How To Use This Guide

The guide is designed to be self-paced and open for you to explore. We do have a few suggestions for where to start if you are looking for direction.

If you wish to follow a linear progression through the guide we suggest starting with the first section, called "Where Do I Stand?". Each section ends with suggestions to move you to the next stop.

I'm my own guide. let me roam free!

If you like to play by your own rules, you can click any point on the map to explore. At the end of each section, there are suggestions for the next stop on your tour, but you don’t have to follow those directions.
