What are bread crumbs? They're little markers you leave along the trail to find your way back.

Bread Crumb #1: Web Page Link Directory

You need to use Yahoo! Directory to find links for two external (off the Trail) Web sites of interest. (As usual, Wikipedia Web sites are not acceptable.)
You must also show the directory path for the two links. You need to show the directory path from general to specific, as well the URL address of a specific site. For example, if your topic is geocaching, the path using Yahoo! Directory would be:

  • Recreation and Sports (General Category) /
  • Outdoors (More specific category) /
  • Geocaching (Even more specific category /
  • Geocaching-Garmin Style (Specific Geocaching Web site name)
  • http://www8.garmin.com/outdoor/geocaching (Web site URL address of specific geocaching Web site)

Hint: To find more specific links in a directory path, type a search term and click on the Search radio button that says, "this category." In the geocaching path, for example, type Oregon in the search box and the results are links related to geocaching in Oregon.
