A word about pricing - if you've been with us for years, you may have noticed something about our prices - they haven't been going up like the prices of everything else. That's not an accident. We haven't raised our prices in 12 years, and have made a public commitment to keep our prices locked through the end of 2024. We're an independent business and we're exercising the freedom to do what's right instead of jumping on the inflation bandwagon.

Sorry, but Advanced Survival Training class credits (from gift certificates, BOGO deals and missed classes) are not transferable to guest instructor classes since their financials are separate.

Land Navigation with guest instructor Darryl Johnson



The 2024 date is October 19th. Tuition is $187 per person.

Our modern day reliance on GPS navigation and cell phone apps for trails has caused us to neglect our land navigation skills. Google Maps and GPS are amazing as long as you have a signal, connectivity, and a fully charged battery. But do you know how to use a map and compass to navigate and self-rescue if you suddenly couldn't use (or trust) any electronics? Even with modern technology, hikers and backpackers get lost and die all the time. SAR teams call it: death by GPS. Maps and compasses are powerful tools and they are not as confusing or complicated as you might think. But they can't help you if you don't know how to use them. Like any tool, trying to use them without knowing how could even get you killed. Learning the basics of Land Navigation might save your life in a wide range of survival scenarios. Knowing the basics of using a map and compass not only provide backup navigation if you're deep in the wilderness, but they also offer a fun and refreshingly simple way to navigate. This course will teach you critical new skills, and help you improve your current map reading skills. Learn and practice land navigation skills before you decide to leave the trail and venture into the backcountry. You will learn:

- Components of a compass
- Components of a topographical map
- Adjusting for declination
- Shoot an azimuth
- Shoot a reverse azimuth
- Identify Terrain features
- Land/Terrain and Map Association
- Use terrain features as steering markers
- Tracking Current Location
- Make your own Ranger Beads
- Make your own Ranger Lighter
- Calculating Distance
- Route Planning
- How to Make A Map On The Ground

For more information or to register FOR LAND NAV, email kona.ironman@gmail.com - registration is not available through this website - BOGO credits and gift certificates for Advanced Survival Training do not apply
