Bob Wilkinson talks with patrons about GPS

If you have ever asked that question, you were clearly without a GPS unit. DNR’s Bob Wilkinson was on the front porch of the DNR building discussing the ways GPS is used.

I myself am a Tom Tom owner and know the convenience of having a GPS unit in the car. Now, I just listen to Clive, the talking voice, tell me where to go. It’s a lot better than getting into a fight with the wife over a missed turn. I’ve had a few of those fights.

Using hand-held GPS units is becoming popular for use on the trails. In fact, some Indiana state parks have been known to hold geocaching contests (think Easter egg hunt, but for adults).

I also made my way to the fishin’ pond where kids were able to make boats out of recycled materials, such as plastic trays, paper towel rolls and construction paper for the sail. The kids would use string to pull the boats along in the water. This is both a fun and green way of sailing.
