wow! ask and ye shall receive.
eric, the upgrade rocks!
i'll take this time to encourage everyone to take GPS points of any/all of the areas you visit for these activities so i can (do my best to) make local maps of the areas to ease the searching difficulties. currently, linking train/bus schedules to the area would be a monumental task for me to figure out so any of that information should be pm'ed to me along with the Lat/Long (if it's rock or ice, please post in that section)
is an example (notice the 'approach' shot can be very helpful). suggestions to map options are welcome.
the best datum to use is WGS84 (found somewhere in settings for garmin units). if you want to use UTM i'll need more details from you.
