Hey 60, good drive. From what I understand they really weakened the land nav standards in the Q. BUT... as an instructor, arguing to higher, what happens when their batteries die (GPS), and a B-52 needs co-ords for a 2000lb JDAM? KNOW HOW TO READ A MAP!!! And just for fun, try a night move, no compass, only stars. We did a E&E exercise once over 100 miles (seemed like 1000!) w/ nothing. Just a "go south until you hit the __ river, then move east until the _ farm" Was fun, actually. And there was OPFOR, so we couldn't be sloppy. I commend you for striving to be better than most.
