I sent a PDF of the roadbook to crankshaft, and his wife worked it into a continuous form that could be printed on that wide format printer. The whole process is WAY more time consuming than you could imagine. Creating the official GPS file was a piece of cake compared to the roadbooks.
Is it cost effective this way? Sure saves alot of time for the riders...
