According to Orienteering USA, “orienteering” is the sport of navigation, often in diverse and unfamiliar terrain, using a detailed map and compass. It’s a great way to exercise your body and mind.
Over recent years, we have all become dependent on technology, such as a GPS or map apps on our phones. But what happens if you’re out hiking for the day or weekend and the batteries die? Do you know how to find your way home without relying on these devices?
Have you tried orienteering? How are your map and compass skills?
