Fold map parallel to your direction of travel
There are two key steps to this:
- Fold your map so your line of travel (often the pink line between controls or a handrail) has the fold running parallel to it (approx. 1-2 inches). This fold should be on the side with which you are holding the map. I.e. If you hold the map in your left hand you should have the map folded 1-2 inches to the left of your line of trail
- Orient yourself and the map (the line/handrail should still be sticking straight out from your tummy) to the terrain
