Land Nav

Post by Ninja Scott on Mon Jun 15, 2009 1:13 pm

This is kind of a random question but does anybody know where to get MGRS 1/25,000 topographical maps? My buddy and I are going to do some land navigation hiking, camping and such. Just looking for a good place to find good maps for cheap.

Along those same lines would anybody be interested in learning some Military land nav and possibly incorporate some ambush's along a predefined course?

If you can't find the military maps the USGS topo maps are pretty good as well.
If I recall correctly, there is a gov site that sells military maps for the U.S.

Try this...USGS sourcing

http://topomaps.usgs.gov/

I may be interested, depends on route and timing. Land nav is simple for anyone with a brain.

True that. I'm just use to MGRS way of doing things which is why I'm looking for 1/25,000 specifically. Good link though..

If it is true land nav a few tougher rules need to be in place i.e. nobody allowed without water on their person, nobody under 18 without a gaurdian of some type, etc..

I agree with the tougher rules for something like this. It was just a thought.

I'm in if we can get the dates right, etc. Probably an all day thing with either competing patrols or multiple ambush scenarios. Multiple battle points and mobile action!!!!!!!
Did I say I'm in?

It occurs to me that we probably want to post this on airsoftica and flc sites. The more the merrier. Would be really nice to have a platoon sized unit or larger for patrol action and quick ambushes.

I would suggest contacting the BlackWatch group down in Orem. I know they have done some longer engagements like this and they might have some suggestions.

Well if there is some serious interest... I'll look into it more for a little later in the summer, to give ample time to plan.
