Due to the fact that the state of the environment only gets worse over time, people more often tend to get to nature from noisy, smoky cities. However, do not forget about the danger of getting lost in the forest. Even if you go to nature with a big friendly company, you need to know the basic rules of conduct for good luck if you get lost.
It would be ideal if you insured yourself in time and took a compass and a map of the area with you. But if the trouble caught you off guard, you need to navigate the place where you are. The most important thing is not to panic, otherwise you will start to fuss and go even further.
If you don't have a compass, you need to find out where north and south are in other ways. This can be recognized by several signs. Moss usually grows on the north side. The crowns of trees are much denser from the south. There are more spots on birches from the north. However, you should pay attention to these signs only if you know which side you came from. In this case, after finding out the directions north-south, it will not be difficult for you to understand where is west and where is east.
If you have no idea where you came from, you will have to look for other ways. Try to climb the tallest tree. From there you can see a gap or, if you're very lucky, a road. Listen, you may hear the noise of a passing vehicle or train. If you hear the murmur of a stream, you can follow its course. It will inevitably fall into the river, and from there it is easier to look for people.
Look around, perhaps there is a path somewhere. The easiest way to find it is in the fields or near rivers. When there is neither one nor the other, you have to rely on your attentiveness. If you find any road, you should not immediately follow it. If it is narrow and you have to wade through branches, it could be a forest animal path. Try to remember the road you are walking on. It is best to look for unusual or very large trees and stumps.
