Resource: Orienteering Book

Normally for the weekly resource I present a webpage that you might find useful for puzzle solving. This week it's a little something different. 

Besides the fact that many puzzles are based on the use of a map and compass to find locations, it is generally just a good idea to have an understanding of a non-electronic way to find your way around if you are out in the woods. "Be Expert With Map and Compass" was originally published in 1955 and has been the go-to book on the subject for decades. It was recently updated with new illustrations, and information that incorporates GPS guidance with the traditional methods. 

As a note: a lot of the reviews mention that the exercises in the book are based on a sample map that comes with the paperback edition, but is obviously not included in the Kindle edition, so keep that in mind!
