Tristan Gooley specialises in natural navigation. He set up his natural navigation school in 2008 and is the author of the award-winning and bestselling books, The Natural Navigator (2010), The Walker’s Guide to Outdoor Clues & Signs (2014), How to Read Water(2016) and Wild Signs and Star Paths (2018).
He has written for the Sunday Times, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the BBC and many magazines on the subjects of natural navigation and the subtle clues provided by nature that are all around you if you know where (and how) to look.
Tristan has led expeditions on land and at sea. He has climbed mountains and sailed oceans. He is the only living person to have both flown solo and sailed singlehanded across the Atlantic. He is a Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation and the Royal Geographical Society.
Tristan was also one of the first guests on my podcast and I’m delighted to welcome him back again. In the meantime Tristan has been busy, having published a couple of new books since we last recorded a podcast, so we had lots to talk about.
In this conversation it was great that we went right into the weeds on some subjects close to Tristan’s heart as well as crossing over with areas of knowledge I have touched upon with other podcast guests such as Sarita Robinson and John Hudson.
So, please enjoy the following conversation with Tristan Gooley, which forms Episode 45 of the Paul Kirtley Podcast…
