When camping you don’t always want to trust your senses when you are not familiar with your environment. When hiking some people tend to walk in circles instead of following the path. When walking from a road to a camp ground you may niyander. The reason most people nyander is because of trees, bushes, streams, rivers. So when most people should have made it to their destination because of the things in their way they might not end up where they are going to get lost. And when they turn back they will probably nyander and end up in another place too.
