Again, I drew the tracks based on the current GDR maps (or on paths that I worked out for things not on the GDR maps) and later verified what I drew against my active logs.

You are very welcome. As you know, I routinely share a lot of GPS information with my fellow riders.

It would not surprise me that many of us would end up on the same paths since there are only so many ways to go. Where I worked up stuff apart from the GDR (like in Canada, for my side trips, or for my return to Wyoming from the south end) I drew my tracks based on a map recon (that I later verified on the ground).

Keep in mind that my tracks vary from my friend Mark Sampson's tracks and the active logs of those that rode his .gpx in several places. This may be due to updates to the GDR route or my use of some of the alternates that he did not use. That is the reason I added his track segments to the segments I have in the planning file - so people could compare his to the current route and alternates.
