Two free hints. First, when you get lost because you lose your cue sheet, and decide to pick a road that you think is going roughly the right direction, check that it goes the right direction. Second, don't pick a road that you think is going the right direction, but which isn't, because you forget to think about that, that has "Hill" in the name, thinking "oh, it's just named after Mr. Hill." It may be named after Mr hill, but Mr hill is a big honking topographic feature. Third, when you ask a local on a four-wheeler where the heck you are, believe him, and don't continue to ride the wrong way, because every mile you ride the wrong way is one you'll have to ride the right way, too. And a lot of them are going to be back up Mr Hill.
On the pluss side, I did get an ice cream sandwich out of the experience.
