I have been reading maps since I was about eight years of age, when my parents decided to move from the State of Georgia, in the southern portion of the United States, to Texas. I was my father's navigator on that trip, as well as about every trip our family ever took, if we were going to a destination we had never before been. I was also my mother's navigator when she again began driving, and my husband's navigator whenever he had to go to unknown destinations, as well.
Most times, I don't need a map, but if I am going to someplace which requires preplanning, I go to mapquest.com, or to googlemaps.com,, just to be sure of the best roads and routes.
I seem to have an automatic sense of direction, so I can pretty much to anyplace without getting lost.
I really cannot comprehend how anyone can get lost going in a straight line, which my dear mother could and would do from time to time.
