Refreshing in a map and compass navigation class. Yup, it’s old-school wizardry. None of that newfangled GPS stuff for these grey boy scouts.

Three points gained.

  1. A compass does one thing: it points to magnetic north.

  2. If you use a map, remember declination.

  3. West is best; East is least.

By the way, declination is the boogery part.

Hang with me and you won’t get lost. Okay, maybe we will but at least you’ll be in good company.

Consider joining us in Israel-Palestine this summer. We have spaces available on three different trips. Find the dates here, then email me at markziese@gmail.com for details.
