I attended the navigation workshop at Mt Barney Lodge during July. It offered fantastic value for money with attentive and constructive instruction from Innes. Yes, the concepts and equipment were a little challenging in the first instance for the navigation neophyte, however the ability to apply my new knowledge on a couple of subsequent (guided) walks was so helpful.
The MBL facilities were, as always, clean and tidy, and the team's assistance was super friendly and helpful. In fact I left with a sense of having been extended the hospitality of a family! On a freezy cold night in the middle of winter, the camp grounds were fully booked and the atmosphere very jovial.
I would recommend that future participants take an extra day following the workshop and put their new found skills to immediate use with a self-guided walk.
To Innes, Tracey, Nea, nav. classmate Hamish, and the rest of the MBL team....thanks again.
