You hear it all the time, sure you do: you can’t always rely on your electronics.
So watch this short video and learn the basics. Get your kids involved, or your hiking partners. You don’t have to be in the wilderness to practice these skills. Take a walk. Find true North. Did you know it was there? Hey, a lot of us are city dwellers and need some reminders!
If you want more, be sure to watch our video from Silva: http://hikinggazette.com/find-your-way/
You’ll feel more confident, and in the case of heavy fog or snowfall, or some other thing that makes navigation difficult, you’ll have this great skill in your tool belt.
See you on the trails!
