This achievement is awarded for reaching the hashpoint coordinates using non-electronic means only. You may, of course, use your computer to look up the position of the hashpoint, and you may use an electronic camera to document your expedition, but the actual finding of the hashpoint must be done without electronic equipment such as GPS devices or radios.

If the hashpoint is located in an urban area or some other easily-found place, it may be sufficient to print off an aerial view of the location and match that to what you can see at the hashpoint. However, in rural areas where the day's location is in the middle of a forest or field, you may have to be more cunning and use a tape measure, compass, sextant and/or other device to find the exact spot.
