1. This sounds obvious, but keep your map and compass in a designated place here you can find them. While shooting these photos, I was sure I'd left one of my maps on the ground and drove off. I backtracked to the spot, got out, and looked all over the place. No map. I finally started digging through my stuff and found the map was in my camera backpack! After that, I put all the maps and my compass in the glove box.
