I take pride in being able to read and orientate a map and use a magnetic compass to find out which way I want to go. Using topographic overlays and distance measuring tools. Some people think its a redundant practice these days, especially with electronic navigation spreading so fast. Its hard to buy a mobile phone these days without it telling you where to go!
But 'old skool' is where Im at, even with Diving Id sooner have an analouge depth guage and watch to calculate decompression stops then a dive computer.
