I think it was Mr Hawke, I saw on the screen somewhere saying to always take 2 compasses.


If both compasses point in different directions, which one is right? maybe ya should take 3! Big Grin


Don't think ya got a message, about a pole shift from the compass? Huh
Message of Insight and Unity 

We go into the wilderness to fulfill our hearts and empty our minds of life's garbage.
The gear we leave behind and the challenges we encounter, 
Are methods we use to cleanse our spirits.
Of Survivalists and Bushcrafters, Primitive Technologists too, we are one.........

It is the wilderness within, we strive for first and always.
Not everyone can have a cabin in the mountains.
The thread that connects us, is fine like silk and strong as steel.
Together, the song of the wilderness is the song we sing!

"And can I say something else?"
Bushcrafting is "doing what you want to do." 
Survival is "doing what you have to do"
Primitive Technology is about all of the above........

Had one mess up on me, too. Then I realized the neato glove/mitten combo I was wearing used neo mags to hold back the "mitten" cover. Doh.

I could never use a compass in a travelling boxcar. The needle used to swing around all ways.
In your case AOC it could be all the aluminium you have ingested - have you been cooking with aluminium foil?  Tongue

hey, that is the first thing I thought too, ---what do I have on me that is doing this!! My knife? My metal mug? a magnet on my bag closure snap?....

I no longer trust compasses whole heartedly now...This is yet another example of how old time knowledge ie: star navigation or Ron's Ottoman sun compass is the bees knees!!! At least to verify what your modern tools are tellin ya! Big Grin

You may have slipped in from an alternate universe. If you see someone who looks like you carrying a compass that points the right way - DO NOT SHAKE HANDS!!! -

That could cause a terrible explosion and end reality as we know it.

When I was riding a frieght car I used to have to lean out over the track hanging on with one arm and extending the compass out in order to see a true reading.
Of course that way I could be spotted by the railroad police or hit by a train coming the other way.
So it was highly impractical.

hmmm interesting link thank you Smile

its possible that it became near to my mobile phone for a moment...

although my phone generally stays in the car when I go hiking....I know I know..... but its no use to me out there as I never have service in the woods, not even for 911... hahah I got a old dumb phone.

In all likelihood, you guys are right--- my compass MUST have been polarized by some electronic equipment... probably phone or speakers I reckon...

I am going to be OCD about keeping that away from my compass from now on.
