North by South Test

Jul 19, 2014

RAY: While we were way up north this fall looking at the New England foliage, we visited our Chief Web Lackey, Doug Mayer. He said, "There's a road right near my house that runs directly north and south. I can put my car on this road and point it north, and drive for a mile and when I'm done, I'm a mile south of where I started."

The question is very simple: How's he doing it?

RAY: How does he do it? He puts it in reverse and drives backwards. So, who’s our winner?

TOM: The winner is Nancy Pistole from La Crescenta, California. Congratulations!
