GPS Products

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.

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.
