For the above map, you have to zoom in until the map is seen. The GPS was off for some reason that day. I will do my best here to describe the track. We started by going around the apartment building and then found a track at the corner of Folsom and the post office that led toward the Embarcadero. Then is was similar, but in reverse, to the first track. At the pin that says "Barrier" was in front of a large hotel. The barrier was noted because the track appeared to act like the barrier was not there. The dogs indicated the track went where the barrier was. This means that the person who has Hercules walked there when the barrier was not there. If we could find out when the barrier was not there, we might be able to narrow down the timeframe of this track.




This next track below is a continuation of the above track. The pins are where I was trying to work around the GPS problem. I put pins in my current location along the way. Where the red line is in between the green and red markers are where the GPS finally kicked in. That shows where we stopped and walked back to the apartment building. I emailed and talked to Karen along the way.

The next track is where we started again from the apartment building. This should be self explanatory with the markers.

The GPS was fixed by this track. This track, which was done on a Saturday with a lot of pedestrian traffic on the Embarcadero. There are very similar patterns to the first two tracks. There are tracks on Folsom and the Embarcadero and Market and streets like Bush and Geary that parallel Market. We are going to work on setting a trap on the grounds of the apartment building in the trash area.
