Hi,

I'm 26 years old (less than a month) and I want to do Israel trail from North to South.

This is because they told me that it's easier to start from the North and that just makes me want to start with trees etc.

I have a lot of questions such as:

One, when should I start? As far as I'm concerned I could start tomorrow is better to wait until after February?

Two, how do I get at it? I.e. how much money to take some equipment, and how shovel water, etc.

Three, is there a book that contains all the information about the Israel trail?

Do I need to take or check maps you don't need? I have a 2000 maps is fine or you need more news?

Four, I'm looking for some people to travel with them to no avail so I started to think about the possibility of traveling alone. Is it dangerous, it is a good idea. I'd love any advice on this topic because I have a fear of not touring myself – though I also have a particular attraction to a btiol only. Your thoughts?

If there's anything else you think we should turn their attention to him love to hear.

First, written in small font. Thanks, easier.

Secondly, and basically everything, there is a lot of information in various forums here, please browse because there is a lot of information.

Questions: what about the gym? What equipment do you have? It is the most important thing. The rest comes alone.

My Gym is medium but I minus increases fast fitness so I don't think that's a problem.

Equipment: backpack (Perino) 80 liters and 45 to Alpine w. less professional. I have shoes of k land with rubber cover and another pair from the same company but leather midsole hard horrible and enough space to add a soft sole. I have a sleeping bag of low cost far below freezing for Perino and other sleeping bag 15 degree's and iongalak's husband.   I have a tent and very professional though is slightly heavier – 2.5 pounds (aluminum rods) and I also have emergency sleeping bag that doesn't come with (also called wind bag). I have a nziniia but I don't like it, it's just a nuisance, infinitely preferable – gas burner I have gas burner. I have clothing for the conditions and thermal clothing.   There are other questions/suggestions regarding the equipment???

And I did find reference material, but most of it is not enough to matter. I go to one of the appointments in Tel Aviv but hoped that concrete tips to give me things I may not think them enclose such food, set a time, water from North to South – whether now is a good time or better to wait a bit and especially what the possibility of traveling alone.

Please ask me any more questions, it helps me focus:-)

Israel

Most importantly the weight. To move 12 kg before water and food. Very heavy tent.

Sleeping bag should not weigh more than 1.3 kg, no need for shoes with Gore-Tex.

If you want to start in February, I would start from the South.

To walk alone. But you can't avoid it too well, meeting and getting to know the other Kings. This all scales, go alone and end day's walk with another friend.

From March on the North course.

This allows you to carry fewer clothes.

Setting water, however, the Forum has a lot of information.

Go alone, but you mlachir ל"התחמק" and the other Kings day walk as well.

The Declaration too heavy.

Get maps, cut parts of the trail or track messages in the forum about scanned maps rotating sections between the company, always have an up-to-date map! Don't go with an old map. The path variable.

Well, I'm not going to go from South to North so it's unnecessary to mention it at all. I just asked whether now or after February is a good time to start the North better another time.

About caching:

I understand that most people commit in advance (by a method I don't know) but it requires them to do field trips along the route – which I don't intend to do!

I don't have the time or equipment (vehicles, etc) to hotia performs like this.

Some people have got it working and nice water mafia for visitors – but I didn't understand where I can find their list i.e. telephone numbers + places kilograms.

Equipment: two pairs of my shoes and sweaty. Gore-Tex is feet, whether it means anything?

Tent? Must/need or without?

What if?

What if a compass and navigate, do I need?

Maps and books: if you have a number of "heavy" scroll?? Maps-map showing the one clearly characters? It just seems ridiculous to walk 14 maps is denoted shashbil.

Food: I'm allergic to rice (Yes there is such a thing) any good alternative?

Hi,

On our site you can find lots of information on for I think a good starting point:
Http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/~litalma/TheShvig/index.html

Look also for "frequently asked questions" and "tips". There is also an introduction to Israel that lists everything you need to know.

Considering that the winter not too rainy year (except today ) and if you don't have time you can make ends meet and set out for a week and have good weather.
Walk in the mud and rain ruining the trip but I think if you're beautiful days in advance planning if rain remains in one of the closest communities so it could be cool.

The cost of the path is relatively low, especially basic food cooking.

No problem to travel alone. During the busiest times of the trail (March-April or September-October) there are plenty of strolling on the trail and allow any time to join that go your way for a few days, if it fits go along and if not then split up.

In short, I think you start exploring our site and Forum and if you wake up more questions we will be happy to answer them.
