How well do you know your shortcut?
Do you rely on street signs without knowing it? 

I was driving my usual route when it started to snow…then blizzard.

Visibility was less than 10 feet.

Street signs were covered with snow.

Everyone was driving less than 2 miles an hour.

Being the genius navigator I am, I thought I could take a short cut and stay off the main (clogged) roads. What should have taken me a few minutes, and right to my location, took me miles away from my destination, and I didn’t even realize I’d taken a wrong turn because nothing looked like it was supposed to.

When street signs and man-made landmarks no longer exist, when the landscape no longer looks like it did yesterday, will you know where you’re going?

I have no idea how to work a compass…but I’m about to learn, and find one that fits on my keychain.
