I have had many request for this skillset. We will go over the basics of using a map compass and topographic maps
parts of a compass
how the compass works
how to obtain a bearing
how to navigate on said bearing
how to obtain a back bearing
topo map symbols
parts of the map
marrying the map and compass using two methods
we will also be doing pace counting and the method of keeping your pace and other methods of finding the cardinal points
what to bring:
a map compass
dress for the weather
snacks and water
The event will most likely last about 2 to 3 hours at which time you should be confident enough to use methods taught to navigate a few legs of a course.
We will hold the event rain or shine and if you have any questions please feel free to email me or give me a jingle hope to see you there.
