Frederick Out and Back (118 miles for me) - Two Parts

I haven't figured out what to say for the two parts, yet, nor have I added the pictures that I took of Bob and John and the places that we stopped.  The pictures will be added once I get home (since they're on my camera's memory card) and upload them to Twitter for linking into the blog entries.

The GPS signal reflections off of building in downtown Baltimore are very evident from this screen capture. See how the blue line wavers in and out even though I was traveling straight up Lombard Street on my way to Greene Street.

I thought you were using cell phone tracking, in which case this is not a GPS signal problem.
If using a GPS device then it indicates a poor satellite lock, and not reflection.  I.e. the device can't see all satellites it is using and cannot accurately position itself.

My cell phone is using A-GPS (assisted GPS):

Whatever the case may be, it's interesting to "see" the phenomena.

Pictures have been added to Part 1.

Do a "mouse over" to get a partial description or click the picture for a larger version and full description.

Part 2 has some cruft about how Murphy attempted to sabotage my ride and my return home.
