Hope all y'all are doing well today.Just a few miles from my delivery I crossed over US Route 422 on PA Route 501 S.
A water tower makes a great landmark when giving out directions. I would've used this one.
But, the receiver didn't use that. He used a business name as the landmark I needed just before I had
to make my turn. The problem with names of businesses for landmarks is that names change. I prefer...
1. Route numbers
2. Street names
3. Number of lights till turn.
4. Number of streets before a turn.Along with these landmarks I use phone numbers for the person or office at the physical location.
And, I use Google maps Satellite View and Street View. Plus, I have two brief cases filled with
paper maps I've bought over the years. But, I think the key thing to have is a contact number at the receiver and to use it before I need it.
Nothing sucks more then to not have the information for a delivery. I do see many "young" drivers out there lost because they did not take it upon themselves to demand
the information they need. This ain't a Volkswagon Beetle we're driving here.Get your information early and try to double check it against some sort of map. :) Happy Motoring.
