About tanZ LLC

tanZ Navigation is my umbrella company that I use to host rogaines and trail runs, sell compasses (and now books), and anything else navigation-related in my world. I am starting to make maps as well. I also publish a blog on (map and compass) navigation called Navigation Tips.

Short Bio

I did my first adventure race in the Fall of 2000. Since then, I've done over a hundred more adventure races and quite a few solo rogaines. I'm often the navigator for my team, though not always, and rarely for an entire expedition race. I love to be out in the woods with just a map and a compass (and my dog). There's something very satisfying about finding one's way across a wilderness area - whether on or off the trails. For me, it doesn't get any better than bushwhacking across some diverse terrain all night long heading for a hard-to-find checkpoint. And I seem to learn something new at every event I attend.
