National Read a Road Map Day…

Put away the electronic devices and unfold a traditional road map. Now, try to fold it back the way it was! And, do not hand the road map to David Stout.


The earliest road map, Britania Atlas, was drawn by cartographer John Ogilby in 1675. Fast forward a few centuries, and my how things have changed!  With satellites, GPS and voice commands do we know how we get anywhere anymore?  

National Read a Road Map Day reminds us to take some time to sharpen those map reading skills.  Take notice of your surroundings.  Do you know north from east?  If not, it’s a good time to learn.
