Monday's Riddle! Oh, Where to Go?

Here's Monday's Riddle for all of you puzzle solvers out there! Can you guess the direction of the theme this week ; ) ? ~ F




When at last your trip embarks, follow me by my marks. Sail the voyage learned from past- use my guidelines and secure the mast. Where you go and what you see, all depends on reading me. 

What am I? 


I gave you a clue!

  3. The tone of your poem and the fact that it spoke of the past I think the correct instrument would be the sextant. Sailors have used these for hundreds of years. Still today the sextant is used as a back up instrument for ships and planes in the event that the electronic devices break down.

  4. I'm thinking a compass, or, as Pam above me said, a sextant. At first reading my initial thought was a map, but ... nah ... Jess is *trickier* than that lol ;D

  5. Arrrg! I wanted to be first because this is actually a riddle I could have guessed . . . I think. Because you use the phrase, "use my guidelines" I'm going with sextant. Early on it was somewhat accurate, but not perfect in setting courses.

    I have to get one of these or I'll lose my riddler's license.

  7. My guess is a sextant, as well, although with the photos from Mars and Neil Armstrong in the news of late, my first thought was the stars...

  8. Well, with the picture I'd say a compass. Something we all need on our journey.

  10. Since I have never learned to read a sextant or a compass...I'm lost again.

  11. I'd guess the stars too. Mostly because I don't know how a sextant works! :)
