Thanks to all for your voice of support.
Many good points have been raised. The overwhelming majority are willing to purchase the route without activities, which surprises me. For those that would not purchase without supplied activities, that's understandable, in that case the Ozark Northern would be a "pass" for you.
The more I think about it, the more I am inclined to feel that I'm not comfortable with simply releasing the route sans activities, and that's it.
What I am considering, is making another pass or two over the route in order insure it's finalized, and then making a few activities to be released with it.
Once released, in the subsequent weeks/months/etc, I can perhaps develop and release activities in small batches until I'm satisfied with the quantity of activities, and hence feel that I am offering a product with good "play value". That is important to me.
Sooo... that's what I thinking.
In the meantime, below is a quick picture from within an activity that I just finished.
