    Thanks for looking. I tried to find a number for a station in Mina - no luck. There's one with a disconnected number, but that's all.

    I did talk to a woman at a station in Hadley tho, so we're set I think.

    Drove through Mina on Friday, all is the same. The old station on South end is closed but one near center is open. Also great Malt/Burger stand. I guess I should try to get phone numbers and add to wayponts on my SMTS file.

    thanks again. I'm glad you made lots of waypoints, cause I couldn't see your track. I was connecting the dots.

    You guys know about this? A friend asked me to check online for Utah maps and this is what I found was most useful for him.

    Utah Topo Maps: http://www.miscjunk.org/mj/mp_uttopo.html

    Introduction
    The purpose of this project is to create electronic topo maps for the state of Utah for Garmin GPS units with mapping capability. This is an on-going project with additional updates performed as time and resources allow.

    Features
    The mapset is created from freely available GIS data and has the following data layers:
    - Interstates, highways, railroads, county, local and forest roads
    - High resolution water data (lakes, rivers and streams)
    - Land use, metro areas
    - Elevation contours (40ft intervals)
    - Points of interest (summits, mines, falls, dams, cemeteries, towers, populated places, etc.)

    NEW! Incremental updates are available, the following features are being worked on:
    - Better representation of land status data with custom styles
    - Defined 4wd trails and POIs
    - Custom styles for unpaved roads, 4wd trails
    - Update of high resolution water data (streams)
    - Update of POIs
    - Add detailed data for National Parks

    Also available:
    Arizona
    Colorado
    Florida
    Hawaii
    Idaho
    Mississippi
    Montana
    Nevada
    New Mexico
    Utah
