We just returned from a road trip to Southern California. It's about 1400 miles from here. The route is rather simple. Drive North for about 1100 miles, then turn left and drive West for 300 miles.The GPS was not really required as I've driven this route more times than I care to remember, but it's handy for finding the next gas station, rest stop etc. It also helps to alleviate the boredom.On the last leg, I noticed an anomaly. The GPS was indicating that we were 20 miles closer to our home than the distances posted on the signs on the highway. We live about twenty miles out of town, so the distance to home on the GPS should have been about 20 miles greater than the distance to our home town.I pointed this out to Mrs G and she immediately suggested that I bring this to the attention of TNS. Excellent idea Mrs G! This could be the source of endless hours of debate.About ten minutes later Mrs G suggested that the distance I was looking at on the GPS might actually be the distance to the next turn rather than the distance to home. @#$%^!!
