    However, Santa came through and delivered me my
    Garmin® GPSMAP® 60CSx

    I have managed to figure it out enough to turn it on it's going to take A LOT of work for me to get it figured out I do believe....but i'll be studying it every night while watching tv to try and figure it out...I got a few months

    Anyone else have this same unit?
    Hello Again, Couldn't help but notice the "racing" reference in your profile. Having spent a lot of time at Unity Raceway for many years, fan, pit crew and even driver in the Wildcat class, I wonder if you're related to Stan?

    I think a lot of people know Stan...and Ralph...and Dana Graves....and Boss Hogg....and I could go on and on and on....

    I remember being a little kid....in my pajamas...sitting back-to in the stands and falling sound asleep. I grew up around all the tracks and you know...I haven't been in a long long time...only to attend the monster truck show last year.

    I think it would be a blast to get a group together and head to the races....maybe even a day long thing and head up to Bullwinkle!

    CM - sounds like an event......caching pre-races, tailgate picnic, races - woo, hoo.........I'll sign up. Seriously, I would love someone to go to the races with.

    In my first married life, I was into the dirt bike, mud runs and snowmobile racing (doing it, maintaining them and the whole circuit team thing) as well as watching the cars. This was my weekend activity when I wasn't working.

    I still love to go to the track but this hubby doesn't enjoy it. Sort of feel out of place there alone. Last time I went to SW95, I bumped into neighbors who couldn't believe I was there alone.

    Soooo, if a group wants to go - let me know where to sign up.

    Count me in! Do a lap, find a cache. Repeat as needed. Sounds like fun, plus Ralph will find a race car for me to drive!

We may try one on an island on Norway Lake since I can't swim and we will be able to snowmobile to it. Caching will have to wait for springtime.
    I'm with you . . . unless the snow conditions are low to no snow I usually curtail my caching activities until the Spring (right after there's not enough snow to snowmobile and when there's too much mud to open the ATV trails). I have been known however to cross frozen lakes and ponds to look for caches however . . . just make sure the ice is thick enough . . . otherwise your swimming skills may be put to the test.

    Oh Cameo . . . you truly are a redneck Mainiac gal! . . . And you've dated yourself a bit with some of the references . . . I'm unclear about the Bullwinkle reference though unless you're referring to the B & ML RR.

    You also need to recalibrate the compass each time you remove/replace the batteries.

    He he heh....I knew I would....but that's okay...everyone knows I'm 29...

    Bullwinkle is a rush....the engines and commotion was so intense, my truck alarm kept going off....I had to move my truck out by the gate so I enjoy the action. Here's a link...http://www.bullwinkleraceway.com/
