Both communities unable to camp two from ש"גנבו met company" is on one of the lawns in bsteia, I personally don't favor one, but all his decisions.

Hitching I have something, probably seems a bit remote CONCA rides the bus took 2 1/2 hours.
From CALVI has so much that you need to get to the trailhead, so it's a matter of luck a lot, I saw quite a few to save all the foot about 12 km, some, like the solution to share a taxi with others what I couldn't do-or bus once a day only I think 15:00

Corsica GR20 summary June 2011
Aryeh Ben Porat

WORD file attachment of your summary

I walked the entire route from North to South in 14 days (13-29) I went alone, but of course the met a few other discourage most French and most of them don't speak English, kinda surprised me the other minority can look at this course.
I write here below from my point of view "ה"צרה tips and recommendations but doesn't want someone to take a precise said at the end of the day the information is subjective and a decision should be at your own risk.
French also links to important sites.
Site with lots of information about the route:
Http://corsica.forhikers.com/gr20

When to go
I am indeed biased but still think lucky me I chose the timing, earlier there was a chance for rain and cold, very hot July August September may winter buds and everything is dry it is rpiogy supply problem.
The weather was really just the last two days were a little too hot to fall at its height, more than a few streams of water (not necessarily drinking water) some leftover snow also walked him.
The nights were cool but not too many, only when winds was a bit unpleasant.
By rpiogy members ' this part of June has become the busiest of the season, at least the demonstrations makes the track fun.

North South? South North?
I would recommend only one reason Southwest-most do then your bill generated social really nice with time created in my case a group of more than 10 company were sitting all day together in the rpiogy drink beer snacks and dandruff.
All of the following are reasons for South main walking easier so you can build muscles to the North, reaching the first-longest return to Earth two days later that I detail, and most importantly the North more significant so that enjoyment level kept rising. I personally have experienced quite disappointing in the early days the southern part.

How to get there?
Flight to Nice France and name:
For beginners in the bus stop located across the city by Wednesday and then travel to Calvi there once a day away, there's only one bus a day three klanzana ago (Calanzana) or share taxi that Harrow 12 km כ35 expensive to fly, from a pine forest only have Airport taxis are the same price or less kalanzana.
Buses information site:
Http://www.corsicabus.org/busCalvi/CLY_Calenzana.html
For beginners in the bus stop located across the city by Wednesday and then travel to Bastia (bsteia (once a day or have a flight and then a taxi from the airport to town around 12 km away, from where a bus to Puerto and Akio (Porto Vecchio), twice a day, morning and afternoon, but to have (Santa Lucia) near bar-Bar U Colombu but advance with Gite in konka (Conca), or walk 5 km.
Gite website:
Http://membres.multimania.fr/gitedetapeconca/
I took a flight going from Nice that was landing after the shuttle's departure and decided to pay a little more but save day + accommodation costs in Nice, from the taxi with departmental kalui two Americans.
In the back of transport Jite konka bus
Buses information site:
Http://www.corsicabus.org/busPVecchio/PVE_Bastia.html
The bsteia ferry to Nice but again she comes only in the morning which got me in bsteia-camping in town took a cheap Ditto.
Country site:
Http://www.corsica-ferries.co.uk/Pcorsica.srv;
Note about public transportation when she runs is very efficient and accurate but should be prepared for surprises, all the time my stay was the train strike, which is very difficult for those of us on this.


Before
Opinion. almost everything a person could carry a heavy bag on his back and the physical effort involved in orbit can do it, of course it's not Potter making a good preparation before including in mountain regional with full weight, I say that because I met a variety of people who are very experienced with the equipment to olterliit lovely girl in 4th month pregnant with 12 kg on his back. So it was mostly a desire and an understanding of the expected difficulties and importantly proper preparation.
Weight of opinion-the target should be not more than 10 kg of equipment (not including food and water – detail below)
Of course you can go with, I met quite a few banks with around 20 kg bags with water and food for several days and still survived, but in my opinion at least benefited.
-Mainly getting there and back to the start and end point all the rest flows from and can make decisions while walking because breakpoints defined luxury, the French have total information fairly, the trail is marked fine so that all room for error in walking and GPS.

The track
First of all is very beautiful and worth the effort, diverse landscapes and variables from the northern part of the beautiful and challenging than adromi, the first two days in the South but the rest disappointed me was very nice.
The book divides the track 15 days some longer and some shorter can be done what society at the track called "meaning to go alone two pieces in one day, I personally don't favor unless there's time constraints. I originally planned 12 days ' walk which means 3 of dried figs to make but very quickly realized it (again, at least for me) early arrival to the rafiog give targot comfortable time establishing laundry tent frozen shower but at least without as problem then sit with others and enjoy a nice chat and a shame to say little.
I thought I'd take a day of rest in oizovena, there is absolutely nothing to do so I continued to go to sleep in konka JITE then travel the next day to most bsteia also got to go to the final day (5 hours) and enough to eat and take a shower and take the bus shuttle of 1 to bsteia.
For those who want to make of dried figs have two I can recommend:
According to French school sections 7 + 8 (rafiog ' rpiogy ' Manganu to Londa) and get into the oreint and 8 more beautiful, sections 10 + 11 (izovena to the rpiogy and Prati) immediately after izovena.

Recommendation on the penultimate day as you exit the mandatory Asinau rpiogy take the oreint of Bavella, I didn't do it and regret the usual boring and long.

Costs
Total all the pleasure had approximately 1300 Harrow has everything possible to do more and less, much less hard for me to say I'll give here a certain details and some prices of groceries and one iishfot to the best of his ability.
I only slept in a tent at the track and the costs are divided as follows:
-Track 500 + dining nights Maru most self-employed (6 arrow in a tent, coke חם3 3.5 5 6 beer cheese pasta sauce 10, 2.5 to 3.5 pasta etc. ..)
– Israel – nice – 550 kalui, Harrow
A taxi to klanzana 36-arrow
Back to bsteia 25 konka Harrow
A ferry nice-35 off Harrow
Overnight in Bastia and night in Nice hotels 90 arrow
20. Harrow.

Unable to get cash from ATMs throughout the track features not in the towns and the end-value based and harmless to take at least 200 arrow reserve, credit usage isn't possible either.

School/maps
As I mentioned the French school (A travers la montagne corse (due to map 1:25.000, but also pretty good books in English and used on a few in the North is very conservative so that you can perform with less interruptions, including has, somehow, a relatively closer over time.
20.7 booking site Harrow includes shipping
Http://www.ffrandonnee.fr/boutique/topo-guide.aspx? ref = 067

B
In the rpiogy order in advance cost 11 Harrow, in most cases they were full when it happens they also have their tents that are already established in the area with mattresses in the same price-all too few days tents were occupied so don't take any chances and ordered.
I personally recommend you send then you tent is completely flexible and doesn't require any pay instead of twin 6 arrow, but there is competition for good perception so that first win, and of course places that you must sleep away from the main building and the showers, sandals.
Spoiled us has several options to enjoy a stay in the hotels location:
Klanzana-a settlement which begin Tuesday night next to the Ascu, rpiogy 6 between Mori Manganu-camping and hotel has a ski resort at the end of section 9 and the number izovena.

Food water supplies.
Dinner and breakfast in the rpiogy course and expensive breakfast not recommended to take home two piece jams for Maru baguette and butter tea bag small or coffee powder.
Dinner prices between 15-20 most likely Maru and satisfying some really awkward for example pasta salad, fruit plate, will keep the issue of quality in the next table.
-Vegetarians like me, I could eat dinner just four times all the other meat-based meals, and there is no flexibility for you, I had to eat a lot of cheese and bread to make my pasta.
Can I track often took bread and cheese snacks are definitely enough.

Supplies varies greatly from one to the next rpiogy will also be on the table, it is important to know that the first brpiogy not sell food only cookies the value accordingly, f in two lots to eat in, but not to track down the issue.
The sale of supplies varies greatly between the rpiogy ' and some things are harder to get and to value based batteries, gas canisters for example or a paper towel but don't sell padded in all the rpiogy although the bathroom.
Water-when I went June 2 liter enough to walk without filling, fill in the field as possible, but not all section and taking into account that there are many cattle in the area, are fully confident that the course rpiogy in orbit where there is signage Source or where the water come out right out of the wall through plastic pipe so sure the controller failed to mix what he does with water.

The rpiogy
Most are located in beautiful and friendly accommodation areas, there is a large gap between them on the issue of maintenance service and facilities which will always be frozen shower, but equal I think I haven't given up, toilets without toilet paper, kitchen should be equipped with rpiogy, a kitchenette containing mostly just old gas stove must then bring tents Cookware, I occasionally snuck up and used in the kitchen.
Tents for rent (started only last year) cking all the really good places to camp a little irritating, that's it.
Drinking water source, pay attention to the markings that not all taps are allowed to drink.

The rpiogy ' camping tables and some of course subjective data, grades 1-5
Dinner place name supplies the treatment notes
Calinzana No 2 5 not Super have Gite in with everything including gas canisters and several restaurants
4 1 5 2 Piobbu
Carrozzu 5 2 5 4
No Ascu 5 5 5 + meal in a hotel across the street.

Usciolu 3 5 + 4 2
3 3 1 4 Asinau and unpleasant type of weird place Manager
4 3 4 2 Parliri who drinks shower, very far away.
Conca Gite finally 5 5 5 5 hot water in the shower.


Communication
A large portion of the route, there are no particularly cellular communication in its first three days there.
Payphone in Ascu and must track in Vizavona

In summary
Advise on the track and won great rewards I hope the information provided will help people that are less likely the path, just as my foreign information recorded by previous travelers. "

Good luck

Two days ago, actually.
I write a blog post with a detailed summary on the trail and my adventures and once the images reach out for partners, I will here link.

In short – was very challenging and satisfying. The views are very impressive, but maybe because they were not snow-covered Alps (mountain passes or predators in Nepal) fell. The very difficult lifts, and decreases not much fun, but there were many lovely places to stop for a quick refreshment which shame if we had.
The rafiog were relatively comfortable. Not really a must for pre-order, so no need to panic as they put me. :-). Mostly single traveler can always fit in, if not then a place in a rented tent (2 seconds tents of kschwa). We carried our tents up on us (torque and Rainbow 1), then no problem at all-there will always be a place to put a tent near the rafiog. Again all I think and no responsibility at all.
In terms of food, evening meals but expensive full name. It is not always best. רפיוג'ים have no dinner at all, but there's always cooking stove fuel (another item that trust shouldn't carry any), which you can buy a can of Chili Con-screening or ravioli (best.). Always have coke and beer, and if you come at the same time allow for enough to buy a piece of bread.
Most days can pass through several stone cabins branz to selling some locally grown (and coke and beer, of course).

Mm. If you get a few little points before big summary I will try to add them here.

So there is no need for a gas burner?

I realized that sleeping in tent can't use the gas rpiogy

Not by what we saw. Each rafiog was also at least one position with stove fuel (usually 2). I also believe that normally let you use the blowtorch inside, and tools (pots, dishes, סכו"ם), even though it is less official.
