Getting Ready for a Long Hike

This is the middle of our living room.

20120725-070840.jpgLots of reading, back and forth going on. Daily practice with using Garmin eTrex30 GPS. Does anyone else think Garmin’s documentation/ directions for using their product is woefully lacking? Anyone know of decent tutorials? Finding the steps to lay down a track isn’t even listed in the product manual!

About Tom Jamrog

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, the Continental Divide Trail in 2013, the Camino Portugese (2016), and Newfoundland's East Coast Trail (2017) . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".

    Ha ha – I got a Garmin as a gift a few years back. One look at the instructions and I “regifted” it right away…

      It is really shocking how little they tell you about a device that can do so much. I spend hours trying to figure out basic things that are not addressed in any of their support materials.
