    Yeah, going into this whole GPSr and geo-caching thing I realized that the Garmin folks really seem to outnumber the Magellan folks . . . but I liked the look of the Magellan Colour screen (I'm mesmerized by pretty colors), price on-line and the map program that came with it as I originally bought the GPSr to do some maps for the ATV Club and Snowmobile Club . . . and to track where I've traveled . . . figured the geo-caching thing would just help me justify the purchase.

    Oh and as for bad habits . . . I've got a lot of 'em and buying Magellan is the least of them!

    Actually I did take a look at them and really liked them . . . a lot more pretty colors . . . but the cost was a bit more expensive than what I was willing to pay.

    I figure sometimes it's nice to be different.

    Incidentally I once worked down at Stonington a long, long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Actually it was my first job out of college. Commuted back and forth from my camp in Thorndike to Stonington -- 3 hour daily commute. Ended up getting done due to a) the long commute and b) I was working for a trade publication for commercial fishermen and I knew next to nothing about the fishing industry . . . and in fact I don't particularly care for fish other than fried scallops -- at an industry trade show that I attended with the company we went out to dinner and I think I was the only one eating something other than fish for the main course.

    Default hey!

    there's even more than 2 of us! ffj, i know the fisheries paper you are talking about it's okay to like just fried scallops! my list isn't too much longer than that i drive an hour each way to work (i have worked in bangor and bar harbor - those were 1 1/2 hour drives each way) i can't imagine a 3 hour drive - thorndike is a long drive! and g-team, i'm happy to know you are magellan owners! we're a whole crowd now!

    Default Welcome Jake

    Hey Jake, I'm coming back to Central Fire for a few months (or years). When I'm not out saving cats and damsels, and your not out scaring kids, we'll have to hide caches for each other around the station.

    I've thought of one or two places . . . but thought having a bunch of geo-cachers roving around the outside of the station might not go over too well.
