Roads.  Interesting. Unless I know the road, I make a point of staying off them while navigating.  They seem to turn my brain off, after all this road must know here it is going, right?  And for that matter, having a GPS with me, even off in my pack, turns my brain half off.  That said, I do carry one, but it has affected my ability to navigate by map and compass.
