    I see the southern discrepancy and I think we did notice that after the 2011 trip.

    I took your May 2012 track and busted it up into chunks of 350. My gps only takes 500 points per saved track, and I'd rather have all the points than the filtered version.

    I put the whole mess up on my Google Drive:

    So, by backwards, what do you mean? Which direction do we head out of Verdigre?

    Once I know that, I can re-order the points in the proper direction and add a couple of waypoints that indicate which direction to turn.

    Had a great time on the ride. Peter was a bit tentative at first, so we left at the tail end of the riders and were followed by the sweep rider, Jeff Hixson. Big thanks to Jeff for keeping an eye out for us!

    Peter did pretty well for his first time out on his 125, and first time facing gravel roads and sand. He did eat a bit of sand but no injuries ensued.

    I took one, before we departed, and posted it up to FB. For the ride itself, I tailed Jr. so that he could ride the pace he wanted. I think he has had enough of sand for one weekend. :wink:

    Any sand is too much in my book.
