Lost? No Compass? No Worries!

Older style compass.
Lensatic compass
Forgot your compass?  Are you lost and without a compass and need to find the way home?
Here's an idea from our new project in the works, Camp Help.
While this may be a problem for most folks, if it is sunny at all you can find directions easily using the track of the sun across the sky.
Place a stick in the ground and mark where it creates a shadow.  Label this with a W.
Then wait 20 minutes or more. Sit and eat a snack.  Enjoy the view.
Now, place a mark at that new shadow and mark it with an E.
The first mark is to the west, the second mark is to the east.
