Trips 'n Treks
TRIPS & PHOTO FILES
Trips with Russell have become fascinating because not only does he know the area, but he knows many different approaches and county roads that are not on everyone's maps. When he finds an interesting landmark, he jots down the GPS readings for future references.
He also has a lot of stories that need telling.
It seems that some Apple Computers can't read WMV files
