Navigation Day

This is the field day for Navigation. To be eligible to go on the trip the registered participant of Day Hiker School. We will meet at 730 and plan to leave no later than 745.

Sept 18th – We will be going to White Ranch for our Field Day. Please be prepared to go off trail and navigate.

We will be near Golden, so at a lower altitude. Please plan appropriately – meaning lots of water and sun protection. The pace will be dictated by the participants. We will however be stopping frequently and going over different teaching points.

What to bring

  1. Ten essentials – bring what you have, we will be going through people’s packs and looking at the various items brought. So, you do not have to go out and buy things – we will have some suggestions based on what you bring.
  2. Plenty of water – at LEAST 2 liters and sun protection
  3. 2 pieces of rope about 2 feet in length – I will bring extras if you do not have some.
  4. Please bring a lunch – I am planning on being back some time between 3 and 4
  5. You will HAVE to have with you a compass, ruler and something to write on.

Time – we will meet at 7:30 at the CMC in Golden in the parking lot that is just East of the Building. Let me know if you do not know where the CMC Building is.

The compass recommended by the school is the Suunto MC-2, you do not need the global version.

We often will stop for an after hiking social. This will be in Golden. This is an optional part of the hike, but often a great time.

Please review the CMC protocol for COVID.
