    Well I converted it to a track.............but don't expect it to be any better. As a GPX, a GDB or KML file opening it in BaseCamp, MapSource , Goggle Maps or Goggle Earth. It still seems to be straight lines to points and not a "route" that follows the roads. And this was before I converted it. Anyone else seeing this? Seems like it was a track or route but with very few shaping points, that's why it is all straight lines and not enough detail to follow the roads. The original file was 113 miles condensed to 9 KB and 51 points, there is just not going to be any detail. IDK, but here it is as a track not a route. :dunno

    Sieg, are you going to this? Put this on the calendar and am riding down on the WR250r. Hope to have it all freshened up by then. Looking to ride down Thursday morning and camping either in southern MO or near buffalo river.

    Who all is in thus far?

    Saw your post on the MO. thread. I want to go and will if..................nothing is going on at the club. I give my spring to them, but after the Show Me 200 and 500, I'm otadar...........:happay If Linda goes with me, about 98% chance, we'll take the toyhauler and camp somewhere near by. We'll go early and stay late because we want to do some exploring in that neighborhood.

    Never done this ride, but have floated buffalo river several times, and camped at buffalo point and others on 7. Thinking maybe roaring river or other lower mo park Thursday night, depending on how far I get that day.

    Myself and 2 other buddies will be joining this ride. This will be our first time riding in that area. We're coming from the STL area and will be camping on the grounds there. It'll be a DRZ, WR250R (mine), and a TW200.

    Thanks for putting this together! Looking forward to it.

    I think we'll truck/trailer the bikes down there. Take a nice grill, not worry about packing space, etc.

    I've added the gpx from that post to DualSportMaps.com:
    https://dualsportmaps.com/showMap?dsmMapId=4a79d047-f545-43da-8e7b-f9a07aa9ee5f

    The gpx does not appear to be very detailed so I'm not sure how much help it will be. But, there it is. Does anyone have any tracks in that area of AR that we can use for this trip?

    The original gpx file is fine and 160 waypoints is detailed enough.
    Just got to use it correctly.
    BTW, thank you @advmgm

    :confused Help me out here! I'm seeing 46 waypoints and not enough detail to see which road to follow. What am I doing wrong?

    v Here's a blow up of the section crossing the Buffalo River. Not a road near it, what do I follow? ar.PNG

    Sorry to be a PIA but generally I'm pretty good with GPS and map things. :(

    Any help is appreciated. Thank you. Hopefully no offense was taken on my comment about the detail. None intended.
