  1. Stay found while exploring Arizona by calibrating your compass to the declination at your camp site or hiking trail (http://magnetic-declination.com). To learn about using a compass, read “Felix the Sugar Glider Be Safe Hike Smart” (Amazon). A compass doesn’t need satellites, a signal, or batteries and works in all types of weather, day or night, but you need to know how to use it and this book makes learning how to use a compass easy. Learn how to orient yourself using a compass, a compass and a map, no compass and a map, no compass and no map. The ability to know your way and know where you are is something we all need in any survival situation not just while hiking and camping. Learn how to stay found by paying attention to your surroundings. Learn what to pack for a day-hike, trail ethics, what to do if you get lost, how to get rescued, and survival packing (for the car and for the trail) just in case your camping trip extends into more nights than you planned on. Buy it on Amazon, “Felix the Sugar Glider Be Safe Hike Smart”.
