    When I moved from Alabama to Elkhart County in 2002 I had to use an old fashion map. At least you have google maps to help you out.

    There is a big difference between different parts of the State, just as it everywhere. Big difference between Butler and Philly in PA; big difference between Bloomington/South Bend/inside 465 Indianapolis/Gary and the rest of the State.

    Also differences between folks from the different original area codes: 219/317/812.

    Old fashion map? Like the ones you needed a sextant to follow or the kind on cave walls? Maybe we should bring CM in on this

    Google maps does help! It's almost become a crutch in that I feel less of a need to learn the street names lol

    Whats real good is a lot of areas out in the country haven't had 911 for that long (<30 years). A lot of roads weren't named or numbered. Directions went like, "go out past the old so-and-so place, turn left after you pass old mule crossing, then when you get to the old so-and-so corner..." What makes it real interesting is you can be talking about the same area, but old so-and-so who died in 1940 and old so-and-so who died in 1995 had different names.
