County Soil Survey
If you don't have a paper copy of the soil survey, you can download one from the NRCS. I did that already posted them on the training page: 1965 version (95 mb) | 2006 version (42 mb). Save and extract to your computer and you'll be able to view the contents without an internet connection.
