Drew some quick planned tracks. If you have a map, let me know you're thoughts. These add from newport to the planes, and then from the planes to I95 in Howland, ME

They seem to be working in both backcountry navigator, and google earth.

Having issues with the site, and quoting. Wont let me post text not within the quote. But anyway.....




Took me awhile to figure out how to load them into backcountry navigator. Click on the little map looking button on the top bar. At the bottom of that menu is "showing tracks and waypoints from trip..." Click that, and then "import gpx or kml". I made the last 2 KMl's because google earth can save to that natively.

i just checked my cell phone data map up in Maine. as soon as you leave the i-95 corridor, my phone is useless. didnt check other major carriers like verzion, surely their network is better. i also changed some stuff on the forum. let me know if anything is driving you crazy. main thing was the font color i made brighter.

With T-Mobile it says "service partner" but like Ed once you leave the I95 corridor coverage gets a little spotty.

i went for a couple drinks after work (which i never do) yesterday, and my girl got home before me. I didn't text or call and i walked in 2 hours later and she had already thought about which of my friends would help her move out when she found out I was dead.... she also said Brian was most likely to show up at the door to announce my death. LOL. i said he might be carrying the folded union jack. so yeah the link would be sweet.

if anyone gets stuck on the side of the road Friday Night I'll be driving by  them most likely.  Likewise if I'm late please call me and find out where the heck i am.
