A Real Wayfinding Wiz at the Gas Station

There are many anecdotes about people who can’t find their way anywhere (and even some books for and about them!), but here’s a story about a real wayfinding wiz: someone who knows exactly where he (and you) are and who can give accurate, useful, device-free directions about how to find just about any destination.

See this story by Cheryl Truman of the Lexington Herald-Leader about Ken Brookins, a worker at a Shell station in Lexington, KY:

Important for the directionally challenged among us is this observation, “He considers his directional sense not a gift, but a skill honed by years of repetition.”

If you’re directionally challenged you need the award-winning book, Directional Sense: How to Find Your Way Around, by Janet R. Carpman and Myron A. Grant.
