I added a page called The Rangetaker Challenge. Its a pictorial essay showing a few outings with one of my Barr and Stroud FT 27 rangefinders. We take it out and range on landmarks whose actual ranges we've previously taken down using Google Earth. Then, we see how we did.

I hope to develop this further and to post a copy of the user manual for this gadget. If anyone comes into the Boston area and would like to try their hand at it (and I'm free), I'd be happy to add you to the data set.
