Many of us thrive on opportunities to travel and explore the back country areas where there is little or no evidence of people. We in the United States have opportunities to visit such areas, with millions of acres of undeveloped back country in public parks, forest lands, and recreation areas. Visiting these remote areas requires reasonably good health and physical condition, along with a few self-sustaining materials and skills. Knowing how to get there and back is a basic prerequisite to enjoying these quiet areas. This manual can serve as: An instructional manual for personal development of your outdoor navigation skills, using map and compass, and; A leader's guide for group instruction of outdoor navigation skills, with exercises and games that help make map and compass training a fun and sporting experience. Here is a practical skill that is quick to learn, easy to teach, and fun. 25 pages.
