I just read the first line about knowing the ground to make a gateway, in LOC, Lessons and Teachers. I think RJ made that up to explain why Rand couldn't make his own gateway in TFOH, A Short Spear. He only knew Skimming at the time, though, and he should have been able to make a Skimming gateway. But later RJ made up the rule about knowing the place you're going to for Skimming, presumably to explain why Rand could follow Asmodean from Alcair Dal, and forgetting about A Short Spear. And then later he made up the rule about having to copy the weave exactly to see someone else in the Skimming Space; not sure why he made that rule up, but it doesn't work either because of Rand following Asmodean. You could argue that Rand didn't know his room in Eianrod well enough to make a Skimming gateway back, but then Aviendha shouldn't have been able to make a Traveling gateway either.
