    as someone that tried to use that .gpx file and went camping with the guys up there in Silver Lake, VT.... the file as I understand it was messed up both me and my buddy's didn't work.... I would recommend you make your own using the route sheet and not use the .gpx file.....

    I simplified the PDR for myself, basically converting the entirety of the PDR into one track and adding one track for the "shortcut", and one track for the "Silver Lake campground" branch. If you want it in a simple track form and not as a route, PM me and I'll send it to you.

    If possible can you send me your gpx files and cue sheets. I have the older files just like something fresh and upto date. Truly appreciated.

    What are good places to camp along route? Going in a couple weeks. I did this a while ago, but it's a bit fuzzy.

    Great question. Wonder if you can just pull off the road and camp any where you want.

    Also, will TKC 70's be good enough? Had Anakee Wilds on for a while but the road noise was nasty.

    I was on the PDR Aug. 21-22 on a well used Mefo Explorer and had no traction problems. I think TKC 70's should be OK. The majority of the route off-pavement is hard packed dirt. The only thing that gave me pause was the occasional road grader which tends to leave soft dirt and a substantial ridge where the dirt rolls off its blade. I don't recall any water crossings and the weather was dry so there was no mud of any type. If you start your ride in the morning from either end (Greenfield MA or Canada) you should easily get to Silver Lake SP to camp. Thats the generally accepted mid-point. there are other state parks on or near the route. I camped at Mt. Acustney which is south of Silver Lake. But be aware that VT state parks start closing in Oct. I dont know about "camping anywhere you want", this isn't exactly a wilderness ride.
