I've been lurking in the background since a friend of mine connected me with your RR. Joe, I've been enjoying your, Minxter's and Buuuuuuurt's adventure ever since. Many thanks for sharing with us.

I can second the recommendation for ridewithgps.com. I've done a bit of research on GPS and tracking websites, and it's the best I could find. It's very good at uploading and displaying your routes after you've recorded them, and even better at planning and setting routes ahead of a ride. (Of course, that feature isn't really necessary for an adventure like yours!)

Thanks again!

You can upload a GPX here, but only in the laying down tracks forum (outer darkness I suppose). Start a new thread there, then post link to it here, easy peasy, Great RR, thoroughly enjoyed it, thanks!!

I've downloaded GPX files from here. I'm not sure how hard it is to upload.

Thumb thanks for sharing!

I enjoyed reading your adventure ride. I am glad that you finished the whole stretch without serious incident.
My admiration goes to the lady rider.

Until your next adventure, Mabuhay! (Long Live!)

Is it too early to look forward to next years report, wherever that may be?

On that note, here comes winter!

Just awesome. Great job and thanks for taking the time to post it all, I understand how time consuming it can be. The whole trip is inspiring to say the least. Great way to spend a lazy Sunday morning......into early afternoon!
