A few days ago we returned from the trip and got a lot of information from the site I thought it but to share experiences and conclusions with you here on the site, maybe this will help someone in the future.

The objective was to make the walk of net week enabling and cooking in the field as a replacement for the btlano ctskar after the flotilla RAID. Once I realized where the wind blows in Turkey, immediately began searching for a replacement immediately closed the prinias.

Selected axis is based on the GR11 except the last two days.

The below path:
Sunday: starts later after reaching Torla in the afternoon on a bus and walking to the goris-rafiog.
Monday: goris camping Pinta?.
Tuesday: Pinta to fersen-bedroom accommodations.
Wednesday: fersen to bedroom biados tent in kampimag before rafiog.
Thursday: biados to bedroom y rafiog.
Friday: the GR11 route y 2 aim rafiog ' Engle-engaged in a tent adjacent to the unmanned rafiog (ardenta)
7th day: walk to end point in a town called Arista (South of bnassak)

Logistics:
Round trip flight from Barcelona. To use max time to trek and we bus hire car directly in the field to reduce the length of your back.
Took hotel rooms in Nice town called sbinino where we left the car for the week.
Organized and took a bus to the town of Torla took less than an hour to start. Returns a little more disturbing, bnassak bus to the provincial capital, Osaka and rapid exchange after coffee sbinino.
Back to Barcelona.

By the way, the difference in price per bus, compared to a rental car for four people is negligible compared to the comfort even if you sell the car for the length of your trip.

Equipment:
Anyone with a backpack between 65 + litres 80 litres.
Each pair is in a tent, cooking equipment and nzinia.
All with and a mattress.
Each with walking sticks.
Clothing including warm clothing and rain.
Food.

Water and food:
A word about water, everyone had two bottles of 1ליטר. At the end of the day, I used only one when I make sure to fill in any reliable source. Hardly stuck without water only in isolated cases went after I ran out of water and is a short distance. The water along the way, clean and delicious. Not pilterno not haitino, just drank directly from anhalim. Of course you need to run a judgment regarding the water source and the possibility that there are bad.

Food brought from Israel for several reasons. Not kosher! It was important for me to start as soon as possible and spend time in the morning after a late arrival. Again the concept based on simple things, so it won't really matter. Below is a sample daily menu:
Wake up-coffee or tea with a slice and paste (Halva, jam or dates)
Breakfast oatmeal with honey.
Lunch of bread and cheese or sausage, sometimes if you fancy pasta.
Soup night with flakes and jerky
* Snacks along the way especially Mosley.

The port in Torla bought loaf, cheeses and salami. The fersen bought more bread.

Changed:
Sleeping in the tent was a problem and I've never heard of a problem from people we met along the way.
In general there is mainly arranged so that locations other than one night they slept in anywhere, everything was kind of neat. Want to say, toilets and trash cans.
The rafiog ' experience is, I like it less but to combine it is definitely worthwhile. It's more convenient but it's not, no shoes, leave bags outside, sleeping with other people in the room to go to the bathroom at night is movie etc.

Some of the walk:
The track, there are no words to describe the happiness of seeing wild green snow sunny landscapes and waterfalls. Week of magical landscapes is highly recommended!

But he is far from easy, has become very difficult. For the traveler who chooses to take everything about your trip is more than a day trip ... Daily height differences are homicidal. Every day around the 1 most, and at the end of each day, even down to the same height. Need to be careful at the end of the day, injuries as a result of exhaustion and fatigue and less power in the legs.

There are many people who don't make the daily "section of the book due to exhaustion. Many say it doesn't make sense and find themselves in a late throw.
We finish our customer's daily section but it is not easy especially on days like today or Wednesday.

Navigate:
I took a map and 50k sand purchased the book. The actual route is well marked and with daily map attached. I opened it several times a day only. In hindsight it would be better just to shoot the relevant days and take the book itself.
There are less obvious especially parts parts stones and rocks, but it's not something unreasonable or was going to get lost in. Total load in twice and had to go back but it was more a lack of attention and that not more than a few hundred metres.

Shops:
There are not many micro-points along the route.
There are shops in Torla includes stores under the equipment of good quality is not checked. It seems to me that you can buy, but haven't checked 99.9%.
We fuel gas station we time.
Need to consider food a few days with purchase of fersen near the gas station.

General conclusions:
-As you can be, I always tell myself yet. Every ounce per gram at the end.
-Walking sticks is a must, but it's not standard country abroad doesn't see hikers. Incidentally, it is clear that I'm talking about. We've seen our quality differences between "good" Blackie and the canes ' operation in the country that just doesn't stand.
-Airtight and good walking shoes husband and sole on this stance, I wore old Oslo 520 and I was just amazing and uncompromising friend just shoes.
-To take into account the rain cover and jackets. We walked for about five hours on the third day of rain and hail and sponges. Most cases were not dry clothes After a few hours my coat also passed and I had just not cold.
We had enough in one nseniia just take two, the goal was in case something happens. But it didn't happen. And also not used pot. We just removed my MSR was enough for four.
The route partly could be dangerous at the beginning of the season, we went out in the second week of July, all still full of snow. In retrospect, we chose to perform on the second day the old section of the GR what turned out to be a mistake. We passed it in the end but without it just isn't appropriate. -Always ask for rafiog.

If there's more fun questions.

By the way, not seen in the rest of the trip. Except for one ...

No problem if you want to photograph.
Contact 0546554332 coordination.

About SEP (or the beginning?), I don't think I caught, but surely more changeable weather. Should take into account colder at night and watch the rain. Need to check rpiogis's regulations if you are planning, after the official season.
There may be other relevant experience.

No problem with SEP (even those who prefer the summer because there's less traffic on the road), but we should always remember that mountain weather can change quickly and radically to a Blizzard--and that is true. You need to be ready for everything.

We did exactly the same route (only) in late September and October were even a few days. Besides a Blizzard (of approx.) mild hypothermia and had no problems.

Most rafiog were open if not everyone.
