I'd like to have the words NEVER LOST engraved on a compass for a graduation gift.
There are a million ways to "perish", "disappear", "wander", or even conversationally "digress" in Latin. But I'm unsure of the simple "lost in the woods" variety.
"Aberrata" sounds too negative. "Deerrata", well, I'm just not sure. "Perdita" sounds too much like going morally or socially bankrupt. Not sure.
I need to get this to the engravers pronto.
Your help is appreciated.
