About

For some time I've been producing navigation skills quizzes, tasks and tutorials and uploading detailed explanations of navigation techniques on YouTube. This started as a way to help clients who had signed up to my outdoor navigation courses but over time more people engaged on social media and the demand and interaction grew until I was producing a regular task every week. I found myself spending quite a lot of time and effort making these resources - taking photographs in remote locations, looking at maps for unusual or interesting features to include, producing Powerpoint slides and recording videos etc and then answering people's questions on social media. None of this made me any money, in fact I had to buy publishing licenses to allow me to reproduce the map extracts and I also invested in mapping software to use in the videos. I then started offering spot prizes for some of the tasks, either funded by myself or donated by sponsors.

I started getting lots of positive comments saying that people appreciated what I was doing and how it really helped them and how what I was doing was unique, even how it helped someone gain their Mountain Leader Award! But, all the positive comments and social media likes don't help pay the bills!

So now for a small monthly fee - the price of a "skinny mocha-chocca-chino" or a pint of "Artisan IPA" you can help me continue to create useful, informative and interesting content with regular spot prizes.

Thanks for your support!
