According to a new survey, the average person wastes 29 hours a year because of bad advice from their GPS. The main ways they waste our time are by giving us confusing directions so we have to backtrack . . . picking dumb routes . . . or leading us into bad traffic. If you average it out, your GPS is costing you around a half hour a week . . . which actually seems about right. The survey also found 47% of us have gotten into a shouting match with our GPS even though, you know, it's not a person and it can't hear you. (Source: Telegraph)
So in one of these not-so-rare instances, I set forth to explore a little-known lake dubbed Horseshoe in my kayak. The lake was supposed to have a waterfall and was supposed to be near Deer Park.
My GPS had other plans, however, and brought me out past Deep Creek toward Tum Tum. To a much smaller, lilly-pad covered lake by the same name.
But hey - two horseshoes are better than one right? Double the luck! I spent two consecutive days on two beautiful, yet very different lakes in my kayak appropriately named serenity. Nobody to be seen. Just me, nature, a lot of pine pollen, the burning sun and some incredible wildlife.
