I have a connection that could Print 'em out on weather-proof bumper sticker type stuff if someone could to do the design work... Unless you want to see my MS paint "skills"

Have fun with this Rusty!

It would be neat if someone would step up and do Illinois . . .

Sounds like something I could set my wife to do, she will be done at UWO with a drawing degree in a couple months and needs something for her creative outlet.

She's really good at drawing nudes, so if we could talk Ben into straddling a marker somewhere......

Or not

Seriously though, how big you want the sticker? Oval, round, rectangle? Maybe the state outline, with a marker shape inside and a bike overlay?

Ben, I think a good design would be to use the shape and color of a full size marker. Then add some text that indicates 100, 200 . . . through 500 (five slightly different stickers) sites knocked off. Beneath the text in the top of the sticker frame, one could slip in some kind of image of a motorcycle.

Cool, Ben. I was just photoshopping something up using the same shield. I was thinking it would be cool to keep the badger inside, though. Stupid WHS changed their logo to something smooth and current. So finding that shield in a ready-to-modify online pic is hard.

You would make Sarah Davis McBride proud if you did this.

Looking good so far! Sub "historical" instead of "official".

The original markers had 'official' and then sometime around 1997-98, they decided to make them 'historical' markers. Using 'Historical' helps give the point of the sticker across.

Upgraded GPS File

I just finished upgrading the GPS file for the historical markers. In addition to the street directions remarks, the files now also contain the URL for the individual marker's web page. This allows you to see a photo of and read the marker ahead of time. So . . . much of the information on the matrix is not incorporated into the GPS file via "Waypoint Properties".



When the attachments thing get worked out, I'll post the updated version of the file in GPS Central. (otherwise, PM with an e-mail address)

OK, local boys....

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but, I am looking into my first GPS.
I would like to use the type of info Cannon has out there as well as track my routes. I can't spend 700 bucks!

What do you use? What should I get?

The GPS threads just have way too much info for me to digest.

PM me or post as others may have the same Q's

Thanks, Cory

If you want to ride trails, get a 60cx (used or refurbished).

If you want to ride roads, there are other options.

Discussions on GPS could go on and on as there are too many variables.
