    Hows about the 500,000,000th slingshot turn around while using a magellan!
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    WRONG! That would be 500,000,001th slingshot turn around while using a Magellan . . . I looked for a cache yesterday in the Bangor City Forest and kept going back and forth . . . back and forth . . . back and forth . . . back and forth . . . until I got dizzy and decided to head back to the car.

    Actually, I can think of a very historic milestone and THIS ONE IS SERIOUS! Was it not Jake - or was it someone else who had a GPSr at the Unity Racetrack to get the coords for life flight when that fellow was run over by a racecar there?

    Now, I can tell you - there are ton of FDs, EMs, and others who have GPSrs for notifying LifeFlight but many of them have no idea how they work, have never calibrated them or set them up, and how they are set to read may or may not work with LifeFlight.

    A great community service opportunity is open here folks.

    Oh - back to the tread - was it or was it not FFJ who helped in that incident?

    Actually, in all seriousness that was me . . . and I used it again while responding with Unity to set up a LZ across from the race track for an ATVer (not one of our Club members I am glad to say) who rolled his ATV and was seriously hurt.

    Jake - you point out the importance of working knowledge with the GPSr. They are a vital tool for Fire, Rescue and Police.

    Folks need to know how to use the tool before they need them. Was the last incident (ATV accident) during the past year - did you do that after 8/1/07?
