Unless you already know the exit number of the target exit, you can't
do that, and if you *do* know the exit number, then you probably could
have looked up the mileage anyway.
OTOH, I was on a tour bus the other night, coming home from Wicked, and
I needed to tell the tour bus driver which exit to get off at.
I knew it was the third exit, but the combination of that and the
number of the exit we'd just passed was no longer enough information to
let me tell him where to get off.
