March 23, 2011dude!
a compass! my god would it kill ya to go back to basics??
March 23, 2011Spot on with the compass, that`s the way to go. Some of the gps stuff is cool, but most trails we have found just vanish once you get in a ways.
March 24, 2011I always scout out any place that I plan on going with an atv.
March 24, 2011Never really been taught any of those basics
March 24, 2011Usually try to pull it up on one of the trail sites and print out the maps.
March 24, 2011I leave a trail of bread crumbs. and I seem to always make it back out!
March 24, 2011We really dont have places where you can get lost, just a few off road parks that have boundaries. They usually have park maps at the front desk so you can find your way around. But if you follow the boundary fence you can always find your way out. Prolly not very helpfull for ya, but maps and a compass should always get ya home.
March 25, 2011I use a compass or the sun to keep my bearings and generally head in the same direction or stay on the same path the whole time.
March 26, 2011Those gps unit aren`t always right. I was following a friend down this river bed and he kept saying the road is just around the corner. I bet we went a few miles when we came around a corner and the riverbed disappeared into a rock wall (falls) we had to turn around and go all the way back from where we started.
