      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

just buy the TRIM maps you want. except that version2.0 with better contours is coming out. honestly there are only a few times when the accuracy is better than 1:50 000. I dont have to buy the CD I got all the maps free at work! smile.gif" border="0

Cavey - Yup, was there last fall. Saw at least the National Geo series there. 200 baht (about $5), along with every other peice of software, right there on Ko Sahn Rd. Of course, that's not all one can buy there... smile.gif" border="0

rat - Have a Garmin GPS and associated map software (for the US, they publish Canada as well). Both stink.

thanks for the info. i use the delorme map cd's for work and they come in handy for planning backcountry trips when i don't have the usgs quad map for a particular area. sitting at the computer is definitely not as fun as drinking beer over a large paper map. sounds like the canadian software isn't worth the cash.

Hey Rat -

For some reason, I can't send you a Private Message, or I would. But if you have access to the DeLorme CD, I wonder if you could make something for me. email to mattp@seanet.com
