Navigation Skills……….

I see lots of people carry a small button compass in there gear. These come in different sizes but they are all essentially a ‘back up item’ 

Next time you are out and about in your chosen AO. Conduct a few legs using them for some simple Navigation tasks.

Being a ML and SAR my navigation is to a good standard, but it is still a skill that should used regularly.
