Re: Navigation old skool

I'm on a slow as molasses connection so I don't click on video links.

Can you give me a brief synopsis on what the video is about?

Thanks.

Re: Navigation old skool

That's pretty interesting!

In regards to dugouts, here's a few pics of my oldest son and myself paddling a dugout down the river where the Lewis and Clark route was followed. We only did a 35 mile leg of the trip, it was done by several different crews.




It's not a memorable boat trip unless a storm comes, right?



You can see the rain hitting the water, it was raining pretty hard for a while so we pulled up under some trees on an island:


Sharing the river with the working crowd:



Anyway, sorry for the hijack. My last comment about primitive navigation nowadays is it can be a pretty moot point when one realizes all you have to do is follow the contrails, a jet flying at 35K feet leaves a contrail visible from over 200 miles away.

Re: Navigation old skool

Dig yer dug out mate. I am fascinated by early navigation techniques,I think there may be more that is still to be uncovered.Yet you cannot argue with the ease of use the gps systems have provided.
