I’m Mike Spaulding, and if I had to choose one adjective for myself it would be “outdoorsman”. I love being in nature in all types of environments. I live in Idaho, so I am fortunate to have access to beautiful forests, mountains, and rivers. Being an avid hiker, hunter, fisherman, and nature photographer, navigation is important to me. I started seriously researching GPS units in order to buy one that would last me for several years. I decided to blog about what I uncovered so that I can hopefully help other people find the best handheld GPS unit to explore the outdoors safely as well.
