    Sounds friggin awesome! Ready. Just got home from Smokin Hole.
    The GPX files are .zip files. they need to be .gpx in order for gpx readersa to import them. Suggestions?

    The GPX files are contained within the ZIP file. Both Windows and Mac should be able to natively decompress the file to get to the GPX files.

    How? windows just opens a zip file and unzips it to a zip file and it's an endless loop of death. I don't know hoe I could get that on my phone anyway.

    Worked for me on my I-phone, but I 1st had to un-zip on my desk top, then send the gpx files to my phone via e-mail.

    Glad to see you're going to Soggy Bottom, Bill. Bringing Gerry along? I'll be there by about 1 p.m. if you fellows want to do today's ride.

    Ride “1” was a very nice warm-up...

    Put this on your calendar for next year......
    Sensational roads/trails. lots of gravel and elevation. Friday was about 50 miles and Saturday I think I racked up 190 miles.
    Some good "hero" sections to break up the riding - even the rain did not wipe the smile off my face.

    Great locations with super clean showers and restrooms.

    Josh and company put on a 1st rate show. All food was taken care off and FREE beer..... what more can you ask for.
    Nice hall to hang out in when the rains came, good band on Sat night.

    Hats off to all who organized this.

    +1!!!
    Totally agree. I had to leave early because of a GI issue, but one of the best rallys ever! Great job, Josh and Jack (from PBAC)!
    Nicest venue I’ve seen at one of these rallys. My little cabana was nicer then my home bedroom!

    +1 on the positive feedback. The event was excellent. Do not change a thing. Special thanks to Josh and Bart for being nice hosts. Godspeed Hostel was excellent.

    Gerry - On Saturday, we rode about 230 miles. Here is my trip odometer - 227.9 miles, which was reset at the gas station about 2 miles into the route. 20180820_095728.jpg

    I could not make it this year but I am willing to pay for the gpx files of the ride . I would like to pick a weekend , camp and ride if possible? I did download the soggy ride 2 from earlier posts but it's not a loop?

    It takes a fair amount of work to build, pre-ride, and tweak again the GPS routes for these rides. Just like a piece of art work or song, there are intellectual property considerations.
    I'd suggest you contact the folks at Kissell who organized the rides to see if they would like to share them with you. Or show up for the next edition of the ride.

    I understand that . Thats why I said pay for it. I've paid for some of GPS Kevin's gpx files for the TAT and it was awesome.
