Navigation...Land Nav techniques
Being a retired Soldier I have done a lot of navigation... Most of it years before the GPS became main stream.. I was one of the top finishers in the annual Orienteering challenge at Ft. Stewart Ga. and successfully completed the Ranger land Nav course and the Special FOrces "STAR" course. I wanted to open a thread where folks talk about navigation...land water ways, etc...that has nothing to do with satellites or electronic devices. So If your idea of land nav is put destination into Garman and follow british chicks voice prompts...please do not reply. For the rest of you... talk about how to make a compass.... how to get from point A to point B and back to point A...etc. I will add my 2 cents in as we go...but Land nav is not easy...and is it no joke...it's a skill...an art at times...but more importantly it will and can save your life.
