For the love of all that is good, do not trust Google Maps when you're in the area just south of Albany, NY. We had a hotel in Glenmont, just off Rt 87. Google Maps did not give us the most direct route off the highway to reach the hotel. I could live with that, though it was puzzling. But any directions I got from the hotel to local attractions were just flat wrong. I put in the address of a diner we wanted to try, and GMaps told me it was about 3 miles north of the hotel. The diner was actually about half a mile south. A Japanese restaurant was listed as being 4 miles north, and was actually about 5 miles south. The only directions that weren't incredibly wrong were the ones taking us from the hotel to [livejournal.com profile] poohmama's house, and they were close enough that we could recognize the correct turns once we got reasonably close.
