Preliminary: An envelope is prepared for each Patrol with a small map sketch and a letter with the following contents: "You are a group of explorers sent out from the American Museum of Natural. History. You have landed in a far-off spot of the globe and it is your job to make a survey of the territory from here to the spot marked with an X on the map. 

We want to know its 

(1) birds, 

(2) animals, 

(3) trees, 

(4) land formation and general type of country, 

(5) roads and paths, 

(6) lakes and rivers, 

(7) inhabitants, and its 

(8) history. 

In order that as much information as possible may be gathered in such short time, the Patrol should divide itself into pairs, each pair specializing in two of the subjects mentioned. The pairs will start out independently as soon as the instructions are understood. Your whole group of explorers must come together again at the point marked X on the map at a given time precisely, ready to make a report of its findings and submit possible drawings and map sketches made along the way." It is recommended that the hike be approximately five miles and the Patrols be allowed three hours in which to cover the distance and make their observations.

Execution: On a given signal, the Patrols are permitted to open their envelopes. They are to proceed as soon as they have noted their contents. Upon arrival at the hike destination, they are judged on precision and the quality of their reports.
