Land Navigation Exercise:
Had a good day in the mild rain today, going over some of the fundamentals of land navigation and running the local orienteering course. Had a turnout of about a squad with some new faces. Topics covered were:
Reading military style maps
Using the MGRS and plotting points
Using a compass to determine azimuths
Terrain association. The use of collecting and catching features
How to conduct a resection and an intersection

American Pioneer Corps
A relatively new group made up of battle buddy regional groups that is akin to a mashup of boy scouts for adults and leadership development.
Great group of people.
In March, a few of us in Washington around the snoho/king area started doing the hikes and we've done some medical, shooting, pt test, land nav, obstacle courses, ham radio.
@tnc was the first guy local
