I'll actually look for him next time I'm there, even if staying somewhere else.
I dig dogs, and I respect their chosen mission.

Now, the ones out on San Raymundo wash are a different story...
Maybe El Gasipe will pop in here.

Google Map

I'm trying to incorporate this info into Google Maps. I'm not that familiar with GM so am not sure if anyone else can get to this information. Give it a try and reply to this post to let me know you can see all the information I have input so far. If you can see it, I'll continue to update the map when I get time.

I think it's great, but one concern is the size of the symbols eventually becoming so cluttering that you can't navigate. For some places we'll have several listings in one town. How will the bunk symbols stack?

The Juice, to me, would be the ability to click on a State and see a list of cities, then another click gives you what info has been input. Maybe a bunk symbol in a State where we have a listing...dunno.

Maybe I'm all wet here, but just within a very small area of the Copper Canyon, we could have up tp a dozen different cities, and then several choices within each.

What you've done is great - well beyond my puter abilities - and I appreciate it. Please don't take my post as being negative.

I know exactly what you mean about the size of the symbols but I can't find any way to edit them. One thing you can do is just scroll in further and they make more sense. But, I'm glad that you can at least get to the map.

I'm sure there is a better way to do what I'm doing but I'm glad you can get to them. When I have a little more time, I'll try and do some more research and make the map more usable. Right now, I'll go ahead and enter the hotels from this thread into the map. That way, at least you will be able to open up the map and see what hotels might be near where you are heading. When I get back from my trip and have a little more time I'll try and refine the maps to make them more usable.

Thanks for taking a look and thanks for all your information. Either you keep really good notes or you have a fantastic memory but the info is great. I'm hoping to get some more good input after this season.

Merry Christmas .

Thanks for putting out the effort.
The logging of this travel info is what this forum has needed since its inception.
Don't have too much fun when you go south and ride safe, Nata.

You may wanna touch base with geode, our Tent Space God. You guys might be able to trade ideas regarding how to keep up with all this valuable stuff.

Let me add: If you ever feel bogged down and want help (a break, or more), please say so - short term or long term.

It's been kind of fun so far. I'm getting better acquainted with Mexico and Central America by doing this.

I'll do that when I get back. That was a great idea he had and I hope people are using it.

Boy, you're really opening up the barn door here, aren't you. I appreciate the offer and I might be calling on you one day.

Try this file:

Ah crap, it won't upload.

I edited the hotel info in Google Earth, organized into folders you can turn on and off and adjusted the size of the icon. It's all in a .kmz file. But I can't upload it.

Looks good....... I swear.

It's a great but if you cn't share it and have access to edit it for all, then I don't know what it's worth.

I can try e-mailing it if someone cares.
