I've tried to place an ad in the "companions wanted" section a couple times but it does not seem to work as I can't locate my own ad.
As you climb Togwotee Pass, keep your fingers crossed for clear weather just over the top for a view of the Tetons. It's the most magnificent view I know.
That reminds me...When I did that portion of the TransAm back in '00 there was a joint ACA/U.S.F.S. cyclist only primitive camp site on the west slope of Togwotee, maybe 5 miles up from Moran. If it still exists and is listed on the map, I highly recommend it. It has an amazing view of the Tetons. It was a bit difficult to access. There was a post-rail fence with a gap in it and a sign indicating no motor vehicles were allowed. I had to push my through the gap and up a small hill and walk with the bike a bit further, but it was worth it. There was a bear locker and, IIRC, a picnic table or two, but that was basically it. Saw some moose tracks and stumps that had been ripped up, likely by bears looking for grub. No water or toilet, so you'd have to practice primitive camping techniques. You'd also have to carry everything you need from DuBois. (I was going east to west.)
For cyclists who do not register in advance or who are not eligible to receive access to the base, you may legally ride on the shoulder of I-5 between Las Pulgas Rd. and Oceanside (Exits 62 to 54). For safety reasons, cyclists should exit and re-enter the freeway at the Aliso Creek Rest Area about midway through this stretch.
Walla Walla the town so nice they named it twice. Section 7, Map 99 of the ACA Lewis & Clark Bicycle Trail shows Detail A as crossing Hwy 12 at Lower Waitsburg Rd/N. Clinton St. This highway crossing is not open to pedestrians/cyclists. Coming in westbound on Middle Waitsburg Rd as you pass the airport turn left onto Blue Mountain Dr. and immediately right onto Rainer Dr./Wellington Ave. which will lead you under Hwy 12 and into Walla Walla. https://ridewithgps.com/routes/18002423
I understand that downloads for the northern routes are not available for RideWithGPS.
You mention the "Bike Travel Association." I've never heard of this organization.
You list the distance of the TransAm as 4275. I guess it might have been that when you rode, but the ACA currently lists the distance as 4228.
Not sure how the 200 waypoint limitation comes into play.
We do not recommend using the service points on the Edge 1000 yet. We have found the following limitations:
The device can only store 200 waypoints at any one time, regardless of where the file is stored. In a majority of cases, that will be enough for one section only. As you travel from one section to the next, you will need to remove old points before adding new ones.
Deleting and replacing points is very difficult. We have found only 1 way to do this:
Manually deleting points one at a time on the device
Consider viewing service points using your mobile device. It offers larger screen, quick browsing, higher capacity for all points along a route, and more details about each point.
If you still want to use the service points on your Edge device accounting for the limitations, see the FAQ on this subject for more information.
