    Yes, that's the one. That's what I'd be doing since our area is up in flames right now.

    You can download the entire GPX track, plus maps, plus itinerary from the BestRest website. There's also a 45-minute video showing the highlights of the trip.

    BestRest created that route. I know the guy personally.

    So it looks like we're going to probably do half of the WABDR and then loop back around to Portland. Would rather do the CDR, but plans change!

    Not a full ride report (yet... I'm getting to it!), but this July a group of us were paused on the CDR, attempting to navigate around some pretty large trees that had fallen over the winter, and just as we were starting to consider using brute strength, this KISA (Knight in Shining Armor) rides up, unhooks his 20" chainsaw and starts cutting. One of the major highlights of our trip... Thanks Jeff and Other Dude (who's name I cannot remember, I'm so sorry)! It was awesome meeting the two of you.

    Oops, I apologize, I certainly went the wrong way with that. Apparently my brain was not in gear when I posted. :shog

    i only see the north half of the updated gps files on CDR site. Southern half getting an update? I guess I don't need them anytime soon.
    Might be snowed in for awhile still.:lol3

    Southern half is further from home, it'll take a little longer.
    There'll be a bunch more South come Summer!

    It is a lttle glitch. The CDR website and maintenance are free from Rob. G, and you found it and so does everyone else after a bit of clicking, so I didn't complain !

    About June/July this year, we'll add a whole NEW section South of Big Lake, going down to Crater Lake!
