When looking at maps, make certain that you spot the right dot. Map makers will sometimes squeeze, align or place names somewhere near the spot. Verify with other maps or go online with Google Earth or other sources. Initially you may think the wrong “dot” of the map was correct. And while saying “don’t be hasty,” “take a second look,” and “don’t be afraid to ask someone else” are suggestions we here often–it doesn’t hurt to have the occasional reminder.
And make certain you have the right dot. Sometimes a few miles really does make a difference.
