GPS Use
I'd just like to add my 2 pennies. I use a sheet and compass, but always have the Garmin in my sack for that "just in case", As do i have a first aid kit, a phone, changes of clothes, a fire starting kit ( matches plus magnesium striking rods ), and a few other items. I admit it - i'm an aging scout.
However often ( if I dont own the sheet - which as there are a vast number covering this great country - i dont have them all ) I might just go out with some downloaded routes and the Garmin. - Am i a bad person ?? - hopefuly not being sneered at by those who have the sheet of an area. ITS NOT ONLY MAPPING AND NAV SKILLS THAT KEEP YOU OUT OF DANGER !!, awareness and common sense do have a part to play in mountain saftey.
On a lighter note - i'd just like to add how much the strapping on of the Garmin to my daughters wrist - so she can see the distance to a top decrease as she walks, seems to boost her drive when her weary 6 year old legs might otherwise fail !
