in the early days of this room we talked about such things as gps scuba diving and gps sky diving. now every one seems so serious. come on lets put some humor into gps
the thread about Ausie Karen cracking me up? That was at least a little fun.
...skydiving and scuba, and tell us your success. Add some photos of your experience, as you plummet at terminal velocity of 120 MPH (and praying your parachute opens), and that'll be some great shots to put on this website.
Maybe we should follow Miss POI's lead, and instead of just having smelly locations, we could have great wildlife sightings along roads (moose in Maine, gators in FL,drunken politicians driving in to the tidal basin in D.C....)
Do you mean to say that POI Factory is now old enough to have "the good old days". This month marks our first year in operation.
now this is the spirit.
that little lady say " Recalculating" at 50 ft scared the hell out of me, but I pulled the cord anyway
...that smiley face of yours always greets me when I log on and see what impish humor awaits me in poiville. Now me, I'm sort of like an energized dog: 1 poi year ages me about 10 years. Sure do have lots new gray hair in the last year to prove it too.
Little did I suspect when I became one of your first users, that I'd still be hanging out among you poi corn folks a year later.
As for Robert: I was wondering where you'd disappeared to. You're another early person on this site who did a lot of posting 50,000 gray hairs ago, and I missed your presence for a long while when you did a Houdini on us it seems.
Now, where did I put that case of Grecian Formula 15?
lets all go scuba diving and dont fog ur mask if u do u might get lost and yes "queen of gps" u now have old days lol
I'm a newcomer here so I can't comment on The Good Old Days, but I can comment on using GPS and Scuba.
I volunteer with an organization that does eelgrass habitat restoration in Narragansett Bay (Rhode Island). One of the things they need is to determine the boundaries of the eelgrass beds, particularly the deep edge, which is typically in 15-20' of water. Unfortunately, the vis is often only 5-10', so you can't "just look" from the surface.
The Old School method to survey was to anchor a 300' tape measure on the shore and take a position with a GPS, then a scuba diver would swim on a heading perpendicular to the shore until they reached the eelgrass bed, then they would continue, noting major changes (such as the end of the bed) on a slate. Then they'd swim back and reel up the tape, move the anchor about 50', repeat. This gets very tedious for a bed that is a couple of hundred feet long.
I talked with the coordinator and found that they are most interested in the outer edge of the bed. Being a lazy sort, I put my trusty old eTrex into an otter box, attached it to a float, and swam the outer edge with the line to the float as taught as I could keep it. Then I downloaded the information and exported the path as a kml, so they could see it in Google Earth.
I can't get any more fun then what I already am, without being a complete dumb_ _ _. I already breath GPS and Radar
now now remember we have to play nice lol
Happy Anniversary Queen of poi from one of your cornerstones! BTW it's about time for an updated pic eh? How bout one with you wearing scuba gear and a gps watch? We gotta keep Bob happy ya know!! Oh and happy anniversary to Jon too the reigning King of poi!!
Recalculating, Please Drive The Highlighted Route
LOL...I have actually verbally assulted "jill", telling her shutup, cause I know where I am going. Just like my wife, she keeps talking anyways.
Ok, want to hear something funny.....
Last night my daughter wanted us to create a bedtime story together, she would start it and I would add, and then she would add, and so on. Here is how she started it...
Once upon a time, Winnie the Pooh went out and gave everyone a Pro Laser III (Speed Measurement Device) and a GPSr, it was the new 700 series...
I guess I talk more about GPS and RADAR then I thought.
I would be willing to bet that if I compared how much time you spend on this site against any other member, you would be shown as the most addicted:)
I love that story;)
Umm....please don't share that information to my employer...lol.
I tend to have an addictive personality when I find something interesting. I get all involved in it, past the point of simply using the gadget.
OK I have to ask - I have been trying for the past months to determine what L O L stands for and I still can't!!!
I am sure when you tell me I will look stupid but, please.......be nice
LOL - Laugh out loud
ROFL - Rolling on the floor laughing
IMO or IMHO - In my opinion or in my humble opionion
GPSr - GPS receiver, your unit, not the entire system
BTW (by the way), you could have simply asked instead of wasting brain cells trying to figure it out...lol. We won't laugh at your questions! ROFL. But that is just MHO.....ROFL
rofl...my arse off while peeing in my pants....
Now THAT is how one responds to something REALLY funny.
Ok, so what is "arse"? or do I really want to know...rofl
Tuchus. The back of your front - the fleshy part...the permanent vertical smile....
Yeap, I was right, I didn't want to know...lol
Wow! we really got off subject here! Well, I guess not, since it is all fun.
now iam happy. remember rule 62 "dont take urself so damn serious"
62? From what source? I don't know this rule...lol.
the secret of rule 62 is that the 1st 61 didnt work. so the canceled them and put in rule 62 lol
When all else fails, X=8.
now u got it
Now I'm lost...again
