The site is a stronghold of Fauzi helped. The site has the data in his book translated into English, all within the framework of its project for following Jesus.

Correction: this is not a website. BTW: the project of Oz Jesus trail, just this alone brings hordes of pilgrims to Israel, and I don't mean like buses on the pilgrims and more.

The website link is of Israel. The data book that appears on the site has nothing to Jesus trail. Those data to Madden. The data of 2004, long before Christ at all cost as an idea.

Alink to work in order to have to register or give Alexandra. Here's the post that appears there. Counting. that appears right is because the language ....:

Have you found ' trailjournals.com ' yet? There are the three hikers journals from over the last four years.

20 miles a day is extreme.  I under estimated the trail.  It is nothing like a polished trail such as the PCT or the AU.  Es a gob of hob-many different trails strung together without much upkeep or trail building. This makes the trail much more of a challenge and therefore more fun!

Here are my hints:

First: For heaven sakes buy a guidebook for the trail. This is one in Hebrew and one in English. I hiked the first two weeks with a non-joke of a topo map and it was the pits. Jacob Saar's ' Hike the Land of Israel "is now available. The difference between my experiences with and without a guide were nothing less than profound. You need a guide book!

1. Always wear a hat. My hat was a ' Sunday Afternoons Sport/Adventure ' model. The ' brim hats with ear and neck protection generated a lot of comment from other hikers. It was also a tough hat. I used it as a seat to protect my fanny from thorns.
2. Avoid thorns. Every plant in the Middle East has thorns. The worst are the inch long thorn Acacia. It punctured everything from water bottles to Thermarests.
3. Do not carry a Thermarest mattress. See # 2.
4. Forget the water filter. The open water in the Negev is so green that I think would lift the filter in a matter of liters.
5. Carry water, lots of water. Do not see a stream on a map and header field to find water in the streambed.    Water is available only in areas of civilization. I was lucky twice. I do not know if I would have been lucky three times.
6. Bring your own TP.
7. Hiking poles were a life saver for rocky descents. For flat terrain or climbing I was unimpressed with their usefulness.
8. Forget the bug ". At dusk, the flies disappeared at ... every day like clockwork.
9. Long sleeve t-shirts are best. I used a product Sunday Afternoons and found it to be cool and came with a high SPF factor. Wear it loose.
10. Bring a stocking cap for the night damps. Unlike the west coast of the US it is hottest at noon. It got chilly about 2am.
11. Wear long legged pants. When the Israelis start showing up in shorts (due to heat) you can too.
12. Talk with the locals. Israelis are generous and helpful to hikers. Plus, they are fun to party with.
13. I would make a nylon banner with the initials of the INT in Hebrew and in English. Making yourself known as a hiker to motorists will get you more rides than being just another hitch hiker with a back pack.
14. Carry shade in the Negev. Acacia trees are few and far between as are the walls.40 are shady in a wadi. To paraphrase r. Kipling: "Only mad dogs and hikers go out in the noon day sun." Or as one Network put it: "Even the Arabs don't fight the heat.
My Gossamer ' The One ' single wall tent was light and set up in two minutes. Being able to crawl into a patch of shade during siesta (noon-2pm) was vital to company enjoying this part of the hike.

Have fun and enjoy one of the great trails of the world!
