PaulGS Posted June 17, 2014 Share Posted June 17, 2014 I'm learning to use a map and compass but it's going slower then I thought it would. How long did it take others to gain a basic competence in using map and compass? I took a couple of courses and then headed out to the mountains to practise. On my first solo outing, as soon as I made it to the mountains, the clouds descended and I couldn't make out anything. Next time I managed to get one bearing and then the rest I took were w-a-y off. Still, I'm slowly getting the hang of it and hope to get a fair bit of practise in this summer. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
