I've got some GPS route that start and end in St. Clairsville, Oh.............

I think they can be reworked to start and end in Marietta.

Anyone able to look at them and adjust?

Jason,

I got the files, and will work on them over the next couple of weeks. I get some down time at work where I only have to monitor radio calls. It is hit or miss so it might take a while.

How many rooms did you book/block? just curious, that really is an awesome price for that holiday, everything else around there will be 2x that price, if you can get a room..

I'd say book early for sure.
Marietta Cab/Taxi co., is very low price, fast, and courteous also. so trips to the "west end, and Harmar" or even Parkersburg, are like the price of a beverage when sharing a taxi.

:great: :great: ;)

If you can, shoot me the gps maps also, I can look them over, and add some nice routes.

I have reworked the gps files and route sheets to start and end in Marietta. I modified the gps files to put any way points after turns. My gps will split longer trips into segments and recalculate after a marked way point. By moving the way points it will do that after you make the turn not as it comes up. If you want to run them in the opposite direction you will have to rework them.

Trip 1 and 4 are same with small changes and the addition of the stop at Jimbo Clarks(Google maps named JimBo's Burgers and Beer)

I haven't ever been on these routes, I don't know what the road condition or suitability for a ride are.

I use Garmin Basecamp with the fastest routing option and avoidance for dirt roads. One of my GPS units doesn't have curvy roads routing and I don't like to ride our C-10 two up on dirt.

UPDATE June 10th.

9 Rooms Booked. More avaliable!

Onsite bar & restaurant are not open as of today due to lack of demand. Front desk said they are getting busier by the day and would expect them to be open by the 4th of July weekend.

unfortunately the pool is closed and won't be opened this season (we're hearing this at other venues too)

BOOK THOSE ROOMS.
