Have you ever been in a corn maze? My first experience was a couple of weeks ago in Newark Valley. From the aerial image it looked great. A picture of a carousel didn’t look that intimidating. I thought it would take us 20 minutes or so. We bought our tickets and gave a glance at the posted directions and grabbed our clues. After the first 15 minutes of following what we thought were the correct turns, we were instructed by fellow mazers that we needed to look for a yellow tile in the ground and then use the clues. We walked up and down rows of corn, turning every which way but correct. We were guided by a corn cop to get back on track. After one and half hours we made it through. What did I learn? Always read the directions posted, they must be there for a reason. Ask for help or we might still be there. Never take directions from someone who appears lost or says they are lost. And the most important: there is only way correct route, if you are not on it, you are lost.
