Backcountry Navigation – this online course will teach you not to get too lost

Ok, you’re outside, on a walk and you realize that you’ve gotten a bit lost so what do you do? Of course, you reach for your phone and ask Google for some help. But what if you’re in the woods, a place where Google can’t save you? Not to worry, Backcountry Navigation is the online course that will ensure you always know how to make it home.

People have been wandering around and getting lost since long before GPS was an option. There are a ton of tips and tricks to helping you find your way as well as simple skills like using a compass and map reading that can help you get from “I don’t know where I’m at” to “yes, this is familiar”. This online course will teach them to you.

A good investment for people who want to go off the beaten path or just spend some more time outdoors exploring unfamiliar territories. After all, you never know what’s going to happen to you and knowing some simple navigation skills can save your life one day. The course is $149.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
