May 3-4, 2008 ADK is teaching a course called “Map & Compass Bushwhack”. Their description reads: “This course is a great refresher or a good place to learn the basics of map and compass skills. The first day will be an introduction to the fundamentals of map reading, compass use, triangulation, and identification of terrain features. On day two, participants will put their newfound skills to the test with a half-day guided bushwhack in the Heart Lake area. You’ll go home with much more confidence in your ability to use a map and compass when it really counts! Cost: $100/$110; includes instruction and use of equipment.”
Useful for roaming winter campers.
