Fantastic! Now you're both retired. From that line of work, anyway.

Wow! Congrats! They say owners and their dogs look similar but the resemblance is freakish

You realize you need a sidecar rig now, right?

Well, Cross finally got home last night



That's awesome. Congratulations.

+1 on the side car idea :)

Congratulations on happy Cross' return home.

Hey, anybody wants to ride tomorrow Bull Dog Canyon?

If yes, I'll be at the Bush Highway entrance @ 8:00am.

Should be heading home around 11am.

Any takers?

Ricardo,

Have a great time tomorrow - someday I need to do Bull Dog but can't make tomorrow.


Are you going to try and make the Montana Mountain ride?

This question gets asked a lot and since I've got a fair amount of knowledge on the matter I'm going to post this quick tutorial on how to aquire a GPX file from anything that is routed on googlemaps.

Here's how you do it. When someone posts a googpemaps route you go to that google maps link and copy the route address. You do this by clicking on the link icon that is next to the print icon directly below here.The link is highlighted in blue.



Then go to GPSVISUALIZER website. You're going to click where it says "Convert to GPX".



The page will look like you see below. There, you are going to paste the googlemaps link that you copied previously where it sas "Or provide the URL of a file on the web:"

Then click "Convert"



That will bring you to the page below.
You have two options here. I'm going to just give you the easiest. Click on where it says " Click to download (funkynumeric name of file.gpx) "

Depending on the browser you have it will download to wherever you have your downloads folder set up to. If it asks you to chose a program, select Basecamp.



Here is the file opened in Basecamp. You'll see that when it got converted, each leg (from point a to b, b to c, etc) is broken up into its own separate track. You're going to select them all and right-click whcih will give you the Advanced options. There, you select "Join the Selected Tracks"



But hold on, you may not be done. Sometimes the tracks are not in order so you'll see this:



That's no good. So you'll select each leg and click the arrows to move them up or down in order. Once you have put them all in the correct order the track will look like below.



I renamed the track and made it blue to differentiate it from others around.

The next step is for those that have older units that only allow a certain number of waypoints in a single track. As you can see below this track has over 600 points.



What you want to do is click on the "Filter" button. That will allow you to select a maximum number of waypoint for the track and it will recalculate itself. I find that 100-150 points is more than enough depending on the length of the particular track.

That's it. You are now ready to export it into your gps.

:)

If you guys have any questions let me know.
