Shaving kit? Sunscreen? No mention of junk food?

Anton, don't you have a leftover Spetsnaz list we can use?

Don't worry, Rich. The Twinkie is still in full force in Canada. Take whatever cosmetics you need, and the safe sex gear. (I remember this to be on Anton's list.)

Some Interesting Nav Aids

I've been thinking of upgrading my GPS. I've used DeLorme products for years, and have been generally pleased with them. However, they only offer units with relatively small screens, and it's become more and more difficult for me to see the screen under less than optimal conditions.

I just invested $150 in a new Lenovo android tablet. While the tablet is neither the fastest or the most powerful on the market, it's reasonably rugged, and more importantly, the GPS works without the assistance of wifi or 3G.

The unit has a 7" screen, which will be a treat for my aging eyes.

I found some nice navigational and mapping products through Trimble Outdoors:

http://www.trimbleoutdoors.com/

The navigational app appears to be functional, and has had some very good reviews.

http://www.trimbleoutdoors.com/Produ...oorsNavigator/

The mapping app allows maps to be saved off-line. Trimble offers five different map styles, including sat images. From my first tests, the maps appear to be very good quality. I downloaded the western portion on Newfoundland the other evening.

A $2.99 monthly subscription allows one to download as many maps as bandwidth allows. I'll be testing and reporting back

I'll be testing the stuff and reporting back.

I'll be interested in seeing how that works out. I have a Garmin 60csx that I bought because it allows me to dictate the route I want from my PC and load it in. The trouble is seeing it when I'm bouncing around on my crappy front suspension. I have to continuously calculate the risk of crashing against the reward of knowing where the hell I'm going. A bigger screen? Better forks? Better eyes? Screw it, I'll just follow you instead. Problem solved.

Rich,

I'm really just thinking of bringing my tablet. It works well enough for texting/emails when in the vicinity of wi-fi, and I have an app that allows it to function as a phone in the same circumstances. It would be a good idea to have one phone along, but I don't feel it's necessary for everyone to have one.
