You can print them, load them into GPS, Google earth/map overlays, or whatever.

Enjoy.

Very cool. Thanks for the link.

I have a GPS program that allows me to upload topo maps, so hopefully I can figure it out. ;) 8)

This great guy told me about this program call Turbo GPS.

Kind of in depth as far as uploading your own maps and such, but it does great for gps tracks and such. I now know why you pay so much for a company to enter all the data into the maps and upload them ready for your GPS. :lol:

I read Hunner uses, Delomre Topo USA. From the website it looks prettry cool, but its not WM5 or PPC compatible. Its a $100 bucks for the laptop sofware. If I was do something like his trip, I would probably get something like that too.
