Thanks Ben, that leaves about 15 that need a tune up. Also, did you post your pix to the waymarking sites? I'm still trying to find a link for about ten sites I put on the original list. I found some new postings that others had posted up since I first published this and hoped that you would post the rest. I can send you the most recent spreadsheet so you can see what is needed.

Figured you were going to ask me that

Just sent a message to the "cheeseheads" that are heading up the group on waymarking .com to see If I could email them the latest GPX file and to point them to my photobucket album with all the pics.

Yeah, send me that spreadsheet... I'll take matters into my own hands.

Looks like the Wisconsin Historical Society has been busy adding new markers and updating their Lists...

Linky

The trouble is that the numbers of the markers are all different, and the new list seems to exclude some of the markers that were on the old one and that I know exist

I think things like historical markers, rustic roads, and heritage and history sites will always be a moving target over time.

Perhaps next winter I'll bounce the current rosters against the old to get things current again. I only intended these things to be used as an overlay for potential stops along the way as part of another route someone was planning (or as photo tag locations).

Stumbled upon this after doing Cannon's Rustic Road Ride this weekend. 500 Historical Markers?! Nicely done
