A little while ago I showed our planned route for the second day of our 2010 TGO Challenge walk. Now, there are members of our congregation who are not particularly beardy walkery types and so, just for them, (ahem!) the above image helps to visualise the day's walk. You can see our start point (if you squint carefully) at the top left - Oban bothy - and our finishing point down in Glen Pean. You probably will need to click on the image to see this! Oh - but it is worth it! Go on - Click on it!
Digital mapping can be a powerful tool. It does ram home what you are about to take on. With those great big rucksacks full of food and tents and stoves and pots and pans and sleeping bags etc etc...Ooh dear!
