Live tracking from Oslo to Bergen by foot - ready for takeoff!

Update August 2: I had to cancel the trip on day 3 due to serious illness in close family.

Follow the trip on: 
Tomorrow, Thursday 31 July, I'm starting on my four weeks hike from Oslo to Bergen. It's been a very nice and warm summer in Norway, so it's been hard to work on my real-time trekking map. But if everything works, you should be able to follow me on this map

I'll blog about the technicalities after the trip. The expedition code is available on GitHub under a GPL licence if you want to dig in: https://github.com/turban/oslobergen

A few notes: 
Hope it's working! :-)

Really nice and very impressive, Bjørn! Have you considered to include some items from the Norvegiana pool of cultural heritage objects (http://norvegianablog.wordpress.com/), similar to your Instagram plans?

Yes, it was the plan, but unfortunately I ran out of time. I'm looking forward to use the Norvegiana API for later trips!
