A Mandatory Five To Ten

With time off for good creek crossing technique.

Cell: In navigation, a natural enclosure, the area inside a virtual fence made of creeks, ridges, tracks, or roads. As an example, consider a region between two converging creeks and the ridge forming the watershed that holds their headwaters. This is a natural cell, and if you do no not cross one of the boundaries you are still inside it and know roughly where you are. Crossing a boundary moves you outside the cell. You can track your movement on a map by tracking which cells you are in, and thereby maintain your orientation, making it difficult to become totally lost.

Sample usage: Lemme outa here, I dint do nuttin!
