How grateful am I to live in a time and place where GPS can direct me where I need to go! I have always loved maps, but it's best just to have my trusty iPhone shout out directions to me when I need to get places with a minivan load full of children.
Fargo is basically a straight up grid, and I like it that way. Main streets run north and south and mostly go all the way through town. Jamestown is cray. It's not that big of a place, so I know I sound like a dolt, but I think it's confusing. There are rivers everywhere, tons of dead ends, not to mention the curves and hills (not found in Fargo!). The streets and avenues are backwards both from the town I grew up in and from Fargo, where I've lived for the last 15+ years. It shouldn't be that hard of a concept to grasp, but I'm just totally bewildered by addresses here.
We've been here four(ish) days and I can successfully find Cash Wise (grocery store), the church, and Walmart. So I'll survive! I'm getting better, but for now I'll continue to rely on my map app for sure.
