Captain Stuart, surly an outdoorsman of your stature knows of what Daniel Boone once said: "I have never been lost, but I will admit to being confused for several weeks."
I myself constantly fall back on that when trudging back from my duck blind or deer stand with th girlfriend in tow.
I'm an Eagle Scout, we can't get lost.
