Mapping 101

The course is not marked in any way. We are given 75+ topographical sheets with the route marked on them. From these we do our navigation to the support stations. Possible emergency stops, and a written description of the route is also provided, just to assist in the more diffcult sections.

The green hilite marks the route

Thank goodness I can read a map well, so I'm not too worried about that.

I reprinted a lot of the maps to make them smaller, and I've sent these down to each support station, so I only carry the the maps that are necessary for a particular section.
