a. None - he always knows where he's going (sometimes he just goes the
long way around)
b. One - his Scoutmaster is a perfectionist and collars him instantly
when he makes a mistake.
c. Two - his wrist geo-positioning alarm goes off after two steps.
d. Three - his patrol leader senses something wrong is afoot and has
a patrol meeting to check the map and a battery of compasses, they
figure out it was the wrong direction, but vote it would be more
fun to go South to see whether moss really grows on the North side
e. Four - he sees a westbound bear heading in his direction and decides he's
going the wrong direction
f. One Hundred - He has just paced out one leg of an orienteering course
and has found the flag. When he checks, he finds out he went West instead
of East as intended and concludes he made a lucky mistake. He later
get's his requirement signed off with the flag in hand.
g. Who cares - he's having to much fun in Scouting to worry about it
