    Thanks, Dan. I've attempted a submission on a classic. Of course, I found this thread after my first try - so I made some changes to my formatting. Let me know if I suck...

    There was a color code for segments on a map - could you state them for the class? Thanks.

    -- OK, found it in my notes:

    Black - Access Road
    Blue - 4WD or walking trail
    Green - Approach
    Red - Technical Canyon

    I have not been putting in any driving segments as I figure these people can figure out from a map.
