Kentucky covered bridges

Here are all the waypoints from the remaining 13 covered bridges in KY. They are linked together by a route that uses all backroads. This is a very senic ride that takes you back through the 1800's and is big bike friendly.

I've downloaded and viewed other GPX files but I can't view yours. Any hints?
I'm planning on doing the One Lap of Kentucky next year and would like to see a few of the bridges.

I'm old and slow and finally viewed it by this method:

A (really) quick way to look at GPX's attached to threads

A handy way to visually inspect the GPX files attached to any thread on the forums is to use the 'bookmarklet' from advmaps.com (a side-project of mine).

1 Check out http://www.advmaps.com/
2 Click 'About'
3 Drag the bookmarklet to your bookmarks toolbar

Now, just click the 'View GPS on Advmaps' bookmark whenever you're reading a thread with a GPX attachment to pop open a new window showing the GPS data.


Thanks to gfinder, it really works slick.

I had problems downloading the GPX file also but he sent it to me via email the viewer trick you just listed is fantastic!

Here is the last one in SC, built in 1909. I'd upload a photo but not sure how yet.

I'm from Fleming Co. It's the covered bridge capital of KY.

I'm from Goddard...it's one of the few bridges in KY you can still drive over.

It looks like this attachment (along with many others) got lost in the server upgrade. If you try to DL, it just downloads the .gif image.

Jeff, anyway you can edit your original post and delete that attachment and try re-attaching it again? That should fix it since you'll be re-attaching to the new servers now.

If anyone wants to send it to me, its my username here at gmail.com.

Thanks,

Dan
