01:47 am - Google Maps just needs one more feature...
Well, crap. It seems Google Maps will give me driving directions from one place to another, and it will let me make custom maps with various points marked on them... but it won't let me combine the two.
I know it's a bit early to be thinking about Midwest Furfest, but I will be visiting Chicago next month and checking out the new MFF hotel and surrounding areas. In the meantime, I decided to use Google Maps to search for convenience stores and restaurants.
HERE'S a custom map I made showing the new hotel and various useful places around it. You'll see a few more if you zoom out, and if you zoom waaaay out you'll see the two places I plan to stop for the night on my three-day drive up to the Chicago area in November.
HERE is the route I plan to take.
Dunno why I can't see both these things at the same time.
