I am a mountain leader who lives in Perth, been working teaching navigation for over 5 years alongside mountain craft and bushcraft. I am mad about navigation :) I find it very rewarding giving people access to tools and skills necessary to enjoy the wild lands confidently and safely. My favorite kind of adventure are long distance hikes that cross entire mountain ranges.
