I walked to the airport again more or less by accident, just started walking and that is where I ended up. However, this time I had my Magellan Explorist 100 GPS or Global Positioning Satellite toy with me.

Now I am back trying to remember how to put these little degree marks into my website, I am able to type them in this page, however if I blog by email, or blog on blogger.com I believe they appear as funny marks or characters.

I really enjoy figuring out this type of organization, I do not like entering or figuring out how to navigate from one point to another, as it seems insanely boring. However, I enjoy learning a way to capture data; I say capture, as data or information is an allusive type of information. There is no end to the ways of losing it, inaccurately logging it in, or the ability to be sloppy.

I believe I am very good, I know I am very good at entering data; checking, double-checking, quadruple checking my information. I used to layout with a transit 100,000 square foot building for large construction jobs, one mistake would cost thousands of dollars. I do not remember making any mistakes in two years or layout for concrete work.

This information above could be used in this way, a person gets off a plane, and they already have created a coordinate to the Casa Nadines Guesthouse. The person turns on the GPS and lets it warm up, track a few satellite, this takes about 5 minute or less, then they can get their bearings. With the GPS toy they can then figure out, it is close enough to walk, do I want to walk, which direction do I walk, and then make a choice. Now a good map would or could stop all this deliberation, however a map is many times missing what I want, has what you want, for sure it has a 5 Star Hotel on the map, however for the 20 Dollars hotel, nobody seems to care, a few guidebooks, however, generally it appears the little people like me on the planet are going to have to capture this data and enter it for the cheapies hoboes to share.

It is very easy to find anything if you PAY your way there, one of the arts of travel is to figure it out. 1.6 Miles as I walk at about 2.4 miles per hour as I have learned with my GPS means it would take maybe around one-half hour for me to walk to the Casa Nadine Guesthouse. I am paying myself now about 16 U.S. Dollars and hour to walk. There are very good reasons not to walk and one is the risk of getting robbed with everything you own on your back, for me this is a lot of money, computer, cameras, hard drives, memorabilia, cash, etc. However, 90 percent of backpacker probably has less than 500 Dollars worth of hard to replace gear.
