    The Bog probably the simplest map to do this on, either take a screenshot of the map or guess your way, if you ever get lost, return to main menu and there you see where you are and the route you've taken. Load in and find your way!

    GuinIceWizardTested in Multiplayer just in case. Confirmed requires single player even with both people completing the requirements.

    It's much easier if you already know layout of maps. On "The Bog" there is only one lumber to fill so it might be easier but road is pretty long, The Island and Seashore have two lumbers each but maps itself are pretty "compact" with good layouts of workshops and gas stations.
    You can try it later when you have unlocked better trucks (you get 1 unlock point for completing each map in campaign, easy or simulation, it doesn't matter)

    smoli83Adding this comment as a possible walkthrough for this achievement on the Island level, taken from my 'Blind Navigation' and 'My Only Love' guides, which can all be done together with 'Forester'.

    The description below is a walkthrough which doesn't go near any watch points ('Blind Navigation', and which also shows how to get 'Forester' (This achievement) and 'My Only Love' at the same time.

    (If you want to get 'Forester', don't press select / open the map, not even to change a vehicle, so try not to get stuck etc., or you will have to open the map to switch vehicles. If you don't change vehicle, this is a good way to also get 'My Only Love' - use just one vehicle to finish a map. It is useful to select the one vehicle you want to use as the MIDDLE vehicle out of the three you can select for the map - you spawn into the middle one by default, so you don't need to switch or open the map.)

    Select Island map - it is best to familiarise yourself with it first, so start a new game and just use the Jeep to check it out and find all the Log stations / Lumber mills / Fuel stations etc., doing a practice run of the directions below, and then restart the level to do this achievement. (Probably best to go to main menu then start a new game.) Getting this achievement this way (and the other two if you want) only takes about 45 minutes to an hour.

    I used the C-375 truck, but any that can take the medium log cart is fine. Good off road capability is useful. I used the log carrier and medium log cart (easier than using the small trailer or the long cart, and still only needs two trips per mill), and included a spare wheel in case I got a bit of damage. I then went straight and left, through the first lumber mill, up a small hill and left at the junction on the concrete road, heading roughly North East, then over the big ford, over the little ford, and along and down the hill to the North East Log Station. Load up, and head back the exact same way to the Lumber Mill near the start.

    Do this twice, then you will be low-ish on fuel, so head straight down the main concrete road in the middle of the map, through the block post and down to the fuel station in the South East. Fill up, which will then be enough to finish the mission in the C-375. Head left to the 2nd garage, and past it to the Log Station just to the north (go via the road to the left, and head round to the right, if you don't want to get stuck in the trees). Load up, and head West, across the big track (this bit is very boggy up a steep hill and across a bad road - be patient and use Low 2 or 1),

    Go through the forest on a little track, over and across the main road you came down earlier (DON'T check the map if you want the 'Forester' achievement!), and down a little track to a ford, heading South West, and just follow the track - it gets a bit vague over some sandy bits, but if you've familiarised yourself with it, you should be fine. follow that track all the way to the South West Lumber Mill, unload, and repeat (no need to fuel up again, you'll have enough in the C-375. As soon as you have put 8pts into both Lumber Mills, the achievement will pop if you haven't unlocked any watch points.

    If you haven't opened the map (not even once / to switch vehicles etc!), you will also get 'Forester'. If you haven't switched vehicles at all, then you will also get 'My Only Love'. Enjoy! :)
