I really enjoyed Mr. Spiotti's article in the latest issue of OTT!

As stated in the article, one of the party's goals was to try their skill at using period methods of navigation. During the course of the day of which this article records, the members of the party take several time fixes.

I would be interested in reading another article that gives more detail about how to take the time fixes. I guess this request kind of dovetails in with the article about Time and Distance authored by Chuck Casada. Mr.Casada revealed that the tools for making these time fixes is apparently still available on the reenactor market.

Please give us an exposé of some new skills to learn!

Mike....

Thanks for the kind words. I am very happy that you enjoyed readiing my story of one of our recent adventures. I hope that future stories bring you similar enjoyment as well as new knowledge about the northeast corner of the country.

Thanks again!!!!
