We'll follow one of these routes
(.pdf) but as we're both city dwellers unused to driving in huge wide open spaces, I'm concerned that missing a turning might lead us to be hopelessly lost in a pretty unhospitable atmosphere.
Is paying extra to rent a car with GPS worthwhile, given that, if we get lost, we might be seriously lost in a desert miles from the nearest town? Or are the roads so clearly signposted that it's hard to get lost.
