After checking with the wife she reminded my that we only have one car, she and Andy are not too keen to hang around Googong from 8am till luynch time.redphoenix said:What do you reckon Ash, would the wife be interested in a similar option?
Those combined beam figures are not at the racks Red.redphoenix said:155cm total with both yaks. The Forester has around 130cm of roof rack space at a guess, so probably barely do-able, with some creative strapping and some padding. Let me know if you'd like to give it a go - .
Thanks, you might have saved me some $$$, still thinking of one of the cheaper handheld GPS, some I have looked add you need to buy maps to add on etc etc......might start up a new thread about this......redphoenix said:Nah, I pretty-much guestimate, based on landmark sightings. Google earth allows me to twist and turn the landscape around (and even shows mountains in 3d), which helps me remember.
I've used a GPS and computer in combination before, for security-related wireless wardriving scans, and found it to be a very cool toy.
If I ever find a nice hard-to-locate fish-producing reef on the south coast, I reckon it might be worth plonking some money down for one though - at the moment, I can get by with just dead-reckoning.
I think there's even a few GPS/sounder combos out there, with marine maps inbuilt. Probably a bit large (physically) for the yak though.
Yeah, in-land........you don't happen to know the model/make of that one?paffoh said:But for for $200 more ( $500 approx ) you can get one with all maps built in including all in-land lakes, rivers... everything!
