Okay, the 'Sasquatch' tracks were old snowshoe impressions but I can fantasize can't I? I have been in situations on the water where I was disorientated for a time in the fog and darkness. Now I found that not to be pleasant. It's not that I can stop the kayak and get out and walk around or make a fire. Again, there is a thread I made on here somewhere about navigating blind on the water. Haven't gone over a waterfall or sucked over to Portugal......yet.

Found the Night Navigation post:
Been blanketed in fog more than a few times as I used to have to take my younger sisters 15km by boat into school each day.
There were a few times my bearings were off slightly and became lost, I was always more scared of someone not heeding the conditions and going too fast to spot us in time.
