I would advise folks to book as a group. 4 people is $54 or if you book by yourself its $32 for one person. I wouldnt count on just showing up without a reservation as its a weekend and is likely to be full

Oops I didn't read that and already booked

I'll probably cancel my reservation and try to book a 4 spot. ini88 will probably want one of those spots so let me know if any two others want to split costs.

I was thinking of reserving a cabin at the campsite Friday simply because 1. The tent sites ain't cheap. 2. If it's going to be a long day Saturday -- and I'm a smell the roses type -- it saves considerable time breaking down and packing camping gear. I fart sometimes and snore. Anyone wanna split the cost of a cabin? People who are hard of hearing with a poor sense of smell appreciated

The campground says the tent sites are limited to 12 people per site, nothing about tents.

No they don't know. When approached for a group rate we would have had to of paid in advance, not something we're capable of nor did we want to get involved in that aspect. It's not a huge place so it shouldn't be an issue, there will be a "common" site with a fire for folks to mingle at over a beer

I tried that, they pretend that you can make a payment but it turns into you signing up for a paypal account. I figured I'd sign up for an account, pay, then close the account but they wanted all kinds of access and permissions with my money that I won't give them so I closed the account before it went anywhere. Any other ideas?

Looks like I can't really cancel until April 1

Payment sent for registration. I'll look into the campsite reservations this weekend. Would it be possible/reasonable for you guys to post a "campsite reservations" table on the front page, so that people can hook up with each other to fill 4 person reservation sites. I was thinking of a table similar to what you have with columns for the handle of the rider with the reservation, site, total spots, and spots available. It would make it much easier to coordinate with others.

Screwtilities for GPX files

Because of the various standards for GPS files, the track files provided by our hosts may not work seamlessly with your system. If you have a GPS that doesn't support imported tracks or routes, you are fairly much screwed. Most of the Tom-Tom line won't work for this sort of trip, for example.

However, if your system will import, here's a couple of utilities that are free and very valuable:

GPSBabel. Freeware. Translates a wide variety of formats, and will translate tracks to routes. The documentation is sketchy, and the interface is bare bones, but it works. www.gpsbabel.org

GPX editor. This is nicely powerful, and good for fly-overs, as it supports both Google Maps and Google Earth. It has a fairly broad selection of tools for manipulating files, combining them, or deleting unwanted sections. Free on CNET here as a tiny download: http://download.cnet.com/GPX-Editor/...-10913774.html. This program has particularly good filters for reducing the number of points on a route. The documentation is thin, and some of the selection boxes appear in French, giving it a nice international flavor.

Another good one is available free from Trail Tech, which is meant as support software for their Voyager series of moto dashboards. It can be found here: http://trailtech.net/ride_leader.html. I have a bike equipped with a Voyager, and it's a good value in a moto-specific dashboard. I also have a mount for my DeLorme GPS. The Voyager would get you through, but it is limited in capability. It's a good value for the dollar, as are most of their products.
