Unfortunately I don't know the source program, as I got it from somebody off of a flash drive. I can use it on my GPS (Garmin Oregon 600) when I put it directly on the SD card in the correct folder, but just can't figure out how to get it into Basecamp on my mac. It seems there's a way to import it directly from the GPS into basecamp as well, but not sure how to do that as Basecamp doesn't seem to recognize the file from my GPS either.

Wilderness is not a luxury but necessity of the human spirit.
