Mission Statement
任務声明

Having a strong back, mind, spirit, soul, and body, to taking safety into consideration being necessary in the outdoors.  We share and learn the tricks of the trade to getting along in the outdoors.  We give up a bad habit and replace it with a healthy one.  Understand the co-existence of man and nature.  Give opportunities for people to learn about the outdoors.
安全な旅をして、強靭な体と頭脳を皆さんに外の世界を教えたい。悪いことはやめて、何か良いことを始めます。人と自然は、共存しています。皆さんに外の世界を教えます。

History
履歴
Pinneshiri Mountain-an inactive volcano standing at 704 meters has been climbed by many people who visited and live in Northern Hokkaido
ピンネシリの頂上で704メートルです。沢山、北北海道地方の人と旅する人が、ピンネシリ岳を登った。


PODUNC was founded in 2009 by an Alaskan who came to Japan to teach not only English but exchange cultures.  America and Japan have a different language and culture though they both have at least one thing in common: mountains, rivers, oceans, wildlife, and many many activities.

Japan is one wonderful nation with a deep embedded history of beautiful arts, food, and sports.  Did you know that Japan had a gold rush?  Japan also has some snow that would delight any sportsman.

PODUNCは2009年に英語だけではなく、文化交流で教えに日本に来たアラスカ人によって設立されました。日本とアメリカは山、川、海、と野生動物などは共通してるけど、文化や言葉は違う。

日本は美しい芸術、食べ物、およびスポーツに歴史がある素晴らしい国です。 あなたは、日本がゴールドラッシュを開いたのを知っていましたか? また、日本では、どんなスポーツマンも喜ばせるくらいの雪も降ります。


Location
浜頓別町の隣町です

The PODUNC is located in Hamatonbetsu浜頓別, Hokkaido北海道, Japan日本.  Some neighboring cities are Nakatonbetsu中頓別, Otoineppu音威子府, Esashi枝幸, Toyotomi豊富, and Sarafutsu猿払.  Really, Pinneshiri Mountain is located about 10 kilometers south of Nakatonbetsu.  We invite all people to join in and share their input.
ところで、ピンネシリは中頓別から十キロ南へ。 本当にアラスカから来たALTが浜頓別に住んでいる。けどピンネシリは良い山だ。


Looking north, Nakatonbetsu is in the valley behind the deciduous tree.  Hamatonbetsu is just beyond that next to Kutcharo Lake and the Ohotsuku Sea.

What is it that we want to accomplish?
何が知りたい と したい?

Like the mission statement says, we want to do all of that plus more.  There is a wide range of skills and knowledge that will take generations to teach and learn.

Why start the Pinneshiri Outdoor Understanding and Navigation Club?
なぜ ピンネシリ 部(クラブ) を 作る?



There are many reasons to start the PODUNC.  One of the main reasons this club was started is to give people in Northern Hokkaido a chance to learn about the outdoors.  It is very fun and interesting to be able to use and understand all the gadgets used to navigate outside your home.  These are skills that people need.

Exploring the outdoors in groups has many benefits;  safety, learning and 
overall enjoyment. If you get caught on the mountain after dark, a
friend can help keep your spirits high. If you are injured, your
partner can assist you back to the trail head. And animals are more
likely to stay away with bigger numbers in your group.

PODUNCを始動するには多くの理由があります。 このクラブが始動されたという主な理由の1つは、外に関して学ぶ機会を北北海道の人々に与えることです。 あなたの家の外でナビゲートするのに使用される機械を使用して、理解できるのは、非常におもしろいです。 これらは、人々の協力が必要です。

グループで外にいると、多くのいいことがあります。 安全、学習、および総合的な楽しみ。 あなたが日が暮れてから山に迷ったなら、友人は、助けてくれます。 あなたが怪我しているなら、あなたのパートナーはあなたに手を差し伸べます。
 
Added to doing activities in groups leads to interesting communication.  The founder speaks English and is learning Japanese so he would like to not only learn more Japanese but give people an opportunity to use their English.
 
加えて、グループで活動をするのは面白いしコミュニケーションが通じます。 英語を話して、日本語を勉強して、より多くの日本人を教えるだけではなく、彼らの英語を使用する機会を人々に与えたいです。

なぜ ピンネシリクラブを作る?
1.皆に 外の世界を知って欲しいです。
2.皆さんで山へ行くのは、一緒には安全です。
3.英語と日本語 で 話します。

Staring draft for the…

Pinneshiri OutDoor Understanding and Navigation Club

ピンネシリ 部(クラブ)

(PODUNC)

 

Pinneshiri:                  N 44°52'20"     E 142°13'2"

Hamatonbetsu:           N 45°8'0"         E 142°23'0"


Have not quit yet implemented these but would like to do them down the road.

What we do:

Classes-maps, compasses, GPS, safety, avalanche, awareness

Sponsorships-host races, activates, outings, trash pick up day, eco-workers

Meetings-make events, plan, party

Allow people to teach their outdoor trick and trade.  Hunting and skinning a deer or wind surfing...etc.

 

 Maps

 

座標変換


座標 Latitude and Longitude   1 degree=60 minutes  1 minute=60 seconds

Conversion- degrees, minutes, seconds to decimal minutes and vice versa

N 65 30’ 30’’  First, divide 30’’ by 60(60seconds)(gives decimal minutes)

N 65 30.5’       Then, divide 30.5’ by 60(60 minutes)(gives decimal degrees)

N 65.508333’

N 65.508333’  First, multiple .508333 by 60(60 minutes)(equals 30.4980)(the 30 is your minutes)

N 65 30.4980’ (multiply .4980 by 60)(gives you minutes)

N 65 30’ 2988’’ (notice that you have a longer decimal answer from the original)(this is because we had to carry out more numbers when we divided)

 

More on Lat and Long (distances between lat and long for each)

Earth’s diameter           = 7,926 miles

Earth’s radius               = 3,963 miles

Earth’s circumference   = 24,901 miles

1 degree of latitude      = 69 miles

1 degree of longitude   = At equator 69 miles, At 40 degrees N/S 53 miles

For every degree moved N or S, the Longitude lines become closer by about 0.76miles

1 minute of Latitude      = 1.15 miles

 

Slope

Rise over run, rise divided by run, height divided by horizontal distance:

Find the section that you want to calculate on the topographical map

Find the elevation from the top of the section to the lower using the topographic lines(this is your rise)

Measure the distance in a straight line of that section(this is your run)

Make sure both your measurements are in the same format(meter-meter)

Divide the Rise by the Run

This will give a decimal of 100 and not 90 degrees

To get to degrees you need to multiple that decimal by 90

This will give you degrees

 

Trip planning by map


Topography

Saddles-lines do not meet, like empty space

Peaks-usually represented as circles

Close lines-steep

Distant lines-gentle

Lines that make a U/V where the bottom is pointing to the tip of the mountain is a valley

Lines that make a U/V where the top is pointing to the tip of the mountain is a ridge


Distance

Kilometers and miles

1km=0.6214miles

1mile=1.61km

3.28 feet = 1 meter

5280 feet per mile

2.54cm=1inch

1cm=0.3937inches

 

Pace count

Per x distance

Up hill and down hill are different

Stepping over logs and rocks are different

 

Temperature

Celsius and Fahrenheit

C=(F-32)*5/9              You can multiply by 0.55 (5/9)

F=(C*9/5)+32            You can multiply by 1.8   (9/5)

 

 

Scale

Look on the map for a set of numbers that looks something like this: 1:63,360 (this means that 1 inch of map equals 63,360 inches of true earth.)(63,360 inches = 1 mile)

1:50,000 means 1cm of map equals 50,000cm of true earth distance(500 meters)(2cm=1km)

 

Declination

check this site out for a world map of declination

Changes around the world due to the magnetic pole the earth heaves on your metal stick

 

Triangulation

Take compass bearings from points you can see.  Plot them on your map.

 

Compass

Azimuth (shooting)

Back azimuth

Declination

*True north to magnetic north

 

GPS

Operations

Up/Down

Star navigation

 

Weather

Read the weather at the beginning of each meeting.  Look at the weather charts in the link at the top before going out.  Plan your activity according to the weather.

 

Stretching

Emphasize the importance of stretching.
