Ok so if you're going somewhere new and you plan your route out... how do you do it?

Usually I'll print out the part of the map I need from online then highlight the route I'm gonna take and write a basic guildline of road numbers and place names on a piece of paper I can glance at easily to check I'm going right...

I also like to do a run through of the route before I have to actually go there if it's not too far and there's a reason I'm going... or a timeframe.

Like Tuesday I have to go up to Warminster on a dispensing course, I didn't even have a clue where that was to until earlier!!! So in 30 mins or so I'm gonna go for a drive and see if I can find it and judge how long it's gonna take so I know how early to leave Tuesday.

Does anyone else go to all this fuss? Or do you just 'wing it' so to speak?

My mother uses an AA route planner thing. *shrugs* it's online and it gives you directions and stuff.

I'm like you missy... once I know where my placement is I'll go up there in rush hour to see how long it'll take me to get there and to see if I can actually find it!!!

I 'wing it' I always leave like an extra hour though to make sure I get there on time. Unless it's early in the morning then I look it up so I can leave as late as possible!!!

I have an incredible knack of getting to wherever I wanna go - regardless of whether I know where it is or not - at just the right time. It's all about organisation and a cheeky sense of direction!

I do the exact same thing. I even map alternate routes. I tend to drive long distances so I like to be familiar with where I'm going before I'm out there on the highway!

i usually print out directions from yahoo or mapquest or something.

if it's real important, i might check it out beforehand, testing how long it will take me and how acurate the map i have is....but 9 times out of 10 i just end up leaving early and showing up way to early as well!
