Also for some odd reason I keep expecting ~somebody~ to comment on the contest site's choice of GPS brand and to comment on the fact that he has one JUST like it Wink Does this give him an edge??


For some reason, I hadn't seen this thread before, and I just checked out the website. Wow, I recognize that GPS! What a great looking piece of electronics!

I wouldn't be too proud Jambro. Their coords have been consistently off by about 50 to 100 feet during the contest(Seriously)! On the other hand, you probably would have won everyday! Wink

Has anyone heard about anyone other than the FTF person winning a prize from this? I've seen mention on their site that other people have, but they aren't naming names like the FTFs.
