How To Calculate Remaining Daylight

Remaining Daylight on Your Fingers | Count the finger widths between the sun and the horizon. Each finger is equivalent to 15 minutes, with each hand totaling an hour. When the sun dips low enough that only 2 hands fit. It's time to search for a suitable campsite and assemble a shelter. (A caveat: if you're near the poles, the sun will hover over the horizon for a longer period of time, giving you an innaccurate reading.)
