The OP was also talking river mile information to track progress and points of interest I believe. Largely based on one or more guide books. Google is a good idea to get ideas and find developed spots but some folks want more. I did a trip on the John Day a few years ago and had a great book along with me, but the difficulty was finding the locations discussed in the book, even with a GPS, you spend more time looking at a GPS or book than the scenery. Getting that all in ahead of time allows for more time enjoying the river and history/geology/what ever you're into... Just my opinion.

UTM to Latitude and Longitude Converter

The above link is a fill in the blank conversion program for the location scheme used by the BLM on the Upper MO River Guide Book camp site information. It converts to Lat Lon format as used on my Garmin Mapsource Program.

I am in the process of making a route of the entire 149 miles using this data for campsites.

Will be glad to share this Garmin GPS database file to anyone interested soon as I finish it. Will email it, so contact me thru Mountain Buzz. Appreciate all the information from all of you folks.
