View Full Version : MINIPalooza 2012 Run Leaders and Sweepers Needed

August 7th, 2012, 02:44 PM
We need 6 volunteers, preferably with Garmin GPS's capable of reading GPX map files. These individuals will be the lead car and the tail car (sweeper) in one of 3 groups making the run on Saturday. Please post if you might be interested.

We need a sweeper in the back, as well.

No Garmin. I will be a caboose.

I can help if necessary so can my wife.

OK, looks like I will be able to make it for the drive. Not sure whether I'll have 0, 2 or 3 kids along for the ride. If I have three, I may need someone to let one of them ride shotgun so one of them doesn't have to cram into the rear seat behind me. And, I think I figured out what was wrong with my radio during the Ice Cream Run, so hopefully I'll have some clear communication this time. I also bought some new handhelds as back up.

So, hope to see everyone Saturday morning!

I have an old garmin gps (street pilot c330) and am trying to make it to this event. How do you load the maps? As soon as I have confirmation I'll be there I don't mind helping, though I'd be more comfortable as a sweeper most likely.

I just purchased a garmin and have loaded the map. I am a rookie at this so toward the back is perforable. JD, what time are you leaving Durham? We can convoy together if that is okay?

Some instructions on loading the gpx files.

Hey Jeff!!

I could use a navigator if one of your kid's wants to ride with me!
