Five years of GPS Tracklog

Five year birthday Its hard to believe that half a decade has passed, but I started GPS Tracklog five years ago today. Along the way, I’ve expanded from a backcountry focus to include auto GPS, industry news, and even a bit of Android coverage (sorry iPhone fans, there’s no AT&T reception at my house).

So I want to take a brief moment to say thanks to all you loyal readers out there and to post a celebratory track I recorded yesterday morning. I now have a newfound respect for GPS artists BTW; its harder than it looks!

Who knows where the next five years will take us, but I plan to be there, bringing you more GPS reviews, news, tips and tricks. FWIW, here’s the official stats to date:

  6. Thanks for five years of top notch info, Rich. Keep it up!

  7. Thanks folks. You humble me.

    @Mike – No second edition is planned. Things change too fast to commit to paper!
