    You can make a good guess at your your direction providing the sun is shining. The sun always rises in the East and sets in the West. If you face towards the sun at midday you will be facing due South. Therefore your back will be facing North. Using this as a template you can find the general direction you want to travel.

    Using the sun or perhaps moss on the north side of a tree. Moss is tricky though, because after many many years it can go to the southside as well.
