Here it is in several formats:

Hi Mike,

I think the second Latitude numbers are a bit off. Should be N43 05.95717. This figure is using the first and third numbers which do appear to be correct. Of course if a person gets that close to the correct coordinates, all they have to do is roll down the windows and listen for the Tim-Tron  :o GPS or not, I still think I can remember how to get there.
