[cdt-l] Re: GPS waypoints
[ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ]
I looked at a copy of that book last year. It is GPS waypoints for the Cont=
inental Divide not the CDT. As I remember it has lots of waypoints for car =
travel along the states of the Continental Divide (Montana, Idaho, Wyoming,=
Colorado, and New Mexico). I didn't think it would be helpful to hike with.
I think the best bet is getting good maps with the lat/longs or UTM's along=
the borders. Also get a map with the markings for your home area. THen pra=
ctice using the coordinates. Pick a point on the map and find its coordinat=
es. Enter the coordinates in the GPS and gor for a hike (or drive) and see =
if you can find the point. Have a friend make a point in a park, then see i=
f you can find it.
You don't need to be right on. It you are looking for where a trail crosses=
a stream or road you only need to get close enough to see the intersection=
when you are hiking. We put in coordinates several times that were close e=
nough to "find" the trail when it was "lost".
