Basic and Primitive Navigation: A Waterproof Pocket Guide to Wilderness Skills & Techniques (Pathfinders Outdoor Survival Guide)by Dave Canterbury
Synopses & Reviews
Well-known outdoor expert Dave Canterbury offers basic techniques and essential information for primitive wilderness survival in this new heavy-duty pocket guide series from Waterford Press. Perfect for throwing into an overnight pack or brushing up on skills before an expedition, these waterproof, rip-proof guides can be used on their own or in conjunction with one another, similar to the method used in Canterburys unprecedented Pathfinder System. Covering everything from what to include in a survival kit and improvised tracking techniques to signaling for rescue and building shelter, this collection is ideal for outdoor adventurers of any skill level and provides indispensable wilderness information for all situations.
Simple techniques for staying found as well as how to navigate once lost or confronted with unexpected circumstances in a strange location are covered in this essential guide. From easy-to-understand primitive navigation methods and basic compass use to traveling by simple bearings and navigating around obstacles, this reference is a crucial source for anyone traversing in unfamiliar territory.
Education is a critical part of safety - and not getting lost, or knowing how to get found if you do, is one of the most important lessons. Simple techniques to navigate out of dangerous situations are the focus of this handy waterproof reference guide, along with basic compass use and travelling by simple bearings. Contents also cover navigation skills around obstacles, pacing beads, aiming off, and dead reckoning. Co-authored by noted survival expert and woodsman Dave Canterbury, this is one of a 10-part series on survival skills.
