    Yeah, computers probably have a sick and twisted sense of humour and they're secretly laughing their chips off sending people to Hicksville.

    Since I had to pick, just gimmie the destination. I'll put it into Google Maps or my Garmin. I like seeing maps and making my own directions for the most part. While I've lived here for over 2 years, there's still a lot of unexplored territory in this city. There are also a lot of landmarks I don't know of (or don't know the exact location of). Relative directions drive me nuts. No, Idk where that place is that I've never been to. Tell me where I need to be and at what time.

    Some directions are nice to have, like "if you've reached the light at X St., you've gone too far" or "When you pass this building, take an immediate right, it's easy to miss, so be on the lookout for it."... Those tips are good.

    Show me a map of the land and just the destination, and I'll get there.

    If you really want to irritate me, try to give me detailed audial directions... repeatedly.
    (ARG!)

    I'll use a GPS if I do not have a visual map and destination marker. The funny thing is that I find myself picking up the phone to look at the local map (i.e., next turn to make), even if the phone is talking at me.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Verbal directions are useless to me. I either forget them immediately or they get confusingly jumbled in my head. You might as well be telling me a bedtime story in Swahili.

    Ideally, I'd have a map of the general area and a charted course and written directions with notes indicating visual landmarks.

    If there is a way to get lost, I will find it and just because I get somewhere doesn't mean I know how to get back home.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Map with charted route sounds good.

    i am completely terrible with navigating and get lost all the time. when i look at a map it pretty much means nothing to me, so i prefer to get detailed written directions.
