Default best way to trace duct

is there a trick to tracing ductwork? some methology other than getting my wife to yell into one end, and me listen at the other?

Hello WayneLed:
Another way is to blow smoke through the duct with the vaccum cleaner. Or, if its metal duct, you could run an electrician's fish tape through it.
