if they get him a gps, he'll always find his way home. thank God he had enough sense to call home. if he's got one, even someone from McD's can set it for him to go home and all he has to do is follow the directions!!! sounds to independent to tie him down. he'll prob go into a deep depression if u do!! he's a safe driver...just gets a little lost!!
