Each of us were so surprised it was free that we all grabbed our own copies and Jeff and I actually became competitive map readers. At the end of the day, he stated that he may be called "J-wrangle The Navigator" as a result of what he'd like to call his pro map reading skills. First he calls himself "The Shadow" and now ...
