Check this out. I like the part about checking altitude with a thermometer.

    Okay, I'm missing the point....

    Given that there is a direct correlation between altitude and atmospheric pressure, and thus the temperature at which water boils, you can read altitude using a thermometer, a pot of water, a fire and some math, to a pretty good degree of accuracy.
