I don't know if you know what Strava is, but I was looking at their "heat map" - a compilation of all gps tracks from their users. You can see that at least a few Laramie Daze O-er's use Strava. I think you can see a few routes from the One Cowboy Relay at Pelican Bay:
Plus a few routes from the Rocky Mt. O-fest elsewhere.

Fortunately I am fairly ignorant of such things, being left handed and what all. At one time I was totally ignorant, but people keep posting things like this on my log. If it happens again, I may have to abandon the log and switch to a living tree, probably a Catalpa Tree, which is one of my favorites.

By the way, if you haven't started skiing, you better hurry up. It looks like winter is only scheduled to last about 1 week this year, and as of today that week has come and gone. Of course there are a still snow fumes that may linger for a while, but just try skiing on fumes! Good luck, and may all your Birkies take place at 25 below.

Yes. I am one of those Strava people . It is neat how on the latest global heat maps solitary tracks are showing up . I have quite a few around the planet that I can recognize as my own on the global heat map .

I was not going to out you, Ian. But it is probably always wise to preempt racer X8A7; there is never telling what those resourceful folks down in Greeley might do next. These are desperate times down there, as they struggle mightily to alleviate an unprecedented shortage of elementary school teachers, and might be inclined to take captive even retired 3M professionals, and set them to work in educating their children.

Some mappers are apparently using Strava to crowdsource GPS data for trails. Thankfully, most of your most recent mapping venues are relatively unmarred by such obvious handrails.
