You guy are missing 1/2 the fun of travelling--being lost. I've got no GPS.
I've got maps, sometimes I don't have maps. Sometimes my maps disintegrate
in the rain (August 08 Maine). Sometimes I'm semi lost. I go into info
stops. They are usually manned by seniors. They are the most helpful and
courtious people I have met. If I've got 1/2 a tank of fuel and am on an
asphalt road in North America I can't be any more than 50 km (30miles) from
more fuel. I usually ask directions. I meet the locals. They tell me
where to eat, they tell me of decent lodgings (except in Truro NS). It
helps me learn and tolerate. It makes my ride.
My ride my time well spent Jim
