Here’s something that happened a week ago, but I was in the middle of the whole Conflict/Task saga, so I didn’t get around to posting it.
So, my extended-family’s Christmas get-together was being held. Google couldn’t find the address (try yourself- search for Kansastown WI). I called my relatives, confirming that I had the right address, and I got directions.
Anyway, I had been here before, about two years ago. (Last year Christmas was someplace else). That time, I had a little bit of trouble getting there, nothing major, but got lost on the way back. And I’m talking passing the same gas-station twice lost.
I never get lost while driving. It’s this thing I do. I have really good vehicular direction sense, and I always know where I’m going more or less. But two years ago, I got lost on these county roads.
So, what do I do last Friday? That’s right, I get lost on my way back. I miss the turn for highway A, keep going, and then when I get to highway A again, I take the wrong turn, misjudging how far I am (I think this is what happened). Anyway, I figure out pretty quick that I’m not going the way I came, but I know Hwy 45 is around here somewhere, and that (eventually) hooks up with 94. It’s not going to be as fast as the way I took, but it’s a way.
So, in my road-trip of errors, I did the following:
*Passed the mystery gas station from before, which should not have been that far north.
*Finding out that I’m going south east when I was certain I was going north westish.
*After getting onto 45 (from A), later crossing A, and then later crossing A again.
*Seeing two ‘Entering Milwaukee County’ signs, on the same road, a few miles apart, with no other county markers in between.
