Re: [gpsstash] Cache vs. Stash


Hi all-
My name is Darin and I'm new to the list. I have been involved with GPS
since before it was know as GPS, on the military side. I am also an
instructor on GPS systems in the military (PLGR, E-PLGR, HAVQUICK, etc.). I
think you guys are on the right track and I'm looking forward to getting more
involved.
I have been reading your posts about the name. Frankly, I don't care what
It's called. But if you ask me, something more discriptive yet uncomplicated
would get my vote. But, like I said, it really doesn't matter to me. And I
think once the name gets out to the greater civilian GPS user community, it
will get much more popular, regardless of what you call it.
I have realized what a great asset GPS is to all. I wish that someday GPS
will be a household name. In fact, when I transferred to other military units
who where not up to speed on GPS, I would give a short demonstration to
Commanders using a NON-military receiver (Magellan GPS 2000). I would say
that not one commander could come up with a good reason for not
requisitioning them through supply. Most units I left were fully GPS capable
and trained.
My point is this- The more people we turn on to this, the more the sport
will grow. Have you told all of your friends about this?

Gotta go.
Darin
