Getting going
« on: January 31, 2014, 07:46:37 PM »
Hi guys /girls I'm from the East Midlands ..a keen walker but normally stick to well defined routes..maybe having a mid life crisis and want to go off track...so I'm educating myself navigational techniques with books (great book by the way Lyle ) and videos...I am now armed with a extrex h and a suunto compass as well as a mirror one....the next few weekend I will be putting together the training sessions out of the book in known territory..then out into the unknown ..so maybe you will be getting some noob questions from me.

Welcome Sammy, we, Emma my wife and me, did exactly the same as you with Lyle's book, two Etrex Hs' and M3's and have never looked back, other than when using BackSnaps (P141) ;)
