..... leap into the 21 st. Century!

Bought a Magellam eXplorist GPS. One of those really little buggers. No plugs for power or computer or antenna, just your basic unit.

Entered in all of the Co-ords for the Oodnadatta Track last night, so.......... all ready to rock 'n 'roll.

Funny thing though........... where I live, it can't pick up enough satellites, because we live in a gully with a cliff & stuff, so I went to the oval, and took my dog, Kobi.

Normally we walk 2 - 3 laps, clockwise, but the little bugger was all confused, 'cause I was walking in triangles & stuff, totally ignoring him.......... poor little bugger. My head was permanently bowed down over the GPS, and I never gave Kobi a glance. He stayed by my feet through ALL of the triangles I made, and even backtracked with me!

Here's the thing........... I even set a POI ( waypoint ), where he dumped on the oval! Now I can see if he does it there again, and if his nose is more accurate than the GPS.

Wolfie, I reckon that waypoint may be for you to return with a poopascoopa mate, the boys and girls don't deserve your dogs pile!

Since Dad didn't have a plug to connect up to the computer, Kobi thought he'd lay some cable.

From Adealaide, drive northwest on Port Wakefield Road and Highway 1
At Port Augusta turn right
Stick to sealed road to Quorn, Hawker, Leigh Creek, Lyndhurst
At Lyndhurst keep on going on gravel road to Marree
Drive out of Marree and on to Oodnadatta Track

Grasshopper, you are not being helpful to Wolfie in rationalising this purchase.

Suggestion: Maybe Mrs Wolfie could enter some waypoints to help Wolfie when he is groping in the dark.

There, that is how to make a helpful suggestion.
