Experience Colorado

January 28, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments
Experience is not what happens to you; it’s what you do with what happens to you. – Aldous Huxley


The best I can do with what I recently experienced is to be happy with what I have and not be envious of others.  Yes I am talking about the new Garmin 400t GPSr.

The 400t

Saturday the Troopster and I went to a Garmin and Groundspeak meet and greet at the humoungous REI in Seattle.  Garmin was showing off the new Colorado 400t GPS.  Jeremy talked about the history of Geocaching and his latest invention WHEREIGO.  I participated on the beta for Where I go over a year ago.  It is a pretty cool gaming idea.  If you combine the mental interaction of an adventure game such as Zork, the human interaction of the Wii, add in the outdoor enjoyment of Geocaching, you have an interctive experience called Where I Go.

I see me!

The Pocket PC + GPS gives you a platform for building games that know where you are, when you enter areas, and where you are going.  Create a script and some nice images and you have the "Choose Your Own Adventure" book that puts you in the driver seat and gets you off the couch and into the real world.

Gadget Envy

If you know me, you know I am slow to upgrade and even slower to open my wallet.  The good news is that I have moved beyond my first free GPSs, and even past the second and third GPS’s I bought.  I now have the Garmin 76CSx which is its own masterpiece.  For better or worse in this case, the 76CSx is an awesome GPSr and works so well that I won’t be able to justify moving into the more advanced hardware for quite some time.  I have no doubt that I will be able to live vicariously through friends pretty soon.
