Navigation in the wild is intimidating. There is no getting around that. Its like anything else you know very little about. The consequences could be high and if you are uninformed you could be lost out there amongst the bears and wolves. Of course, that’s a terrifying thought. This article employs several different methods for navigations and triangulation of your position. There are lots of pictures and even a graphic that shows you how to use a sundial to find direction.
The author does a great job of weaving your through various methods of finding your way. Finally, the article goes deep into a triangulation method using a compass and three distant objects. The topographic map is then used to find, roughly, your position. I like the fact that the author also tells the reader to get out and try it. This is always an important part of learning new skills.
