I love traveling; it doesn’t matter where I’m going or even how long I’ll be gone, I just love to travel (my family says I have Gypsy blood). The good, the bad, and even the ugly as long as its part of the trip it’s worth it to me.
There are some handy travel aids that can really help out on a trip; one of the oldest and most used (not to mention the source of many heated discussions between husbands and wives) is the map. As good as maps are there are a few draw backs to a map: first you have to know how to read a map, some maps are not very detailed, and at the rate things change it is possible to get an outdated map.
Thanks to advances in technology, today we have the G.P.S. In the event that your reading this and you don’t know what a G.P.S. is allow me to explain; it’s a portable space age screen that you plug into the lighter in your vehicle and it talks to you and tells you how to get where you want to go (in multiple languages). G.P. S. systems have their draw backs to; such as they can’t tell you when a road or bridge is impassable, under construction, or in some cases no longer there.
