You'll have plenty. Thousands and thousands. What I do suggest though is ending the line periodically and using the extend function so that if something happens while drawing you don't lose all the work you've done.

thanks for the quick reply.
Thousands of poly points, that's good to hear.
I am ignorant as to the use of layers
so haven't examined the BLM
Where I live, New Mexico, there is
much intermixed property: BLM,
National Forest, Pueblo, private,
land grant, military, State, wilderness,
etc. So much of it is completely empty that I just go anywhere that
interests me. Sometimes I've had
encounters with land owners who
take exception to my being where I'm
discovered and sometimes they don't mind. Still it's good to know whose
place I'm trespassing. Normally I
carry USGS topos, the 1:24000 maps
but I have some going back to the
1950s. The land may not have changed much but the ownership has.
I belong to the New Mexico Mountain Club, hikers and climbers. Many of the
leaders are using CalTopo and
Gaia as their go-to map resources.
People no longer using those big
USGS sheets just the print-on-demand customized things.
