Using a map and compassItems you'll need:
Pick A DestinationI picked 2 random cities on a page of a Delorme Atlas for our example. Today we're going from point A (Red Circle) to point B (Blue Circle). Red Circle is the spot you need to bug out from, and Blue Circle is your safe haven.
Plot your courseUse a straight edge to determine the desired line of travel.
Get your Compass set properlyRotate the direction dial housing on your compass so that it's N (North) points to magnetic north on the map.
Navigating to your destination
Try to find a landmark along that line in the distance and head towards it. After you reach that landmark use your compass to locate another landmark along the same path and repeat this process until you arrive at your desired destination.
In an Emergency the roads may not be the safest route to travel, forcing you to bushwhack through the country side. If you have Maps and a Compass, you can still get to your goal. Sometimes the old way is the right way. Make sure you are familiar with using a map and compass so you know how to navigate if modern technology fails or if you need to avoid using roads.
