Hi from Southport
« on: November 27, 2013, 12:00:57 PM »
Hi all,

First post to introduce myself. Located in Lancashire and have been walking for 40+ years. Walking mainly throughout GB and occasionally Europe but have now realised that at 66 I am at an age when fitness and stamina are declining and they might not get me out of trouble. Thus it might be sensible to improve my navigational skills to avoid problems and also to learn more about the potential of GPS. Hoping to benefit from your shared experiences.

Hi Motorlaunch,
Welcome!
Yep, there's lots to learn here (I have)! I'd recommend you set aside some time to trawl through all the back-posts (may time a while as there are lots!) and you'll soon get a feel for the wealth of knowledge & experience that the folks on here have and share!

Welcome motorlaunch ! A bit surprising to read "...mainly throughout GB and occasionally Europe..." => you see, here in Belgium we are taught that GB is part of Europe  ;)

Hi boogyman,

Should have have said "mainland Europe"  :-[

Hi Motorlaunch and welcome!

Just back on the block so going to catch up with what look to be some great threads.

Cheers,

Hi Motorlaunch, everything navigation you will need here. (Motorlaunch - have you got one by the way?)
