Hello there, next year i am planning to hike the INT and wondered if there were any one else out there thinking the same. I would love to share concerns and ideas about the trail with fellow hikers.

Regards, Kevin Pearson, UK

Hi Kevin

Nice to have you as a visitor to our site and a visitor in our country for the future.

There are always hikers on the INT, never a dull moment.

Best time is Spring and Autumn, is planning various water main in the desert region but we'll help you plan it, the rest is a piece of cake, well, almost.

Do you need any of advise on or getting as fit to hike?

Thanks for the welcome Zammy.
I hiked the Appalachian Trail last year and thats where i found out about the int.
At the moment I am debating whether to buy now or wait i went maps arrive in israel. I have found some maps online that cover the trail in 1:50, 000 but they will cost me around $ 300.
Would i be able to get hold of the trail maps easily once im in israel?
My other various is of course the desert. This is a completely new environment to me and i welcome any advice!
I am planning to begin in March.
I hope i am using this interface correctly as i cant read English!

Hi kevin

You are doing fine.

What's your trail name?

The maps are in English and I strongly of advise you to buy them here or wait for "well.instructions" on how to get parts relevant to the INT scanned.

The desert, you will need to carry, at times, between 6-9 litres for

Two to three days. I of advise you to stay in contact with us and we'll help you find partners to walk, of course, Israelis and they will have other meaning of water reserves, like hiding it beforehand in the desert, I am sure they will be happy to have you as a partner for the int.

Are you in good shape? This is not the Wye valley you know.

You'll need strong shoes as the tougher trail is rocky.

Temperatures and rain are nothing like the United Kingdom.

March is spring time.

Maybe you won ' t even need Goretex shoes.

My trail name was and i hiked dandylion Georgia to Maine in 2005.

I only turned 20 this year, so i like to think i have natural fittness, but i am starting to get back into top shape in myself "preparation tool. ,

Hey sureal! Drop me an email if you would like and we can talk some more, i put it at the bottom of my last post i believe.

I am seriously the concept of progressively closer hiking in a desert. I have rarely carried more than a litre of water on my hikes "across England, Scotland, Wales and the U.S. and thus i very much appreciate all the help everyone has sent my way already.

Cheers!

P.s. If anyone would like to talk about the a. t. or hiking in the UK, i would be happy to answer any questions.

Kevin

Hi Kevin

The Wye valley, have you done it? Or any other long distance trails more interesting?

North of England. The first section through the lake district is wonderful, its a glaciated landscape and of course is very green with stone dividing up the walls.40 are dry idylic the pasture performed an land. One reservation i have about that trail now is that it has become a tourist trail now, theres a few companies that will carry your bags from town to town for you.

For a real challenge, North Scotland is incredibly wild both in terrain and weather and there are lots of peaks over 3000ft.

I've never hiked in the Wye Valley but further west of there in Wales there are some great places to trek such as the breacon beacons. I am going up to Twice in 2 weeks to hike for a few days just to stretch my of legs, I happen to live in the flattest county in the UK by circumsances cruel. If anyone wants some more info feel free to email me.

Kevin,

Hey, zammy

I was talking to my friend Andy the other day, i met him on the Appalachian trail last year and he was the one who planted the idea of hiking the INT in my head. He happened to mention that you gave him lots of information and advice before he went.  I just thought it was funny how many other things come about.

As for my progress, many other things are coming along well. A few details about the negrev section need attention but that will happen much nearer the time.

P.s. in that last post i somehow missed out some text, i was trying to say that the English coast to coast walk is the best to do here.

Cheers, kevin
