Progress Map

[By popular request, I'm experimenting with a map of Mark & Dan's progress on the trail.  This is my first attempt, so please don't laugh if it's an utter failure.  My plan is to keep this map updated as we receive dispatches from Mark.  I'll try to keep it continuously posted at the top of the blog, so please check for new posts and reports from the trail below.  I have downloaded the GPS coordinates for the entire trail, which you can click through section-by-section.  The progress plot points will always be in the first map, so you won't be able to see them as you click through the trail sections.  Sorry, these are the limits of my computer programming abilities.  If you find this map completely useless, let me know in the comments and I'll pull it down.]

UPDATE: I'm going to pummel whoever invented this program.  I just spent an hour and half adding plot points and photos to the map, none of which saved despite pressing "save" each time I added something.  Mr. Google, I demand satisfaction!

  1. Michael, maybe you can just show the segment that they are travelling through and then add a link to the larger Pacific Coast Trail map.
