Google now has my road

Google Maps recently added our road. It uses it in its directions. I guess we’ve finally made it onto the real map.

The road really requires a vehicle designed for off-roading, so I highly recommend avoiding it when driving.

I think I may need to put up a sign saying to ignore computerized directions sending you down that way. We already get the occasional person following GPS directions. If we continue to get in more mapping databases, we’ll get more and more people.

I’m thrilled at the official recognition of the road. However, it needs to be flagged as “only for walking, biking, horses, and vehicles designed for rugged terrain” or somesuch in people’s databases, or there’ll be a lot of unhappy people in stuck cars.
