In an olive grove near Lopera, Spain.

I was in Spain having an adventure with my eldest. It involved driving from Barcelona up to the Atlantic coast, and then south to the Med coast, and back to Madrid. So many opportunities might present themselves.
The 19th was a drive day, from Granada in the heart on Andalucia to Cordova. The hash was on the way, if we went that way. It was South of E-5, near a place named Lopera. Olive groves for Km in all directions. Easy walking between the trees. A sign seemed to say that the area was open for hunting, so I guess hashing was OK too.
We were challenged by lack of mapping, and lack of my trusty PN-20 GPS. So we were using the ipad GPS with the Spain NavMii app for our driving guidance. It suffers from open source maps that are not particularly good (for Spain, anyway). And Motion X's GPS HD for walking adventures. It can download Bing or Goggle maps and/or imagery, but needs a WiFi connection. often missing. Also loaded on the ipad was Hunter Researches Theodolite, which geotags photos. when I remember to turn it on.
