And it's very cool for all us maping and GPS trail-making nerds......Pretty cool. Last flight I took out to Vancouver, I wished I had some idea what I was flying over - never thought of the GPS....

Hey Bob - what kind of camera do you use? I've been wanting to upgrade from my Minolta 35mm SLR to digital SLR - are you using a DSLR? You have a ton of beautiful pics.

Thats pretty cool. I do the same thing when I go on trips, but I think I read somewhere that running a gps receiver on a plane is a no no (at least in continentals pamphlets). Although I haven't noticed a problem with the plane when I run mine lol.
