How you been? still kickin it I see!

I'm with frank, technology should never be a replacement for training. Look at what GPS systems have done to the art of orienteering. Should the batteries fail, guys get lost.

I agree but technology advances. Look at motorcycles. I don't see you opting to continue to ride without rider aids to help with your ability

High and low speed compression dampening, steering dampener, multi piston braking, fly-by-wire.

All kinds of rider aids come stock

All I'm saying is technology advances and usually in the direction to make it easier on man.

Humans, in nature, are some lazy bastids

I think its pretty cool. Bring on technology I don't feel like shooting a musket because I feel rifling is taking away the skill of the smoothbore .

Indeed. I believe in redundancies, be able to navigate with your brain and a map if your gps goes down. I'm all about new and better tech, anything to let me focus on the more important tasks at hand...
