The GPS draws a circle so it is obvious! Funny that we found you admiring the cows in the back paddock last ride then?

Actually in the past before mapping GPS machines we often did circles in the local forest tracks, wondering who else was out there riding. When the track was loaded onto the PC from the GPS, evidence of circling patterns were noticed. It all looks alike out there sometimes.

That is a bummer, where are you located at the moment?

Expecting XR and Slow any time now to go through and finalise the route, etc. We will update you by PM and you make sure you have contact details etc, just in case!

I have just home from Gag's place. We were fooling around with maps and GPS machines, getting the route sorted. Gags calculated that your trip will be about 1300 km to Camerons Corner; shorter if you use the excavator and go as the crow flies. We hope to see you there Nuts!

Routing on Basecamp

Gags and Slow, I have been playing Basecamp's routing function. I placed waypoints on intersections that defined where I wanted to go and the program laid the route 90% where I wanted to go. Now all I have to do is work out how to edit the route so it is 100% where I want it to go. Any ideas?

The process
1) place waypoints
2) select route icon. it asks for you to drag form start point of your route to the finish. move the pencil icon from start point to finsish popint and the route is highlighted.

If we can work this out, then we can redo the trip on the GPS more accurately than the track files I have done.

I just looked at the route help video. all has been revealed!

The route is still pretty much as Mick has previously posted, Figure 8's as opposed to XR's U-Turns!!

Me thinks the reason that Slow is spending more time in bed is reasons other than beauty sleep!!!!

( I may be old but I aint dead yet. Ronnie was a very nice young lady Slow; you look after her now!)

Besides; I calculate that a figure 8 is made up of four very big U- turns.

So, I am guessing you will meet us somewhere north of Digby? As we are leaving on the Monday arvo, the plan is to bunk down at Wal's (BigRedRooster) farm on the Monday night (Kaniva).

Unless you wanted to cross over the fence and join us from the start but that doesn't make too much sense. You could meet us in Digby, I would think it would be around 1500ish, assuming we can drag Slow out of the sack

Pepper tree winery is on our route. Don't buy too much wine while you wait.
