This class is the next level above our basic map & compass class. We'll introduce coordinate systems and learn how to plot UTM as well as advanced terrain association techniques with and without GPS assistance. Some basic experience is recommended but not mandatory. Attending the basic class is a great way to prepare. Spots are limited and you must register. Email Rick@packratoc.com for more information.
This class takes the skills learned in our 2 hour store clinics out in the field. We'll spend a half day hiking and applying map & compass skills. We will make a plan, plot a course, and follow it using terrain association skills and coordinate systems. If you are new to topographic navigation we recommend taking our basic and/or advanced class before attending this field course. Spots are limited and you must sign up.
In this class we'll introduce the bow drill and hand drill methods of primitive friction fire. Both methods will be demonstrated and then we'll craft kits that you can take home after the course to continue practicing on your own. Spots are limited and you must register.
