Kids gathered around you whenever you stopped, and were fascinated with anything you had (especially candies and pens). However, our GPS receiver was a particular hit with them. Here Jim is showing them the map on the display.

We used the Garmin 12XL to record our position every 500m, and used the data to plot the maps, such as the one at the beginning of this photo album. Once our whole crew got lost in the woods, but not Ian with his GPS receiver !
