I noticed one thing about whoops when we hit some of them on the Caddo Gap ride there on some of those Wolf Pen Gap trails. It almost seemed like less work to gas it on the uptake and kind of fly over them instead of going slower. I've probably been watching too many Jarvis Graham videos! Ha!

8 out of 10 whoops I did right. It was those two flat landings that jar my spine. We did the perfect amount. I could not handle it all day.

Would you separate these out into three separate days for those of us whose GPS does not like a combined route please?

thanks.

I'm having trouble downloading the .gpx files on my computer. Every time I go to download them, the computer defaults to saving them as a .php file, which doesn't allow me to upload them to my gps.

Am I wrong to assume that all I need to do to use these tracks is download them as a .gpx file (not that I can even do that!), then drag them out of my download folder into the GPX folder on my Garmin Oregon 450T and then use them at that point?

What do you have for map software, like MapSource or BaseCamp? What I do is when the file shows up as downloaded I say I want to open it and whatever map software you have should open it. Then save it to a folder and download it to your GPS.

I finally got it figured out last night after messing with it for a while. I downloaded the .php file, opened it in Mapsource, re-saved it as a .gpx file and uploaded it onto my GPS.

That seemed to work pretty well, but I definitely want to streamline the process in the future.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Sounds like you are using "Internet Exploder" for a browser. Try right clicking the link, then click "save target as" and open the dropbox at the bottom of the save window and switch to All Files (*.*) then name the file and add the .gpx extension. If you slap it around a little, even IE will behave. Need an easier way? With Firefox, all you have to do is click the link.

Now that I am all registered and what not I been looking at routes. That Elvis track in the first post is mine. It is a real nice ride from Oark East and then North up to Parthenon, and loop around to Kingston and on to Withrow Springs State Park and Huntsville. If I can't find a group to tag along with Saturday when I get down there early that morning then I will probably just ride that and try to make Granny's kitchen in Huntsville for lunch.

If anybody is interested in following me on that route I will lead it, if not I will try to join up in somebody elses group.

I ride a pretty quick pace, have led 2 groups ant 2 previous S.L.A.P. events and we had fun.

This route has a few water crossings. They could be deep that time of year, just depends on the timing of the rains.

Yup- guilty as charged! Unfortunately, I am using IE since it is what was on my PC laptop when I bought it. After reading your post, I downloaded Firefox and it is as easy to use as you said it was! I was assuming that the problem was going to be a lot more complicated, but I'm glad all it took was a new browser.

Thanks!

SLAP maps

I was directed to this thread to find the tracks (maps) for the SLAP ride next weekend. On the first page I see SEVERAL maps but none of them are titled SLAP. Can someone point me in the right direction to get the routes for SLAP 2014?

There are no "maps" to speak of..these are GPX files you can put into your gps and follow..all these files are very close to Byrds Adv Ctr and can keep you entertained for weeks.

I have tried to keep a brief discription of each GPX that I have up loaded, and I have asked others to o the same, but I can't babysit them all the time you know.

Now if you are looking for the SLAP Single Tracks, they have not been post up in this thread, yet..the Okie Boyz may have another place to put them, even tho it would make more sense to put them here.
