    Google maps comes up in chrome, but has no pre-populated address.

    Do you have an address or GPS?

    Link didn't work for me either, just brought up the base Google map. So I went into the address bar and copied out the Lat/Lon numbers and pasted into Google. That came up as south central Kansas. Why didn't I know of this stuff (trials riding that is) when I was going to school in Pittsburg?

    Ill work on it, because it used to work perfectly, and of course it is actually showing fine on my PC... it is a small "directions" map from HWY166 at Peru, to the trials site gates.

    Maybe if I did a screen shot instead, lol.

    Looking to find mapping alternatives, google sux now.

    Ok I have this new website I found, we'll see if it is accurate enough?

    Site is, http://itouchmap.com/latlong.html

    According to that site, I placed the marker at the gates, this is what it gives me:

    Latitude - Longitude:
    37.101192,-96.122882
    and
    Lat: 37° 6' 4.2906"
    Long: -96° 7' 22.3752"

    I put the vacation request in for the Arizona event. At first they were giving me a lot of grief for planning something out 10 months ahead of time. Then they realized it was for 2015. :huh
    The way I have to do my vacation requests there are a dozen people who have to approve it (actually it is automatically approved unless someone declines it). So there are a dozen people all asking me if I have this right.

    The good part, no one has a schedule that far out yet, so no one can say "NO". It all came back as "accepted". I have an approved vacation.

    I had trouble finding the Peru Event last time.

    I suggest a map in Word and converted to a pdf.

    My map for the ranch has contact phone numbers, GPS, detailed written directions, and a scanned and pasted zoom-up of the DeLorme topo atlas for a visual of the directions. There is nothing better than DeLorme topo atlases for maps. Here's the Kansas map:
