2. Hiking Cross Country:

How long will it take us to get from "C" to "F"?

Distance: Count the 1 km squares (4.25 + 1.5 + 2 = 8, if you round up ). Multiply by a "fudge" factor of 1.25 (here the vegetation is very sparse). 8 x 1.25 = 10 km

Pace: You have been, up to this point in your hike, hammering out 1 km every 10 min.

Time: Then ten more kilometers will take 100 min or 1 hr 40 min.

Note: When I count the squares in cases like this I'm just estimating 4.25; I am not measuring.
