I’ve nothing in the to-be-read pile so I’ve dug out a to-be-studied Christmas present. I have previously looked into map and compass reading, but I’m a lazy student and didn’t get far.
I should have persevered because I once get lost on a walk. Although I knew roughly where I was, I had no idea which country lane I was on or in which direction I was heading. It was towards the end of the day and I was hungry and tired and becoming concerned by the diminishing light. What did I do? I headed back the way I came and took an alternative lane in a different direction. By chance, this was the route I was intending to take. Phew!
