How to drive on air

This blog started as a result of perhaps a not too infrequent observation about our electronic world of mapping. Not everything is mapped and not everything is current. Paper maps all too often exhibited this flaw, especially when they are pulled from the car door side pocket after gathering lint and dog ears for 10 years. Even in a recent purchase of a recreational GPS unit, a substantial new elevated ramp near Wausau, Wisconsin was missing in action. As the ramp took us on a sweeping arc to the west, the triangle representing our car's GPS position started to go off-road, into unknown territory, air if you will and a blog was born -- driving on air.

Come explore with me those uncharted places and spaces, whether they be unknown blips on a map, resturants happily stumbled upon, or life's lessons re-experienced not through the confines of a 9'x 9' cubicle but the lens of the natural world.

Fascinating! I would love to see this blog written on an airy background of clouds and pale blue sky, as if the words themselves were floating on air! ~Jackie
