    Hello Klaus,

    Outstanding work! Most comprehensively structured and explained including background information such as
    longitude and latitude distances in the GPS chapter! A one-stop reference.

    Do you still have time for mountain hiking?

    Cheers
    Robert

    Hi guys.
    Thank you for your nice comments.

    Oh yes, don't worry.
    I was hiking yesterday, today and will go again on thursday.

    Best regards.

    The picture below was taken 2 weeks ago, a whole day Snowshoe hiking.
    Alpage de l'Arpille and Rhone valley.

    Fantastic work Klaus! :sign0098:

    I've just had a quick look through and it seems very comprehensive.

    Love the picture. Reminds me of a walking holiday we had in Mayrhofen a couple of years ago.

    We had much snow this winter and I was hiking too. But now I can't help waiting for the weather to get warmer.

    Hello,

    thanks for great work!

    Any chance to have it in other format - epub / mobi / rtf - to make it more e-readers friendly?

    Great documents - Thanks.

    As a beginner its so useful to have something you can print out and can study 'off-line'. Really helps to speed up the learning process (and conversion from VB/VBA)!

    ..And thanks too to all contributors on this forum - its one of the freindliest and most helpful I have used.
