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.

Got the files, thanks.

But, I could really use .gpx format, since you offered. I'm using ExpertGPS and Garmin eTrex.

Thanks again for all your hard work. I'll send those WNC tracks as soon as I clean them up a little.

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.

And since you mentioned it, I'll take the opportunity for a plug here. I have started another thread for mapping resources. I would really like everyone's help on it. It will be sort of a winter project, kind of in the infant stages now. Have a look, you can find it here.

I guess there is a benifit to being severely directionally challenged. I have travelled many of the same, many with you... and still have a rough time knowing where I am most of the time! As long as I can keep that tail light in the not too distant foreground. The benefit would only be that it all seems so brilliant and new... with a few glimmers of desavu!

My hat is off to you and the rest of the folks who can put all the pieces together!

Got the files.

I've opened them in Google Earth, but I'm having some issues reading a few parts of it. The sections where there are alternative routes, only one of the routes will show up.
Haven't tried it with Mapsource yet.
And I really have no idea if my GPS can even load tracks (Garmin Nuvi 200); I haven't looked into that yet.

I don't think a Nuvi will load tracks. I think you will have to route in mapsource. I haven't tried to open in google.
