ACK, those numbers, right?  How do we remember the mountain heights and rivers? Well, here are the memory hooks we use.

You can use these several ways.

  1. Good:  You can just say them a lot.
  2. Good-er:  Sign the numbers when you say them.
  3. Better:  “place” them in an environment with you imagination.  See OZ and his ARK on the couch.  See Rain cascading down in your fireplace, etc.
  4. Best:  If you have a wall map, imagine them popping out of the map at the correct locations.
