    GPS anyone?

    Do any of you guys have a GPS? Dont know if you have heard of this before but GeoCaching is huge. If you hike and like the outdoors this is so fun. Caches are placed all over the world...probably even in your own neighborhood. We found one this past weekend. What a laugh.

    By the way...im in the market for a GPS. Ive been using my dads, so if you know of a good one...or .. one to stay away from let me know.

    I have a GPS and now and then I go and find the cache's it's alot of fun. Actually Costco had the color magellan on for just under 300 awhile back but it had none of the stuff that comes with Nelson's and the mapsend program is 125ish so with everything else that's a heck of a deal
