Thanks for the kind words.  August was consumed with other activities than
OSM. At Elliot Plack's prompting a github repo was established.[1]  There
are a number of data questions that have come up.  Just like the USBR 90
project in Arizona where I established a relationship with the state
bicycle coordinator, I am using a similar approach with this effort. Teton
Idaho has been thankful for a few questions that I have brought up.  I sent
off additional questions this morning.  In addition, the repo has
educational qualities to it.  I believe that will be far more important
than just shoving the data into OSM.
