With technology organizing and managing our everyday activities, it is no surprise how we rely on our phones for everything. We used to memorize phone numbers and events but now thanks to Apple, the iPhone does it all for us. Relying on our memory to navigate our way home or remembering what path we took on the trail is just not necessary anymore, especially with the navigation capabilities and applications of our phones.
However, thanks to the Appalachian Mountain Club http://www.outdoors.org/ here are 4 reasons to why you need to use other navigational devices other than your iPhone.
Be a smart Nordic walker and take on the trails a water proof paper map, compass, extra batteries and a note left behind saying where you went and when you will be back.
