So @rsnurkle challenged me on the Member Challenge to these tasks. This is in response to my posting asking for help with map and compass. I challenge @MommaJ to an on-trail navigation exercise. No time limit. The main requirements: Find a detailed map for a place that you can easily visit (and like to visit), and has trails/roads that would take you at least 10 minutes to walk along. (Less if your doctor has time/distance limitations, or you want to modify for health reasons.) No restrictions beyond that, can be a state park, local park, or even a street map for some part of your town. Make sure you have a copy of the map that you are comfortable drawing on with pencils/pens (print the map if electronic, copy the map if it's a print version on special paper or something more expensive than copy sheets). Before going anywhere, sit down with the map (indoors) and draw (on the map) the route you want to walk, making sure to decide where you want to start and finish (can be the same place). Still indoors with the map, mentally walk your route and make a list of as many features along your route as you can see on the map. These features should be listed in the order that they will appear on your route. Consult references about how to read maps to identify as many features as you can, *especially* if you find yourself identifying 3 or fewer features on your route. One of my standard references is: https://pubs.usgs.gov/gip/TopographicMapSymbols/topomapsymbols.pdf (Even if the USGS didn't make your map, reading through all of these feature symbols will give you an idea of what to look for on your map.) Now, take your list and your map, and go walk your route. While walking your route, A) check off every feature on your list that you did see, and B) make a second list of things you can see on the actual route that you didn't predict seeing ahead of time. Optional: if you have GPS (either on a phone or a GPS device), turn it on for your walk, and look at it as often as you want, in order to A) to check how far you've walked and B) ask yourself what you should see next, based on where you are now and what your map and list of features tell you should be visible from the blinking red dot given by the GPS. Consider trying the exercise again without the GPS to see the difference. This is going to be an ongoing post as I complete the various tasks.
