    I'm in desperate need of the OBDR Route #3 GPX file ready to load into my GPS. I'm riding this route starting tomorrow morning and am currently on the move so I don't have access to a computer to edit routes and create my own route #3 gpx file. I bought the physical maps from OOHV of this route for $35 but after receiving these realize I need GPS to supplement. I applied to the gpsexchange.com website four days ago but still have not been given access so I can't download Countdown's ready to load gpx file of route #3. If someone could post or email the file to me I will be forever indebted to them.

    Just got back from ridding the center section, about 385mi. of route 5 of the OBDR. I’ll have to say, that was an awesome four days, used Jerry’s tracks (thanks Jerry) and they were spot on, except for about a half mile south of the Strawberry Mt’s, but the road intersected the route again, easily seen on the GPS. We went from North to South, which was the best for us, but everyone agreed, that north to south through Crane Crossing on the Malheur River is the way to go. I used my Garmin Montana 600 with the powered rugged mount, and it worked extremely well. When I get some more time I’ll post the GPX file. We are already planning to do more sections of the OBDR, and I’m really looking forward to it. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Just completed Route 5 North to South using the track from this thread...the gpx file is still very valid as it made for a fantastic 4 day ride.

    Thanks, he sent me his active log which I added to my file on GPSXchange.com Much better resolution now. When I get time I will break up Rt 5 into 2,000 point chunks for easier leading.

    Hello Jerry,

    I'm trying to access your private library at www.gpsxchange.com, but I don't see any option for file download?
    do i need to upload a file first for getting download access?

    Thank you
