Navigating with a Map and Compass

Even in this high tech GPS era, nothing can replace the value of a compass and a paper map.  LL Bean's founder, Leon Leonwood Bean, once said, "If you get lost, just go straight back to camp."  If only it were that easy.  How do I use a compass?  What does it mean to take a bearing?  Declination?  Come join us and find out!

      Hi Rob,

      when I clink on location, it took me to a map showing where our store is located, so I am a bit confused with what you were looking at. We hope to see you at another one. Clinics are always at our South Barrington store. We have an Outdoor Discovery Weekend coming up Oct 4&5. This clinic will be repeated then!

    The class was very helpful in refreshing my memory. Can't wait for more classes in the future.

    When I RSVP-ed, it mentioned paying online, but never gave a price or an opportunity to actually pay. Did I miss something ?

      I will double check to make sure a button did not get clicked by accident. We never charge for our clinics

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
