fun date idea : Use just a compass and a map to get to someplace cool

Plan a date that doesn’t involve technology.

Many people use Google Maps, iPhones and other gadgets to get from place to place. Here’s a date idea that will build your knowledge of navigation, as well as help you have fun together!

Do the following: 1 . Find a destination an hour or two outside of town that is accessible by car. It should be somewhere you’ve never been before, so you can see new places together. 2 . On a sheet of paper, draw two lines down the middle, creating four columns labeled “Before,” “During,” “After” and “Details.” 3 . In the Before column, list everything you’ll need to know or do before leaving on your date For example: Pack a snack -Pack a date picnic to have after arriving at your destination. Gather all travel materials together -Check the map, compass and gas tank before you leave. 4 . In the During column, list everything that will happen on your date For example: Get lost –You’ll be surprised how different a familiar route looks when you’re going in a new direction! Navigate with just a compass –Make up stories about where the moss is growing on certain sides of trees as you hike to your destination 5 . Under After, write what you plan to do or see once you arrive at your destination For example: Take pictures–Capture both of your reactions after finding it 6 . Finally, in the Details column, jot down any other information that applies to your date. For example: Drive –Make sure you bring a car that can handle dirt roads and any other conditions that might come up 7 . Have fun on your date!
