Two Videos From Our Weekend In The Woods!

Setting up a smoking camp fire in prep for our Forest Skills 1 students to take a compass sighting on it from a 1km away vantage point; then zone in on it. Part of what we call 'escape navigation'.

Here students on last weekend's course are blindfolded and use their sense of smell and sense of hearing to zone in on a camp fire. The blindfolds replicate zero visibility, which is actually pretty rare - even at night. You may notice some of the students are in what we call 'defensive position' for moving through vegetation in zero visibility. One hand protecting the stomach/groin area and one hand protecting the face. The face hand continually waves back and forth to cover the entire face/neck area.
