Familiarizing yourself with your surroundings is a must when you're outdoors. If you can do it with streets, buildings and roads; you can do it with trees, slopes and the likes.

Definitely being familiar with your surroundings and looking back and where you have come from is a must. I've been turned around coon hunting at night as a kid in our own pastures until the fog lifted enough to see tower lights or I got enough elevation to identify landmarks.

If you're going into unfamiliar territory Google Earth is a good tool too. I try to do some long range scouting this way and mark some key points on my map I take to the field. Also know how many ridges,creeks, etc you have crossed. Many places if you stay in the same canyon heading downstream will get you to a road eventually.

very solid advice. You have to pay attention and keep looking back so that you will recognize the area. It always looks different from different angles/distances.
