On getting unlost
« on: January 30, 2013, 08:21:54 PM »
Just by way of saying hello, I wrote this blogpost after managing to get myself lost in darkness amongst featureless hills. Shameful that I got lost in the first place, but there are maybe lessons to be learned from the way I got myself out of the mess I got myself into. A case of keeping the heid and using it too, but also knowing how to use map contours, slope aspect and deduction.

Welcome Cairngormwanderer, no matter how good we think we are at navigation, or for how long we have been doing it, we have all been here, or somewhere ;)

Hi CW and welcome  :)

Part of the fun with navigating is getting lost, then finding yourself again and like Cal, Emma and me seem to do this quite frequently ;)
