There are two steps to figuring out what direction to travel:
- Orient map (relative to yourself not the terrain) with the direct of travel (typically from where you are to the next control - often marked with a pink line on the map) facing out from your bellybutton.
- Rotate yourself as a unit with your map until the map is oriented using a major linear feature or several point features. The direction you are facing is the direction you want to go.
