I can identify with your article even though I'm a lady.I won't ask for directions, actually I hate it when people start giving me all this unasked for directions, I'm about to yell "just give me the damn address" Ohhh and if anyone suggest me using a GPS...it is tough keeping my coolness, I DON'T NEED a GPS...Ever, period.I love maps, and actually love getting lost, there is something so romantic on finding new unknown paths. I'm mexican so it is kind of scary right now to venture onto any street because of the cartels war but whenever I drive to the States, I sure can be happy being lost in any rural road, fave place not to find my way, appalachians mts or any place I get to see a red farm.
