Fayette Land Waypoints

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).

    That’s cool, I like the aerial map. Now you know what your land looks like to a bird. So how much land do you have after all?

    It is a nice unit. The autorouting sometimes seems flakey, but for the most part it has performed well. I would certainly recommend this unit. Check around on the internet. I paid too much getting it at West Marine, but it was convenient.

    The Garmin Map 60CS is a nice unit. The autorouting feature is great. Wish I had one.

    Very nice… I’m glad you’ll be taking the Maine cache out of state… And you were really close as far as the geocache name, mine is MamaCacheElliot 🙂
