For the experienced among you do come and try some loops on a blue/brown only map.
This concentrates the mind on recognising the shape of the land and the water features, besides improving compass and pacing skills. Why do this? Firstly the shape of the land and the more prominent water features stay the same. Secondly being only blue and brown it stops total reliance on using on vegetation and path/track network, which do change over time, thus adding another useful skill to your "toolbox of techniques" Colin H.
