Many of the routes had incorrect locations written for them most likely due to new route development ('7th from the left is no longer valid). I've updated them and used other markers such as the cutoff stump (Bean Fiddler) or the tan painted hangers (And the Thunder Rolls, Time will tell). Oct 6, 2015
