Viewing The CBC Circle On Your Smart Phone!
As of November 2014, the following doesn't seem to be valid any more. But this new link will take you to an online map of the circle and the areas:
This is really cool, but it only works if:
1. You have a Google account (free, easy)
2. You have a smart phone, like an iPhone (easy, but no so free)
3. You have a cell phone signal. (Good luck in most of the Atascosa Highlands...)
But if you meet these conditions, you can go online and see the edge of this CBC circle in Google maps. You need the following link to navigate to the public map with the circle that I created in my own Google "My places" account, but you need to click on it from within your smart phone. So if you're at your laptop or desktop, copy this link and paste it in an email to yourself. Open that email on your phone and click on the link.
If you're not logged into your Google account, do so.
Add this to your maps by saving to "My places."
This is all very new to me, so let me know how this works and if I need to add any information.
