We learned land navigation today. (No, young’uns, that DOESN’T mean that we took out our Garmin GPS units and learned how to input addresses.) We actually learned the old school method … using a map and a compass.
Even though we’ll have electronic GPS units while in the ‘stan, I guess it’s important for us to learn how to navigate without it. (But you can BET I’ll have my GPS unit with me just in case.)
I hadn’t used the lensatic compass in a while (since my Marine Corps days,) but, like riding a bike, it all came back to me once I practiced again.
