    When I try to make a loop in google maps, it just always takes the shortest between the first & second place.

    For example, if I type "Boise, ID to Idaho City, ID to Banks, ID to Boise, ID," I only get the route from Boise to ID City. I can force in the loop with a bunch of dragging an editing, but it's generally a PITA. There must be an easier way.

    Also, how do I send the route to someone in email or post a link to it as an editable google map link? All I can figure out how to do now is make a screen cap & send the route as and image.

    All advice appreciated.

    Add a colon. Boise, ID to: Idaho City, ID to: Banks, ID to: Boise, ID

    example: http://goo.gl/maps/dmZh

    Press the link button on the left, right next to the print button above. If you use "short link", it'll make a.. short link.
