This is the route we ran, which follows the "hwm13" track.  We only made it through about 80 of the 140 miles of the full track.

You better watch where you're going and remember where you been.

Thank you for sharing.  I would be honored to participate in a trip that you lead through some of the unshared territory.  As always, tread lightly.

Jayston and Crew,
I got the maps downloaded.  forunnin directed me to them.  Thank You to Jayston and forunnin!

When it come to digital maps, I'm lost in the sauce.  I guess I'm an old school, hard copy, topo with compass guy.  ARMY kinda engrained that into me.  How or what can I use the digital maps with?  Junk I have available:  Graman Rino 120.  Yes, older technology I picked up before I went down range, Oct 2004.  The wife does have a Kendal Fire that is a couple years old.  I'm sure the second is the better of the two.

My strongest recommendation is to download backcountry navigator on the Kindle and get a gps puck to attach to it.

The Kendal would be a much larger view than a phone but it looks like backcountry navigator is also available for phone (Android) use also?

Yep, I use my phone and tablet for both. The phone does good but the screen isn't as user friendly.

This program works so well that I haven't taken the time to try anything else!

In all seriousness, for 90% of my travel I have never had to touch another program. I like small, lightweight and simple applications that never create an issue. I guess, in a sense... reliability. BCNAV has been nothing but flawless.

For that other 10% I used an atlas or paper map.

So there are two versions of BCNAV; Free and $11.99.  I didn't see or notices differences between the two.  I'm also not a digital map kind of guy.  Is the $11.99 version  worth it?

I believe so, when I bought it 5 years ago it was only 3.99!

Free version is 21 day demo...$12 is getting a little steep for an app, I've also had it for awhile and didn't pay that much...I'm not sure if I would shell out that much at this point...although it does do pretty much everything I want...

I have the "free trial" version on my phone.  Downloaded it last September, and it's still working.  I'm running it on my Android Galaxy Rugby Pro, and other than the smallish screen, have been pretty happy with it overall.  I keep thinking I need to pay for the full version, but it just keeps on working....
