Route planning

When I started route planning I somehow had to set up stages to get an idea how long it would take me. Partly, I simply stuck to stages given in guidebooks and sometimes I simply cut the track to get a leg of a certain length – plus/minus the distance to a settlement. As I intend to camp most of the nights I’m not really bound to towns and I might pass the one or the other without even bothering to enter.

So please be aware that this is not a fixed schedule from which you might calculate when I intend to pass a certain place! This will only serve as a very rough overview for myself to see if I’m more or less on time regarding my overall planning as I’m also looking forward to include rest days for sightseeing, Munro bagging or what else might cross my mind. And I assume that there will be shorter days (for whatever reason, it might be the weather, it might be for health reasons, it might be just not being in the mood to walk one day) as well as longer days (because everything’s just perfect). If you’d like to catch up with me on the trail please feel free to contact me via this site a couple of days in advance so that we can arrange something. I’d be delighted to meet fellow hikers, backpackers, LEJOGers, …!
