Look here for GPS tools specially for the hiker: I've found that using my GPS while hiking in the mountains is a very frustrating experience - lost signals, terrible tracking, inconsistencies... So I'm creating some software for the GPS enthusiast/hobbiest for creating, editing, fixing, modifying GPS tracks. Specializing in repairing partial tracks, tracks with bad or intermittent signal. Track averaging. Combining several partial, incomplete, or marginal tracks to create one correct track. Keep an eye on this space.
Here are various reports from hiking and skiing trips that were otherwise memorable. Hope you enjoy them. Please email me with comments. Most but not all include GPS waypoints and tracks and other pertinent GPS info, often maps as well.

TNAB hikes TNAB hikes
The Thursday Night Afterburners hiking group meets Thursdays (see TNAB) afternoons during the "season" (most of the time, sometimes even in the winter). We hike mostly in the I-90 corridor east of Seattle, WA. These tend to be steep, relatively short, more challenging hikes. Here a list of of the common hikes we do w/ maps, GPS tracks, data, and waypoints : TNAB hikes.
