OK, I've seen some posted a couple of times, but I guess I'm not putting in the right keywords to search. Who can help in finding a site where I put in my route and it gives me mileage and elevation stats? Thanks!
I've been using routeslip.com, but it just lost most of my saved routes. It's buggy, too bad, it has some nice features.
For quick testing of routes to check mileage and elevations, toporoute.com is fast to use. I have this saved "route" so I can start with a zoomed-in location, then I do "Clear Route" to start from scratch. It follows roads, so there's a lot less clicking needed to draw a route. Then click "Elevation" and it'll plot the elevation graph, and give you total miles. The only way to save a route is to click "Link to Route" which gives it a random URL link. Then I email the link to myself or post it on a web page.
Thanks! Routeslip was the one I was trying to remember. But you're right... buggy and didn't work. Toporoute.com did the trick, however! (If you're curious, here's want I want to do if the weather cooperates tomorrow: http://www.toporoute.com/cgi-bin/get...XMERQLXJXICPXU)
It's interesting to click on someone else's toporoute links. You don't know where you are, so you keep zooming out until you recognize the region. First, I guessed Wisconson or Minnesota (I didn't see your Location under your avatar), then finally saw the state names on the large map.
toporoute can't mark the turns, or give the route a title, but it is fast to use. It's a game to see just how far ahead you can click on the road and have it follow your intended route, instead of detouring to a major road.
