What you need

  • A GPS: recommended, but not essential. We will lend you one. Please add your name and note below, so we can ensure we will have sufficient receivers.
  • You can use walking papers printouts if you don't have a GPS.
  • Laptop/PDA: again recommended, but not essential. There are some mapping and tracking programs out there which can be used for generating GPX files and displaying maps.
  • A camera: useful for mapping but also to have a nice souvenir

List of persons requesting receivers:

Joe Eckert -- just need to borrow a GPS, I have the rest (but no printer)


Version 1 Cake Diagram - the first cake diagram contained too many already mapped areas to be useful.

Version 2 Cake (with additional unmapped areas):


The area numbering is common to both maps. This schedule is just a proposal, feel free to modify or suggest changes.
