    Made it home....finally

    As you can tell by the posting time, it's late as hell. I really should have been here about 45 minutes earlier but, I had some issues with Google navigation. There was a lot of high volume profanity involved. I'll fill y'all in tomorrow because right now, I'm going to pass out.

    Ok. Here is something that everybody can play along with. Go to Google maps. Put 6614 Mooretown rd. Williamsburg, VA as you starting point and Nags Head, NC as your finish. Everything was ok until turn number five. It looked ok because it was sending me down a major highway. Then it sends me down VA Beach Blvd. NOT a highway. It has a 30 mph speed limit and a gauntlet of stop lights.

    I was now swearing profusely at my navigation software. At a high volume.

    I wanted to stop and look at the map to find a real route home but, I looked at the surrounding neighborhood and decided against it.

    Now I'm wandering through what I see as random side streets through the Hampton Roads/Norfolk area.

    In my travels through the area, I notice a sign for Monticello Ave. I say (to my self and the gps, out loud) "Isn't The NorVa, a venue for concerts and the like, on Monticello? Why the (explicative deleted) am I in downtown Norfolk?!"

    I then turn off my navigation software, with more colorful language, and take the route, that I have memorized from so many trips to the NorVa, and proceeds homeward.

    I seriously thought that I was going to blow a gasket, not car related, when I was yelling at my gps.

    Anyway, I made it home. Later than I should have. But, I made it.

    I guess it could be a programing glitch. I looked at the map of where Google sent me and it was essentially a straight line. That doesn't always work out well in city driving.
