    Best Route

    You are staying in a hotel in Cambridge, ON, Canada. There is a dog show in Rockton, ON (actually, on the main highway, just outside Rockton) and you don't have a map of the area. You cannot ask another person for directions but you do have a hire car with one of those fancy navigation systems. The only problem is that the navigation system wants an address in Rockton (you don't have one) but does prompt you with various possible streets, avenues, etc.

    Given that Rockton is a small town, how do you get there?

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Put in Main Road, Rockton or High Street, Rockton</span hide>

    or alternatively
    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> Put in Church </span hide>

    Or is that a bit too literal? <img src=/S/innocent.gif border=0 alt=innocent width=20 height=20>

    Given that the show is <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">just outside Rockton</span hide> and, at a guess, <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold"> on the road from Cambridge</span hide>, I would try something like <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">Cambridge Road or Street</span hide> .

    Jezza / Lief - those are the type of solutions that I was looking for. Enter any address in Rockton and then follow the directions. The requirement is to get from Cambridge to Rockton, not to get to the exact street that they nav system provides.

    Lyra - no comment.
