Re: Circumnavigation without instruments
I was intrigued by:
Direction, well the sun comes up and goes down and if the stars are out Pleadease (sp) alway's points east. ( I use this all the time because my compass light is still broke.)
Do you mean the Pleiades? Why would they be always in the East? Makes no sense to me. Care to explain?
The only stars I would expect to be in a constant direction is Polaris and the Southern Cross (kind of).
(I was also impressed by you knowing Thor Heyerdahl's family. Way cool!)
