turn http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System The GPS project was developed in 1973 In addition to GPS, other systems are in use or under development. The Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS) was in use by only the Russian military, until it was made fully available to civilians in 2007. There are also the planned European Union Galileo positioning system, Chinese Compass navigation system, and Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System. Although four satellites are required for normal operation, fewer apply in special cases. navigation shamblesguru & outside mobile

Larger containers such as plastic storage containers (Tupperware or similar) or ammunition boxes can also contain items for trading, usually toys or trinkets of little value.
Geocaching shares many aspects with benchmarking, trigpointing, orienteering, treasure-hunting, letterboxing, and waymarking. Terminology http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geodashing#Terminology Waymarking Geodashing GPS drawing http://www.shambles.net/pages/learning/ict/gps/ I have a little Sat-Nav
It sits there in my car
A Sat-Nav is a driver's friend
It tells you where you are
I have a little Sat-Nav
I've had it all my life
It’s better than the normal ones
My Sat-Nav is my wife
It gives me full instructions
Especially how to drive
"It's thirty miles an hour", it says
"You're doing thirty five"
It tells me when to stop and start
And when to use the brake
And tells me that it's never ever
Safe to overtake
It tells me when a light is red
And when it goes to green
It seems to know instinctively
Just when to intervene
It lists the vehicles just in front
And all those to the rear
And taking this into account
It specifies my gear.
I'm sure no other driver
Has so helpful a device
For when we leave and lock the car
It still gives its advice
It fills me up with counseling
Each journey's pretty fraught
So why don't I exchange it
And get a quieter sort?
Ah well, you see, it cleans the house,
Makes sure I'm properly fed,
It washes all my shirts and things
And - keeps me warm in bed!
Despite all these advantages
And my tendency to scoff,
I do wish that once in a while
I could just turn the thing off.
