Green Mountain Club map and compass instructional videos

June 2, 2010

Are you a bit rusty on your map and compass navigation skills?  Since 2003 I have taught map and compass workshops for the Green Mountain Club.  Recently, Steve Larose and I teamed up to create a series of instructional videos to give you the basics.

Why to bring a map and compass

What to look for on a map

How to read contour lines

What is magnetic declination

The parts of the map compass

How to orient a map

How to follow a bearing

To learn more, go to the Green Mountain Club to sign up for one of my full day workshops.  In the store you can also buy one of the Brunton compasses that I prefer to use.
