North. (Expand pics)
No retaliation......
Au Contraire, to popular opinion, this southerner has been north on four occasions. Thrice, on the Mournes, and once not. With very poor sense of direction, I get, what most folk would call, lost, regularly, and am the greatest deterrent to unskilled mountain hiking, by example alone. And so disgraced, I may have let M.V., Simon and co. down, but sure there you are, borders, perimeters and endless track. It helps that I can read the map but to be very honest I’d rather be walking and when not walking viewing it through a lens. Once, it was the camera itself that navigated home as I had taken a pictorial history of trip through forestry and so I ran the slide show in reverse. It all began with the father no less, who very wisely told me, always carry chocolate, drink and dress sensibly, never panic, its an island, Ireland, only so wide. This is what's great about M.V. A quick print off of the best descriptive walk and I’m off. So yes, thank you all for the assistance, its all needed, and as the most recent trip was a reconnaissance, Newcastle side, across Mournes, I will send, via Simon, the images of said sojourn from Trassey and a former one from Bloody Bridge and (once you have put out these rather large fires), you can tell me where I’ve been. Then at last I will be able to boast about it like the rest of you. While we are in tutorial form, would someone please recommend the most concise literature published in relation to reading a map, and negotiating a compass (for coccyx and coconuts sake) In fact, it would be interesting to hear how individual contributors first learned the same skills, that is map reading and compass negotiation, guides?, scouts?, school?, college?, girlfriend?
