Re: [gpsstash] A Must Read


I'm heading out on a new adventure vacation tomorrow into the remote
badlands of Eastern Oregon. I have 1750 waypoints stored in my GPS to cover
the trip. Mines, Ghost Towns, Hot Springs, Geothermal sites, Historical
Sites, and Monuments. Got the RV loaded, and a covered trailer with three
dirtbikes (with GPS mounts). Me and my buddy Don will be setting out to
create a new GPS game that doesn't use stashes and is simpler than
GeoCaching.

Right now, I'm calling it Wonderts! Wonderts are Wonderful Waypoints that
take some GPS skill to find. Wonderts are the Wonders of the World stored
as waypoint coordinates. It will be interesting to see how many Wonderts we
can find.

The Wonderts game is simpler than Geocaching because you don't have to leave
something, take something or write anything in a book. All you have to do is
experience the Wondert !
