A warning about Internet mapping and GPS services.

Many GPS mapping services (other than Apple and Google Maps) are notoriously unreliable in our rural, mountain location. They simply lack the latest updates on rural roads and addressing.

Some GPS maps have our street address plotted in the wrong location. We are not in a town!

Some GPS street navigators will take you on a "twisty-turny" two lane road instead of the divided four lane highway (US 74/441 or US74/23) adding up to an hour to your trip.

Now that you've been warned, here are our correct GPS coordinates —
