North by South

Nov 19, 2016

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 said, "Yeah? Show me."

And Mayer says, "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?

 
Answer: 

RAY: How does he do it? He puts it in reverse and drives back.

TOM: Oh man, that is bogus. I mean you call that a puzzler?

RAY: I'm sure a lot of people didn't get it. Anyway, who's our winner?

TOM: The winner is Kathryn Chobe from Honolulu, Hawaii. Congratulations!
