An Evening on Navigation
Join the Central Indiana Wilderness Club for our Spring Social on April 11th 6:30-8:30pm. We’ll learn about basic navigation skills using a map and compass. We will also cover basic GPS units and the emergency SPOT device. Presenters will be Steve Johnson and Bob Hart.
A hiker/backpacker can quickly get lost in a dense wooded setting. An electronic GPS are an excellent tool for finding your way, but basic navigation skills, can in some cases help you find your way if the GPS device fails or runs out of battery power. Come learn skills, which practiced, can get yourself back on track.
We will also look at the basic GPS unit and the emergency SPOT device which can signal the local search and rescue if you find yourself in need of emergency help anywhere in the world.
“Staying found (as in, not getting lost) means that you do not inconvenience or scare other people”
Doors open at 6:30 and there will be light refreshments in the corridor outside the auditorium. (No food and drink allowed in the Auditorium, Please). At 7:00 PM we will assemble in the Auditorium for the presentation.
