Send a PM to R-dubb or Jean-Luc... one of them may still have the tracks.
I got the tracks,now how do I get them into my 2610 ???
Glad you got them. FYI, the tracks are in a downloadable file at the bottom of "other post".
Where's that post with the tracks?
Curious if the recent fires closed off some of the portions closer to LA.
Been getting the urge to shove a GS over some of this trail!
I'll bet some of it is just plain gone. I've been wondering the same.
The tracks file is attached to the bottom of the first post here:
Only one way to find out :)
Winter months might be a little brutal, but once things thaw out feel like wrestling a GSA up to Canada?
I already did it once. But who knows.... maybe the SE needs a go?
I went to check out some waypoints near Acton, I had GPS issues at teh time, but from Acton south it's almost certainly closed or gone.
Epic, Staggering, and everythin mind blowing. Truely amazing and a true definition of a ADV ride. Top notch and thank you.
I'm in on my 950
Seems like only yesterday i was following you guys on this adventure!
Years later and this thread is still active... now that tells you something. What a great ride you guys!
Thanks for taking all of us (via advrider) along with you!
Great report! I've been searching for a route north for our upcoming trip the first week in may (as in a month from now)....I'm going to sift through the track this evening....we would pick up the route at the base of sequoia and take it north to Yosemite...
This is exactly what we've been looking for..but we might be a few months too early..
Any idea how much of this would still be under snow ? (From sequoia north to Yosemite )
a ride I'm going to have to put on my bucket list. Great job guys
Thanks for the great post and tracks.
I converted them to a Google earth file so I could fly your route in the simulator. Do you mind if I post the file for others to play with?
Go for it. That would be great! I've been getting an itch to do that ride again...
I've been playing with GPS stuff the last couple days and dumped R-dubb's 3000 PCT mile track file into Google earth. Flying along the route in 3D is really cool.
I can't attach the .KML file here (the Google earth format) but here are the steps so you can do it yourself. It will take about 5 minutes to get setup and running and worth every minute
1 Download R-dubb's .gpx file from here
2 Install google Earth 5.0 from here (easy, fast and no registration)
3 Surf to GPS Virtualizer.com here (free, fast, easy and really powerfull)
4 In the General Parameters... File output type select .KML
5 Browse to your gpx file using the Upload your GPS files here field
6 click on the resulting .kml file and you are golden. Google earth will load and you can use the play track button to fly the route.
If you are having problems, post here and I'll try to help but I must admit...all these tools and GPS files in general are new to me as of this morning.
If I can find a way or location where I can post the KML file I'll repost.
Enjoy and thanks again R-dubb
That is just awesome. Unbelievable.. I'm really falling behind in the GPS world. I love how you can stop the fly through. Change the angles, zoom in to catch details along the way. Brings back a lot of memories.
Grapevine Road seemed like a mess at the time with 100 pounds of gear and dry heat. Now I can see why.
Thanks for posting the tutorial. Worked like a champ!!!
