QOS, reading a GPS book is, to me, like swimming in quicksand! I've found the best way to learn it to take the book and the GPS and go out and try stuff. When you don't know how to do what you want to do, look it up then immediately do it.

I like the idea of logging mileage. Recon it's a good time to start what with it being the beginning of the year!

You are right! Also, you can look on Youtube and there are videos there to help you figure it out. LOL I am kinda lazy!

We ought to start a thread on logging miles.....you can post updates with daily ride mileage and YTD totals. Might inspire the competitive spirit to get out and ride more.

And I am nominating YOU to start that thread!!!! I will post on it!!

I will do that. What is the best way??? Just start a thread or should I request a sticky??? I assume this area.....trail riding....is the best place for it. I'm hoping there would be enough participation to keep it at the top anyway.

I think you should request a sticky. If the participation ends up not warranting a sticky, it can always be unstuck.

There'll be times when people just can't get out and ride so there'll be times when it would drop off the first page--and promptly be forgotten by the most of us!

I'm not sure what the best way to manage the thread might be. Each person keep editing/updating their first post? Keep adding posts as we go? Any thoughts, anyone?

I would say update their first post for mileage. Stories, questions, etc. can be posted separate. Would that work?

Seems worth a try. We could each keep a running list of date, mileage, and total miles for the year? Be a starting point, at least.
