OBDR Roll Chart(s)?

Are roll charts available for any portion(s) of the OBDR. I am short on time, want to spend a day on the southern-most portion of the OBDR just kind of scouting the trail but don’t know where to start. If someone had just a list of the FS/NF road numbers in order (with or without mileage) I could buzz around making my way on as many as I could before I had to jump back on to pavement and ride home.

Anything like that out there?

I've not seen role charts but there are plenty of GPS tracks out there

Yeah, I'm just not much of a GPS guy. After using GPS for the last 15+ years, I'd rather carry a map, compass and a roll chart. I guess it's not the way it's going to work out.

Thanks though.

Yeah, I understand that. Still, I like the GPS when lost in a city and just wanting to "get outa here"

The tracks and google/mapsource could give you the FS roads, etc for a home-made RC

I think there is a way to convert from a GPS turn by turn to a roll chart, it might be part of the OBCDR CD.

Hey, your right. IIRC, in Mapsource you can convert a track into a route. Then, with the route you can get a turn-by-turn description. I'll bet that can be copy/pasted into a text file that would work on a role chart.

I don't think a roll chart will help with re-routes.
Many cross roads/trails/tracks to confuse the hell out of you on the OBDR.
Maps don't show many of these small two tracks.
You can have a three trail fork in the road and the best way is the gps to find your way through.
I FOLLOWED our gps leader and I can't imagine the dozens of stops to look at paper maps to figure it out. It was a smooth trip this (gps) way.
A dizzying network of trails zig zagging Oregon!
Paper maps will help into going into certain REGIONS, but they don't go into detail in bumfukegypt.

Roll Charts via Basecamp

just for grins i wanted to see if Basecamp could help with the roll chart. It did a pretty good job with the first leg of the OBCDR. One would want to work on the routing a bit before printing, but the idea is there

You can also get turn by turn directions with trackback also. Don't know if you can print them like that though. They do show up on the GPS as you are navigating.
