Interests listed alphabetically: including Links to Web Pages that I find useful.
Amateur Radio - callsign N7YIU
Computers and Networking - if it's technical, I like it.
Hiking - Mostly day and weekend hikes, I don't like marathons
  • The USGS Geopgraphic Names Information System provides a great query form for finding the location of just about any feature you could imagine. What I like most is that system will give you the name of the 7.5 minute map(s) covering the location of the feature you are looking for.
  • Find the distance between two latitudes and longitudes.
Fishing - I like fly fishing and most other types of fishing.  My fishing page has pictures from some of my fishing trips.
Mountain biking - same comments as for Hiking

River Running - mostly canoeing and kayaking, but I also do occasional raft trips.

  • The USGS Water Resources provides a great real time stream flow data which is great for checking the flow on your favorite river.
