Received the files...much appreciated!
Thanks for the files.
I can't wait to ride the BRT.
Thanks for the info Rave. It sounds more like a hillclimb than trail. How do the smaller bikes even get through it? I will go back and review your posts and watch videos.
Got the files. Thanks for all the effort put into this.
EC, I received the files. Thanks for sending them out and putting this together. I have not played on it yet, but it looks to be another interesting way of traveling along the Appalachians. Together with the Trans-eastern Trail, I don't think there is much of an excuse to ever see slab between New England and the deep south.
Just curious but has anyone had any issues viewing the full tracks in Basecamp. FWIW I'm opening the files in Basecamp and using a Zumo 350. The various tracks aren't connecting like they did in the previous version of the file. In most cases it's pretty easy to see how to connect them but there are a few that have multiple ways to link the tracks.
EC is this the way it was designed to eliminate the number of points or am I just doing something wrong?
Congrats Erik! I'll PM coords.
Kev - I filled up at the Hinton store and thought about swinging by your place . Gotta get back out that way soon.
Just received the file. That is good work! Thanks a bunch and look forward to riding it soon!
Should not be much of a difference. I did add some alternates - but it should be clear what is what. Try opening the GDB file with the word raw in if you can.
All is good. As usual it was operator error. I suck at ride reports but expect one at the end of the month.
We are hurt and offended that you were this close and didn't stop by. You can make it right by stopping in next time and introducing the new bride.
Great thread. Subscribed.
anybody had any success using an iphone app for navigating this route?
Try MotionX GPS. Predownload the topo maps before you leave home (free). The app can also broadcast your position/updates to a distro list once it touches a cell tower. Not a bad idea if you're flying solo. Many other intuitive functions embedded as well. I think the pay version is about $6-7. Well worth very cent.
PM me if you have any questions otherwise just hit up the App Store. IMO, it's one of the best out there.
(I should probably clarify this- Using your iPhone assumes you have a pretty good understanding already of tracks vs routes, gdb vs gpx, how to combine multiple tracks into one using Basecamp, etc. If you know this, use the iPhone. If you don't, you'll be overwhelmed quickly.)
Hey ec, I'm planning on heading to the BRT this weekend. If you could shoot me the updated files i will send you a bottle/6-pack of you fav beverage. Thanks for all your hard work!
Hi Chip.... I would love the updated file... You sent a copy to me last fall but I would like to see the updates.... Some friends and I are planning to ride the southern section this fall
Are the maps still available? I sent a PM some days back but haven't gotten a reply.
headed out Monday morning! Looking for recommendations on which campgrounds are good, and which to avoid?
