Sure, no problem. Figure each gps reading has a 100yd error range, some
caches have multiple points..so we are talking each point widening the
radius of error and before you know it you might as well say " east of the
pacfic and west of the state line..."

Its bad enough folks dont do averagng on thier cheapo little yellow etrex
before makring a reading.....

Been there, done that, got the merit badge and im still able to call
up the skills.. but this is a fmaily outing and  I know the limits of my 8
year old. I have scouted out some Letterboxing  sites that have some good
caches to head for.
