Thanks for all the great feedback - off to Baja with a new gizmo

Thanks to everyone who emailed me and commented on the blog post for the great feedback about my new website. I have not had time to return all the emails but will try to get to that as time permits. We are leaving today for our trip to the Sea of Cortes with  American Safari Cruises . I wanted to map our route on google earth, and record GPS locations for favorite photo spots and map them on google earth, so I got a Garmin Forerunner 205 GPS watch. There is the ability with this little gizmo to mark waypoints for future reference and map them onto google earth with a freeware program called GPSBabel. I can also map gps routes by using a free web program called Motion Based. The great thing about this approach is that I can use this all with my Mac and do not have to hassle with PC software. This watch will also tell me speed and distance covered on my various jogging / biking / xc skiing routes.



I will be going from Loreto Baja straight to my presentations at Calumet in LA and San Diego, so please stop by either of those events if you are in the area.
