    Thanks Greg, hopefully I can open this. I've been using a III+ since '98 as a stand alone unit mainly because I'm a Mac user and Garmin sees us as not worht their trouble. Recently I gor Roads & Rec from ebay and I've been experimenting with it through Virtual PC. Still can't find my freakin' data cable or manual though. :(:

    Greg,

    Thanks for the track. I miss Adam. I would like to take a day in the spring to follow that route, as my private tribute to Adam's life.

    well, it gives you the a basis for a nice route...
    it's the route a late friend of mine took during the MEME last year.

    Download Alan Murphy's free GPS Utility program and you can overlay the route onto a .bmp photo. Google "Alan Murphy & GPS" to locate the free program. You get a good idea of the route. I used Microsoft EXPEDIA, it came free with the computer, to create the .bmp pic. I f*cked with it for a while until I got the hang of it but once I figured it out it was easy.
    Does anyone have a list of routes saved or posted so that I can screw around some more with the program and get a feel for how far good riding roads are from my house in southeastern Ma and anywhere in New England?. I don't own a GPS yet but have decided to put one on my bike. I hope I can then put the routes with pics or just the routes into the GPS unit and off I go on someone eles great route.

    Mike, newbie
    I met Adam a couple of times at MOTO MKT and at his final year at MEME.
    I was a good friend of Anil T's, who also hung out at MOTO MKT.
    Sucks when you lose friends

    I only met Adam once, on the Minuteman Rally when he and Rupert were getting their IBA SS1K awards. Adam of course had to come up with a route that took them way out of their way across northern New England, kind of screwed up their rally and made the 24hr timing a challange, although I think 'second breakfast' may have had more of an impact than the routing. By the time I got around to emailing them Adam had passed away. His write up of the day can still be read here and seems to typify the guys approach to life: http://www.rgalea.com/photos/mm1000/

    Sorry for the hijack but I couldn't resist.
