While traveling in New England, I asked for directions. I was told the following:
You are on the right road, The Johnston home is 2 1/2 looks from here.
It seems that a look is the Horizon. You pick the farthest landmark you can see: That is one look. Go to that landmark & again pick the farthest landmark, which is the second look. Half way to the next horizon landmark is your destination.
