I live 12 miles from the beach. On all side of me, except the side that has the beach, there are huge mountains.
There is only one direction you can go to get to said beach. That direction would be "straight".
Yet somehow I took a 40 mile detour through Ventura county and finally ended up in Oxnard, which is 1 exit up the Freeway.
From here on out my GPS will remain in my car, and not in my kitchen, where it doesn't help much anyway.
