I am so bad at navigation. I really need to make a real determined effort to get the basics down. I have considered contacting the local orienteering club to get some help!
This is exactly what I've thought about doing but just need the time to do it.
Stormstaff, in the meantime try going through that PDF and give it a little thought as you do so.
. It's pretty complete & straightforward information, too! If you do decide to get some hands-on help from someone who is a GOOD instructor, that PDF will make things much easier to understand in the field!
