Heres what I do GS,
Open the original file you want to change. Now click on your route tool in Mapsource. Start re creating a new route, going over the original where you want it to remain, then changing it where you want. When finished you'll now have 2 routes, the original and the new one with your changes. Delete the original and now you only have your tweaked route.

Looking at my GPS track profile (60Cx so altitude derived from GPS signal) we hit 11,500 ft at Boreas, but 11,970 at Indiana Pass.

Good thing I said around...... What's a couple hundred feet when talking over 11,000?

Agreed. He did ask for "highest" though I had never gone through my altitude profile so I wanted to look anyway.

Read your ride report on twtex, man I want to go again

Sitting in Rawlins for the night--thanks for posting the .gpx it has made following those Adventure Cycle maps sooooo much easier--kind of like you were along giving me pointers as I try to follow the instructions. I rode the NM part in June and started at Roosville the first of this month headed south--still have Colorado to do and then decide if I'm going to redo NM. Again thanks for posting your track.

Hello BigDog.

I've just started your CDT ride from North to South. I've got your .GPX files.
I've finished the first two days and am now near Basin MT.

The trail has been great so far, and I'm taking a lot of pictures.
A detailed scenic Ride Report will be submitted this Winter when I'm not busy riding.

Thanks for the Ride.

I'm currently planning the southern half of this route. Halfway between Grants and Cuba, NM is a red flag labeled washout. Is this something I need to detour around? Is it passable?

We went through there in '07 with no problems (I see the waypoint in BigDog's file you are talking about). I can't remember seeing a specific washout. I wouldn't detour around it, just be alert.
Maybe someone has more recent info though...

Here's my friend Steve standing in a hole we did find. Can't remember if it was on that exact stretch, maybe further south.
I was first on it and rolled across the little land bridge between the two holes

Wow, riding into that may have ruined your day. What bike is that with the Kolpin packs on it? Was the extra fuel needed out there in NM? I'm thinking about one for my DRZ.

I was thru there last week and I ride out there all the time. I have NEVER been unable to get thru. That said--the road(s) are dirt and not regularly graded or maintained in some areas. There will be washed out areas, bolders in the road--it may still be there-- and generally knarly conditions.

If it rains it turns to muck and you had better be on a good dirt bike lightly loaded with knobbies or you will find the going next to impossible. After a rain it generally dries out in a day or two leaving ruts and washed out areas. Keep your eyes open for undercuts and gullies.
From last week.
