I was on my way to Tom Carson's place via Google Maps directions. Unfortunately there was construction near the end of my route and I did not know what to do about a closed road that I had been directed to go down. So I pulled into a housing division to turn on my laptop and get Tom's phone number. When I turned Lappy on it picked up an unsecured wireless connection. So I brought up the map and figured out my own detour directions. Hooray for technology!
