looks like that when one points to the moon with a finger most people start dibates about the finger

guess which one ...Bruno_Tibet wrote:Good question, and interesting topic to debate. IMHO it really depends with which finger you point to the moon. One thumb up, forefinger or middle finger, this changes a lot the meaning.

The maps I buy have Grid overlays for UTM, when Im bushwhacking and like to have a general idea of where exactly i am, I can find myself within about a 100 meters.
With my GPS i can find my lat long coordinates, but what the hell do they mean? unless you are sitting within half a mile of some crosshairs, you will have no better idea of an exact fix then just guessing.
UTM is based on tens, not sixtys, which might be easier to figure out in the bush
and in the way of distortion, usually when i set out from the TH im not travelling across UTM zones enough for there to be a difference
