I am 62 yr.old, with all the problems of my age: knee problems, back aches, etc.  Since i turned 60, I am dreaming of doing the trek, partly or entirely at one time.

How do know i can do it?  How do i get partners around my age?

I am thinking of doing the trek this autumn.

Hi Bob

Back aches worry me if I never carry my pack the right way: all weight on your hips not your shoulders.

Knees--that's a seriouse matter, you should talk to a doctor, this may cause you to quit the trail after 1-2 days. What kind of problems?

Maybe you should try and hike some ups and downs near your home and see how they react to a pac 15 kg?

We have a "for" forum where partners are you can post your message

I can do it for you and people will contact you, write all details and we'll take care of it.

There are groups of seniors doing the trail.

You should contact them, or post your message as Zami wrote in rigth forum.
