Not going to buy one. If what I have works, I'd just as soon have the money for ammo.

But don't listen to me.

I'm not into the technology for some things. But I did made a "pocket DME" in college. The base was a cribbage board, on one end was a kitchen timer, the other a rotatable knog and wrapped around stragetically placed cribbage pegs was taut wire, which was hooked into the kitchen timer and the knob. On the pegboard were marked distances and wind speeds. By carefully selecting where the wire was placed, based on wind and distance, and
t u r n i n g it slowwwwlllly you'd wind up the kitchen timer. Thenit was time to take off.

When the kitchen timer went off you were at your destination! I would have been rich. . had it actually worked (me. . .sectional. . looking down. . . WTF??!!!!)

Strangely I've been in the same place, except without all the Mr. Wizard stuff. I think they sell special sectionals to those of us who have no sense of direction. Still it's nice to look outside when you're flying.
