Goodbye from Rich OwingsIt is with mixed emotions that after nearly nine years at the helm of this site, I am turning it over to someone else. Leaving the GPS Tracklog community is the hardest part; you have been incredible — supportive, inquisitive and always thirsting for more knowledge on all things GPS. For the past couple of years, other matters have kept me from giving the site as much attention as I wanted. But I am happy to say that I am leaving it in the capable hands of Matt Cook, who plans to keep things rolling along, bringing you the latest from the world of GPS. 

As for me, there are other things in life that I’ll be giving more attention to. And to be honest, my ADD makes me better at starting new projects than managing older ones. Having Matt in charge should bring the site a much needed jolt of fresh energy. I’m not sure what all I’ll do next, but you can sign up at and I’ll let you know when I have something to share. It won’t be focused on GPS, but hopefully it’ll be something timely that will interest many long-time readers.

Finally, I hope you’ll all stick around and support Matt. I can’t wait to see where he takes the site.
