Give this a try. Aerial picture of the walk we did

Hello. I'm trying something, don't know if it will work. Paul has sent me a link to the satellite tracking he used on the walk, he has a hand held device. I have watched it on my computer, you might be able to see the same. It runs quite slow but you can speed it up, there is a button on the bottom right hand side of the side bar >> it starts at 3, I put it up to 12 and it makes us run, very funny. You can see where we had a break, and the stopping at junctions to get our bearings checking which way to go next. Total time was 5 hours 42 minutes. We got up to 4mph on occasions, highest ascent was almost 1,000 feet. Hope it works for you.

  1. Cool! I didn't know there was such a thing. I zoomed out a bit, and it looks like a patchwork quilt.

  2. That's interesting...my husband has a hand held GPS. Wonder if it will work for us?

  3. It certainly does. Very interesting. We use GPS sometimes with my husbands hobby of amateur radio so other people can see where we are if we go out in the car and we use a programme called APRS but I think I like this one much better . will show hubby when he wakes up :)
