Why?

The excuse for a walk outdoors. Some new "toys": a Garmin eTrex GPS receiver and a Sony Mavica FD-83 digital camera. Discovering that all benchmarks are now listed on the Internet and that most haven't been "recovered" in many years. Might as well do something useful as a reason to go for a saunter. After you turn 50 nobody cares if you do goofy things anyway.
