Temps have spiked a bit (77F right now) so I’m doing some virtual housekeeping.
killed disqus comments
disqus was problematic for several reasons so I edited out that functionality and recompiled the site. They could come back but I am experimenting with linking to a twitter thread for each post (see the bottom).
My dashcam is an old android phone with the AutoBoy app; the paid version was a few bucks, maybe $3 at the time.
I save some clips and go back and review them later. I made a couple screencaps and updated the related blog posts.

google maps cleanout
I’ve kept my GPS waypoints in two places so far:
- in a Google My Maps map with multiple layers
- in the android phone in Osmand+
There are a few problems with this
- I wanted to have a unified collection
- My Maps has a limit on layers
- It is hard to dedupe or otherwise edit waypoints in either application
I ended up exporting from My Maps in KMZ format, and from Osmand in GPX. I exported from those into CSV using gpsbabel so I could edit/dedupe/etc with normal human tools. After deduping there are about 650 discrete waypoints.
I broke up the edit/deduped data into separate CSV by waypoint type (boondocking, to-see, etc) and wrote a dinky script that recombines them into a “universal csv” file annotated with column headers and exports a GENERAL and PERSONAL gpx files. I import those into both My Maps and into Osmand.
Now that the work is done going forward:
- edit the appropriate .csv file
- run the export script
- update google/osmand as desired
