So I'm on my way to Prince 3's cross-country race - the state championships! The race is 1.5 hrs from my house and is being held at X Park in Y Town. Unbeknownst to me, there is also an X Park in Z Town, 15 miles from Y Town. The team's schedule listed the wrong town, and I drove 1.5 hrs to the wrong town. I realize this immediately, as the park is completely empty.
The very charming docent in the Visitor's center let me know about the other park, printed out directions for me, and sent me on my way - wishing my son a swift race in the process.
I missed his race (15 miles over country roads is a long ways) BUT found the park, and my son, thanks to this very nice woman
