It’s important to have faith in your tools. One day hunting on the top of a broad flat topped Mt. (a hill for westerners) I became disoriented because of the gray no sun weather. The way the compass pointed to go out was completely opposite of direction I perceived was correct. Even though I felt it was the wrong way I followed my compass, back to the right road. I figure it saved me 3 hours of walking down, up & down again, or all the way around.
