TODAY IS READ A ROAD MAP DAY
“The road goes every onward”, but where does the road in fact go? We could always ask our handy-dandy GPS, but Read A Road Map Day a day dedicated to going back before the time of such handy little devices. Instead it heralds back to a time when it was actually possible to hold a road map upside down, or stand over the hood of your car on the side of the road with it spread out. The map represented adventure, it represented places unseen and roads untraveled, and was the ultimate guide back to where we started. If we could find out where we were on it.
