Unlike the needlessly complicated and confusing teaching methods found in other books, Staying Found's system for learning map and compass use makes it easy to understand what you're doing and why. Author June Fleming takes you through the same steps she teaches in her wilderness classes, showing you the latest and simplest ways to plan routes and find your way over the trickiest terrain. You'll pick up practical skills and solutions to problems you may encounter, such as route-finding in poor visibility and adjusting for declination. Skiers and snowshoers will even find guidance for navigating on snow. Whether you're a beginner or a veteran of wilderness travel, Staying Found will point you in the right direction.
