Laura, You will have noticed that I did send you a reply directly to your email... but I wanted to reply to the list to give others a chance to jump in... I am a relative newcomer to caching, and am still learning all the features of my basic GPS receiver. But the good news is that you don't need to learn a lot to get started to have fun. For me, learning GSAK was the most "technical" part (but I love that kind of stuff) and you don't have to get caught up in all the features of the program as I do. There are also a lot of very helpful cachers in the area. I think you will find a lot of people willing to help.

I am a newbie to this geocaching activity so I would like to be included in the mailings and also be in contact with people who would permit me to develop some form of learning curve. Is there any reputable course you can take in this area to become a qualified GPS instructor or be involved with a course of some kind to the dynamics of this wonderfully fun and intriguing pastime? Please get back to me and if I have somehow sent a global message, please forgive me....I have a "blonde" disability! LOL LOL :>) Sincerely, Laura Forkes PS At the present time I have been given for Christmas a GARMIN GPSMAP 76CS PLUS. JUST a F.Y.I. as far as GPS units go. ----- Original Message ----- From: Bob Connelly To: KAG Sent: Saturday, January 06, 2007 9:04 AM Subject: [kag] New GSAK macro I don't know how many of you keep an eye on the new macros that come available for GSAK , but there is a new version of a macro worth checking out. myGME v2 - GSAK Google Maps Export will make all the caches you have currently displayed in GSAK on Google Maps. What is even better is that you can easily switch from Google Maps to Canadian topo maps. It works very well. Eventhough I got TOPO Canada for Christmas, I think this will might be very useful. http://gsak.net/board/index.php?showtopic=3782&st=20& B.
