Kayaking to Costco

Google Maps

Last week, we discovered that my wife had not updated her Google Maps home location on her iPod Touch since our move to Maryland last year. As far as the little device was concerned, we still lived in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. We found this out because we had to travel to a Costco in Virginia from our home and needed directions. We usually use my iPhone to dial in a driving route, but on this occasion my wife fired up her Touch. The directions we received gave us a good laugh, and I thought I’d share a couple of screen shots. Someone at Google has a sense of humor.

  1. I LOVE this! I hope your arms didn’t get too sore on your way to Costco because the return trip would have been awful with a kayak full of costco-sized groceries!!

    Thanks for sharing the good laugh!
