Live mapping for my TGO Challenge progress

I leave home tomorrow to take the train up to Mallaig for the TGO Challenge.  I will be updating my blog, with photos and comments, hopefully daily (but it depends on phone signal).  I will also be using the ViewRanger software on my mobile phone to provide updates on my position.  This blog should automatically display a map with my planned route on every morning, together with a link that will open an OS map in a new window that should display my recent positions together with my planned route.  Thank you to Jim for kindly hosting my files and also thanks to those who had made some helpful postings on the OS OpenSpace forum.

Here is an example from my walk in the Lake District last weekend:
