    Shameless Self Promotion

    Last night was the Snohomish Land Nav Class at the Snohomish, WA Library.

    It was a hoot! We all learned quite a bit and had a good time doing so. One lucky individual walked away with a free Troxel trail helmet!

    We went into depth on the topics of:
    · Interpretation of topographic maps; Helping the trail rider can visualize the terrain while he/she is planning a trip.
    · Declination and why failure to adjust for it can be cause for seeing a lot of unexpected country.
    · Compasses; How and why they lie

    At next month’s Snohomish Library we’ll dive deeper into:
    · Taking and shooting azimuths
    · Finding where you are on a map and determining how to get where you want to be

    You can see some of what we cover here: TIPS to KNOW and LEARN

    Some comments from participants:
    “I am really enjoying this series, I look forward to next month’s gathering.”

    “Have a better understand on how to read a map. Looking forward to next class when we will do more hands on.”


    “I love this class! Informative and very entertaining. I have learned many things that I "thought" I already knew. I am looking forward to our next installment!


    Wow what a great class. I didn't want it to stop at the end :) Looking forward to the next class!”

    Bearing this in mind I’ve been asked to visit the Cincinnati, Ohio area in March to teach a few of these classes to trail riders there.

    If you’re in the Greater Cincy area please let me know if you’d be interested in attending, I’ll get a link out to you with more details.

    The classes are benefiting Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship, a NARHA facility that provides riding lessons to children and adults with disabilities.

    Your activites sound like so much fun. I lease a horse who is a pretty good trail horse (sometimes ditzy, but pretty sure footed). He isn't mine, but I am allowed to trailer him out, BUT I dont' have a trailer. Is there any way to join you guys on trail rides , like hitch a ride with someone comeing from my area? Bridle trails.

    Wow wee that sounds like great fun!!! My 8th grade science teacher, Mr. Carson, introduced us to topo maps and I remember some of it. I would love to take a course on this!
