    Default Wilderness navigation/orienteering course

    Does anyone have any information on a wilderness navigation/orienteering class around the Anchorage area? I would like to learn the basic skills, maybe there is a DVD or online course you could recommend? Thanks!

    What are you wanting to learn, how to read a map, compass, use a GPS or not get lost?

    I want to learn to use a map and compass to navigate. I can use a gps and I can interpret a topo map but I want to be able to determine a bearing and maintain it should I ever be without a gps.
