OK so I have done a ton of scouting and have saved lots of GPS coordinates for this fall's hunting season. Now I'm scared to death I'll drop and lose my GPS and get screwed. The coordinates are worth more than the GPS! Anyone know of a website or somewhere I can store these in case I lose my GPS or it fries or something? So that I'd be able to easily load them on another unit? Thanks.

Send them to me; I will keep them safe.... Actually, I loaded mine to my hard drive. Search EasyGPS (I think that is correct) for a way to download them to a storage device.

You can download to google earth, works pretty well as backup. Also it's nice to be able to look at a waypoint location and the surrounding area from different angles and perspectives. I'm also going to build an exel spreadsheet with all my coordinates, including some notes and descriptions. I guess if a guy wanted to get real fancy he could download to g/e and then create a waypoint file with g/e images and descriptions. Just my 2 cents.......

I always write them down in my scouting notebooks and usually on my maps too. Electronics can fail, pen and paper usually doesn't.

What if you're like me, and have really bad handwriting?

In all seriousness, I'd save them to multiple spots.. An external hard drive or a thumb drive, then I'd do like Packer, and create an excel spreadsheet. Then, I'd email it to myself, so it would always be in my email inbox.
