Works fine on my old iMac (2007 model)

I received one file called BRT.722.zip when I unzipped it it contained 3 files:

BRT42011.kml dated April 22, 2011
TBRT.722.500ptmax.gdb dated July 22, 2011
TBRT.722.Raw.gdb dated July 22, 2011

I imported the raw file into basecamp and it contained Gas locations, campgrounds, and a lot of tracks (No routes since they are somewhat dependent on the maps they were created and many GPS devices will recalculate them and change them)

NOTE: You need to IMPORT the gdb into BaseCamp and not try to OPEN it with BaseCamp.

Here is an online preview of the route for anyone that wants to desk browse. Explore the different layers - I really like My Topo - great maps.

Thanks for all your time and effort to put this together Error Cooled!

Please send to:
nickdigg@gmail.com

E.C. specifically asks when he releases the files to each individual that we not spread the files or send them to anyone ourselves, so that he can personally address each person he gives the route info to and ask that they tread lightly and conduct themselves with respect. Otherwise people would be responding to your request for the file. He put a lot of work into this project and I think we all want to respect his wishes.

What is the file that EC is creating for the BRP? Going to be up there this summer and the BRP is one of the places we plan to run.

Error Cooled (EC) created the route and has the GPX files for importing into your GPS. You can PM him with your email and he will send them to you. I'm still waiting on mine, looks like an awesome ride!

I should be all caught up with the requests.

The USFS has delayed opening a good portion of roads that were slated to open 4/1. I would check with them if you are headed out this weekend.

I am off to WV for the weekend to explore. Safe riding everyone .
