An easy-to-understand primer on time-tested navigation techniques that work when your GPS fails
When disaster strikes and modern technology becomes useless, the navigation techniques used by humans for thousands of years will once again become critically important. Without GPS and cell tracking devices, reading maps and natural landmarks will be your only option. For everything from escaping the explosive danger in disaster areas to finding your bug-out shelter or known safe zone, navigation skills are essential. With expert advice drawn from numerous U.S. Army manuals and the author’s own knowledge and experience, this book will quickly teach you how to navigate with any tool, at any time, in any weather conditions. The author covers such valuable skills as finding north without a compass, reading terrain, using and maintaining a compass, and even figuring out what to do when the only solution is to wait for help to arrive. The time-tested skills presented in this book will be a lifesaver for you, whether you need to find your way home or set out to safety across unfamiliar terrain.
Walter Glen Martin is the owner and producer of Prepper Broadcasting, a 24/7 prepper/survival internet radio station. Raised in Oregon, he spent most of his youth hunting, fishing, and camping in the Strawberry Mountains and, later, the Three Sisters Wilderness area. Working with a degree in architectural and mechanical drafting, Walt still longed for adventure, and weekends, holidays, and vacations would always find him somewhere in the wilderness. When he’s not at his desk, Walt is either tending his animals or somewhere in the mountains of Northern Idaho.
