Get the Map Back Out!

When was the last time you used a map?  A real, folding map.  Or atlas.  Using one of these old-fashioned things is a lot of fun.  It makes you a lot less destination-oriented, and shows you all the little roads that you could take.

When you use a mobile phone or some other mapping device, you go directly to your destination.  When you pull out the old paper map, you can see so many other places to go!  Maybe you can stop for dinner somewhere else, or maybe there’s a nice park where you can stretch your legs.  And it’s good to familiarize yourself with the communities along your route- you might want to visit sometime!!
