ADVANCED LAND NAVIGATION
You will learn to be able to identify where you are by triangulation and keep a bearing without reference points, in deep cover, or under poor visibility conditions, in a group or alone. All instruction is in the field, including an overnight stay (at your level of convenience) giving you the confidence of moving through the wilderness with ease; always knowing where you are and where you are going.
You will know how to find and use benchmarks and handrails, navigate around impassable objects, escape routes, methods of keeping your bearing in dense brush or obscured vision.
You must be able to carry your own gear and several items of group gear with you at all times, this will not be a race and you will have plenty of time to learn and practice.
