Hello

My wife and I intend to follow the GR11 from Irun to Cap de Creus in the Mediterranean Sea.

About: we wanted to go the long route, from the beginning to the end, without stop. My wife vetoed that Bill and Israel. We start with such long trails, so we wanted a relatively simple route, especially in terms of navigation. In addition, about disposal is monthly.
Nkrata us an opportunity that may not come back any time soon, and annach and intend to exploit it:)

My wife and I speak Spanish. Read here on the forum about the GR11 and it seemed a great track for us.

Flights in mid-July and early September. In total approximately 60 days, about 4 days to go "on the road. We go and return from Barcelona.

Some details about the preparations:

Experience: we travel a lot in the country. Most single trips, but made up to 4 day tours including full weight on my back. I did separate trips, but it's been a few years since.

We have the book of Cicero on the GR11. We also have 46 PRAMES maps and their number (in Spanish). If topographic maps of 40,000:1. For those interested, there are small differences between the routes of several of Cicero and the Spanish School.

My wife started to train for the trip. Mostly walks. I unfortunately had to work.

Equipment:
Sleeping bags: Marmot Trestles 15.
Tent: Casa II of sabari. Bought shortly before we decided to explore. The holding in drizzle.
Bags: I have old crimor who accompanied me. My wife bought OSPREY's ARIEL and she wanted him.

Decisions:

I have doubts) take cooking equipment, or give up and eat cold. According to the manual, there are no more than 5 days without a purchase. We usually Cook the blowtorch. Bothers me will places to buy gas in the middle of the track.

2) clothing and rain gear: raincoats and bought new wind top only. We have travel pants dry rapidly. I wonder how hot equipment. I saw that the average temperature is approximately 35 degrees, but some seem a bit lower mountains, and it's just average. Whether a slicker + thermal shirt + standard shirt will suffice?

Concerns:

1 I'm pretty afraid of aniotim). My wife and I know how to read maps, but most travellers on well-marked trails, therefore our knowledge "inexperienced". I'm not really afraid to get lost, but more time to lose. Can anyone tell me whether the route is well marked, and though the Guide and map complicated points have?

2) the weather we are going ךטייל, yet pachsh from a weather off us off too much, or iamell us.

3) warts and blisters!. Is there any preventive actions should be taken? That drain and leikoplast I know.

I'd appreciate comments and so on. I read the forums and never learned. The Forum is part of what led me to actually GR11.
Many times I find it hard to throw the experience-everyone here looks like a Pro:)

-Advise you to bring a detailed equipment list with weights.

Tent-this spring, consider buying lightweight tent online.

-Clothing-duty above and insert. Sometimes it rains, hail and cold or a cold and frozen remains

Navigation-for it is indeed a problem. Not check a compass.

Weather-ready to heat, rain, hail, snow. Clothing suitable for each situation.

-Gas burner cooking, don't eat in such cold food long trip no problem to find a tbergim gas tanks.

You must practice training, rope off the trail because of blisters or sinew stretched and inflamed. For that, as you say, a lifetime, making preparations to leave at end. Like going to Marathon without training here too.

Blisters-practice first with your walking shoes go with sock liner sock. Large size shoe. Pamper your feet with cream. Please note that all burning and stopped and checked. Take care: gses equipment, syringe needles, hold serious plaster, ointment, band-AIDS, cotton of COMPEED

Check if you can make the path while you aktsbtam must take into account total rest day every 6-7 days. Mandatory.

You need to know to navigate in GR11 because he doesn't check the good ones in Europe (an understatement)
If you want to invest in a navigation device Garmin can save a lot of headaches.
About cooking, I wasn't taking the blowtorch but relies on cold and hot meals once the cabins and villages

I think cooking cooking/coffee פק"ל is mandatory. I personally am not overly enthusiastic about the food at rafiog so that this cookbook is significantly cheaper and tasty option.
Beyond the economic issue, stopping whenever and tea/coffee making facilities. At worst, send him home in one of the towns.
I've traveled in gas (12 days) and in every town I've bumped into gas tanks.

Weather-we were in August 2012. This heat is also experienced in June (and I live in the South).
There have been several days in afternoon (3-4) the temperature stayed above 30 degrees. I think a list of clothing-maybe I was thinking of icroplis.

BTW, why the GR10 another shortcut? What I got to experience the French side:
-Quality check
-Nicer weather and green landscape (the Spanish side in relation to French)
-Procurement.

The conclusion that we reached is that if I go to long track in so it is better to go in preseason in terms of landscape and weather.

They do not nullify the GR10. They preferred the GR11 for two reasons. 1. they speak Spanish 2. Is cheaper

The days we had the Spanish side were warm.
I think it's quite a whippin's discretion to spend all summer.

Why stab? To each his own. Anyone who chooses the path that suits him all the reasons that characterize him. Not everyone has to walk the trail-paths Israel then others.
Me less attractive Israel trail. Don't feel the need to apologize or explain (and it might even change one day).
So whether it's "my wife put her name and motto" or (like me) chooses to go for. Why is it "poke"? Io_travel 41394.3646759259

Israel considered the path isn't easy especially in the South, there are no water too summer fighter

Because it is July and August, seems right for the average traveler to veto Israel trail.

Israel

If it's the time of year so I agree and support.

I have also a problem with people who prefer Alpine treks on Israel.

What bothered me is the word "veto" which implied her absolute disqualification.

Anyway it doesn't matter. Indeed, man (and woman) straight in the eye does

OK., but it cost equipment Forum here in response to questions, the most excellent tzbris's tent weighs 2.1 easy compared to other good tents.
To open the key cover his rain gear side for sewing and seal the seams with Silicon diluted.
There are some discussions on the Forum.
The bag too heavy and old-fashioned crimor weighs 3 pounds.
Buy modern lightweight backpack if better back while you are used to,
But substitute time especially for long, it is pretty outdated 80s sold in time because it was either that or LOW.
Save some kilograms even more if you buy a lightweight backpack
Weighing 1.4 as GRANIT GEAR strong lightweight and comfortable back system and much more akrimor.
And be comfortable and easier.
And a rain jacket.
Hot Spanish side that may be too hot.
Maybe summer ש"קש + liner but can be cold nights for mid-August,
So take that's your + liner at SEA TO hot-liner thing SAMMIT if tooth without a sack.
Better ש"קש opened the blanket or quilt like that has vents even when it's hot.
Take Lightweight fleece jacket in late August and September have take thermal suit clothing just in case.
Cooking equipment-cutting balloons across Europe but got better
Buy filter adapter for KOVEA case or anything of that great weight 80 stores adapter.
It is advisable to take even small weight oalia and always buy alcohol 95% או96% liquor store or count that's how you covered all the energy.

Thank you everyone for your responses.

I see ש"ווטו on Israel" evoked responses (not my intention)-stemmed would veto we travel quite a bit and can do it on weekends. A trip abroad only with taking a vacation, so if you do it my wife prefers to do abroad.
We travel quite a bit on Israel.


Tent: I don't want to spend too much money. Already gone with the animal tent and was fine. Course-4 days:) and 46

Navigation: this path is indeed problematic? Reading on the Internet I got the impression that he is not complicated. What you say is worth to invest in GPS. Compass has. (Just plastic).

Clothing: in this forum I read that one traveler (providing) carried more than anyone because he got too hot equipment. I hope to learn from mistakes. I have never traveled in Europe, so I'm not sure. Maybe it's worth bringing rain pants. Snow is not supposed to be in July.

Weather: I know summer 2012 was unusually hot in the Pyrenees, about 5 degrees above average. I don't know what will happen this summer. I know it's raining every once in a while, especially after lunch, and summer storms. I don't know how cold it is.
According to accuweather average temperature ranges from 11 to 25-27 degrees.

Food: my recommendation is contradictory. If so, get gas, gas burner and cooking equipment.

GR11/GR10-speak Spanish so that listwith and coughs. The comparison is not made.

Frequently asked questions:

What is foot creams? Sock liner-professional We have hiking socks (wigwam).

I do hope that we can do. Unfortunately we're in time for work. But hey, 60 day.

NIR,
Ma suggested here (regarding the warts) on large size shoe.
I had iiblot in my first (I have even of Princess on Saturday and now some underground boat all warts on your hands )-who I went shoe was used in previous short routes and had very comfortable so it is disappointing and surprising. When I bought a new shoe, sounded to Ma's advice. It seems so weird store take shoe that so fits () vs. shoe that fits. But on the ground it worked! Hardly had the last trekking warts (and thank you for this opportunity available!). 41394.4722569444 io_travel

You'd better lock in case 1 and 1:30 large even if
That would be two pairs one sock liner and one in rigadiil
Lined,
When you need a larger shoe to the foot + socks.
It is recommended to take foot cream and soothe anti-cracks foot + pleasant smell
After the walk. And keep feet dry, always
We should take against water and giiters or leggings scratches, bites, bites
Or toe shoes and Crocs to camp or crossing water. 41394.4862731481 easyman

In nzinia rather than the blowtorch light weight less tinkering and no smell
No problem of gas there, you can take a backup oalia.
The litre locker didn't take enough of a gallon has very hot days
And need water but can be full-liter Not always.
Tent in Europe cost more map have excellent tzbris tent with 600 weight or tents FERRINO
Italy made cheaper than Europe has LIGHT 2FERRINO tent TENT weighs 1.7 in Italy costs 200 euros in the land of 700.
Altitude sickness is starting to get dangerous from 3000 m and 2800 m 500 m climb slowly and as easy to adapt every 1000 feet.
Light balls on the symptoms don't cure the disease, the only remedy is to lose altitude fast, you may have the symptoms already 2000 meters it solo! You should consult if you doctor.
To take ש"קש lightweight comfort that 0 degrees is better makes the blanket or quilt, be cool and even cold nights also
Leiner to sack if hot tooth-liner thing.
A THERM A REST area preferably PROLIGHT + or NEO lightweight and comfortable
Small folding.
4 x 4 Jeep if air + hotel bookings 5 stars + classically-decorated breakfast + lunch at the restaurant considered + coffee and cake in the Caf? +
Need to stop shopping there and a Hairstylist and most importantly to be iPhone 5 reception everywhere (ten minutes without iPhone went and begins whining). If you want a woman who will travel with you and walk with you the only paths that go with it are for the dining room
The pool at the hotel 5 stars (4 stars be bitching) or shopping from home for coffee. Maybe in Europe you might find less spoiled here, but where are the girls. (Of course leave, possibly, but from year to year, and spoiled the batty men). 41395.4743287037 easyman
