Maps vs. GPSr

For years, decades actually, I religiously carried a map with me on just about every outing unless it was particularly short. An older GPSr that I had didn't have built in maps and wasn't much good for anything except getting me back in a white-out. Then I got one with touch screen and built-in maps and wow, what a difference. It's been about four years now since I last carried a printed map with me ...

Predicting Time and Pace

I've frequently been asked the question "How long should it take me to climb X"? Of course I can't give a useful answer without having a pretty good idea of the fitness and skill level of the person asking the question. Guidebooks and park hiking guides typically give very conservative, pretty slow estimates.

Peakbagger hacked

Peakbagger.com is down - apparently hacked. Of course, I see a lot of Chinese language characters in this forum, so it concerns me.

How many of you use the geolocation based games INGRESS, MUNZEE, or GEOCACHING to inspire and motivate you while out hiking?

I have recently started playing INGRESS resulting in me hiking up parts of Mission Peak in Fremont, CA 3 different times now. I find the feeling of success to be a great motivator. I find that the support I get from other players in the area encourages me to do more!
