    That's a horrible idea. What time?
    My tech pack came with the "breadcrumbs" feature on the map. Didn't need to, but followed them out. Until it went back to the trail....

    If you have google maps, you can download offline maps so you can still route somewhere when you don't have service. I plugged in my home address as I was leaving camp.

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    I always forget to do this. Always.

    I had Gaia going to see what kind of coverage it had. It kicked in at the one point I thought I had gone wrong.

    Is there some way on Google Maps to automatically download maps when you start navigation?

    I keep eyeing the Garmin overlander GPS deal. Then I see the price. Then I see the not-so-great reviews.

    You can download multiple maps offline for google. I have like everything within a 400-mile radius of my house downloaded. Then it just updates them automatically as needed when you're on wifi.

    edit: In case it isn't clear, this is something you do at home, then you have the downloaded maps when you need them

    For those that went to sleepy creek, would it be a nice place to kayak/swim? The wife and I are thinking about it going camping/kayaking somewhere but can only think of sleepy creek and Rappahannock river camp grounds.

    Kayaking, yes. Swimming, not so much. Lilypads everywhere

    I have a google phone, so may be different on another android phone, but mine will automatically download maps in the areas it sees me in most like Annapolis or Mechanicsville. I have to optionally download extra ones, so I did all of VA, all of MD + Western MD/Easter WVA, and up into PA/AOAA area since I figured those are the area's I'd likely be in without service for off-roading or whatever reason.

    from google downloaded map, I started getting a real map of the road just about as soon as I left the site.

    I have the area around Flagpole downloaded. I just always forget to do the rest. I should probably do something like this when I'm just staring at my phone. All this technology!

    The map built into my truck was able to pull up maps. The resolution sucks so that when you zoom out, you can't see any minor roads/trails, but it was good enough to let me know I was heading generally toward I-81.

    Mine usually ask if you want to DL if it recognizes dead spots in route. I also keep an old Garmin from 2012 in the truck for backup. I really like that it shows names of next street so I usually keep it on.

    I have a tear on one of mine that I rubber cemented back down. It's been at least 15k miles since I made that repair.

    Has anyone had a exhaust relocate done at RJ’s in Sterling va? I have RCI skid pans and every time I come back from Uwharrie NF the transfer case skid plate is up against the exhaust. I have tried washers as spacers but that cross member is only sheet metal and bends when pan takes a rock hit or high sides on log. I am going to make a bracket to go between the frame mounts to strengthen the cross member but I think I will do the relocate to eliminate that low spot. The rocks at BigCreek are challenging as are two trails at UNF.

    Weld some angle to strengthen it. I can do it for you for cheap.

    Anyone know if CVT tents sold out to another company? I got instant email replies when I bought this tent but can't get any answers now that I have a proplem with it.
