    I also use a Garmin Etrex Legend. I've fallen in or dropped it in the water numerous times while backpacking, geocaching and photo-trekking and it's never even hiccupped. Geocaching is pretty neat - it's gotten me to dozens of great photo sites that I never would have known existed otherwise.

    I find that my Garmin Etrex is much easier to carry and operate than my analog (and potentially more accurate) equivalent - Wild Heerbrug Theodolite with wooden tripod, solar filters, ephemeris, chronograph, slide rule, etc.

    I use a Garmin GPSmap 76 (with detailed maps uploaded) when flying. It is useful for navigation especially as you can add known archaeological sites to the maps. I don't get time to add way points in the air when I take pictures, but it also records the flight track, which makes it much easier to identify the pictures afterwards.

    Son of a gun!!! Small world, Six degrees of separation, etc.!!!

    I worked in the Optical Tooling Lab in a company that had 28 (twenty-eight!) Wild T3s, and 3 T4s!! -All "analog" back then. The Slide Rule, though? - I used a Texas Instruments Ti58 (?? - something like that).

    Even with best of equipment - we had terrible trouble trying to equal the accuracy possible with a Garmin eTrex.

    Man!! - Does this bring back memories...
