I use GPS to get me from this house to that address. I use dead tree maps when I need to get from here to about there. Miss Lisa is a fine map reader/navigator. Though she and I differ on how to fold a map.

Mr Squirrel, you need to spend a bit more time teaching your primary navigator how to interpret route instructions. Maybe see if there is a rally club in Bend. A couple TSD rallies under her belt and you'd never complain again. Nor have reason to. (of course, your marriage might well not survive....)
