 What’s a Birding rail? What a birding trail is NO: a trail or birds. What a birding trails IS: a route or people who wantto see birds.Birding trails are most oten driving trips with stopsat special places where birds are most likely to be seen.Each stop describes the habitat, what birds are there in what season, where to look, and how to get rom a mainroad to the location. Some trails include water routes where you can paddle your canoe or kayak to see birds;other trails include biking or walking routes. With more than 40 million people in America describ-ing themselves as interested in bird watching, birdingtrails have become big business. More than twenty states now have birding trails. Birding trails and theirbirds attract visitors to primarily rural locations, whichspurs economic development and gives local residentsincreased incentive to saeguard the natural areas aroundtheir communities and region. Te Great Washington State Birding rail currently has six routes: the Palouse to Pines Loop, the Sun andSage Loop, the Cascade Loop, the Coulee Corridor, theSouthwest Loop, and the Olympic Loop. wo moreroutes will complete the statewide trail.Go to these websites to learn more- www.seattleaudubon.orghttp://wa.audubon.org/birds_GreatWABirdingrail.htmlhttp://www.palouseaudubon.org Te Idaho Birding rail (IB) is a network o sites andside-trips that provides the best viewing opportunitiesto see birds in Idaho. With 175 sites and about 2,000miles o trail, the birding trail represents a collection o bird watching hotspots, diverse habitats, and a glimpseo Idaho’s rich natural heritage. wenty-two sites aredesignated as Blue Ribbon sites. Tese are “the best o the best” bird viewing opportunities in Idaho.Four geographical regions- North, East Central, South- west and Southeast organize the Idaho Birding rail.A state House resolution in 2006 recognizes the IdahoBirding rail as the ocial state birding trail.

(ARA) - Remember when $4 seemed like an outra-geous amount to spend on a gallon o gasoline? Now that number doesn’t seem so ar-etched. While youcan’t do anything to control the unrest in the MiddleEast or oil rig explosions that could lead to gas pricesspiking at a moment’s notice, there are a ew things youcan do to help ease the pain o high gas prices. While buying a more uel-ecient car might be an op-tion or some, new and used cars that get more miles pergallon tend to be more in demand - and more expensive- when gas prices are high. I a new car isn’t an optionor you, implementing the ollowing changes can helpensure that you get the most rom the uel in your gastank:* Keep the gas you buy in your car. When gas prices arelow, stealing gas would likely be more trouble than it’s worth, but when prices are high, it’s not uncommon orthieves to siphon gas rom vehicles, especially those withlarger tanks. Adding a locking gas cap can be done ormuch less than the cost o a tank o gas. In addition topreventing thet, locking uel tank caps can also preventanyone rom tampering with your gas tank.* Keep your tank ull. While you’re lookingto reduce the amounto gasoline you are us-ing, constantly run-ning your car with thetank close to empty can wear down your uelpump. “Te gasolinein the tank keeps theuel pump cool. akeaway the gas and theuel pump runs hot andhas a shorter lie,” says om aylor, engineerand vice president o RockAuto.com. I youhave an older car thathas accumulated dirt and rust at the bottom o the tank,keeping a ull tank can help your uel burn cleaner.* Keep your car in shape. Keeping your engine properly tuned improves uel eciency by an average o 4 percentand repairing a major issue like a aulty oxygen sensorcould improve eciency by up to 40 percent, accord-ing the U.S. Department o Energy. Te RockAuto.comparts catalog has oxygen sensors rom $10 to more than$100 depending on the car,” says aylor. Especially i  you’re a do-it-yourseler, you could quickly recoup thecost o an oxygen sensor or other repair ater as little asone tank o gas through improved uel economy.* Keep your tires inated properly. Keeping your tires atthe optimal level not only keeps you saer, but can im-prove your gas mileage by up to 3.3 percent, according tothe Department o Energy. Your owner’smanual should tell you the proper psi(pounds per square inch) levels or your vehicle.* Drive or optimal gas mileage. How youdrive can aect how much gas you use.Most cars run at peak eciency at around 60 mph, withuel economy decreasing sharply when traveling aster.Aggressive driving with rapid acceleration and slowing will also have a negative eect on your uel economy.* Reduce weight and drag. Getting rid o items such asroo equipment when they aren’t being used can help your car become more aerodynamic and run more e-ciently. Keeping unnecessary items in your car, especially i they are heavy, can also make your car work harder anduse more uel than it needs to.By adding up the small savings gained by each o thesetips, you can really notice a dierence on how much youare paying at the pump, especially over a long period o time.

GPS Allows Modern Day Treasure Hunts
(NU) - Americans may read thrillers and watch adven-ture movies, but their days aren’t exactly ueled by pureadrenaline. Tey work, drive the kids to soccer practice,eat dinner, watch HBO -- but those with a handheldGPS can satisy their thirst or adventure through mod-ern day treasure hunts, or geocaching.Geocaching is a global treasure- hunting game. Someonehides an item, uses a GPS to determine its coordinates,and then posts the inormation online. Geocache-seekersthen use their own GPS units to track down the geo-cache, usually a box or a small item and a logbook. Te game sounds deceptively simple. While geocachersknow the items’ coordinates, reaching them might requirea workout -- some locations require hiking and climbing,or example. Also, GPS units only take geocachers within10 to 15 eet o the geocache, which is hidden to avoidaccidental discovery by “Muggles” – those uninitiated inthe ways o geocaching.Geocaching.com, the largest Web site or geocachers toannounce new geocaches and log their successes, listsover 1,000,000 geocaches in over 200 countries. Te game has become so popular that GPS manuacturers arestarting to design handheld GPS units specically or geocach-ing. For example, the Magellan eXplorist GC (www.magel-langps.com) includes a seamless connection to geocaching.com,a sunlight-readable color screen and a simple user interace tomake geocachinga breeze. Te unit is waterproo and comes pre-loaded with thecoordinates o the most popular geocaches in the world. TeGPS chipset promises 3-meter accuracy.O course, the eXplorist GC also comes with standard outdooreatures, including waypoint creation, a worldwide basemap, ac-tive tracking and a trip odometer. When geocachers nd a geocache, they write their name in thelogbook or exchange one o the items in the cache or one o equal value. Ten they put the cache back in its original location,so other treasure-seekers can enjoy the thrill o the chase and,perhaps, discover a place previously unknown to them. For moreinormation about the eXplorist GC, visit www.magellangps.com/eXploristGC/.
 
Geocachers often find that thehunt leads them to areas theywould not have otherwisediscovered.

Find Your Way off the Beaten Path
(NU) - Hiking can provide hours o entertainment,healthy exercise and a chance to enjoy natural vistas --but trail blazing isn’t without hazards. Wildlie, unsaedrinking water, accidents and unexpected obstacles canall create emergencies. But with some common sense andpreparation, hikers and their amilies can saely enjoy thegreatout-doors. Here are some tips to help you prepare or yournext hike:- Plan ahead. Choose a trail appropriate or your tnesslevel, and make sure that someone knows when you areleaving and when you plan to return. Don’t hike alone.Check the weather beore heading out.- Dress appropriately. Wear boots with ankle support. I  you’re hiking in an area with dierent elevations, wearlayers so that you can remove and add clothing as tem-peratures change. Don’t wear cotton -- it takes too longto dry and can give you a chill. Pack waterproo, wind-resistant gear even i it’s sunny.- Make sure you won’t get lost. GPS devices have be-come a saety mainstay or hikers – having one on-handgreatly reduces the chances o getting lost. Te Magellan riton 2000, which was designed specically or out-door enthusiasts, oers a wide range o useul eatures,including a touch screen, National Geographic’s award- winning OPO! maps, a compass, abarometer, a 2-megapixel camera, anembedded speaker and microphone,and a ashlight. Te device is ruggedand waterproo.- Pack ood and water correctly. Plan oncarrying two quarts o water per personper day. Never assume that water is sae.I you plan to rell your water bottleson the trail, bring waterpuricationtablets. Pack oods that do not requirererigeration, like trail mix, crackers,peanut butter, and canned goods. I you’re planning onstaying out overnight, go to a camping supply store oroods designed or backpacking. You might also want tobuy mesh ood bags, which will help keep small animalsout o your supplies. For more inormation, visit www.magellangps.com.

 Te Jack O’ConnorHunting Heritageand Education Centeris rafing o a price-less commemorativeModel 70 270 Win-chester rie with apre-64 action.Al Biesen made theoriginal, one o Jack’savorite rearms, orhim almost 50 yearsago. Al’s son Rogerand his granddaughterPaula made the repro-duction being rafed. Te attention to detailand ne cratsmanshipthat went into thisrie is evident in thenal product. You cansee both the originaland this reproductionat the museum locat-ed within Hells GateState Park, Lewiston,Idaho. You can purchase achance to win the rie. ickets are only $25each or ve or $100.Only one thousandtickets will be sold!

(NU) - Whether your escape to nature involves a day o hiking, tenting overnight or RVing, a little planning willgo a long way in making your experience enjoyable. You know, o course, to bring graham crackers andmarshmallows, but your light source can make or break  your trip.Most o us are used to seeing streetlights and headlightsat night -- it’s easy to orget how dark it gets in the woods. Every camper should carry a ashlight. You will also need a larger light that provides enoughillumination to work by. Most people associate propanelanterns with the great outdoors, but these lanternsaren’t necessarily the best option. Propane lanterns canbe noisy and cannot be used in tents or campers, and you will need to pack and carry uel. Because propanelanterns produce heat, they are a burn hazard.LED worklights provide a saer and easier option. Onelight, the Might-D-Light (www.mightd-light.com),proves especially useul, as its hinge can be moved tocreate either a large spray o light or directional lightingor close work. Te Might-D-Light, which can attachto most metal suraces with its rare earth magnets, hangrom a hook or stand upright, is hands-ree, so you canuse it while perorming tasks that require both hands,such as setting up a tent ater dark or striking matches. Te Might-D-Light can be recharged with an AC/DCadapter, so as long as you drive to your campsite, you won’t have to carry batteries or uel.How can the Might-D-Light make your trip more en- joyable? It lends itsel to a variety o situations, includ-ing:
• Any activity that takes place in
 your tent or camper. Need to grab asweater rom your pack? With theMight-D-Lite, you won’t have toumble with a ashlight or create apotential re hazard by taking yourpropane lamp indoors.
• Playing games. Unless you plan on
going to bed as soon as the sun sets, you’ll want to bring games to play a-ter dark. With a hands-ree oldinglight, you’ll have no trouble dealingcards or besting everyone at slapjack.
• Keeping cool. LED lights don’t
emit heat, so using the Might-D-Lite won’t create a sweltering camp-site.
• Hiking. e Might-D-Light folds for compact storage
and is ar more durable than a propane lantern, makingit ideal or backcountry trips.
• Around pets and children. With an LED light, you
don’t have to worry about spilled uel or burns.

For Parents: Planning aSuccessful Fishing Experience
I children have un during their rst ew sh-ing experiences, there’s a good chance they’ll be“hooked” or lie.Here are a ew tips to help make those early shing events a success:
Be safe. Young children should wear life jack 
-ets anytime they’re near the water. By law, chil-dren 12 and younger must wear a USCG–ap-proved lie jacket when under way in a boat lessthan 19 eet in length. Te Washington Parksand Recreation Commission advises everyoneshing in a boat to wear a lie jacket. See the Washington State Park’s boating saety websiteor more inormation.
Let the kids help plan and prepare for the trip.
 Tey’ll eel more involved i they can help out,so give them a ew chores and let them makesome decisions.
Bring dependable tackle and give some ad
- vance instructions on how it’s used. Early morning on a lake ull o hungry sh isn’t thetime or place or a child to discover that his reeldoesn’t work or her shing line is rotten. Tetackle needn’t be new, but it must be in good working order.
Dress warmly. Mornings and evenings are of 
-ten chilly and sometimes wet, and enthusiasmcan wane quickly when eet and hands get cold.Layers o clothing are good to have, and dry clothing or the trip home is good also.
Try to ensure that the kids catch sh. For in
-stance, don’t stick to trout shing just becausethat’s what you like to catch. Young beginnersdon’t care i they catch a 5-inch sunsh or a15-inch rainbow, as long as they catch some-thing.
Be prepared to keep kids entertained in
case the sh aren’t biting. ake along plenty o ood and haveeach child bring asmall bag o books,games and toys orthose times when theangling action startsto wane.
Don’t demand per
-ection. It’s ne toteach kids how to dothings right, but givethem a chance tolearn rom their mis-takes. Let them ex-periment with dier-ent gear methods andangling techniques.
Teach good sh
-ing manners and tellthem about the im-portance o shingrules.
Start planning the
second shing tripimmediately ater you return rom therst, and take thekids shing again asoten as possible.Inormation providedby Washington StateDepartment o Fishand Wildlie.
