I’ve read accounts about Daniel Boone that said he could start from a new location, travel for several months, and return in a different season to the exact same place with no roads or other artificial markers.
Sounds like a superpower to me.

I?ve read that there are some people (Maybe in Australia), whose language doesn?t have left and right, but instead they use north, south, east, & west.   Apparently they are very good at knowing which way they are facing when most people would be confused.


South America, IIRC. And outside their normal stomping grounds they get confused.
