comment Get points from a kml LineString
Yes I can parse this with pure Python and regex, or shell and regex, etc. But there are several Python libraries that are built for KML, so I am trying to use them. It ought to be a fraction of LOC, especially if there are multiple named LineStrings in one KML.

comment Garmin etrex 10 and QGIS
My eTrex 10 mounts as USB disk. Can't you load the GPX files from the USB drive? Let the OS worry about USB protocol, not QGIS.

comment How to find and apply reprojection parameters?
Thanks. That appears to be the projection I found (see Edit). I am now working on converting that to the basemap projection (see 2nd edit)...

So the crs string from this code is '+k=1 +lat_0=90 +lon_0 +no_defs +x_0 +y_0' which is quite different than the proj4 string I found using the osr and that function provided here gis.stackexchange.com/questions/7608/…

Setting -s_srs 'EPSG:3031' solved it. Thank you. Any advice how I would have found 3031 from the missing 9001? I don't see a connection.

The image (and TFW file) is here: dl.getdropbox.com/u/12453163/peninsula.zip. The suggestion to use EPS:3031 by @JayLaura worked! Thank you!
