November 6th Marooned without a Compass Day

So imagine you are marooned on an island and you don’t have a compass. The horrors! Which is worse, being marooned or not having a compass? You will need to practice your orienteering skills… of course you may need to figure out what orienteering means! A few things you can do is look up at the sky when you wake in the morning. The sun will rise in the east and set in the west. You should be able to figure out what direction is what by that. If you are still confused you can look for a tree and find the moss growing on it. Generally, the moss will grow on the shady side of the tree, the north. I think my biggest question wouldn’t be what direction was what…You are on a island, no one is around so what difference does knowing what north is? Well, at least finding north would give you something to do.

How to celebrate – Find your directions without a compass. Buy an extra compass in case you lose one. Avoid wearing red in any shade.
