    I'm not great with GPS either but did you tack a few different tracks and connect them to create a route? The straight lines look like it was set to create the route with no gaps. Is this how the route should look below? Screenshot_2019-11-30-08-43-27.jpg

    Sonny, I didn’t do anything as far as tacking anything together. That looks to be the route, it was an out and back with one little in and out at what Apple maps has labeled as Boomer Den Rd, it ends (maybe, the gravel anyway) at the photo of the tread lightly please. The only editing I did was to remove the start and end at my house and I moved it to near a gas station right off the I40 exit. Thanks for posting up something I can visualize, it appears to have worked.

    When I opened it in Locus it has a bunch of straight lines connecting points like below. I just deleted them for myself.
    Cool thanks! Screenshot_2019-11-30-09-51-55.jpg

    Just saw on the news last night. Hawkins County, TN Route 66 is re-opened. TN Rte 70 will follow in early December (about the 12th if I recall) They have been closed since portions slid off the mountain back in Feb.

    Today was 125 miles of pave. Elevation changes and a non stop barrage of back road, good pave curves. This is what I moved down here for! Started here in my back yard.

    I got home right before the rain. Light traffic, beautiful scenery (when I had a chance to look), and 100% abuse. I didn’t see my first traffic until mile 40. It was stellar.

    Thanks, heard the same from a friend near Bristol. Looking forward to riding these roads again. It’s been over a year for me.
