I was not planning on it, but I just updated the gpx file of all the trails for 
All the updated maps are up there now.  Everything for MOGA is there.  
I did not update the web page so the map dates are wrong, everything on there 
is current as of today.
There are new versions of my trails, my topos, and my POIs.  If you have city 
navigator, use these.
If you do not, use the map in other maps.  It is not transparent but it has 
everything on it.  It could work better in the GPS, it disappears at about .8 
miles zoom.  But that should not be a problem.
Also the map in other maps is simply the best map of the area available.  So it 
is the best thing to use for planning once you get your PQ as it will open in 
Even if you do not have a Garmin, you can install mapsource and then install 
other maps.  Directions are here:
And as mentioned above, there is also a gpx file of all the trails in MO/IL

I went up to the park yesterday and GPSed all kinds of stuff including all the 
trails. (The Ranger even unlocked the gate to the group camp for me.)   I got 
my maps updated but not in time for the on line compiler to compile the new 
maps last night.  So after they compile tonight, I will make a new installer 
for all the mapsets.  I will post a note when you can download and install them.
They were doing lots of burning up there –it was neat watching it on the trail 
across the lake.  I hope no caches got burned up!  They had also burned part of 
the area and used the trail as a fire break-you could really see the impact of 
the fire-lots of flowers blooming where they burned.
I was utterly shocked when I saw the signs in the historic site showing the 
2008 flood level.   Even the overlook floor was underwater!
Are the roads to access the caches from the previous MOGAs going to be open on 
Friday or will we only be able to cache in the State Park or walk/bike in?  
Speaking of the flood, have the low lying caches been checked to see if they 
are still there?  What was the elevation of the flood?
