Shanman, thanks so much... maps like this were one of the first things I went looking for when I decided to plan my trip. Excellent work, and all for us? Hugs to you!

Shan,
Sorry the Professor does not have any data cables for the GPS, Which I do not understand? and it would take too long to get one before we leave on Saturday. Is there any other way to do what you need?

Plotting this, or even noting which sites it goes between, would be a huge help.

Ok, I will do my best.... I will post my findings here on the board. It may be sometime next week before I get the free time to look around. But If I know my DW she will have me looping as soon as we get there.... Can you receive texts? That may be a good way to get you the info ASAP... PM me and i will get your number.... I could also send some small pics along to show what I have seen?

On second thought, if you happen to be going through the 600 loop anyhow you could do some reconnaissance for me. Make a list of every site number on one side of the loop (inside or outside) and note the highest site number on the loop (pretty sure it's on the outside, aka the pond side). That would help me verify some "fuzzy numbers" I have from another Fort spy! That would be a huge help! If you wanted to note which sites paths run between, that would be very helpful too.

Thanks so much for your help,
Enjoy the Fort,

Thumbs up

Shannon,
What an awesome project you have done. It looks great and will be a useful tool to many, many FW campers for a long time to come.
Thanks for undertaking this project.

Becky

Shan-Man,
All thanks and much appreciation for the effort you and your team of helpers put forth to developed this planning aid. I think you are wise to caution as to the use of the data. If not abused, its a tremendous help.

Once again, thanks to you and those who helped!!!

Hey Shan, we are going to the Fort this weekend and I have a GPSr, I can save tracks, what I am not sure about is if I can retrieve said tracks. Anyway would I need to stop at each site and mark it? Let me know what you need and I will try my best.

Donny
