Just A truncated excerpt from my, junk I've saved to post to my own website......someday:
"I bought a GPS in OCT 1999, before they were way cool and back when no one knew anything about them, and you could stand in one spot and log many miles.
I went online, curious about the math or geometry involved in this technology and read a middle eastern (as best I recall) mathematician convinced he could greatly improve the accuracy even though the signals were scrambled back then but Garmin refused to share their EPE formula with him, saying it was patented.
After reading they had stopped scrambling the signal I was trying to find his research about GPS accuracy to see what he had accomplished by now and found a mention about Geocaching. Now, the thought of being able to find my deer-stand or truck wasn't as interesting as being able to find even a fruit jar dropped anywhere on the planet so without having an account or ID I went and found some caches. They were few and far
in between but I approached caching in about the same manner as my first adventures on the Internet and I tried everything,.../... a regular cache.../..actually sign a log.../.., find a virtual and send../.., etc. I almost decided not to play anymore because.../..I've never regretted my decision to continue."
Live a good, honorable life. Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.
