Chemin de Saint Jacques; Now in Google Earth format

Recently (April 2006) Grant Spangler put up three files of the Camino Frances in Spain; formatted for Google Earth. With his files you can fly along the track from Roncesvalles to Santiago, and you can drop down anywhere to view details in close-up. For more, see Grant Spangler's posting on the Ultreya discussion group.

This inspired me to convert our 2005 track to Moissac (France) to beautiful Google maps format. You can download it (kml format, zipped) here. The raw kml file is here. Nota bene: we had various problems with GPS (summarised with a nice image here).

Help! I'm still looking for waypoints and tracks from Moissac to Roncesvalles.

Thank you

Latest news (2006-June-03)
Grant Spangler just Googled and found me a file of waypoints along the GR65 in France. This is downloadable from the excellent site Niet naar Santiago en weer terug. The file is in kmz format so, if you have Google Earth, it should open automagically. It doesnt have the track, but it does have waypoints; all the way from Beekbergen (NL), via Moissac, to St Jean Pied de Port, and back to Vlissingen. It is complete with comments (in het Nederlands / in Dutch).
And I found some useful maps, at at another excellent site À VTT sur les chemins de Compostelle.
But that still leaves me looking for the coordinates (UTM etc) of the track onward from Moissac to the French border ... If you can help

Sorry, but a Javascript-enabled browser is required to email me.
