Right Fork of the Holly River

The Holly River is "the definition of a Class II river" according to Richard Hopley, aka OC1 Kanubi. What a great way to start the boating season, lots of eddy turns or not as you choose. Beautiful scenery and clear water.

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.
