Well, today for fun I drove Mom’s truck out to my Fayette land and got waypoints for my corner markers. I used my new Garmin GPSmap 60cs, which is more accurate than my older Garmin eTrex. The map was created on a free version of TopoGraphics, so it’s not of the highest quality. Hopefully Richard can help me create a higher quality image with his GIS software. I’m hoping to use the waypoints to get a rough estimate of acreage.
I couldn’t wait this year, and we all agreed to open presents early (Dec 23rd!). One of my present from Mutti was a complete Geocache kit. It is a Rubbermaid container with a notepad and a slew of “Maine” theme items (it’s in the house, and I can’t remember them all specifically). My plan is to hide this cache in the Adirondak Mtns in New York on my way through there next week. So far, I’ve never hidden a cache. I have located caches in Florida and Maine. You can check it out at Geocaching.com. My screen ID is cash_to_cache. Mutti’s ID is mamm_cache_elliot (I think).
