First Pilgrim Trail Board of 2015

20140919_185059

 

With the two Camino Salvado Pilgrimages by St Josephs in Subiaco already full, more Colleges becoming interested in walking the trail and individual walkers wanting to “do their own thing” MMXV looks like becoming a seminal year in the development of the Pilgrim Trail. We also discussed creating a Sister-link with the Camino De Santiago and have initiated discussion with the regional Government in Galicia to get the ball rolling. We are also planing to extend Membership of the Pilgrim Trail to the wider community and are working on “Member Benefits” to go with it. But the big news out of the Board Meeting is that we will officially launch the Trail at Easter 2016 with a special walking group that will include some of the original walkers from 2009. If you’re interested in being part of this Historic event, please contact us early as interest will be huge!

The mapping starts

Today I started the process of mapping the official pilgrim trail so we can create a Everytrail Guide. For the untechnical, Everytrail is a phone app that maps the route you walk step by step. We can add photos and points of interest along the way. We can upload that and add audio commentary and lots of extra detail. The public can then download the map and guide information. It’s a great app.

We started at st Joseph’s on Salvado Road in Subiaco, the pilgrim trailhead and headed east. Mapping and taking photos takes a bit longer that we thought, but we got to Claisebrook by lunchtime. The biggest issue is not our leg stamina but the phones battery stamina. Mapping with GPS connection drains the battery fast, two phones lasted nine kms.

 

This first part was a great mix of urban and nature, old and modern, plus lots of coffee opportunities along the way. Particularly like this quote on the Bali memorial in King’s Park.
