Good for you BooCrew. I like working things out for my seft too.
My Garmin GPS12 is heavy but I like the goto funtion plus it holds 4 AA's
It doesn't have maps so I've never had to figure out a car mount. I did find a snap pouch at a gun show ($2.50 I think), that fits like it was made for it. I think it may have been for a radio.
My new Maggellan Meridian Gold is lighter but much wider and flatter so maybe will be much harder to fit (at my cheeeeeeper is better price)
The mounts and pouches they sell for it cost a lot and high S&H prices just irk me. I will take it to the Hunter Expo end of this month and see what I can find but the gun shows have a lot more stuff to experiment with.
No SD I don't think micros rule, I think they hurt. Just before the event I filed my first "DNF" because of a micro. Went back and got it the next day after the event and had no trouble finding it. I guess most caches are hid as well as the last person who was there wanted it to be but some people are just devious with them.
Edit : I had one tooooo many A's in the bats
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
