This pass drops you right into the wilds of Sierra Nevadas. It iis included for
those of you anxious to start your Wilderness trek. All vocabulory words are
clearly identified in uppercase, single key stroke appear in brackets (ex <Z>)
Phrase sequences such as (USE KNIFE)/MAKE GEAR/USE BAIT/USE GEAR/CATCH FISH
represent a series of responses. Typ in the first phrase, press <RETURN>, and
wait for a response from the program. When you see a flashing square, (the
cursor) type in the next phrase. Parts of phrases in pharentheses are optional.

After the boot, you see the title page. Press <RETURN> : the main menu appears.
Select <1> A FIRST JOURNEY ON THE SUPPLIED MAP and press <RETURN>. The next
screen you see, YOUR FIRST JOURNEY asks you to insert the Journey disk and
press <RETURN>. Remove the Wilderness disk from the disk drive, flip it over
and reinsert it with te Journey side of the disk up; then press <RETURN>.
Now reinsert the Country side of the disk, press <RETURN>, flip it over again
and reinsert with the Journey side up, and press <RETURN>.

Read the two pages of introductory information that appear on your screen.
They contain facts you will need for successfully completing your journey.
When you have completed the introduction, press <RETURN>.

You are transported to a remote location in the Sierra Nevada mountain range,
the plane wreckage of your ill-fated fight appears in the foreground. MAKE SURE
THE TINT ON YOUR MONITOR IS ADJUSTED PROPERLY. You also might be able to see
mountain peaks, rivers and lakes, and stands of trees. You are looking at a
three-dimensional panorama in the immediate surrounding area. In Wilderness
terms, this is simulation. Now type TOPO and press <RETURN>.

This is your topo map, a two dimensional representation of the 90*67 mile area
in which your journey takes place. Note the legends in the border of the map.
Now press <S>. This scale feature magnifies a portion of the map. You can scan
this map by using the following keys to move the magnification window.
<K> moves right, <J> moves left, <I> moves up, <M> moves down.
(You can also use arrow keys). Move around on the map until you see a large,
white dot. That dot is the ranger outpost, your destination.
Now press <V>, then <RETURN>.

You're back at the VIEW screen. To orient yourself and to discover where on the
map your present position is located, you have to look around. Type LOOK RIGHT.
You are looking at the landscape that is 90deg. directly to the right of your
original point of view. Now type PAN RIGHT, and you see the surrounding terrain
as if you were slowly turning your head to the right. Press any keyboard key to
stop. The other surveying words you'll need are listed below. They all can be
preceded with LOOK; PAN can be only with RIGHT and LEFT.

LEFT       - 90deg. Left of current view
RIGHT      - 90deg. right of current view
HALF LEFT  - 45deg. Left of current view
HALF RIGHT - 45deg. right of current view
BACK 180[  - (behind) current view
UP         - 45deg. above horizontal
DOWN       - 45deg. below horizontal
FORWARD    - Straight horizontal view
SUN        - Places sun in center of field of view

You can use compass points (North,South,East,West) if you have the proper
navigation intruments.

Now type STATUS. This screen, the third of Wilderness information sources,
gives you an up-to-the-minute report on the environmental conditions, your
physical state, and your goal percentage. Use the STATUS screen to find out
what's going on with you or your surrioundings at any given moment.

Now type INV. This screen lists all supplies (and their present locations) from
which you can choose your survival gear. The CANTEEN (with water) and the
BACKPACK must be CARRYed. All food items must be PACKed. You can WEAR and CARRY
(as appropriate) all other items. Notice that you are WEARing, what items have
been PACKed for you. (for this first adventure), what gear you are CARRYing,
and what supplies remain on the ground (GND).

The HELP screen, available by typing HELP, gives you up to ten of the most
important pieces of survival advice for your situation at any particular moment
in your journey. But it will cost you two points every time you ask for HELP.

Press <V> to return to the view screen.

The panorama you see before you is displayed from your point of view. When you
travel (using the words WALK or RUN), you move in the direction in which you
are facing.

Following every travel command, you are asked to indicate the number of hours
to be travelled. Travel time can be expressed in tenths or hundredths of an
hour as well as in time indicated unless something occurs to stop you. You
can be interrupted by several categories of events. They include:

* Leaving a campfire without DOUSEing FIRE
* Presence of wild food sources
* Changes in weather conditions
* Changes in terrain
* Changes in health
* Presence of discarded items
* Encounters with wildlife
* Presence of shelter

To manage the situations you encounter during your trek through the wilds, you
must use one-, two-, or three-word phrases. SLEEP and WALK are recognized
phrases, but some situations require a verb and a noun: WEAR PARKA or
USE MATCHES, in other circumstances, you must use a verb, an adjective and a
noun: WEAR COTTON SOCKS or USE FIRSTAID KIT. Phrase sequence is important when
trying to accomplish tasks which require several steps; the order is logical:
USE GUN/KILL BEAR/USE KNIFE/SKIN BEAR/USE MATCHES/MAKE FIRE/USE FIRE/COOK BEAR/
EAT BEAR.
