Many of us are familiar with GPS units and how to find a waypoint fairly easily. But how many of us out there can really read a map properly and/or use a compass to find your bearing or relate to a map?
Trasharoo and AdventureDuo are proud to present a class taught by our very own Expo member "FISHPOET" to understand and teach this very thing. As it is a great skill that we all should know when traveling in the back country. We are fortunate to have Doug volunteer his time for such an event.
Map And Compass Class - September 13th-14th 2011. From 6pm - 9pm
COST: $25.00 per person.
3309 E. Miraloma Ave Suite 108

Trasharoo & AdventureDuo will not be profiting off of this class. Instead we will donate the entire amount of money collected to the USFS OHV Volunteer group in the San Bernardino Mountains to help keep our trails open, maintained and to protect/enforce rules and regs in our forests.
