What should I wear and bring?

Clothing: Long pants, long sleeve shirt, sunscreen, hat and sturdy shoes. Gaiters are recommended, especially for advanced courses.

Other supplies: Water, a compass, and snacks for after your course. A whistle is recommended - only for emergencies. The signal is three blasts in a row.

For the long term: you want a either a baseplate compass with a stable needle, or a thumb compass. Buy your own Estick (SI 5 or later works fine) at any orienteering supply store, some of which are listed here
