Good that he had survival skills.

There is a very simple technique that could have been applied that I use every time I go to a mall or parking garage. It should also be used in a movie theatre.

You simply turn around periodically and look back in the direction from which you came. (I also write down the space number, floor number, color code in the parking structure before I leave the car. And, of course, the parking at the grocery store doesn't have identifiers).

The American Indian did not have a 6th sense. When he would venture into previously unknown territory, he would look back in the direction from which he had come.

I don't ever get lost, I have my wife telling me where I need to go. Smile

Men never get lost.  Temporarily displaced from time to time, but never lost.  That's just silly talk... Cool
