Beginners Navigation Training: Monday 24th July 2017 Review by Gail
Overall Experience
Hi John,
home now after our few days in the Lakes. I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed our day with you on the navigation course. You pitched it perfectly giving us lots of opportunity to practice. We all learnt lots and Chorley and Kinley loved it, as did Paul - so a great result. Thanks so much. Shame the weather wasn’t great for your day off this week. Hope to see you again, winter course maybe.

Thanks again John
best wishes

Great Day on the fells! Review by Chris
Overall Experience
I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Beginners Navigation Course with Rick last Sunday 14th August.We had beautiful weather and the group of 7 were lovely and open to learning.We were all starting pretty much from scratch. Rick made us feel at ease from the start and gave us a short briefing at the meeting point , the Britannia Inn. He gave us a laminated map/sheet for the walk and loaned us the compasses. Unsure of how far we walked in the end but what was more important for me was the detail applied to looking at the environment , following the map and weighing up the information and learning the new skills of taking bearings and pacings. Rick set the group the task of determining the way back and was always there to ensure we didn't make a complete pig's ear of it . Thanks Rick - I learnt a lot! (Posted on 17/08/2016)
Excellent day learning basic navigation skills Review by Sara
Overall Experience
Met at the Britannia Inn, Elterwater; 10am Sunday 10th July by Ross, our navigation guide. He was friendly, professional and put our group at ease in no time at all. As the day progressed the delights of actually learning how to read a map and use a compass unravelled. Ross was genuinely passionate about his field of expertise and found a way to communicate all our individual concerns so we understood. Thank you Ross for a fabulous day out and excellent tuition.

Beginners Navigation Training: Friday 17th June 2016 Review by Nigel Bailey

Good morning John.

Just a quick email to pass on my thanks for the course I attended with James on Friday.

James is a real asset to your company. The knowledge and information he passed over was very beneficial, and will assist me in reading maps and providing me with the confidence to go further afield on my own.

Thank you once again for fitting me in at short notice.

Regards

It was an amazing course! Review by Cecilia
Overall Experience
Just to say thank you so much for an insightful two days. It was an amazing course! On Monday, I wore a groove in Nanny Lane on the way up and down to Wansfell Pike while practising my pacing. On Tuesday, I went to Grasmere and up to Lang Howe, Silver How, Dow Bank and back to Grasmere. And I was almost overcome with emotion that every blobble I walked to, fitted the map. And I didn't get lost once, thanks to your teachings. No precipices, no crags, it was all very easy underfoot. I have to admit, I was averaging only about 1km an hour, double and triple-checking etc., but with more practice, I will learn to trust myself more and get quicker. And anyway, the view is there to be admired. (Posted on 22/08/2015)
Beginners Navigation Course Review by Susan and John
Overall Experience
Hi

Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed and how useful we found the Beginners Navigation Course with Geoff which we went on last Tuesday 26th March. Having pre booked the day, we had to go despite the weather conditions. However once there we both felt it was probably the best conditions in which to test our navigation skills and my husband called it a “baptism of fire”. It was a bit daunting to see all that snow and not a path in sight. There were 4 of us in the group. I am ok with a map and my husband has done compass work before but as I outlined to Geoff I am losing my confidence in navigating and get a bit panicky that we might get lost even though we have been walking in the Lake District for the last 30 years. Geoff was very patient with us all as a group, offering expert tuition in a friendly but professional manner which we have since put into practice during the rest of our holiday in the Lakes. As a result of this day we will however be buying a new map as our map is quite old, the scale being 1 inch to 1 mile !!!. (Posted on 27/06/2015)
