Until I can go caching again . . .
Today I owe thanks to the person who drinks Bud Light. Since my last walk down the road to the west, many more of these cans had been tossed out of a passing vehicle. Those cans might have equalled half of the cans and bottles that nearly filled the kitchen-sized trash bag I filled up on my five . . . or was it only four . . . mile hike today.
Before setting out today, I reset the Trip Odometer. This time, the GPSr was located face up on my small fanny pack, so I thought it would get the best possible reception. I walked down to the two and a half mile mark and back, but the Tracks show that I only walked four miles. I know that is incorrect because I've measured the distance in my car before.
On my walk almost two weeks ago, in the other direction, the Tracks recorded 4.6 miles when the distance, according to the Trip Meter on my car, is five miles.
Here is another Profile for that walk with the GPSr held face up. The Trip Computer said 5.4 miles. The actual distance is five miles, and the Profile says it is only 4.4 . . .
So . . . it used to be I trusted the Track distance more than the Trip Computer. Now I don't know which distance to trust . . .
