Picos navigation cards

As an aid to navigation I have done the ‘recommended in mountaineering textbooks’ thing of going through the route in detail measuring bearings from various points along my route.

The notes are here: Navigation cards

These should assist me as I travel along, a reference to the cards to set the compass, checking location against the GPS (if necessary). Its much easier to do this at the kitchen table than kneeling down over a soggy map in the middle of a storm.

I have printed the card off and I will guillotine and laminate them to make 5 A5 sized cards, one for each day
