How to Navigate with a Map and Compass
There are a lot of different things you can put on your bug out bag list and there is not really one list of contents that you should travel. One of the first things you must start prepping for is food, when you begin to consider prepping. You have to do it now, hopefully you have already shaped the battle space of your bug out location to make it easier but if not.
Hey, there are some great low priced eBooks called Which Way Out? on amazon.ca
Wow beautiful! This totally made my day! Nice work, and great pictures. Thanks much for sharing!
Great project. I have been looking for a bistro style dinning table and this is perfect My dimensions will be different clearly, square-rectangular top and a matching narrow longer side table to go with it. I have worked with acrylic and good acrylic while more expensive is more resistant to scratching and for all that are asking I find that Plastic polish or scratch remover for car headlights and paint with a small polisher attached to some kind of drill for speed works perfect. Also creating designs or using pre bought patterns for etching the underside is an alternative. Very clear photos and instruction. good Job
The answer to your question is to continue to orient the lines in your housing to the grid lines on the map. The black north arrow you refer to is called an "orienteering arrow". Think of it this way; when sketching a bearing on the map, ignore the magnetic needle and the black (red on many compasses) arrow. You can sketch a bearing upside down if you wanted. This is because you are using your compass as a protractor. You don't need to orient the map to sketch a bearing. This is your "true" bearing or "grid bearing". Now when you put your map away and box the magnetic needle inside of the orienteering arrow, you are headed in the right bearing. Hopefully this info helps whoever comes across it.
Keep in mind that you don't have to orient your map before taking a bearing.
