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!

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, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . 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.
