Gentlemen, introducing Manly Maps – a new service for the spatially challenged ♂. Each year about this time as we set out for vacation destinations, the predictable “Don’t you think we’d better stop and ask…?” issue arises. Oi veh! It can become so tedious. To supplement our arsenal of dyes, workout wardrobes/equipment and pharmacologic enhancers, OurRumpus proudly introduces Manly Maps. No need to be a Girly Man who asks for directions. Use this Free Tool to flex your spatial orientation muscle. Manly Maps can be printed and kept in an unmarked box or in a pouch labeled Red Bull Chew.

Ladies, stay calm. For those less spatially challenged (i.e. the ♀) we offer Girly Guides which you can rely upon to reduce your spouse’s U-Turns. The guides are easily mounted in direct view on his steering wheel, and GPS coordinates can be fed into your Tom-Tom (if he will allow that…).

How do we get these? The OurRumpian Map utility is located in the column on the right (our sidebar) under The Library. But for this to work we need your participation– please send your home or vacation destinations and we’ll add these to our Manly Maps/Girly Guide section of our Library.

Don’t put this off – those of us coming to visit don’t want more No Vacancies before we finally ask directions!
