I guess I'm too much of a navigation geek...
I instantly knew what a cocked hat was.
If I have 2 acres of woods, then wait a week and send in the army to find me. I will be totally lost. I never have the slightest idea of where North is, or what direction I'm traveling without a compass or Google Maps. As a result, I've been forced to become a complete mapping and navigation geek. All my motorcycles have a small eyeball-sized spherical compass stuck somewhere on them, the pin-on kind you can get at the camping store.
Thanks for the article.
