As you may have realized by now, I am a big promoter of hiking and exercising in the great outdoors. In 2010, technology and nature collide (and I am not taking about the oil spill, that’s a whole other story). Now smart phones like the Android, Blackberry and iPhone allow you to map your hiking and backpacking trails using GPS and geotagging.
