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.
