Right on, Cindy; wish some of you lived closer; there are many places in the
Kansas City Metro Area I have yet to explore, and if we get lost there are
more heads to get us found. <lol.

Oh, I always enjoy exploration with another person or people. Two or three
heads are better than one, and you don't feel so lost if you are lost with a
batch of people.

>> It isn't always an option to get sighted help. There are times when it is
helpful, though, because they can more readily explain to you very
complicated intersections. The dog may learn it faster, too, if you are able
to pattern it without having to do multiple c hoice. But still, the way I
always learn new surroundings is start small and gradually work my way to
Point B from Point A. If I can get good instructions, so much the better.
Then, after I've learned the route I am using, I branch out to something
else. I did have someone come and help me in Leon a little when I was in
Leon, Iowa, because it was a little bit country there. I did not do that
here, except I was having problems with a new dog I got once and so I had my
rehab counselor come help me with it.
