GPS trail tracking, mapping
« on: December 29, 2013, 11:20:52 AM »
Anyone use any kind of trail mapping?
Everyone has a smart phone now and there are a lot of apps out there.
I've used My Tracks before. Works well. Also useful for checking how far off your speedometer is.
It was neat to see my route on a map and how far I actually traveled.
Then again sometimes I don't want any proof of where I've been!

Have always thought about do this for Rausch creek park. Its seems no matter how many times I look at the maps they provide I get confused cause they keep adding trails/closing trails but do not put it on the map given out. Its a good idea!

I usually try to get someone else to lead the way. Or I just tell em "we're not driving in circles, that was a victory lap!"

I attempt to do the same, But some how I always end up leading. Its not too bad when you have vary capable vehicles following you. Its when you have ppl that are afraid to scratch or not willing to try anything. Then you really need to know the trails, to make sure everyone can make it though. I took a group out once, Had a guy that didn't want to try anything really but the main trails it seemed. I was bored needless to say.  I told him next time we go you need to have your jeep lifted to the point in which he will feels ok to actually wheel it.
