How about, once you make your start dot, move your cursor away from it a little in the direction you rode. It should make a box so that you can get the squiggle lines instead of just straight lines. But, your mouse has to be just a little bit away to change from hand to box.
Hi Sharon, I'm sorry for not getting with you sooner. For handrawn: get on GE, click on 'add a path' (On the top, looks like 3 squares). Name the path, choose color, make the size of the line at least 2. Click on GE at the beginning of your ride, & draw away. If you move mouse to the top right side of GE a coouple circles w/ arrows appear, use the bottom one to move the GE page around. When you get all done, click OK. then Right click on the path in your list of places, click 'save as'. from your documents you can then download into a blog or to track logs. From there, you can copy & paste to your vet card. To measure the trail: right click on the path at GE, click copy. go to http://www.emaltd.net/google/gec/utilities/index.asp?l=en then paste the path from GE in the box. Click on british units, then calculate.
