Re: [RC] Very Virtual Endurance - Steph Teeter

We're hoping to work with Polar on a sponsorship of sorts for the VV rides. They are trying to penetrate the US market with their combo GPS/HRM units ... and ... the next gen will include a feature to download track logs to Google Earth with just a push of a button. (via infrared technology which is either embedded in the computer, or can be added through a USB port).

Since VV is unreal, which we all know, why do we have to do the GPS
thing if we already know the miles we are doing?

My husband got me a GPS for Christmas two years ago and it sat on the counter for a full year before John offered the first VV March Madness. That pushed me to actually *read the book* and discover that *wonder of wonders* I could set the numbers large enough to read them without glasses (the main reason I hadn't bothered with carrying it!)

Through the VV rides I learned to use Google Earth. I have put all my trails on my Google Earth set up...and I am addicted to it like some people are to video games. I love flying over my neighborhood, zooming in on the mountains and looking for old road beds that might be possible new trails for me. I'm trying to figure out how to put the whole Longstreet Trail on one that others can visit that won't just be a still shot (anybody want to show me how?)
