Re: Red river battleground tour

Just an fyi, my friend Steve can't get off work Friday until 4pm. We're gonna head out that afternoon and spend one night in Shreveport, then plan to catch up with the group probably in Vicksburg on Saturday. He'll be on a blue K1200LT, me on silver K1600. On slightly different note, bedroom still available in Woodway for Thursday night.

Re: Red river battleground tour

I’m testing out BJ’s tonight to make sure it’s ok. So far the stout and the porter have been up to my discerning standards.

Re: Red river battleground tour

Big Kev, I'm out. Had a lot going on in the first part of the week while out of town. I'm feeling my age. and need to relax a bit. Y'all enjoy this great trip, southern accents, charm and history.

Re: Red river battleground tour

OK folks, I did get a chance today to look at the route in Basecamp while I was uploading it to Joe's GPS....its not pretty, apparently Garmin got really confused just east of Mansfield and added about 300 miles of insanity to the route. Joe was going to play with it in Basecamp so keep your eyes peeled for a new uploaded route from him this evening. I will be bringing my laptop to BJ's tonight if anyone needs to upload the new gpx to their GPS.
I am also attaching a word doc with the route on it with this post. I have made copies for everyone who will be at BJ's tonight, but if you arent going to BJ's then please print one off for yourself as a just in case tech fails thing.
Look forward to seeing you tonight guys.

Re: Red river battleground tour

Also. When I plugged my gps in just now there is a new map update available too, so if you haven’t updated you may want to.

Indeed my garmin v would not even allow me to lock onto any satellites without doing the map update.

Re: Red river battleground tour

Ok. I have redone the routes, split it into 3 routes. As soon as my garmin updates I will upload them and then open them in basecamp to see if they clear up the confusion. If it works like I think it will then it will solve the problem instantly. I will let y’all know ASAP.

Re: Red river battleground tour

OK, looks like its sorted, someone please verify it is for me though.

See the three gpx files attached. Apparently i was being too ambitious for Garmin by doing this as a single route...

Re: Red river battleground tour

I was really looking forward to this ride, but the forecast exceeds my limit on the possibility of getting wet, so I’m out. I hope y’all have a fun and dry ride.
