A few years ago our youngest son downloaded info onto his PSP from Google Earth and used it for a cross-country (think of mountain foothills here!) trek to another small town about ten miles away (one way). It was twenty miles, cross country round trip! Must be nice to be young!

Congrats n the GPS and knowing how to use it. I'm doing good to set my camp location and find my way back there!

With mine I found out it was easier to get the heading I need to follow from the GPS and then use a compas to follow the heading. Most of the terrain here is heavily wooded and you couldn't walk a sraight line if your life depended upon it. The constant twist to go around trees, etc. drives a GPS nuts if you're trying to use it like a compass.
