For some reason I want the next tulips to come out of the top, like i was riding up on them. tulips exposed from the top, almost like a GPS in 3-D mode.

Personal preference.

I found a gate and a tank trapped road on State land myself. I did discover that Rally wheelie's are a bit sweeter than your garden variety wheelie's however I pick up the iPad tomorrow and with luck the mount will show before this weekend, so I can start writing the route. My riding buddy also has an iPad and is going to download the app and help me out. Even if the routes are crappy, it's a good start!

Yes, ORGA (the outfit behind the TUAREG Rallye) and some other German organised rally events, use a roadbook format that goes from the bottom of the page and reads upwards;

Or the old-school kind...you can still find these on old battlefields in Europe. If you're ever on the North Shore of Oahu you can see some of these on the reef off of Aweoweo Beach Park as engineers practiced placing beach obstacles there during WWII.




I'm guessing that both of these would be !! or !!! on a roadbook.

A huge mound of dirt piled up with a bulldozer in these parts. One at the entrance isn't enough to stop us on bikes but 10 in a row seems like a good indication that they don't want you there I was on the 390, so I could go over them but didn't want to push my luck.

Wow, very cool. I think they call the one above a dragons tooth.

As someone who has played around with gmaps and android app development, I've been reading through these threads with interest. I've got a couple of ideas on a workflow, but have never written a roadbook myself. I'll try writing one using local trails, to see if I can narrow down the process. I'd be interested in discussing it with others that have made them before to see if I'm on the right track ().

I'm going to work on mine this weekend if you feel like riding a bit? Having you involved would be great, since you're good with computers. I've got some 390 stuff for you.

I recruited 4 people to make routes up here, I just need to order some RB holders for them. Once I describe the process (what little I know), people get all excited about making RB's. That's Roadbooks, not roast beef
