mdoc and krosmith, thanks so much for the encouragement! Knowing that lots of folks are getting good use (and even just entertainment!) from it makes it all worthwhile. There's more good stuff to come!

Shan, I told you I would GPS loop 600 on Memorial day, I did it but someone else beat me to it so I didnt worry about it. I wanted to let you know that I am going back to the Fort for July 4th and if you needed anything else I would be honored to help, be it pictures or GPS routes or whatever, let me know. Donny

I just wanted to make a comment for the folks that are help Shan plot the loops here. Another option if you don't have a suitable GPS is the iPhone 3g. The Motion-X app for it is pretty cool. I just loaded it and started playing with it and haven't had a chance to look at track detail, but the waypoint data is pretty much spot on. Here is an example taken from my desk at work, ***************/HVmC6. The app is pretty cool. For those of you that follow Webmaster Pete on Facebook he has been posting waypoints from Disneyland and DCA using Motion-X.

The really nice thing about Motion-X is that you don't have to wait till you're tethered to your computer to upload the waypoint and track info. You can send it directly from the iPhone to Facebook, Twitter, or email.

I have absolutely no connection at all with Motion-X other than it is a really cool iPhone app.

Thanks for the recommendation... sure sounds like a more elegant solution than stuffing a bluetooth GPS in my cap and linking with my PocketPC! 'Course, until Sprint gets the right to host iPhones (never) I won't be able to get one. I'm sure it will help some folks though!

More Motion-X for iPhone info

I was playing around with Motion-X at lunch and recorded a track. When posting to Facebook or Twitter it just creates a link with no useful information other than being able to display the track on Google maps. Sending to email is very useful as it creates and sends both .gpx and .kmz files as attachments to email. Looking at the .gpx, it looks like it is recording wpts as a function of speed (or distance travelled). Coming back from lunch while in my car it was recording info every 2-3 secs, once I stopped and started walking in it recorded data every 9-10 secs. Accuracy looks pretty good too.

This is incredibly awesome. We spend a lot of time at the Fort during the fall and winter months and miss is so much the rest of the year. I now feel like I can be 'back home' anytime I wish. Your hard work is much appreciated. Thanks.

Wonderful, I hadn't messed with the GPS and Google Earth and .kmz files so I was worried if it worked or not, glad to help and if you need anything else let me know. We will be at the Fort the week of Christmas so we will meet you then.(Edit) Oops, you'll be gone when we get there, maybe some other time.
