GLMC water Grand Tour

The Glacial Lakes Motorcycle Club is sponsoring a new Grand Tour for 2011, An Affair With Water Grand Tour. In a nutshell, visit and photograph City Name signs on a building around the USA of cities that relate to water. Places with 'Bay|Brook|Cove|Creek|Fall|Harbor|Hydro|Lake|Ocean|Pool|Pond|Rapid|River|Sea|Spring|Stream|Water' in the name.

New this year: the word building. No standalone signs: Must be on a building.

Like last year I pulled out a few cities to get you started - 1,986 lines this time.

How'd I do last year? I didn't even go ride. I failed at 2010.

I've collected some data for any one to use, based on US Census Place Names from 2000. Each place name is postpended with 'City', 'Town', 'Village' or 'CDP'. This does not guarantee that the place will exist - some may not be real towns, some may have dried up and blown away. Use your best judgement when visiting these towns.

External Data -- this info was created from GPS Visualizer. Cut-n-paste your own list of cities into their site to create your own Google Map. Route files can be created using GebWeb.net's Travelling Salesman Problem Solver - enter up to 20 locations (lat, lon).

If you're into Javascript coding, you can use the Google Maps API to pull up your own custom route; no idea how many locations it supports.
