News For Port Loring & District
Well we are getting a touch of rain here this morning, some thunder and lightning, but most of it I am thinking went south of us this time. The last few storms went north of us. Seems Port Loring is being left out this summer when it comes to rain. Could mean though that lots of snow is heading our way come winter. Time will tell all. On another note: I bought GPS last week,a Garmin 10. Click Picture to enlarge. Took a bit of figuring, on how to work the thing but after playing around with it I think I figured out the main points of interest. At least for what I need it for. I am interested in taking co-ordinates of fishing spots and historical places. The maps for it are quite expensive I found but did manage to download a few of the inland waters around our area and one of Ontario. What I was looking for was the depths of the lakes to down load but so far no luck. I am also trying to figure out a simple way of way saving the locations that I want to keep so they will be easy to locate on the GPS. Nice thing is I can upload my data to my computer through a USB cable that comes with it. So in doing so I will be able to add them to my own maps. Great little bit of technology for sure, just takes some getting used to. If anyone has one has one of these and has conquered all the things it does, it would be nice to chat to you about things. Have a great day.
