Weekend Reflections


Last weekend I found this little piece of equipment....I have had fun  with it all week, learning how to program it and also finding out the "Waypoints" of the real owner. Instead of a "Home" marker...there is a "Barn" one. It is the only word in the GPS unit.
As I drove to my barn the other day..I had the unit on and it counted down the miles and pointed the way to it's owner's "Barn". I got within .60 m of it...though it looked to be pointing me into the woods.

As I headed out last weekend...little did I know that my reflection here , on my car outside the barn, would be used with the Garmin one above!

Today, after I trim my mare toes and fit some new hoof boots for her to try out, I  mount up and ride out to find the O counter mark..that is what will occur if I actually make it to the "waymark" they have placed. I will have stealth and Mace handy...you never know out in the country, what you'll find. I had this thought- that because it said "BARN"- they were okay people..but one does not know that....as someone recently reminded me.

  8. Love the creative reflections! Interesting GPS search, hope it's a fun discovery! I must have missed something, how did you come upon the unit?

  9. Fun shots! My gut says they must be OK if they put "barn" in as their home base. But indeed, be careful where you wanter. If you find the owner, and then decide you need a GPS of your own, you will be a bit more educated on what you want after your free trial of this unit! lol

  16. I thought the first was clever, but the second it even better. I wear a similar vest when I ride my motorcycle, so you've given me some photo ideas, thanks!

  17. I see you! The second one looks like an abstract painting!

  19. I love your shots from on top of your horse. I have just happened along here via a shadow shot sunday blog visit. My brother has just bought one of those GPS units and I was having a look yesterday. They look great fun. I like the way the colours in both photos have links.

    Please don’t feel like you have to do it - especially if you have already won a zillion times!

  21. Oooh, an Etrex! I've heard good things about those - they've got some features that are better than mine and some that I don't like as much. I hope you love yours! If the "barn" is a "field" of "green plants," you should ride away very quickly!

    Love the car reflection picture.
