Map and Compass Instructional Weekend

Trip dates: Saturday, September 29, 2018 12:00 AM to Sunday, September 30, 2018 12:00 AM

Weekend Map and Compass course held at the Harvard Outing Club Cabin in Pinkham Notch. If you've always wanted to truly learn how to use a compass, this is the course for you. We'll cover maps, compass, navigation and intentional bushwhacking, and will then apply these skills to hike two actual trail-less mountains. The second (Sunday) hike is optional and entails a full day of bushwhacking - possibly finishing as late as 7:00 pm on Sunday evening. Participation is strongly encouraged because you'll get to apply the skills you've learned. Registration for the course will close on Tuesday, September 25.
