    maps
   Friendly local geology
    department (1 day with a

    things a lot easier).

America: Disadvantages
   Cost – Flights

   Most areas already
    mapped.
   Car Hire Regulations
    (Need to be at least 21 in
    most cases)

    roam hasn’t arrived yet so
    if you aren’t careful you
    might risk getting shot at!)
   Wildlife i.e. Snakes and
    bears
   Alcohol regulations
Our mapping Area
   30mins out of Salt Lake
    City
   Mountainous (Ski Resort)
   Lots of paths/tracks
   Good exposure, but not
    always accessible
   Snow cover in parts
   Only 1 road through
    centre of area, so often
    an hours walk at each
    end of the day.
Who You Map With
      Be careful who you choose to map with.
 Six weeks is a LONG TIME to be with someone all
                   day everyday.
Think about things like
eating habits, 1
vegetarian in a group
can cause stress.

Make sure your group all
want to achieve the
same things on your trip.
