Forget compasses, they're strictly personal preference. But don't know if you guys read one of the most popular logs on a/p, but here's a nice video clip of ski-jouring in Canada:

Who needs grooming when you have a dog pulling?

Sorry about losing the compass... on the course? Or in your car?

I used mostly Silvia. There’s a really nice upgrade moss’s that’s about $110 or so.
I’m not sure the style, but it a clear thumb compass and it’s like the Cadillac of the Silvia.

Chi town ha ha yep grooming would have them looking more in control than in the deep stuff.
Steve W takes his dog out the dog marked trails. My dogs don’t like the cold so much.

Option 1: Go to LaBarque CA and find mine! With heavy leaf cover and a hillside to search, no hope of finding.

Option 2: On Amazon, I found KanPas thumb compasses for $16 to $28. I bought two and have used one for hiking. Seems fairly stable and quick-settling for my speed. Will bring it to Meramec on Sunday. I never heard of the brand before.
