I start my Great Divide Trail 2018 Canada hike in a couple of weeks

I leave in a couple of weeks to hike the Great Divide Trail in Canada. I’m not sure how it will pan out as I’ve never done such a thing like it before. Terrified doesn’t really begin to explain it, haha.

Once I start hiking, I probably won’t be posting on my site much, if at all, for a while. I’ll post on instagram and write a little comment with each photograph or something :). As far as I know, there’s less WiFi/internet spots compared to the Pacific Crest Trail or the Appalachian trail, so I don’t know how often I’ll get to post.

If I don’t reply on instagram within a month, Sasquatch found me (I put up a good fight, I promise).

Great map news

For months now I’ve been trying to figure out how to display a map with tracklogs but do it in a way that’s highly informative.

I created a map page and tried a few different methods but I was never really satisfied… Well I think I have found a way to make it a speedy (ish) process. Rather than worry about displaying information perfectly on the map when you click a track log, I will instead focus on adding links to the track. Simply put, you’ll click a track and the name will be a link to the Garmin Connect website where there’s lots more information.

It’s not done yet but I am pleased I have figured it out in a usable way. Unfortunately I don’t think I’ll be able to do this with my smartphone. As such, I’ll have to upload all of my Canadian hikes when I return home.

Knife modification and website category stuff

I’ve started modifying a knife, take a look. I’ve made a few things recently… A backpack modification, a knife modification, and an inflator for my thermarest neoair xlite pad.

This page should probably go in the review section of my site but equally I want camping/travel related stuff to be easy to find. I really need to sort this mess out better at some point, haha.
