Out for the first time on Earl's Trails, area just west of Norwottuck on the north side of the range.
Basemap by Eddie. Contours are excellent.
I'm sure it will take longer than expected, though how much depends on how accurate/detailed I want to be. The standards have changed a lot over the years, along with people's expectations. I think the hardest will be the vegetation, but I will probably not be as anal about it as it seems the mapper was on other maps I've seen. And the bike trails will take some extra time as they are constantly bending.
Eddie also sent a bunch of templates with vegetation on them. I have to figure out how to incorporate them, and see if they are useful. Today was just a first effort to get things started. At least I managed (with help from Alex last week) to print out a copy of the basemap.
Some nice woods.
