Just So You Know- Down North, Up South

You may hear at some point people saying -Hey I’m heading down north or you going up south this weekend? They aren’t drunk or confused. It’s a terminology that started a long time ago and some people don’t even remember when or why. Luckily some of the older people do and so I tried to find the answer to a statement that seemed to be backwards.

 

UPDATE:

Skip Miller Yes it is from the old days of sailing ships delivering goods upwind to the south and downwind to the north.”
Now that makes perfect sense.
