Navigation lessons with the Nature Reliance School are not lost on students.
Over the course of the years in which I’ve engaged in survival training, one of my most daunting subjects has always been land navigation.
Reading maps, using a compass and applying those skills in the field always felt like equal parts advanced mathematics and witchcraft. I read many books and articles and typically came away just as confused as when I started. Latitude, declination, degrees, bearings; it always made my head spin. Hands-on teaching helped to demystify some of this, but never to the point at which I was comfortable with the subject.
