I will be crossing some amazing wild and open countryside, including the Monadhliath and Cairngorm mountain ranges, and you can see some details of my ‘intended’ route here.
On my walk I will be carrying a SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger which will transmit my current location to a satellite, every 10 minutes, and my progress will be recorded. You can track my progress on one of the following maps: (the map on 1 an 2 below will show properly once tracking starts and the last map, 3, will be set up shortly)
- My personal map on the Social Hiking website. This map will also show the occasional tweet and possibly a podcast or two, mobile signal permitting that is! Also, if I manage to set it up in time, this map will also show my intended route in a different colour.
- A group map on the Social Hiking website, showing me and other walkers on the TGO Challenge.
- Another group map showing me and yet more walkers on the TGO Challenge.
I do not intend to blog as I go so this may be my last post until near the end of May. My online activity will likely be only on twitter, @bryanwaddington, if you would like to keep in touch. You can also email me via the Contact page if you don’t have my email address.
Keep your fingers crossed, for all the ‘Challengers’, so we have good weather, a safe crossing and no midges! (well, not many :)
