March Mapping Madness

March 2022 has been filled with a crazy amount of updates to The ADT Guide!

As long-time members know, I try to share the new updates via email as they happen. But this month, the hiker tips, new traces, and affiliate trail updates have happened with such frequency – sometimes, I just push back from the desk and laugh.

While ADT Guide subscribers get updates for Directions, Maps, and Gaia GPS in real-time (and likely see this multiple times a week) ...

That's right - 9,462 waypoints and counting!

But finding a free moment to knock out an 'Update' blog post to the website has been challenging of late. And for that, I apologize.

Let's catch up!
