We met Sunday morning at Andy's house in SE Portland, where we went over the basics of map and compass work, and after doing some exercises forged out into the field. After one or two missed turns, we arrived at Powell Butte, one of the exciting formations of the Boring Lava Field. We meandered along a few miles of trail, testing our navigational skills, until a nice woman gave us directions to the top, where we boldly summitted in the name of SAC.
