Social media trails from day 2:
The second day of walking brought together more walkers using social media linked up to Richard's feed. Viewranger shows some of this on the basis of images harvested and posted to Flickr. Some of the Flickr posts are images shared which were subsequently posted to the Flickr group by Richard, they retained their gps tag and are thus located here:
using Social Hiking other users were linked directly to a single trail, this enabled tweets and retweets to be linked up thus beginning to capture live some fragments of thoughts and conversation. Posts cluster around the walk interventions:

April 14-15 2015: A 2 day walk as close as possible to that line. Where the walk intersects the line, interventions. An intimate performative walk-in-witness exploring resonances from the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Belsen.
July 13-19 An exhibition of documentation of documentation and new work at 44AD Gallery, Bath BA1 1NN
February 2016: A performative walk-in-witness on the original death march route from slave labour camp to Belsen. 71 years later. Interventions. Resonances.
The first phase is done and we gather our thoughts:
