I have to agree with Postholer.  My family followed my hikes intermittently, but the minute they were able to follow my route it became daily.

More illegal activity on PCT than CC route for me.
It was a nice stroll into Lordsburg.

I hear ya'!

Gimme a plain old paper map and compass. GPS or not, I'll carry them anyway.

Here's the deal. Data is required to build maps. A google trail map with 
the MyTopo overlay and way points is a FANTASTIC planning tool and day 
dreaming escape.

Further, nothing keeps a journal reader involved in your journey like an 
interactive map with your location frequently updated.

The postholer.com server logs scream this fact. I can tell you first 
hand that hikers planning their trip and journal readers LOVE IT!

So if you see a hiker on the trail with a GPS, not only is that hiker 
staying found in a way that suits them, they are potentially taking 
hundreds of cubicle dwellers along on their hike.

You can't imagine what this does for promoting and acquiring supporters 
for your favorite trail.

GPS is a good thing!
