  • Only in places I'm not familiar with. So here in MA, I'm useless. I have to take my GPS and a set of written directions with me if I go someplace new.

  • all the time! I even lived in a city for all of my driving years and still got lost at least once a week! Who's bright idea was it to base the city on circles?
    luckily I moved to somewhere based on square blocks now so I haven't gotten lost yet! :D

  • Actually I'm pretty good with directions...I'm good at locating "odd" landmarks given in directions and when I need to find a place a second time, I'll remember certain details. However, with auto GPS services/devices, I think that's quickly becoming a lost art! But I have to say, whether it's because I'm getting older , or I was truly challenged...I DID have difficulty finding my way around remote parts of Maine this summer....they're not too big on road signs, thick forests are everywhere, and every road looks the same! LOL :O)

  • Nope, I've never gotten lost. I've have a great memory and as far back as I can remember I have always been able to get around and I can give great directions. My 5 year old can draw you an accurate map of our entire town. He knows the names of all the streets, what they connect to and alternate routes if need be. My 17 year old would get lost coming back from the mall which only requires you to take two streets that take you past his High School. Scares me....

  • I don't anymore. I used to. Only because my ex used to say I couldn't find my way out of a paper bag with the end open. Ugh! He had me so convinced I was directionally ignorant that I felt lost before I even left the driveway. We are now long since divorced. And, I'm not lost anymore. Without him telling me all the negativity, I found out I get around quite well, thank you. LOL. And, if I'm going some place new & feel unsure, Mapquest is my best friend! I found a whole new world out there without the ex!

  • I do get lost - that's why I have a GPS. If I get really lost, I call OnStar. My DH said it's "blonde star" :)
