Listen To Episode 4 Of The Paul Kirtley Podcast
To me, natural navigation is one of the key skills of bushcraft. It is both practically useful and provides a means by which we can train ourselves to notice more about the natural world around us. Similar to gaining tracking skills, learning the natural signs by which you can navigate provides a whole new way of seeing the world. It’s as if there is another layer of reality to tune into. Once gained, these insights inform every aspect of your outdoor life.
So it is with great pleasure that in Episode 4 of my podcast, I speak with natural navigator and author, Tristan Gooley about the beauty of natural navigation, how it ties in with bushcraft and outdoor life and how to get started on your own voyage of discovery using nature’s signs.
Tristan is a writer and navigator who set up his natural navigation school in 2008. He’s the author of the award-winning The Natural Navigator, which was published in 2010 and the best selling The Walker’s Guide To Outdoor Clues & Signs which was out in 2014. He’s also the author of The Natural Explorer (2012) and How To Connect With Nature (2014).
Tristan has written for many publications including The Sunday Times, The Financial Times and The New York Times. He’s appeared on TV and radio programmes spreading the word about natural navigation. Before becoming a popular author on the subject of natural navigation, Tristan had a career in travel and led expeditions on five continents. He’s a sailor and a pilot, with the great distinction of being the only living person to have flown solo and sailed singlehanded across the Atlantic ocean.
