    Gunslinger, you are a gentleman and a scholar! Thank you very much for taking the time to provide me with these starting points. I'll pick up a 2gb MicroSD card at lunch today and review the links.

    The campsite we frequent the most has a hand-drawn paper map with their trails identified. (It is hand drawn, picture something my Mom would have drawn when I was 18 to me to send me for the first time to the market on my own.)


    I was hoping to upload that hand drawn map onto the Garmin and then name the trailheads and drop waypoints onto the map.

    Am I hoping for too much out of the technology?

    There are utilities that let you do that but I've never used them.

    I think I'd just add waypoints for the trail heads, then ride the trails and save the tracks.

    You can drop in waypoints for places that are landmarks. I have done that with my Garmin. Make sure to actually stop and NAME the waypoint. LOL I made some waypoints and then couldn't remember what they were so name them like "Waterfall" or "windchimes" or whatever landmark there is - boulder rock, etc. That way when you are looking at it on the map it will make more sense to you.

    Another Garmin eTrex Venture HC lover here. I am technologically challenged and can manage it. I also started using it taking the kids out Geocaching. Its also reasonably priced.

    Dang it! Heavy rain expected Monday and Tuesday....1 to 2 inches overnight Monday night.

    I think I'll pull out and head to Cataloochee Tuesday morning rather than Monday morning....

    We had the rain Thursday Friday and expect more today and maybe tomorrow. After the drought in Missouri, I can't complain about the rain. Especially now that I am a horse owner. My barn owner needs it badly. He is hoping to not round bale the pasture pets (my orse, his horse, and his associate's horse) until November and wants a good cutting of his hay field on oct 1.

    Safe journey to you!!

    Went trail riding and used my new eTrex 30 today!! We did two short rides. All I can say is I have completely underestimated my distance. We did a flat trail in the valley and it mapped out to 3.5 miles. Both riding partners were shocked at the distance. They thought it was much less. I'm excited to load my tracks to the computer and see how they turn out.
