Darwin Trip (June 2007)

I know its a little late to be posting details of my partner’s trip to Darwin in June nearly at the end of October.

Initially, I thought I’d leave details of any trips made without the caravan off this website, but having had second thoughts, I will now include trips made without the caravan.

What is Geocaching

It’s a high tech Easter egg hunt. Someone hides a container of inexpensive knickknacks – a cache. Then they post its latitude & longitude on the internet, and other people go hunting for it. If they find it they trade knickknacks and sign a log to record their visit. The minimum you have to have to play is a handheld GPSr (Global Positioning Satellite receiver). Global Positioning Satellites are used in all forms of navigation today. They send signals that these receivers use to figure out where on the surface of the earth they are.

After months of procrastination we finally settled on a Garmin nüvi 310 Satelite Navigation system, which we will use on our travels. We narrowed down our choice between the nüvi™ and a Uniden sat nav. The text to speech voice guidance feature made us decide that the nüvi™ sat nav was a better unit.
