Don’t Trust GPS!

WOW! This All Sounds Really Great!

But how come I keep getting lost?

VERY IMPORTANT: DO NOT RELY ON GPS TECHNOLOGY!    DITTO FOR MAPQUEST!

Or else you will very likely get lost and then you will be aggravated, irritated, frustrated, grumpy and tired by the time you finally get here. We can still fix all that! But it’s much better for everybody if you just turn off the GPS, turn on some mellow tunes, and follow these easy directions. (The reason for this is that most of the GPS devices will attempt to send you down a road that no longer exists, and you will mistakenly turn down our neighbor’s private driveway. He would rather you didn’t do that. Try as we might, we have been unsuccessful at getting the manufacturers to update their information to correct this.)
