Lots of crews last year at Philmont Scout Ranch had their trek plans (simple map) printed upside down on their crew shirts - so its certainly been done, not really that much good for real navigation but for a destination like this its nice to look forward and back to the camps to come & already visited - and indeed often navigation there only requires following clear signage...

As much as anything its a great talking point - especially for those doing the big mileage treks.

Saw one crew with a map right side up on the shirt back - not sure how that was going to work while backpacking...

That's pretty cool, but wouldn't the ink fade from getting wet constantly?

How about a tattoo map? Haha, of course on your hiking partner!

I'm having my right left contact lens inscribed with a Tom Harrison topo for my next trek. I can shift back and forth from dominant eye to the map, and the contact now weighs a little less... Ha! Wouldn't that be cool?

I love the upside down screen/ink print on the shirt.

Throughout China and SE Asia, trail maps are printed on cloth hankies. Very practical for hiking and a great souvenier when done.
