Help would be much appreciated :). Shoot me a pm with your email address and I'll send you a google earth file showing some of the terrain I was hoping to include out there. The western half won't really be started until fall of 2011 once the eastern half is completed but gettting a jump start and having folks pre ride (recon) parts of the route prior to us getting out there is a great idea. As funds and time away from work aren't endless this would really help us out.
Thanks to everyone for their support, having others help out will make the route better (as having local's input is invaluable) and get the finished product done sooner.
