I was rather surprised to find this article in one of our largest metropolitan area newspapers: Why it's a real mistake to rely on a cell phone when you go hiking. I read the Washington Post site for political news, but this article isn't political!

It's basically on the vital importance of paper maps and learning to read and orient yourself to them.
