Be prepared. Prepared for what? Why, for any old thing…
When you travel out into the unknown as much as we do, it’s wise to know how to get back home. Our digital devices are great for this, but as we learned in Newfoundland, you can’t always depend on the availability of power or a signal. So Alison asked an experienced hiker-friend for advice and she graciously invited us to join a map and compass workshop she was planning with her husband.
We started the morning with some group training and soon moved on to a full day of field work.
Our task was to bushwhack our way to the summit of Bald Knob. No phones allowed.
After several hours of hiking, we arrived at the summit where training continued.
It was an incredible group. Regardless of everyone’s level of hiking experience, fun was had by all!
And the views weren’t half bad either…
