Updated the AMA boundaries after a nudge by Surfer Joe to download the most recently updated version available on the DNR Data Deli.

The newest version of shp2kml (available here) allows you to add a centroid marker to the middle of the boundary automatically allowing me to skip a step in the process. Woot!

Most of these KMZ files are evidently being stored on some server space that Silent Bob is paying for - is that true? I don't know what kind of arrangement we have, but doesn't the MnGCA pay for server space somewhere that could hold downloadable files like this? It is gracious of Silent Bob to provide this service for us up to this point.

I explored this option tonight but I don't believe it will work out for us.

For the record, Silent Bob has been hosting these files at my request, not at that of the MNGCA.

Surfer Joe asked me to provide the boundaries for the Superior National Forest so I have added them here as well. If you need the Chippewa for some reason, I have that data as well.
Chippewa NF would be great ... Any chance of including the various Mn WMAs?

The Chippewa National Forest doesn't restrict geocaching so there is no need. The WMA file is already there.

I've updated most of the DNR files. They can now be found in the MnDNR cache guidelines (here).
