Nest-defending females did not venture alone past the horizon so they learned to navigate by landmarks – sensing direction was never a necessity and was not part of her job description. If she could see a tree, or a lake or a hill, she could find her way around it and find her way home again. This is also the key to how a man should give a woman directions. If he tells her to go to the road with the giant oak tree, then head to the pink building beside National Bank opposite the lake she is likely to reach her destination. If he tells her to take the third exit at the West turnoff on Highway 23 and drive five kilometres North, she will possibly never be seen again.
