Ocklawaha River
from Gores Landing to Eureka

Even though I can't pronounce the name this is still one of the prettiest rivers that I've paddled in Florida. That I helped clean it up a bit by picking up some trash and met a bunch of nice people was a big bonus. We saw lots of birds and some small alligators.

Garmin GPSMap 60CSx

A GPS system that's really useful for trails and streams. It can be used for highway navigation but I don't really reccomend it. It will lay down tracks, including elevation, for every place you go. You can easily mark waypoints (where you are right now).
This is the unit that produced all the tracks and waypoints that you see in this section of the website.

Garmin Nuvi 350

Garmin Etrex Legend

I used to own one of these and replaced it with the 60CSx for a lot of reasons but primarily for the color screen that my aging eyes could read.

A great GPS unit primarily for hiking and biking. Will record tracks, ie, where you have been. Will help you get back if you get lost. Not suggested for road navigation but can be used for that.
