Google Earth .kml File?

Hi,

Right now I’m sitting in South Wales (GW) and I’m trying to find out which SOTA might be closest to me. On http://www.sotawatch.org/summits.php you can search from your location but sometimes you are not exactly sure where your holiday will bring you. The same database offers a .kml file for each summit. Is there a way to get one .kml file for either a “region within association” or the whole “association”?
For South Wales I downloaded each individual .kml file for all 41 summits and the re-aranged them into one .kml file; but that’s not fun if you are dealing with Western Scotland and 347 summits …
Any ideas?

PS: on 25.12.08 I quickly climbed Sugar Loaf (GW/SW-011) but I had not rig with me (stayed back in HB)

In reply to HB9CZF:

Nigel,

Tnx for your reply but I can’t find “file galleries” on your webpage. Or do I have to register and log in?

Hi, Yes I think you do need to register/login. Its not my webpage, but a very good source of summit info.

The file is also here:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Summits/files/Maps/
You also need to register/login for Yahoo.
