I just posted a course in the Wiss with this GPS punching app in case you want to give it a shot. You can just download it to your phone and get the PDF from the app.

It could be too long but I made it for some of the Wissahickon Wanderers guys. Let me know how it goes if you decide to give a shot.

Also, it's best if the punching radius is 30m and minimum accuracy is 100m.

Also, make sure you allow the app to track you "always" when using it (so it keeps working when your phone goes to sleep). I've been using it for a few weeks, and I like it. The finish trumpets are great!

Hey - thanks Greg!

I looked at the course - were you expecting people to go around on trails the whole time and use the bridges or go straight in places?

I will have to figure out how to do all the things the app told me I needed to do to use it. :)

Yeah, I was. That's why I put the "stay on the trails" bit on the map. We'll see if they actually follow that rule.

It can get super long that way, but I was thinking that there's also no need to do the whole course.

Missed the "stay on trails" bit.

The hard part will be going all the way to the finish and not bailing after #6 when a legit route choice goes by my corner!
