    Can Linda handle it on the WRR? or should we plan go around anywhere?

    Linda should have no problem on the WR. I rode it on the WR last year. High water would be the only problem.

    Still looking to join this great ride, but may be trailering and camping at the hub, depending on weather. Anyone ever set up a tent in their lot? Was leaning toward Kyles landing on 7 as I have camped there before and it is nice.

    You can camp right behind the motel. They will let you take a shower in one of their extra rooms.

    I talked to Debbie, they seem very accommodating, sounds like you'll be good tenting there.

    Still looking a touch wet. Come on weather, we just want the gravel to be damp, not raging torrent.

    Rain or shine, I'll still be there. But I think I'll keep my room reservations instead of trying to tent it.

    I have a Transparent map for Garmin's that that can be load at the same time as the City Nav. map and overlays tracks in Red if your GPS does not use/show tracks. It's a Transparent Map and will need to be load on your GPS as a map.
    I don't have a way to post it so if someone would like to post a link to a FTP server I can email the files to you to post up.
    PM me.

    Well we are out, guys. Weather scared us off. That's me plus 2 more (TDubben and a friend). Hopefully we'll see some of you at Swinging Bridges May 6-7! Thanks for putting this together, advmgm...maybe next year.

    The hell you say, now I find that very interesting. I'd sure like to know how or what you do to achieve that?
    Been using Garmin, mapsource with citynav for about 10 years and this is the first time I have heard of using an overlay transparent map over cityvav.

    My hat is tipped to you sir!
    Looking forward to trying this out.
    Someone give that man a ftp link, then give him a beer
