Periodically I go into the bush, searching for mushrooms. There are usually trails, but often one gets carried away and wanders off and getting lost is relatively easy even in a short distance. I always carry a simple magnetic compass for back-up, but this is not adequate in short distances, so I carry a GPS with a spare set of batteries. When entering an area, I mark the beginning and using the GPS it is easy to get back with ease.

This particular GPS is small, and costs about $100.00 Cdn. Operation is dead simple after a few minutes in learning the various functions.

So, are you saying since you went somewhere new or some where you shouldn't have been you think we all should get us a GPS from you? I see the link above in your post, but I am not going to go there, because I don't get lost on my own land and if you are on a public trail you shouldn't have left it. That's the rules, don't leave the trail. The public trails are general like 10 foot wide eassment.
