      Application for Topo USA test:

      Sonjia Leyva
      San Gabriel, CA
      Geologist (11 years) life-long hiker, recent backpacker, currently a
      Geologist/GIS Specialist working with MapInfo & ArcView GIS software.

      Computer: AMD Thunderbird Athelon Processor, 512 MB RAM, 2 10G hard
      drives, plus lots o' other goodies (can you say COMPUTER GEEK???)
      Comparable products owned: Topo! Los Angeles/Santa Barbara areas,
      Topo! Yosemite, Mammoth and Central Sierra, TrailSmart: National Parks
      of the Canyon Country and the Southwest, MapInfo, ArcView 3.2
      GPS: I want, I want, I want!

      Most of my testing will be in the San Gabriel Mountains or in my
      thesis field area in the San Joaquin Hills. If I ever get a GPS, I'd
      like to test it out in my field area and see how the waypoints plot in
      the Delorme program vs. the Topo! program. I'd also like to compare
      both the Delorme and Topo! programs with the higher end GIS programs
      of MapInfo and ArcView.

      Do you want user reports on this? I already have the product. I do need to write some reviews anyway, just need to find the time. Eric

          Thanks for the opportunity to apply for this test Jerry. I have just
          returned from the Frank church-River of No Return Wilderness in Idaho and
          would have loved to have been able to use it. However, I will use it in East
          Texas in the various National Forests and Parks. Big Bend is a trip coming
          up that could really use good topo map access.
          It only took two days to fly back from Idaho to Texas. Not bad compared to
          others trying to fly last week with all the trouble at the airports.
          I would like to apply for the DeLorme Topo USA test. I have read and
          understand the requirements set out before me and will comply.
          I will submit all tests on time and if I fail to do so will mail the
          equipment back to the manufacturer at my cost.
          My name is Larry Duke and I am 54 years old. I am 5'6" tall and 160 pounds
          in weight. My experience is intermediate level with most being weekend to
          four day treks in Texas, Colorado, and just recently a trip to the Frank
          Church-River of No Return Wilderness with another friend for 6 days.
          I have hiked/camped in Rwanda, Nigeria, Russia, and Austria during the
          course of my employment, and will be testing the DeLorme Topo system in the
          Texas Davey Crockett National Forest and Big Bend National Park. Although I
          have not used this program, I am looking forward to this test to see the
          abilities of it.

          http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BackpackGearTest/files/Cook%20Gear/MSR%20Super%20Fly%20Stove/
          I have just recently completed owner reviews for the Kelty Clark Tent and
          the Mountain Hardware Conduit SL Down sleeping bag and will be posting their
          reports soon.
          Thanks for the opportunity to be a field tester in this group.
          Thanks,
