I did find the area with only the poem. But the hints will save many weeks of searching. Well, ms slows me down a bit, lol... The poem is pretty accurate by itself. In my trip anyway. The hints all solidify the area, the route and the exact spot (on paper at least)... I used Google map and GIS maps. USGS is not absolutely necessary since GE has that function built in. I also found he air traffic map (interactive) to be of assistance...
I did not have money to purchase the books at first; but after a month and three weeks of BOTG and driving around and around and attempts at walking 13 miles, I had to find another way in there... I have purchased a high-clearance pickup with 4WD and the map shows the 4WD roadways among other features...
Fire restrictions and cash depletion are in effect right at the moment. I like the 4th weekend and the week after the 4th as possible BOTG again...
My first year anniversity of finding about the chase is June 30th... My first BOTG was the two weeks of July 4th and next week 2017.
I forgot to relate that the GIS map online is 1985 vintage. They were updated in 1987... I looked at the 1850s maps; but they did not help me (much)...

why did you look at 1850s maps? To my knowledge GE does not have USGS built in. You can get USGS overlays but they are not part of google earth.

When you are creating history it is always Good to become familiar with ALL the possibilities.

GE gives you the elevation in the right bottom. It nearly replaces the USGS. I do have the USGS maps printed as well.
I found the air traffic maps very beneficial with the hints.
just saying ss
