Did you get a GPS for Christmas? A GPS is a great addition to an adventurous RVers toy box. For starters, you can join the fast growing sport of Geocaching (see May 2008 edition of RV Life, page #42 http://www.rvlife-digital.com/rvlife/200805/) It is also a huge help with navigating in the backcountry when combined with online services such as http://maptech.mytopo.com/onlinemaps/index.cfm and http://earth.google.com/
On either of these sites just do a search for the place you want to visit, hold the cursor over that place and record the displayed coordinates. Then it is just a matter of loading the coordinates into the GPS and let it point the way. You will be surprised at the forgotten sites you can discover along the route on your RV travels.
Play around with these sites over the next week and be prepared to put your new found skills to the test next week!
