*Pilot encounters WX en route and starts a deviation, using LORAN at first, then resorting to highway navigation. He misidentifies an airport and on that assumption flies into the very restr area he was trying to avoid. Cites being blown north of course as 1 factor, and that his navigation skills had deteriorated along with his effective use of VOR navigation. Advocates a combination of all navigation aids and also the value of obtaining proper WX briefings and evaluation. Going home syndrome was listed as a factor.
