Hey buddy, can you spare a gpx track file?

Working on the Solitaires website for the upcoming trip south. Would like to integrate an embedded GoogleMap showing our current location and track. As all the additions to the boat are recent, I have no actual track files to play with... Can anyone spare an OpenCPN track exported as a .gpx file so I have some actual data to fool with?

Ideally, it would be several days worth, long interval (300 sec?), coastal passage. Location not really significant. 3 or 4 days on the ditch would be ideal.

As an aside, if anyone has pointers or suggestions on the whole
.gpx track file > convert to .kml > import to embedded GoogleMap thing, they would be appreciated. Have done my homework, but no need to reinvent the wheel if not necessary.

While this is not a specific OpenCPN question, I figure my chances of getting a relevant response are better here than elsewhere. If a mod feels this is more appropriate elsewhere, please move at your pleasure.

TIA

There's a rich track repository available at Track Library

Should be good to start with...

Good luck,
