Naviagation for the long trails: An overview

10-dec-compassOn March 12th, 2016 I have a presentation on navigation for the ALDHA-W / CDTC Rockies Ruck.

Essentially a series of workshops and panel discussions, mine was on navigation for the long trails.

For those interested, the presentation may be viewed here.

The presentation is loaded up in Google Presentation. The Power Point-like presentation may be viewed online. No special software needed to view.

The presentation is not trail specific for the most part but an overview.

You do miss my colorful anecdotes (!) , but I feel this presentation does give a good feel for some of the concerns and what should be known for any competent  backcountry navigator.

Great presentation. It’s so easy to lose those map and compass skills if you spend to much time hiking on easy to follow trails. Now you just gotta record it so everyone can experience those colorful anecdotes!
