Hi KLR

I'm not 100% sure but I don't think you can convert a track into a route....I think it is something to do with routable waypoints.....like I say I'm not sure.

I have made 4 routes from the Orca C track the hard way.....I had to make 4 sections due to limitation on number of waypoints per route.

If you PM me your email address I can send you the gdb file with the routes.

The track itself is still quite useful as a reference......you just don't get the magic purple line....which can lead you astray especially on TopoCanada roads....you also don't get eta, turn directions etc which are not all that necessary on logging roads.

I am assuming you have a Garmin unit.

Jim

Thanks Jimbo,

I do have a Garmin...60CSx

I sent you a PM

Tracks to routes. Routes to tracks. Garmin to Magellin. .gps to .gpx to .kml. to VPDUs (vulcan planetary directional units)

You name it, this is the answer.

Aaaahhhhh. Finally. After being pried out of the shower with a crowbar, I am finally able to post. It was a great adventure and a fine way to tune my motorcycle camping skills. I think, now, I 've almost got it! And, looking out the window I see really starting to rain so the Sun Dance worked perfectly.

Great to meet so many new friends and, all in all, a flawless weekend. Way to go, guys.(You know who you are.) I be posting pics soon. And, SlimyLimy. Don't forget to post the snowman.

Great day! Other than a coooool start, Right On. Nice to meet a few of the lads from the Mainland. By the time I made it back to Ladysmith there was 400 klms on the old DRZ, I don't think it knew what had hit it.Good job lads& lassies.

Well that went well. I haven't had so much fun:dr: since last time I rode all day,:wi: on excellent trails, :clap:with great company,:mi: in perfect weather:ss:.

It was good to put faces to names and names to handles. It was very good to find everyone made it through in one piece. No mean feat on the B ride ! What a work out; my shoulders are sore.

We'll be doing that again for sure. How about a debrief thread to collect ideas and suggestions for improvement?

Thanks to everyone for their participation and making it a run to remember. :clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap::clap:

Loz out.

My special thanks to my 2 new friends Pat (BMW GAL) and Ray (RAY DI ANT) Thanks for lettingme hang with you guys. Even if you did give the route sheet to John who promptly went the wrong way.. ;)(sorry John) Oh well we got through and we all found each other in the end.

Thanks to our camp crew...Paul who cooked Friday night ...mmmmmmmmm mmmmmmmmmmm good!! That soup was awesome, need the recipe! Thanks Mike for cooking Sat night.. you did an awesome job too. The burgers and smokies were just what was needed. :clap::clap:I was so hungry and so tired. I could not stay up past nine...
