TIPS FOR SURVIVALISTS

There are many little clues in nature that can help you find the North.
The north star always points to the true north no matter the season.

Look for moss on a tree trunk. Mosses usually grow as far away from sunlight and are often found on the north side of the trees and rocks.
If the tree or rock is covered in moss, it will be thickest on the north side.

Direction finding

If the sun is out, put a stick in the ground and mark the end of the shadow of the stick on the ground. Wait for a few minutes; the shadow will move. Now mark the end of the new position of the shadow. The line joining those two points will run east-west.
