$50 sale or trade: garmin etrex venture hc gps w/ some topo maps loaded for buyer

I have upgraded to a garmin oregon gps w/ touchscreen and mega-memory, so here's an offer: my used garmin etrex venture hc, with original software, box, and manual....

It works great, plus I will put on some topo 1:100K PA topo maps for the buyer. (these are similar to USGS topo maps and make it much more useful). For example, the etrex can hold about the amount of 1:100k topo maps shown shaded in red here:

these red-shaded areas have the topo maps on the gps now, but I can change to a similar amount of topo map coverage of SW PA, NW PA, etc. this could save you from buying a topo map.

(one downside of this model is that you can't add memory, so this all the topo map coverage you can put on it)

It definitely takes a while to learn to use the etrex, but I really like having one to make hikes faster and see my location and record it. Of course I still carry a paper map and compass, but the etrex has helped me avoid stupid hard bushwhacks paralell to forest roads etc when I am out there trying new places.

I'd like either $50 for the etrex or, if you tie flies, I'd swap it for 30 elk hair caddis with some extra light colored deer hair, flattened barbs, on slightly strong hooks (that's so they are less likely to break when I cast them on rocks!).

In case multiple people want the etrx, the first PM saying they want it gets it.

THANKS

gfen... still looking for that hardy perfect in the basement. Seriously, I'd love to have a Hardy Classic Lightweight fly rod, but I only buy 4 pc rods these days since I hike in to fish.

Flies-for-gear has been great, the flies I have gotten so far are really nice, and rain is on the way! My first trip out with bartered flies went great.

I thought that someone here would want the gps, I think a gps with good topo maps can really help you reach wild trout streams and find more fish.

gfen OK, I have found the hardy perfect in my cellar, but for that I'd need some serious flies, such as Lalique Dragon Flies :) :

might be hard to cast one of these, but some brookies would probably hit it !
