I just got my reservations but they do not have a group set up . I asked for first floor preferably with bike parking outside the door.
Mar 19, 2019, 11:24 PM
Bill they been changed Day 1 Palestine revised is he one you want.
Mar 20, 2019, 12:20 AM
@Hugh Jones: Did you do this route on Basecamp? On my basecamp it does not make sense. Mine is probably not interpreting it the same.
Mar 21, 2019, 1:25 AM
@Bill Jimenez: hey Bill, I made the routes. If you send me your email I can send them to you tomorrow. And yes they were made on basecamp.

Unable to open files to see the revised event
Mar 20, 2019, 12:52 AM
@Brian Loveless: these files are gpx files. So you can download them to a gps device.
Mar 20, 2019, 12:38 PM
@Carlos Lopez: the files are gbd and are map source files. Not all gps devices can open them, most gps use gpx. If anyone has a jpg of the route that would help with the people that don’t have a gps to pull it up on. :)

Mar 21, 2019, 11:06 AM
Looking at GPS. What is a good one to get?
And do that GPS uses the basecamp everyone is talking about?
Mar 21, 2019, 3:08 PM
Garmin is the one that uses Base Camp. I like Garmin.
Mar 21, 2019, 7:19 PM
@Hugh Jones: any particularly mode would be a good one?
Mar 22, 2019, 1:15 AM
@Larry Nixon III: Look for a refurbished 660 or 665 but make sure you can download your own routes.
Mar 22, 2019, 11:48 AM
I’m still sick. Flu. Ugh!
Mar 22, 2019, 10:20 AM
@Scharlene: Hope you get well!
Mar 23, 2019, 12:20 AM
I went to the Garmin website and bought a refurbished Zumo 590 LM. I think new one is the 595 LM is the one to get. It cost a lot less refurbished. Same warranty. The only difference is the box.

I worked the route some more. It did not seem to do right on my base camp. It had some over and backs and also the start was taking me north onto 66 so I compared to Lyles map and added a few more shaping points to correct that and also extended it to the hotel. Should I post it?
Mar 26, 2019, 3:22 PM
You can if you would like. I am not sure what is going on with the routes or if it is the site.
Mar 26, 2019, 11:17 PM
@Hugh Jones: I dont remember if I read it somewhere or heard it on a video but it was said that if you are planning to share your route with others, you need to have enough shaping points so that other devices can read it correctly. All routes are just a list of shaping points and the different software interprets the best route from point to point depending on the settings.
Mar 31, 2019, 2:33 PM
Once I am happy with a route, I will go back and add shaping points at every turn and also mark all shaping points to not alert me on arrival. I only want to be alerted at important waypoints. Also I will set the start time on the first one. the rest of the route will recalculate. Or you can set the arrival time at the end or lunch stop.

Im booked and can cancel up to Friday in case bad weather. I got 2 queen beds if anyone wants to save some $.

@Lyle Aley: little bit of rain ain’t gonna stop the DFW Cruisers.
Apr 1, 2019, 7:57 PM
@Carlos Lopez: FYI rain is predicted Friday and Saturday but I guess that could change
Apr 1, 2019, 8:19 PM
First ride of Spring! The temps look good, so I don't mind some rain :)
Apr 1, 2019, 8:52 PM
I just looked at how much time is required for cancellation on my hotel room. The email says this:

This to confirm your reservation for the above listed dates is now confirmed. Your room will be held for
your arrival and will be charged one nights room and tax if you fail to arrive. If you would like to cancel
without a charge, you must do so by 4:00 pm on the date of arrival.
Apr 2, 2019, 7:58 PM
I’ll probably keep my reservation, if we have to cancel the ride I’ll just drive out there.
Apr 2, 2019, 8:07 PM
Ride had to be canceled because of the expected rain for Saturday and Sunday. We will be posting this ride or another ride sometime soon.
