My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: GPS mod

I wonder what happened to david drake? He was so angry. I worry about him. Hope he figures things out.

Re: GPS accuracy
I think part of the problem isn't the "wandering" when taking a break, but that the software incorrectly tries to correct for this, so it's a software bug But, what difference ...

Re: Garmin
One way to check it is to walk a straight line, like 1 mile. Like along a straight road. The real distance is the distance between the beginning and end. You can compare this to the odometer and...

Re: Re: Garmin GPSmaps 64s and 60csx
My Garmin 60Csx has the same issue The Odometer can be +-10% off, 25% is unusual but maybe the worst When I download a track and analyze it with Mapsource, I think it's more accurate ...

Re: Re: Re: Elio Motors
I disagree with shifting from per gallon to per mile In general, wear on the road is more proportional to amount of gas used than number of miles. Heavier vehicles cause more wear, and use more...

Re: Elio Motors
and with cheap gas again, now is not the time to launch fuel efficient vehicle. Everyone's (foolishly) buying big SUVs again. Gas will go back up again.
