it would be nice if navigation and first aid had their own folders in the skills section.

thanks.

We have the Bush Medicine section <http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29 > in the Skills area, and that would certainly seem to answer for the First Aid request.

As the "Other Skills" section currently specifically mentions navigation, I have to wonder if there are enough navigation related threads to require a separate section.

i don't consider "bush medicine" the same as first aid but perhaps i'm an outlier on this, though it is a significant field of study in its own right.

navigation is ALWAYS an under-treated subject. navigation can include GPS, phone based location services/apps, EPIRB, compass, maps, trip planning, wayfinding, celestial navigation, and improvised tools (sun compass, plant and animal directional information, etc.) just to name a few.
