Comment on Coast to Coast day 7: Kirkby Stephen to Keld by James

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 08:06:26 +0000

Hi Tack. So glad to find this information. I've owned a GPS for all of 3 days, have taken 4 hours of triianng in that time and fiddled with it a fair amount. So I have a basic understanding, but I have some questions. I will be doing the C2C next month and plan to rely principally on the Harvey maps and the Stedman guide, but I would really like to use the GPS for back up and to get really adept at its use. I've downloaded the 511 waypoints into my unit from the Walking Places site. My question: does it make sense to try to follow the waypoints one after the other over the 14 days? Or should I break them down into more manageable routes (if so, how to select the right waypoints for each segment), or should I abandon all these waypoints and go with your tracks? Not sure how to use the tracks. Any guidance would be appreciated. I'm happy to email about this stuff directly with you if that would be easier. Thanks!

A lovely walk with a lot of different countryside to look at; the final section alongside the river can get muddy or even flooded though - so be careful when you choose to walk there.
