A sizable change of plan for jogle

Having been off work with a virus for two days I've had no shortage of time to muck about with route planning!
At this rate i'll have my route planned a good year and a half ahead of need but this is just too much fun!
The original idea of a route slanting down to the Scottish west coast has been abandoned in favour of a central route, which while maintaining a mountainous landscape and multiple days away from civilization does make the path underfoot more certain! i still maintain that the Scottish right to roam does not guarantee an ability to roam! so i stick to marked paths and tracks or roads! ;).
The red flags on the map to the right are provisioning stops (thanks google maps!) and and the green tent marks are expected end of day markers working to an approximation of my average daily 17.5 miles walked per day.

Been there, now back again!

Jogle 2014

After my Le-jog of 2010 I can safely say that the lure of the return trip has never left me, I'm pretty sure anyone who has completed this epic walk knows where i'm coming from, so i'm committing myself to Jog-le in the late summer of 2014!.
Planning is naturally in the early stages so the final distance or any other stats are well away from publication!.
For now I'll make the basic kml (google maps) and the more accurate Gpx (memory maps etc) of the entire route available for download if anyone is interested :).Once the planned daily routes are completed I'll make those available too, comments from anyone with knowledge of the areas I'm going through would be more than welcome!.
