I lived in the north valley in the late 70s and early 80s, actually. Very
far north valley, almost in the Indian Reservation north of the city. Not a
nice part of the city at all...
And, I used a similar direction rule based on the topography: right hand to
the east means I'm facing north. If you can see Sandia Crest, that's east.
Never got in trouble with that rule, though.
