    I am collecting a set of Tracks for dirt in Colorado. Would appreciate any Active Logs but specifically looking for these:

    I just posted tracks from a trip a few weeks ago on GPSXchange that covers a few of the tracks you are interested in. It is called Salida CO Loops.

    I will take a closer look at what you are looking for and see what I have.

    Already collected those, which is what got me started.

    I can see why you're looking for Active Logs. There are some rather "creative" Tracks in that file.

    Yes the only thing I trust are active Logs (with time tags) but photos are almost as good. At least I know a road is there, so if you want to help, where is this?

    I took "this" (the above screenshot) from your posted file above. It's labeled CDR Day 082. It starts in Clark, CO on Rt129. It looks like someone drew this track with a very bad map to go by. It certainly wasn't ridden. There are many places along the routes (Track) that are way off of any Satellite Imagery visible two-track or even single-track - much less the nearby road.

    P.S, the original CDR used Cr 129 N-S from the CO-WY border.

    The "Original" CDR is no where near the actual divide in most places. I scouted new one for New Mexico, hope to get one for Colorado sometime before I get too old.

    I just completed the CDR and have files. Actual tracks and validated "drawn" tracks. How do I attach or share a gpx file? How large of a file can be attached?

    I think you can use that orange button at the bottom of the screen calle "Upload Pic or GPS Track". When you click it, it will open up a file navigation window. I think I have done this with the new software here.

    I wish I could figure out how to upload a link to a picture from my photo library with the new software.

    See if this works. These are the track that I drew, and then rode. They worked well. I assume you have the Colorado BCDR tracks?

    This is how I insert a photo. I just did it and wrote down the steps.

    In Flickr:
    Open a photo
    Left click on “download this photo”
    Right click on the size I want (medium, large, etc.)
    Left click on “copy link address”

    In Advrider

    Left click on "image" from the top menu
    Paste the link from Flickr
    Left click on "insert"

    Thanks. I appreciate your instructions. It is about like I assumed it would be.

    The problem is that I don't see any option called "image" anywhere on the screen. I looked several times at all the stuff on the top of the page but I just don't see it.

    I guess I need more help.

    It is the box to the right of the smiley face. The two rectangles to the right of that lets you put youtube videos in.

    I feel like an idiot. I am not seeing any smiley face. It is starting to sound like you are talking about the old message reply dialog box. I was pretty good at that one.

    But with the new software the only way I see to reply to a message is in the yellow blank area at the bottom of the page. And it only offers the orange Upload Pics... option.

    Is there a way to get to the old message replay dialog?

    If I get really desperate I will actually look for some documentation or FAQ

    At the top of the box I see a tool bar with all the choices for font, bold, etc. including the smiley and image.
    At the bottom of the box are the three buttons for post reply, upload pic, options...
