With the July 4th holiday behind us and only beautiful weather in front of us, it was time to load up the pupper and take the new rig out for a test run.
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.
Don’t park your car on a steep slant and leave it in 4th gear. It won’t be where you left it when you want to go home.
Disclaimer: this happened to the neighbor living down the street from us and thankfully, no one was hurt.
