Ahh...Different strokes for different folks.  Don't venture out lacking a sighting mirror on your compass or you will surely die!!

Actually, I go for years without pulling out my compass, going entirely by terrain association, which works quite well in the bumpy terrain I frequent.  Reduced visibility due to fog, etc. will get me looking at the compass.  i can recall only one occasion where  I navigated with a compass in good visibility.

Things are quite different when at sea, however,where objectives my be out of sight or obscured by fog.  I am constantly on the compass then.
