Hi Everyone.Do you want to explore the hills and mountains but need some help with your navigation? Do you want to know how to avoid becoming temporarily misplaced/lost? Have you wanted to know how a map and compass works? This weekend will be about learning the basics and then applying them over 2 days. I have 20 years experience in helping people learn how to navigate and I do it in a friendly relaxed and enjoyable way. There are limited places for this day so RSVP early.

Day 1. We will meet at the Myddfai Village hall, have a cup of tea and after an introduction to the basics we will head out for a day of practical coaching in Navigation basics. You will need to bring a compass (Silva 4 recommended), waterproofs, boots, hat, gloves, warm clothes, lunch and drinks. I will provide maps, instruction tea, coffee, biscuits and a fun day of learning.
Day 2 We will meet at Llangadog train station from where we will drive in convoy to the Carmarthen Fans. Day 2 will see us go on a mountain walk admist the stunning scenery of the Carmarthen Fans and Lakes . You will be able to apply and consolidate the skills learnt from Day 1 and by the end of Day 2 you will have had plenty of practice in the basics of map reading. As with all my Navigation courses you are then encouraged to revisit the basic skills, if you want to, on future walks that you attend. Any questions drop me a line. The group size will be limited so that I can provide plenty of personal input and coaching. You can be assured that I run courses in Navigation where quality of experience is put before quantity of participants.

I look forward to sharing 2 days of fun map reading with you.

Please note there is NO accommodation included in this weekend

Thanks for a fab intro to map and compass walking -as opposed to just following along behind someone else. I thoroughly enjoyed the lesson, the fantastic views and the excellent company. I will definitely be along for another walk soon. Thanks again Sharon

Ben is indeed a superb teacher. Marco
