost” in North Dakota by taking a several hour detour on the next northern road across to see the Geographic Center of North America — didn’t show up on the planned gps route but was in the Road Atlas I had. We constantly get reminders from our gps that it is recalculating and to take the next safe u-turn.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
