Everyone has great advise. I have had my Garmin ETrex for over a year now, and it is a wonderful device. I am a bit old fashioned and I like backup plans, so I will never rely soley on a GPS for navigation. I prefer to use my paper maps and visual references and verify my position with the GPS. Nothing beats a GPS for keeping tabs on how far/which direction you are from your vehicle and finding your way around at night (provided you input your waypoints).
