I figured this would be of some value here, due to the relationship between Magnetic North and not getting lost in the woods...(Did a search through the forums and of keywords and found nothing. Crossing my fingers)

"Tampa International Airport in Florida has closed its primary runway until Jan. 13 to change the numeric designations at each end, as well as the signage on taxiways leading to the runway. The Tampa Tribune said the runway had been designated 18R/36L, indicating its alignment along the 180-degree approach from the north and the 360-degree approach from the south. Now the numbers are being revised to read 19R/1L (190 degrees and 10 degrees)."
