    Hmmm. That may be a Texas thing. Headed for Frank S's place, also happened to me, navigator was mislead by places with similar names. Overshot only 280 miles southwest.

    Past 3 years, my forays have all been unaccompanied, someone has to mind the pets.
    In the car, I take a dog, gets whole back seat. I stop for gas, fill one tank and empty two others, he eats when I do, and never wants 6 hours at outlet malls. He loves running all over property at machinery dealer though.
