23rd/24th May 2009. (Saturday & Sunday).

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.
  • 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

That is essentially the entire urban area in one day! Sunday, people can do any loose ends they are personally aware of and do some nearby villages or countryside. Please let me (Tim) know what you plan to do, to avoid duplication.
