Thank you
BaseCamp. The Montana is pretty money, but it still doesn't have as much processor as your computer, much less a keyboard or mouse.

From the email I got with the files (hope EC doesn't mind me quoting the email):

Basically, you can select multiple tracks in BaseCamp and tell it to join them. However, tracks are directional so the joins may not be exactly what you want. So, it is best to duplicate the tracks, put them in their own folder in BaseCamp and do the join on a couple at a time until you get the hang of it. Experiment, that's one of the best ways to learn this stuff.

Garmin also has some BaseCamp forums to ask questions in. Here is the link to the Windows version:

https://forums.garmin.com/forumdisplay.php?179-BaseCamp

They also have a Mac version.

EDIT: here's a link to the Montana wiki, lots of good stuff there:

Thanks for the ride report!
Lol, I just noticed the comments about the helmet on the mirror...Next time, I'll have to stage my pics better!

Rode another short, 50 mile section of the trail last Saturday, basically from 311 (at tub run rd), to 460. If anyone is interested, there are more pics and a short write-up here.

Couple of pics:





So, um, that section of trail after the BRT crosses the Appalachian trail? Yeah, that section is not noob friendly:) Not sure what the name of that section is, but I'm not sure I'd call it fun yet. I chickened out from standing on the pegs quite a bit, and sat down and went slowly with my feet out like outriggers:) We decided this was a bit less like trail riding, and a lot more like "motorcycle assisted hiking"

Gratuitous shot of the mud:


Also, in case its not obvious, these tires are not recommended for this part of the trail:



(I bought the bike used earlier this year, and these were what was on it. I should probably stop being cheap, and buy something more knobby).

Mostly, this is good stuff. Having the route all pieced together all ready is pretty great. Now if only it would stop raining for a few consecutive days so we can do a multi day camping trip on the trail.

Clayton - just saw you included your email in your last PM on Tuesday - that is what I need to get the files out.

No email address - no way to send people the files.

I need to make a few changes to the map set to alleviate a few routing errors. I hope to have this done an updated by this weekend.

I ask that folks not circulate the data set.

Patience please

Gratuitous shot of the mud:

Thats Baily Gap FR177.4 on the way up Butt Mountain.

This is a good reminder to spoon on knobbies if you are going to ride the BRT.

Also read your blog posting at Amytracker. That valley is pretty sweet.



This section (the muddy - Bailey Gap) leads you to the Butt Mountain lookout... which is a rewarding view over Pearisburg.
