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 day will be about learning the basics and then applying them on a journey on to Mynydd Myddfai which also has fantastic views of the whole of the Brecon Beacons. 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.
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 and instruction and a fun day of learning and of course ongoing coaching 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 a great day out with you.
Have a look at the group reviews for this day below to get an idea of what I am like
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
