Twvt

My humble attempt to show the beauty of the state of West Virginia is ready for release. It's free for all you FF's. I ask that you don't distribute, or post the file or your track logs. Too much of a good thing can be bad.

This will always be work in process, your comments good or bad are always welcome.

As of today, the TWVT will be rolled into the TET file. Nothing of real importance changes, it's simply a way to consolidate a few things. I hope this makes it easier on you, and me.

Combo of all, first release is big bike friendly. I have hero sections and mine roads in reserve, I am a bit timid about posting those right now.

My ultimate goal with this release was an efficient, yet fun run through. I am now working on tying this to Jellico to the west, and TNJT to the north. I think you can see where that is going.

Way to go dude! That was a whole lotta work to do and awesome of you to share it with FF's. I hope to help plot out some more 'never to be released' but often ridden hero sections.

Looks pretty good. Thanks for sharing.

One thing you might want to do is filter down the couple tracks that are more than 500 points. The GPSMap units will want to truncate those. If you want to be nice, you can filter them down further so the older units with a 250 point limit (I think there are some out there) can deal with them.

I might just get to ride some of this next month.

Looks great. Might be nice to tie this through NC down into GA. Would make a great MotoAT trail.

Just saw this, PM sent. Riders like you are what makes this site a daily check (been on a VA trip for two weeks). Thanks for your work.

Perhaps you should have signed up for the intermediate level journey of self discovery. But, we somehow seem to enroll in the ones that we really need.

Thank you for the WV files. That looks like great fun. How did you decide where to begin? My approach has been to find as many dirt roads as possible then use Mapsource to view them all at once to see how I can best make a mostly dirt route. It is a slow process.
Again, thank you.

Again, thank you.

I have rode the southern portion of the state since my teens. That part came sorta natural. I have hunted several years in the mid eastern part of the state, and decided to take a ride through there a few years ago. I got the idea for this on that trip. Since then, I have acquired and used a gps. But, the biggest help with planning was to download the WVDOT county maps. They show every legit road, which I wanted to stick to on this release, and the relative condition of that particular road, and they are free. Again I wanted to make this "big bike" friendly on the first edition.

V2 is about a month away and it will contain some "outlaw" riding. Land company areas, mining roads, gas well roads, etc. They have all been "open" since I was a kid, which is longer than I like to admit.

I have hunted, fished, rode a bicycle, walked, rode a motorcycle, rode a horse, a dune buggy, a quad, and many a four wheel drive clunker through these hills. I have enjoyed it no matter what the conveyance. I hope you do too.

Yes it IS a slow process, but what a long strange trip it has been.
