Land navigation can be a bit tricky when you get lost in the 100 Acre Wood without your compass. You have your map in hand but with no compass which way is north?
You can find north in daylight hours by using the Shadow Tip Method.
1st find a straight stick about 3 feet in length and plant it in the ground where it can receive direct sunlight.
2nd place a rock at the tip of the shadow. This is rock #1.
Wait 10 to 15 minutes
3rd place a different rock at the tip of the shadow. This is rock #2.
4th you just draw a line from rock #1 to and beyond rock #2.
5th Now stand with the toe of your left foot against rock #1 and your toe of your right foot against rock #2.
6th Look straight ahead you are looking North.
What other methods do you know? How about at night?
