Yep, I've practice that technique when hiking in the wilds and when
hunting in unknown regions. It's helped me return to my camp/car more
than once. These days I still practice it but also carry a compass and
GPS, just in case. ;-) BTW, the old trick of reading moss around the
base of trees to locate north on overcast days isn't all that reliable.
Moss grows everywhere! =-O
