The app is called "Scenic". I use it for trip planning and for tracking my mileage. It's not free but it's also not too expensive. The only problem with it is that it's only for iPhone. Not compatible with Android

jwaller is loving life, on his shiny red Ural hack.
Rolling through the hill country, one hand on the throttle .
It moves about as fast as ketchup flowing from the bottle.
Ketchup. Ketchup.

The Camino Real passes close by my house, so let me know when and I'll ride part of it with you.

Kent and I are going to coordinate a tech day to be held at my house in late September. We can talk about setup and clutch maintenance , changing out the headlight, etc.

Woo-hoo. Back home now. I'll complete the ride report tomorrow. Let's just say, in the end, it was all about coming in on a wing and a prayer.

Wouldn't be surprised next time you ask your daughter if she wants to go for a ride she'll be "busy" :)
