I seemed to have lost my Trackstick GPS thingy. It was a gift so I think much of it. We were climbing around Main Wall on 31-Dec. I probably dropped it on either the approach (we came up from Blaine Rd) or near the wall. If anyone runs across it, can you send me a PM? TIA.

You took a GPS to Box Springs? The crag is in a county park.

It's a Trackstick - essentially a GPS receiver/logger. I leave it on my pack and walk around it with it and then download the data to my PC once in a while. You can't really use it to find out where you are - only where you have been. Is it useful? It's fun to superimpose my wanderings and cycling into Google Earth. More than anything else, it was a gift so I sort of hate to think that I lost it.

Sounds like it might be useful if you can conceal it in your teenage child's car. Other than that, I'm not sure I really need something to tell me where I've already been.

Come to think of it, I've forgotten where I've parked a couple of times, but I'm not sure I'd start carrying a GPS receiver just for those occasions.

Cool. Hopefully enough people feel that way so if someone runs across it, that person will try and return it.

The bad news is you're like the 10th person in history to climb at Box Springs.

Oh come on Jay. Let's face it, everything is gps now. I use one so I don't get lost walking out of my house.

Hopefully he get's it back.

One parting shot for the OP, the more shit you hang off your pack, the more you're gonna lose.
