    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    GPS
    We got a Garmin Legend CX handheld GPS unit today. Sophia wanted to start geocaching. I always like gadgets. It will be fun to be able to geo-encode photos, plot trips on the map, and do all sorts of wacky route calculation things.

    One of the first things I did was go look for better maps. There are free maps out there. I picked up San Diego, Austin (our next getaway), Denver, and Seattle. LAX and SFO and Chile will be next.

    Google maps can export a single landmark into the unit. And you can export geocache locations to the unit -- along with it recording that you found it. I want to put some in for Austin (both landmarks and geocache locations.)

    One of the coolest things so far... it new about Sipz (vegetarian food) and Thai Time. I also suspect we'll get something made up to celebrate our LAT/LON. We're both map geeks.
