Three members went for a walk in John Forrest National Park in preparation for the Navigate in Urban and Rural Environments (NURE) course coming up this weekend. It was a good walk, and one leg had to be changed due to recent fire activity in the area.

The track is shown below from NURE4 in a NW direction. They were supposed to go to POI027. This will be a “Dip-Stick” award nomination for sure…
