Not really as long as you pay attention to your map. :-)

Lots of people do much of their navigating by keeping an eye on campsites and islands.

You don't really get lost, but you might get misplaced for a little while until you look around and match up the area with your map.

I've helped many people over the years that were temporarily "misplaced". Worst case scenerio is that you might have some extra paddling to get back to where you want to go.

And that has made all the difference.

I've been "misplaced" a couple times myself. One time it was a nice surprise. I was on a trip with my youngest daughter & we made a turn around a penninsula too quickly and ended up in a narrow bay. While looking at the map we heard rustling and spotted a number of blue heron nests in the bushes nearby. :-) And we were only 10 minutes away from where we were supposed to be anyway.

Good point, Lynn. Every corner whether intended or not, can bring a pleasant surprise or adventure!
