Intro to Navigation Course
Had a great day up at Elterwater on an intro to navigation course run by Sam Marsland. A great course, really worth doing, going through all the basics of navigation, map reading, planning routes, 4Ds of navigation, using a compass etc.
As well as some theory we went from Elterwater up Dow Bank, Silver How and down Megs
Gill to Chapel Stile.
I definitely think that anyone like me, who plans to walk the fells, but doesn’t really have these skills should do this course. It was fun, informative and a great way to spend a full day with good company.
I was on the course with another lady, and I’m sure it would be just as good for couples, families etc.
I now feel much happier navigating the Lakeland fells alone.
