Ft. Riley, Kansas is a difficult location to navigate. It has few distinguishing features to use in order to navigate. For those of you who can’t appreciate the difficult in doing this, it is a little like trying to find an address in a major metropolitan area that you are unfamiliar with without a street map and half the city on your back bumper. It was difficult to navigate until I finally realized the key to navigating Ft. Riley. I began to realize that among the oceans of grasses and sunflowers, the only trees that were growing in our maneuver area were along streams. It seems that in this relatively arid region, the only trees that were able to survive were near sources of water.
