There is a 20 % discount code that is expiring tonight at midnight somewhere.  It is SWEET305


Don’t really know about the other questions at this time.  The books will have to be re-published when they are changed but there might be a way to just get updates for a while for existing book owners who aren’t thru hiking in a single season.  


Once you get something from Lulu they will send you spam occasionally  which has the discount codes.  


best wishes,

Thanks, Jerry for a stupendous job!


3 ?s, at your convenience:  1. A second to Yogi's question about a WY Book discount?  2. How will the updates be handled? It would be nice if one could somehow buy and download just the updated pages, although the waypoints would probably be wrong for the rest of the book.  3. Although I'll be done by the time it might happen, will you eventually add the alternate routes?


Already bought CO, NM, & MT/ID; waiting discount word on WY,

The Mapbook for Wyoming was just published and is available at  http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/bearcreek1035  or by taking the link on the front page for  www.bearcreeksurvey.com <mip://091cba30/www.bearcreeksurvey.com> .  That completes the four books of maps for the entire trail. This has been a long, hard struggle to get these all out there and I am really glad to finally get to this point.  


The total number of individual maps for the entire trail is 390.  They are reduced by 1/3 from the original topos to a scale of 1:36,000 (1”=3,000’).  They are gridded with UTM coordinates for easy GPS use and have precise compass declinations calculated for every map.  (Map declinations constantly change and become useless after 10-15 years so the ones on most USGS topos are wrong.)  


The waypoints have been finalized and are on the web site.  There were some coding corrections made so if you already have the Wyoming waypoints I would recommend getting the updated set.  


I will be going out each summer with the GPS gear to pick up trail changes.  The USFS is going to notify me when changes occur but in case that doesn’t always happen, I would appreciate hearing from hikers who find re-routed trail so I can keep these books current.  Best way is to let me know the waypoint id codes where the new piece begins and ends so I can plan accordingly.
