another Garmin eTrex Venture HC lover here. I am technologically challenged and can manage it. I also started using it taking the kids out Geocaching. Its also reasonably priced.
We've pretty much found every geocache in our entire area here, and my hubby goes crazy because everytime we go camping with the horses, I'm always loading up waypoints into my Garmin so that I can go find them on horseback in the state parks and such.
Love it! AQHsam, you should try a little geocaching in your area and see if anything is hidden on the trails you ride on! Or at the very least, in your neighborhood - it would be great practice with your GPS and fun, too! Here's the link since I made such a big deal out of it...LOL!
