On the Road Again…

I’m writing this from a hotel in Columbus, Ohio where I’m spending the night while en route to Washington D.C.  While it’s quicker to fly I enjoy a road trip because I enjoy watching the scenery roll by.

I used my smart phone to check the road conditions, determine the route, estimate the time of arrival, find a Starbucks, report a traffic incident, find our restaurant for dinner and book the hotel while in the car.

Some of you may take this for granted but for a dedicated roadmap collector like me, it’s amazing to reflect on the connectivity, functionality and convenience of the smart phone as a tool.
