8.4 mi. of SR 125 from the summit of Middlebury Gap to E. Middlebury is under construction. Expect short delays at one-way traffic points. From the summit to Breadloaf (2.7 mi.) is unpaved. From Ripton to E. Middlebury (2.7 mi.) is unpaved. Consider Brandon Gap as an alternate.

From the thread "Anyone using SPoT Tracker for Trips?":
... please tell me straight up if there is a cheap, reliable, battery friendly GPS unit out there that simply gives coordinates in addition to the basic info you get from standard bike computers? ...

Hi Fanwaar,

I started a new thread to avert topic drift and keep your question visible.

There are several. Your best best is to browse the available units and their specs at, the GPS information central. What they don't have there, they link to. None of us can know better than you just what features are most important for you.

Most of the rugged hand-held units run on two AA cells for 12 hours more or less. If you plan on just a few 5-minute sessions a day to get coordinates, they will work for weeks.

Please let us know what you choose and why. It will interest other riders of far-out places, I am sure.


GPS Discussion / Garmin software for Mac OS X: Experience?

In another thread, Gary Sherck raises the question of managing Garmin maps, waypoints, routes, and tracks on his Mac. Garmin has been actively developing software for the Mac, but I have not seen much from its users. If you have used it, could you tell us how well it works; that is, give us a mini review please? How does it compare with MapSource?


General Discussion / Partial RSS feed

The RSS feed shows only about half of the new posts every day here, using Firefox 3.0.5. Maybe operator error by this RSS newbie.

I look at the list of topics containing new posts from RSS, then go to the web site and see many more. How is it working for you?
