As sonnysullivan says, get yourself a GPS, or get a good map if you don't get a GPS. Watch carefully for road signs, they are at every important junction, the next small community is always the first to be listed on the direction signs. Ask someone to be sure you are going in the right direction. If you get to an intersection that is beyond where you should be, you will have to back-track. Consider it an adventure! Don't get stressed. Leave early in the morning so you can enjoy the birds if you are a bird person and leave plenty of time to get to your destination before sunset. If you all get out of the vehicle at a river crossing to walk the river or check out the scenery, make sure you lock your car (and pull over to let anyone else get by you)...even we have had thieves help themselves to a few things in our car when we saw no one around when we got out! Always walk the rivers you are crossing if you are in doubt....or wait for someone else to cross first!
