  don't own a GPS Big D ......
  Posted by: pilotwingz on Aug-17-10 10:42 PM (EST)
 

...... nephew has one on his CC boat for the bay (he also tried a few of the handhelds for the woods) , a friend has one in his auto (and is lost w/o it) , I've used airplane versions in the air before ... but don't own a handheld .

I've never seemed to need one , mostly know where I'm at and which way to go ... a GPS would be a nice thing to have though (as a back-up to use up front, lol) , and it could tell me where a landing is in places I'm unfamiliar with (or if I missed it) . I've depended on charts and maps , a compass and basic nav. skills , so far they've always worked .

Thanks for the coords. offer , if I ever head out to the New and need them I'll take you up on the offer then , OK ...

You ever seen the bridge over the gorge (rt.19) , the famous one ??

I'll bet spring time is a good bite where you just were ... also think that piece of water can get just as wicked as the rest in spring , if not more so ...

they say the New may be one of the oldest on the planet (like the Nile) ... don't know how true that is , but it's old for sure .

ps., ... my family are WV people , almost Heaven !!
