Cant remember if I put this here or not, but I've been tracing the dirt roads in the Dirt Devil area to minimize travel time on asphalt. Each roadway has its own individual named path that should work in Gaia. Just click on the road path on the screen and the road name should come up. If you import it into Google Earth you should be able to see all the road names in a drop down list too. As of right now there are 73 roads in here. I realize the open roads changes often in this area, and some things may not be passable, but I haven't been trying to keep up with all of that. I just use it to locate roads and then I quit looking at it while I drive. Its a good way to not be stuck on asphalt looking for back roads. It's a .kmz file, but I have been able to import .kmz files to Garmin Basecamp and Gaia without any issues.

We have had rain and pretty nasty weather for a while now, so when I woke up this morning to sun and blue skies I was out the door. This is my 60 mile drive on the dirt devil roads today in Bon Aqua, Tn. My first time out there actually. Some of the river crossings got a little deeper than expected. Not sure if its always like that or if it's just because we have had rain lately. I had one crossing that I had to just turn around at. It was a river. I'd say about 20% are paved roads that I took while searching other trails to take. It ended up being a 5 hour adventure, and its basically a loop. Its a really good Sunday drive to say the least!!!
I’m trying to download this, but it is in xml text and can’t be read by Gaia??

That's strange. That one is a GPX file when I download it. Try the file that I put on here on August 28th. The one where I traced all the roads I could find for the Dirt Devil. That is a KMZ file. I'm downloading it from a PC not my phone though.

The Daniel Boone backcountry byway has a facebook site and cartotracks offers a live GPS tracking map for just a few bucks. It is a project by the SFWDA (southern four wheel drive assoc) which deserves our support for keeping off pavement driving alive!
