Who is this for? This compact day is perfect for folks that have already done some navigation but would like to brush up on their skills. A perfect opportunity to get reacquainted with all things map and navigation. It would suit someone that's glanced at a map before and can identify the features on the map but perhaps hasn't used or is not used to using a compass. Perfect for those that have already done an introductory course and would like to further their knowledge or continue to build their confidence. What we will be learning? We will : - Revisit the symbols on the map and what they mean - Look at different strategies for effective map reading - Build your confidence (skill and confidence go hand in hand) - Learning effective relocation techniques (i.e. how to find yourself on the map if you've misplaced yourself) - What use the compass has and how we can use it to navigate What do I need to bring? A rucksack Warm layers (and a spare in your bag) Waterproof top and bottom Boots Gloves and a warm hat Minimum 1 litre of water, and/or hot drink in a flask for cold days. Food Bring your own map and compass if you have one. Please email if you'd like to borrow anything. Where will we meet? Rivington Pike visitors centre car park, BL 6 7SB.
