This weekend Serbrina and I took the Map and Compass Class that REI puts on. I’ve been wanting to take this class for a long time. I was pretty stoked that Serbrina would even consider joining me for this.
The class was very informative, and even though I had a good handle on map and compass I did pick up a few things. I wish they had a more advanced class, maybe something longer or out on a trail. I guess not too many people geek out over maps though.
After the class we saw the fire just below Chantry Flats. I think it’s under control now. First one of the season I guess.
Best part of the class was the instructor told me about Alltrails.com. Since the stores don’t carry a selection of large topo maps anymore, you can get them online. Now I can print out any map that I want from home, which is pretty, pretty sweet.
Oh, and this ended up on my iPhone, what a surprise. I wonder who’s responsible?
