I have more than 15 years of backpacking experience. Day hikes and 2-3 day backpacking trips take place on most weekends throughout the year while longer trips are only occasional. I backpack predominantly in mountain terrain (Coast Range, Cascades and Canadian Rockies) with the goal of summiting peaks. Activities I use my gear with include mountaineering, ski touring, rock climbing, kayaking, biking, trail running, Search and Rescue and overseas travel. I like my gear to be reasonably light, convenient and simple to use though I would not claim to be a lightweight hiker.
I am rather embarrassed to say I'm part of Search and Rescue and I don't know how to use a GPS. This would be a great opportunity for me to learn and reinforce why I should know how to do this and have fun doing it. This weekend we had a call out and when asked who on a team of 7 had the knowledge of using GPS, amazingly only 2 people did. Next time, I'd like to be one of them! I'm not a techy and would be very honest in my review on how easy or difficult it was to follow the instructions. I have a computer to support the downloading and I would like to see how this looks and represents my trips. I would use it every chance I get from SAR activities to my planned backpacking trips in the mountains and explore all its features. Maybe I can even map my routes in Scotland this summer.
