Liz has inadvertently stumbled upon my numerological code... This was to be my new screen name once I'd attained total enlightenment. Of course, that can't happen until I figure out how to use all the advanced GPS functions that will help me find said enlightenment... I could just cruise to Gilbert, have a beer with Chumley and call it a day.azbackpackr wrote:PLC920483957694856749

A gps is a good tool I have a garmin 60sx and love it and it can tell me what time it is...when the sun and moon rises/sets...how far i am from something in a straight line...points of interest in an area...miles i've hiked...how fast...how much aeg...and other stuff...Do i have to have one when i hike? No Has it helped me? yesKwai Chang wrote:Thanks for the rather engaging conversation thread about the merits - or lack thereof of GPS.....no GPS for me!
I have sometimes thought that finding the beginning TH is the toughest part. Our powerful "Route Manager" really does help eliminate this problem and I'm starting to find it just as easy to post against our hike descriptions, helpful GPS driving routes as to post the GPS hiking routes. Actually, I just completed one last night (#6047) for public viewing on HAZ- Route Manager.The Eagle wrote:Also....You'd be surprised how easy it is to get to some of the remote Trailheads with a GPS loaded with a Route drawn by HAZ's powerful "Route Manager"
