Excellent Egor ! I haven't been able to teach my F-150 how to do that yet.

I always checked a topographical map first .I think I'm one of the few who still knows how. Once we had a new hunter in our group. We asked to see his compass .He pulled it out and found it didn't work. No problem he said I have another one .That one didn't work either ![Murphy's Law]
Today you have GPS and cell phones but make sure you know how to operate them and know do they work in that area !!!

We had a woman in the group once and she was told if she got lost just go north until she hit the trail. The trail at that point in time could be hard to spot as it hadn't been maintained well.
She got lost , headed north -right over the trail -and kept walking.Miles later she found some help and the forest ranger took her back to camp.
