Sometimes You Just Can’t Trust Directions

I just requested directions to a particular store from the parent company’s website. The site correctly told me it was 8.5 miles from my present location. When I clicked on driving directions, I received the map below.

And part of that drive has us going down the Niagara River and then crossing Lake Ontario. (They must think all Canadians have fast amphibious vehicles – or that Lake Ontario is frozen and there’s an Ice Road across it.) Hysterical!

Total Est. Distance: 93.29 miles Total Est. Time: 1 hour, 43 minutes

  1. Why? Which way would you go? Just be careful… I heard the ice a few kilometers north of Newark is a bit thin.

  2. Hey Bill, if you were REALLY Christ like, you could walk on the water across the lake
    LOL 😉

  3. Hmm, 8.5 miles in 103 minutes. You did mention to them that you were driving rather than walking, right?

    Methinks there is a sermon illustration hidden just below the surface of this one, eh?

  4. “1 hour, 43 minutes” – ha, that is hysterical – you’d never made that drive in that time! 🙂

  5. Mike,
    There really is a teaching illustration in this picture, isn’t there.
    Heh, heh, heh
    Thanks for the ice report
    Right you are!
