    This was my first experience working with a map/compass, so learning some terminology was good, like declination (adding vs. subtracting) , "keep red in the shed", differences on maps for magnetic vs. true north, but I wouldn't venture out with just a map/compass based on my ability to apply the terminology just yet....
