I've never been lost, in the woods or on the road, either one. I use dead recogning and logic. Many a time I've gone to a city I've never been to, gotten and address of where I wanted to go and driven right to it. After 35 years my wife still can't believe I can do that, time after time. I've done it in Seattle, Spokane, Portland, Ore, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and a whole lot of wihistle stops in between. I'll get a GPS unit when cars start driving themselves, though I'm playing with the idea of using a GPS for some ham radio stuff.
