When it comes to Maps, I know I am Map Challenged.
I joke that I could get lost in an elevator and I blame it all on my parents. You see growing up in Ohio, we only traveled North and South. So when I moved to San Francisco, I was in big trouble.

It's surrounded on three sides by water. Sadly for me, GPS was still decades away.
