Introduction to Navigation

Do you want to learn to navigate with a map and compass? Do you want to read a map with confidence? 

If you’ve ever dreamed of being able to find your own way in the bush, break through the invisible walls beside tracks and step off the well-formed trail, to become an explorer and discover your own adventure, read on.

Over two jam-packed days you’ll learn some of the skills essential for off and on track navigation and build your confidence in finding your way in the bush and making wise decisions in an outdoor environment.

I’m stoked to be working with Blue Mountains Climbing School to teach this course for the LotsaFreshAir community. I’ve designed it especially for us!

We’ll go deep on learning to read a topographic map and then become comfortable with using a compass – oh! and we give you a map and compass to keep! From route planning to estimating time and distance, to taking bearings, triangulation and loads of tips n’ tricks, this course is designed for people with little or no navigation experience, to build a solid foundation for outdoors adventure. You can read more about the course and why I’m running it here.
