Tanks for the GPS files

Thanks for making up this files. They will come in real handy.
By the way, which part of Wisconsin is more interesting to ride in?
The SW area along the Mississippi?

Yesterday morning, I rode the section of this loop north of I94 out of Bloomington, MN. Nice ride once you get off the slab, but both HWY8 and HWY64 have lots of commercial traffic. Two things about yesterday: Friday is evidentally trash day in the WI north woods and trash haulers enjoy the Rustic Roads as much as riders do. Especially the sections with short event horizons. Second thing was this was the middle of the Labor Day regional garage sale, seems it's tradition that the daughter with the new driver's license drives the family mini van between garage sales. Lots of opportunities for practicing evasive manuvers. Gentlemen, start your engines!

Trying to connect roads

I am inquiring since I do not have a GPS. I am interested in the South Central Loop in Wisconsin. I see the Rustic Roads listed in order. Is there a way to find the route this takes from one Rustic Road to the next (on hard copy) as I am unable to download this without a GPS.

Here's what I would do. I would get hold of copies of the Wisconsin Rustic Roads guide (free from Wisconsin Tourism) and Delorme's Wisconsin Atlas. You want to read the descriptions of the individual rustic roads and decide if you are happy with the road surfaces described. Then I would photocopy the Delorme pages with the Rustic Roads and highlight the individual rustic roads. The routes between them sort of rises up out of the highlighted copies when you look at them.

This is not a ride I would like to take tonight (1/29/08); -10F with a blizzard rolling in and I35 closed at Owatonna, but I really appreciate somebody else sitting out here in the dead of winter who can only think about getting back riding. My best to you. BTW, I graduated from Knox in 1974. Peace. love dope!

Posted maps to the thread. You will still want the DOT Rustic Road pamphlet.

Hey Guys,

I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I just got a new to me 07 KLR650 and those roads look like a blast if it can warm up a few degrees.

Eric

WOW! Excellent work putting this all together. I'm coming through WI sometime this summer and just may try to do a few of these. Has anyone strung a bunch together that are all... or mostly dirt roads?

Great work on the waypoint file!

As far as identifying gravel routes, I've attached the latest version of the file I made which lists file names with a G if the are gravel or PG if the have both paved and gravel sections.

Thanks for that! Now I just need to figure out a route that is semi-efficient that routes to all of the roads. I put it in my mapping software and if you do them in number order, its something like 17,000 miles. I did a rough grouping and got it down to like 3500, but that still seems like a lot. Anyone know how to optimize the stops with a mapping software? (I've got mapsource or whatever it is that comes with a garmin gps)
