Thanks Heinz OE5EEP, Gerald F6HBI and Siji JG4LCS for sharing your tracks in the SMP this year - 32 more tracks uploaded so far in 2019, a great start! Let us hope others who use GPS join in. There should be as many takers as givers - we don not know who the track takers are but I imagine the MT do. I am certainly one of them if the information is available - for Scotland there is very little. Wales is excellent though - plenty of GPX track information which I have used, thanks to the contributions of MW0WML, G4TJC, GW4VPX and others.
As well as helping others in this way - sharing your routes and tracks in the SMP - the other positive thing to reflect on is this - what a marvellous legacy to leave behind - GPX tracks for others to use, when one has left this mortal coil and gone to the grave or the fire.
4 more Scottish tracks uploaded this afternoon, which were activated this week:
GM/SS-030 White Coomb
GM/SS-168 Law Kneis
GM/SS-074 Ettrick Pen
GM/SS-119 Ward Law
Appropriate comments written to assist - buyer beware! I’m not a mountain climber and no scrambling was necessary on all these tracks. The skill needed is determination and tenacity (in some cases) in negoiating burns, boggy land, tussocks and fallen forestry hihi…
Blog to be written up when I find time.
Happy New Year - may all who read this survive and continue to climb this year to their own personal SOTA Challenges!
