A walk recorded

Shira and I took a walk tonight. But to where you ask? And what route did we take? Why, I'm glad you asked. I brought along my new GPS to give it a try and collected some data. I then found the site www.gpsvisualizer.com which takes geo data and maps it for you. The result are some maps below.

So far, I really like my eTrex GPS. It's very basic and very durable - which is exactly what I wanted. It also connects up a computer with a variety of software, which I have yet to try, but am excited to.

Tonight, I manually entered coordinates into gpsvisualizer - though that will get old quick. I'm hoping that I'll be able to slurp a single file from the GPS, and create images like the one below in just a few steps.
