    Cannonshot, Thanks for all the work you put into this, I should have looked at it before I left the house. The section that I did not get was from Hudson to St Croix Falls. Since then I have finished the nearest 13, the last one 51 was an adventure that I was not expecting, but really enjoyed.

    Awesome thread. Thanks.

    I'm having problems downloading most of the gpx files though. :(

    i love these files however I cannot download most of these gpx files from the server for some reason. I followed the link to the overhead look and was able to import into my garmin trace routes. Hopefully tomorrow I can download and follow the course. Finally something I can be proud about in Wisconsin :clap

    If you PM me an e-mail address, I'll send you the files you want. Since the server changeover, many of the downloads are not available.

    Click here to download tracks from another site.

    PM sent and a major thanks, I mapped out 14 and it's a real pain to find these intersections. I obviously don't have the patience and skill using mapsource that you do:clap

    These tracks are now available again for download. Many thanks to fellow ADVer deputyjones who offered some server space.

    Go to http://dsam-mi.org/GPS_Files/ and you will see a directory of folders that contain the files. You should be able to choose the proper directory without much trouble. The individual files will have names that are the same as or similar to the file names listed when the files were hosted on ADV.

    The files are listed as .zip files. If you left click/open the file, you will open it in your computer's temporary internet directory. Depending on how you have your computer set up, clicking on the .gpx will open the file with Mapsource so you can look at it. Remember, it is in your temporary internet files.

    To save the file in one of your neatly filed directories, "left click/save" or "right click/save target as" and put it where you want to keep it.

    Some of the files have an associated spreadsheet file with points of interest (Black Hills, Pony Express, etc). Same procedures apply.

    Happy to have quick and easy access to these files again. :thumb

    I can now post GPX files to ADV again so I am replacing the lost files that were previously posted.
