Editorial Reviews

Knowing how to use a map and compass will get you there and back, safely and with confidence. The most interesting sights, sounds and experiences in nature are off the beaten path, away from crowds and people. But, in the cathedrals of nature there are no street signs and one way arrows, only the hills, rivers, mountains and valleys you seek. Knowing how to use a map and compass, however, will give you all the "street signs" you'll need. A walk in the wild will be as sure as a walk in your own neighborhood. In the video you'll learn to: read an accurate bearing from you compass, read the contours on a topographic map and recognize the "shape" of the land, measure distances on a map and plot your course from landmark to landmark, adjust your bearing for magnetic declination, overcome obstacles and walk around them, even if they are out of sight. In addition, we'll show you where to get topographic maps, what to do if you do get lost and how to read nature's own signs for direction. Runn

Finding Your Way in the Wild is a tool to use to teach Map and Compass to both Boys Scouts and Boy Scout Adult Leaders. I use this video at the beginning of any Map and Compass or GPS class. For example, training adults can be a challange. For ten years I have taught new adult Boy Scout Leader Scouting. One of the three training new leaders take is called Introduction To Outdoor Leaders Skills. My staff and myself over the course of a weekend introduce all the skills a scout needs to know to become a First Class Scout. You have first to earn the Scout rank, Tenderfood, Second Class then First Class Scout. One of the session in this Introduction course is Map & Compass. This session is taught over two and a half hours. First I show the video Finding Your Way in Wild. It's a great intoduction to get things started. Next is pacing followed by a compass game then a short hike using a topo map with a orienteering style compass. It's a very comprehensive way to teach a very complex but important subject. The video Finding Your Way In The Wild is the only way to start the course.

I didnt know much about using a compass and have always stayed close to the maintained trails but a compass and topo are important for off trail hiking/backpacking and i was glad i got it it gave me the basics to take to an outdoor navagation class at my local REI. I didnt want to show up with nothing and i didnt have to have someone looking over my shoulder to make sure i wasnt getting the basics!

This company is from the UK. They state they ship from DL, makeing you think this is Del. USA. It is Del. UK. I buy from the USA when I can. It takes longer to ship from Del. UK than Del. USA. It should be plain if a company is from the UK or USA.Do not misslead us.
