Trail GPS -A nice Christmas Present

http://www.durgan.org/ShortURL/?KUWOM 22 November 2008 Trail GPS (Global Positioning System)

Periodically I go into the bush, searching for mushrooms. There are usually trails, but often one gets carried away and wanders off and getting lost is relatively easy even in a short distance. I always carry a simple magnetic compass for back-up, but this is not adequate in short distances, so I carry a GPS with a spare set of batteries. When entering an area, I mark the beginning and using the GPS it is easy to get back with ease.

This particular GPS is small, and costs about $100.00 Cdn. Operation is dead simple after a few minutes in learning the various functions.
