On a map quest

Maps. I love them. You should too. GPS is a false sense of security.


I received a Fed Ex notice last Friday that I had missed a delivery from them. I was utterly saddened because I’ve been eagerly awaiting some maps I had purchased, without which I couldn’t plan more advanced decisions about my tour. With the holiday, I had to wait until Tuesday, also known as today, to look over these amazing items.

When the Fed Ex guy showed up earlier today, I told him I loved him. He dropped 2 envelopes off. However, too my dismay, neither contained my maps!!! (For the record Fed Ex guy, if you somehow read this, I no longer love you.) So I went into my email and checked the shipping info…. USPS Media Mail!! I immediately ran out to my mailbox. Eureka!!! As in Eureka, Montana; which is where I’ve now deduced I’ll be biking through during my first week out, thanks to these lovely maps, creations of a great organization called Adventure Cycling. I still need more, but my first few weeks are now route-able, thanks to these maps.

….and United States Postal Service delivery person, despite your unfounded fear of my dog, I love you.
