The Road Less Traveled is not for directionally-challenged blondes.
I had to go from my school to the magical land of Denton today, and decided to try to take the "back roads." Well. Even with directions from my favorite Dentonite (Dentonian? Dentonan?) I couldn't get there without passing signs like "Texas Longhorn Cattle for sale" and "Bartonville."
Then, once I hit the Denton City Limits, I got colossally lost within roughly a five-mile area. I managed to figure my way out of the mess, and really did enjoy my time driving down back roads on a beautiful day, even if I did only vaguely know where I might end up.
