MIA Navigation

Today's terrible forecast gave an ideal opportunity to look at the navigation aspect of the MIA assessment. Chris and I headed up on to the hills to the east of Pooley Bridge. These featureless hills were the location of the final KIMM (Karrimor International Marathon) in 2005, giving featureless moorland which is ideal for challenging navigation. As we sweated in the sunshine we could reflect on the limitations of weather forecasting! Despite perfect visibility we were able to look at efficient micro navigation, the importance of scale, relocation strategies and teaching navigation to others.
