Wilderness Navigation Course

  • Mar 16, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Learn wilderness navigation from the best in the business. The course is very thorough and taught by the very people who organize and officiate all local adventure races and train the top local adventure racing teams, who compete on a global level.

The director used to be the guy who would train the people who train rescuers how to find people lost in the wilds of Pennsylvania. So, if you want to know how to navigate, these are the people to learn from.

Learn all about map work and orienteering. Course includes topographical map familiarization, course plotting, UTM use (do you even know what UTM is?), use of compass, pace counting, latitude and longitude, and compass work.

The Course runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Pack a lunch and dress for the weather.

    Everyone should have gotten an email with details about tomorrow. Let me know if you haven't. Bring layers. Bring something to sit on. Looking forward to meeting all of you. Try to get to the park a few minutes early to fill out waiver forms.

    No one needs to bring any special equipment. If you have your own compass, you can bring it.
