Our boy scout fall district camporee is going to be on the theme of map and compass work. Classes in the morining and then a compass course to go to from station to station and practice skills taught at the morning classes. Some of the classes we have come up with are and include the basics: compass reading and use, Finding your pace over a given distance, Taking Bearings, Reading a Topographical map, orienting a map and compas, true north from magnetic north, natural navigation such as finding the North Star. Does any one have any other thoughts? We talked about GPS's at the last meeting, but do not have enough of them. I would be interested in hearing from others who do orienteering, geo cacheing or interested in land navigation.
